Measures need to be carried out promptly in Darfur

Kofi Annan, the U.N. Secretary-General adressed a statement to the Sudanese government showing concern of its inability to stop what has been previously called as the worst humanitarian crisis in history.

Annan spoke on Wednesday as his special representative for Darfur, Dutchman Jan Pronk, briefed the 15-member Security Council on reports that Arab militia, called Janjaweed, were continuing to terrorise African villagers in Sudan's west.

The 15-month conflict has killed at least 30,000 people, forced villagers into concentration-camp type compounds and left 2 million people without enough food and medicine, reports Reuters.

"There have been encouraging steps on the humanitarian front," Annan said at a news conference. "But there has been little progress on human rights and I regret to say there are continuing reports of attacks by the Janjaweed militia."

"The urgency is there, and the Sudanese government doesn't have forever," Annan told a news conference after Pronk - Annan's special representative in Khartoum, briefed the U.N. Security Council on Darfur.

The rebels promised Annan in a July 3 agreement that they would crack down on the Janjaweed militia and other outlawed rebel groups, but Pronk said the government has made "no progress whatsoever" in honoring its pledge.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
