The U.S. Secretary of State has called the situation a "ticking time bomb." The CIA has said that "mass killing or genocide is most likely to occur in Southern Sudan." President Obama has said that "the stakes are enormous."
The last war between the North and South Sudan was ended by a U.S.-led peace process, but not before two and a half million men, women, and children perished. And we know about the atrocities that have been on going in Darfur for the past 7 years. Now we have an opportunity to halt a war before it begins.and hundreds of thousands die.
What can we do? Take action here by sending a message to President Obama. <http://www.sudanactionnow.org/take-action>
