Come Together: Eugene Oregon of the "ultraliberal" Demagogue and Feddie of the "ultraconservative" Southern Appeal have joined forces to create a new blog called Coalition for Darfur. They want to use the power of the Internet to raise awareness about the genocide in Sudan, and also raise some money to do something about it.

As most of you should know, Eugene has been very active publicizing the ongoing murders taking place in Sudan with his "Daily Darfur" posts. While Eugene and Feddie don't agree on much politically, they have both been class acts when discussing whatever pressing issues dominate the news. Now they have found something worth taking a stand on together.

They have asked a number of bloggers, including this one, to post a link to their new site and run blog posts every week about the Sudan tragedy. Hopefully we can help inform more people about the horrors going on in that country and also remind people that it's in America's best interest to help stop it, considering Sudan plays a role in trafficking arms to terrorists and even provided a safe haven for Osama bin Laden.

President Bush and Congress have declared the abuses in Darfur officially to be genocide. Yet, they won't do anything about it, and the United Nations doesn't have the backbone to address the problem. It's tragically ironic that the one issue that everyone -- Left, Right, and Middle -- can agree that something needs to be done is the one issue the United States and world governments conspicuously ignore.
