The ultimate WMD

Guardian:

Aid agencies were today warning of looming famine and a humanitarian crisis in Darfur, western Sudan, where up to a million people have been driven from their homes by government-backed militias.

The arid desert region is hit by a cyclical "hunger gap" from April until harvest-time in October, but attacks on towns and villages by the "Janjawid" mounted Arab militias, which human rights observers say include members of the armed forces, have exacerbated the crisis this year.

Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), which is also operating in the area said the threat of famine was "looming" in Darfur. A nutrition survey conducted by the agency showed dangerously high levels of malnutrition and mortality, with a rapidly deteriorating food security situation.

With already high levels of "excess death" and malnutrition, the whole population was "teetering on the verge of mass starvation", MSF warned.


It is intersting that this always happens when Islamist take over a government and look for a cheap way to get rid of a population they deem undesirable. It happened in Somalia, and Afghanistan already. Sudan has been trying to git rid of its non Muslim population for years.

Communist were the most efficient with this WMD. Stalin killed 17 million in the Ukraine. Mao killed untold millions. That doen't count Cambodia where impatience communist used more direct means to kill 2.5 million after Democrats pulled the US out of Southeast Asia. More recently Robert Mugabe has been using famine to get rid of his opponents.
