New York Times' reporting on Darfur worsens

Note how Nicholas Kristof, an American columnist for the New York Times, informs his readers of the complex situation in Sudan. In his latest commentary entitled Darfur: When Genocide Worsens he concludes by saying:
So here's a suggestion: Let's charter a few cargo planes to carry the corpses of hundreds of new victims from Darfur and Chad to the U.N. The butchered victims of Darfur could lie in state as a memorial to global indifference - and as a spur to become serious about the first genocide of the 21st century.
Also, among other pieces of his advice, he tells his readers:
"we need to press Europeans to become more involved."
What a cheek. Which Europeans does he speak of? Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany , Greece, Ireland, Italy, Slovenia, Sweden, Netherlands, United Kingdom and all the other members of the European Union? Not to mention other European countries like Norway, Switzerland, Monaco, Russia? As if they've not been heavily involved all along. If it weren't for the European Union, the African Union and its peacekeepers would not even exist!

Kristof makes my blood boil. He fails to properly inform his readers. Perhaps he thinks they are more stupid than himself.

at least he is reporting something about Darfur. No other American newspaper is spilling any ink at all on the story. I say give him props thank him for keeping it in the paper at all.
