Franklin Graham Calls for Airstrikes in Sudan

I encourage you to please take a moment and read this week's commentary on the crisis in Sudan by Rev. Franklin Graham of Samaritan's Purse. After a recent trip to the Nuba mountains, Franklin concludes that the appropriate course of action for the US to take would be to destroy the airbases in El Obeid which are being used to wage an aerial terror campaign against innocent women and children of the Nuba.

I commend Franklin Graham for taking this bold stand, and I pray that everyone who wants to stop the current genocide in Sudan will join Franklin in pressing the Obama Administration to take this action to protect innocent lives in Sudan.

GRAHAM: Bombing Sudan's air bases only way to protect innocents

By Franklin Graham

I have seen what happens when the world turns its back and looks the other way. For 20 years I have worked in Sudan, helping its people struggle through the horrors of starvation and murderous attacks. During Sudan's civil war, the people in the south were being butchered. Shockingly, it took the deaths of more than 2 million before the world finally called it genocide.

When President George W. Bush came to office, he didn't look the other way. Instead, he engaged all parties and forced them to sit down to negotiate what we hoped would be an end to the violence. Those discussions resulted in the agreement that led to the independence of South Sudan.
