It didn't take long- EU will not declare genocide

As I posted earlier, it appears the EU will not label the slaughter of Darfur Christians and Animists, genocide.

In the AP report,

The European Union last month stated that it was up to the U.N. to say whether the abuse suffered by Darfur's black African population amounted to genocide, saying it did not have adequate evidence.

"We are extremely concerned," E.U. spokesman Jean-Charles Ellermann-Kingombe said Thursday.

"We have not discussed specifically the use of the word genocide. For us, we have noted that there is an extremely serious situation that still requires a huge humanitarian aid effort...

"We concluded that we would still contemplate the possibility of sanctions," he said.

How nice.
