The paper discusses the horrific violence and barbaric civil war which broke out in the Sudanese providence of Darfur. The paper details the conflict that resulted in tens of thousands of deaths, millions of individuals displaced, and still other tens of thousand refugees. While the conflict arose from racial tensions in the area between various primary groups, the involvement of the Sudanese government in the genocide of Africans added a layer of complexity to the fighting that would otherwise have been unachievable. The paper discusses the Darfur conflict in terms of the terrorism of the Janjaweed, or Arabic fighters of southern Darfur, and the crimes against humanity committed by those individuals. The paper clearly shows that although the Sudanese government denied involvement with the Janjaweed, the situation in Darfur is clearly governmental supported terrorism.
