    Per Fox News Channel:

    U.S. Embassy Compound has been hit by a mortar bomb. U.S. Marines are on their way to guard it in Monrovia.

    10s of thousands of people are surrounding the US embassy trying to get in and take shelter, they are saying. Aid organizations are evacuating the country.

    Let us pray, Brothers and Sisters. Things are getting bad there. [​IMG]

    Update: It was the U.S. Embassy compound that was hit (not the actual building itself), but 50 people were killed.

    Please pray. We have Baptist Missionaries over there - some from ABWE and Baptist Mid-Missions as well as others, plus many, many national Baptist pastors and Christians there. [​IMG]

    This certainley is one awful situation, one that we need to keep in Prayer.

    I noted that in the media people are demanding that the U.S get involved. Begs the question, where is the so called United Nations? Didnt everyone say that in Iraq war, no action should be taken without a UN Mandate?

    If we had a military to send, I would agree with you :D

    Because the UN has become nothing more than a useless debating society. It demonstrated its inability to act, even upon its own resolutions, prior to the beginning of the Iraq War.

    They are, UN speed however, can be best described as glacial.

    "...There is no country on earth that has witnessed more abuses and atrocities than has The Sudan. Over the past two decades, the Muslim government in Khartoum has murdered over two million people. Most of the dead are women and children. The reason they were killed? They were Christians.

    Furthermore, slavery is very much alive and well in The Sudan. Children are sold into slavery by the thousands. Women are bought and sold as sex slaves in equal numbers.

    Beyond that, death in The Sudan is extremely tortuous and heinous. Children are forced to watch as their mothers are raped and disemboweled and their fathers are crucified. The cruelty committed by The Sudan's government soldiers against innocent people is incomprehensible to those of us in America.

    Yet, the Bush administration has shown absolutely no interest in sending U.S. troops to help stop the carnage in The Sudan. Why? The Khartoum government makes Saddam Hussein look like a choir boy. If deposing a murderous regime is justification for invading a foreign country, certainly The Sudan qualifies.

    Beyond that, The Sudan is rich in oil, almost as rich as Iraq. So, why do the oil giants who control America's politicians not clamor for a "just war" against The Sudan?

    The reason is simple: major U.S. oil companies are already operating in The Sudan, and they are protected by Communist Chinese troops. That's right. U.S. oil companies in concert with Communist China control the oil fields of The Sudan.

    Therefore, with the blessing and protection of China, the Khartoum government wages an unrestricted and unchallenged war of genocide against the Christians of southern Sudan. And all the while, the U.S. government looks the other way.

    The moral high tones used by the Bush administration for justifying an unconstitutional war in Iraq and soon in Liberia becomes nothing more than dull cacophony when one takes a look at its policy, or lack of one, toward The Sudan.
