What is happening in Darfur Sudan?

There is a genocide, an enthnic cleansing if you will, still occurring in Darfur. Sparked from decades of famine, drought, and oppression it only gets worse as time goes on. With the rise of militia groups, the Sudanese government, in 2003, sent their own, well armed, well funded militia group to reek havoc in the area of Darfur.
The Sudanese governments military is mainly funded by oil revenues, the countries major money maker. Over 70% of oil profits go to the military. This poses a problem to the people of Darfur, as the largest of these oil fields lies in South darfur, while the government is in the North. UN action has been rare as both China and Russia benefit from Sudanese oil, and both Russia and China are veto powers on the Security Council.
450,000 people have been murdered, 2.5 million are hungry, and 4.5 are displaced.
It is a crisis that is complicated, multi faceted, and complex.
