The sheer enormity or great evil of the conflict in Darfur is almost unimaginable: many hundreds of thousands have been brutally killed so far. The enormity and horrors of the crimes committed become clear when one visits the refugee camps, where one finds young children and women who have lost all hope. Many journalists who visit Darfur come back shocked and depressed because they are totally unprepared for the enormity or extreme moral offensiveness of the human tragedy they have witnessed.
