Darfur on Google Earth

The Sudan government, who is denying the genocide in Darfur, should download Google Earth. If you find Darfur and zoom down, click on the red flame. It warns you that you may see graphic images, you say OK, and then lots of little flames and other icons appear (provided by Google and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) giving relevant information about the villages that used to be there using pictures, video, eyewitness accounts, etc.

I tested this on both Mac and Windows.
