Why is no one taking any notice about what's happening in Darfur?

The slaughter goes in Darfur, and still, no one takes any notice. As Desmond Tutu put's it:
This summer, after 30 days of war between Israel and Hezbollah, and a thousand dead, the international community rightly intervened and dispatched UN peacekeepers. After 3½ years, and an estimated 300,000 to 400,000 dead in Darfur, it is still unclear if a United Nations force will be sent. We Africans conclude that double standards apply to our continent.
