Amnesty International has accused China and Russia of violating a U.N. arms embargo against Sudan. The human rights organization says the weapons end up in Darfur, where they are used against civilians in the ongoing genocide. The two Security Council members deny any wrongdoing.


BBC:

China and Russia have denied claims by Amnesty International that they are supplying arms to Sudan for use in Darfur, in breach of a UN arms embargo.

A report by the rights group says the weapons end up in the hands of the government-backed Janjaweed militia.

It also includes apparent photographic evidence of Sudan using military aircraft camouflaged white in Darfur.

Amnesty International has only accused of China and Russia and obviously forgot Bush/Cheney and their criminal administration.

My question is this: will the US actually do anything, like cutting trade with China or condemning at the UN, because of their selling arms to Sudan? Probably not, because the administration is not exactly in the position to call out UN violations, since their war in Iraq is completely against International law.
