Jim Dunnigan looks at Darfur, and doesn’t see much hope:
Talk of UN sanctions against the Sudanese government won’t help, as the problem is hundreds of thousands of refugees dying from disease and starvation, because of the violence and disorder, in the next few months. Diplomacy, so far, has not worked. The government has lied to the head of the UN and the U.S. Secretary of State. The refugees will probably die, and many in the media and diplomatic community will blame the United States.
But will the French dare bash us for inaction?
