    Could it be any slower getting AU troops deployed in Darfur? Are they walking there? Do they need air transport? Nigeria must have at least a couple of C130s that could be used. I think the "logistics" delay is code for political delay. Anyway, here's a story about Rwanda troops delayed a week because of "logistics." We must hope they do a better job of preventing genocide in Darfur than they did in their own country.

    YAY, thousands more will die as the world does nothing. let's all celebrate the triumph of evil in darfur. terrorists are winning and no one gives a damn. we all know damn well if a few certain powerful countries (Britain, cough, France, cough, America, cough) put their all into making an intervention happen (w/wo UN approval), this bullshit would stop immediately. sadly, this ain't bound to happen any time soon.

    btw, China and Russia are celebrating as well. Their victory over US human rights is total and complete.

    Hear, Hear! I'd like to see Bush actually prove he has the high moral ground and help Darfur.

    in all fairness, its not about moral high ground... the prez has very difficult decisions to make that most politicians have no idea of... the army is tied up in iraq... the american people seem to be growing weary, what more can he do at this point? the onus is on the american people to support their leaders, not second guess them.... prez. bush may feel he'll be second guessed at every turn if he tries to do something, especially during the election season

    I agree NATO and most reasonable people are aware of this yet the damn left has to bitch about Korea, Iran, Sudan , Saudi Arabia etc etc. If they are serious then they can start writing their declarations of war. THEY ARE NOT IMPOTENT yet the act like it and blame Bush. PUT UP OR SHUT UP . Let's see how this flies when the Dems start carrying this flag!!

    Not to mention the numerous things one can do to help as an individual, NGO's would be perfectly happy to accept volunteers.
