More on Darfur

Anyone wishing to get more into the Darfur situation might want to check out this from the Council on Foreign Relations. Particularly interesting are the video clips in part 1 (The Grim Reality) and part 5 (The Untested Doctrine).

The Grim Reality demonstrates the human side of the conflict, which often gets lost as disputes over how many hundreds of thousand have been killed turn suffering into a statistics exercise. In The Untested Doctrine, Lee Feinstein persuasively argues in favour of action in Darfur on the part of the International Community, regardless of whether the UN gets round to approving this.

***AND the UN has just approved a 26,000-strong joint UN-AU force to be deployed before 1 January 2008 (BBC)***
