Darfur update

BEIJING (AP) — A joint peacekeeping force planned for Darfur remains threatened by political deadlock and a shortage of equipment, the head of U.N. peacekeeping said Wednesday.

The 26,000-strong peacekeeping force may not be a reality. Remember, the U.N. and A.U. are putting this force together with no help from the U.S. or Europe. They thought they could pull it off with mostly African nations participating. Come on, Europe! Pitch in! You don't really expect US to keep the peace in Darfur, do you?
