Darfur update

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Aid groups urged the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday to set a 30-day deadline for Sudan to stop obstructing the planned January 1 deployment of U.N.-African Union peacekeepers to Darfur or face sanctions.

"The new hybrid peacekeeping force for Darfur is being set up to fail," said a statement from 35 aid groups.

The U.N. had nothing but good things to say about UNAMID, making it sound like a surefire way to quell the violence in Darfur. Well, the proper attitude towards any idea is a skeptical one. UNAMID will be worlds better than the AU force currently down there. Let's just hope the Sudanese government takes some action to help...oh, I don't know...STOP THE VIOLENCE.

  1. The UN wastes money on countries that will not improve, such as Sudan. They should spend it on something better, or just dissipate, as they have proved to be of no use.
