Darfur update

ABU SUROUJ, Sudan: As Darfur smolders in the aftermath of a new government offensive, a long-sought peacekeeping force, expected to be the largest in the world, is in danger of failing even before it begins its mission because of bureaucratic delays, stonewalling by the Sudanese government and reluctance from troop-contributing countries to send peacekeeping forces into an active conflict.
You know what would be nice?  If the UN was powerful enough to adequately carry out this mission, and didn't need to beg for help from the US and China.  But since the UN isn't that big...COME ON, GUYS!
