Darfur update

LONDON (AFP) — Arab League Secretary-General Amr Mussa said Wednesday the situation in strife-torn Darfur was not hopeless and peace talks could resume, as long as certain conditions are met.

"Darfur is not a helpless case, it is a case that needs cooperation," Mussa told a conference at the Chatham House foreign policy think-tank in London.

The hard part is getting all the different groups to cooperate. And check out this excerpt!
Mussa said a joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force should be ready for deployment in the strife-torn western Sudanese area "by the spring."

Isn't U.N.A.M.I.D. already, you know, THERE? Oh, yeah, that's right, all they did was spray paint the green helmets blue. Let's hope THIS force is of a decent size!
