Well this should solve things

Gambia is sending 200 troops to Darfur to supplement the 800 that are there already. Thank god for that, now we can all go to bed tonight confident that the situation is resolved.

If we're not going to get serious about ending the crisis, then I really wish we would just own up to that fact. All of this hand wringing over what to do is obscene. At the very least, the government in Khartoum is failing to protect its own people. Time's up, you have lost all legitimate claims to state sovereignty. Let's get in there and stop this.

Failing that, who wants to start planning the commemoration activities for ten years from now? We could hold joint events, "10 years since Darfur, 20 years since Rwanda". (and probably five years since something else, we'll have to wait and see).
