Is It Time To Invade Yet?

With the Sudanese government continuing to make threats to those who may participate in a U.N. mission in Darfur, it seems unlikely that they are going to willingly accept such a force any time soon. Is there going to be a point at which we say 'enough is enough' and go in anyway? Because if there isn't then we should stop wringing our hands about it and admit to the people of Darfur that their lives aren't worth an international incident. I'm sure that the little girl getting raped on her way to get water will understand that we would like to stop what is happening to her, but we would like more that all the U.N. member nations get along without any awkwardness. Do you know what it is like to have to look an ambassador in the face after you support a Chapter 7 resolution against his country?
