    waiting fot the UN

    i dare you to cross this line, cross THAT line, cross this line...

    Although the United Nations gave the Sudanese government until last Tuesday to end the Darfur crisis or face unspecified sanctions, the day came and passed without fanfare.

    Meanwhile, the marauding Janjaweed militiamen have continued killing civilians, this is according to the reports being broadcast and published by regional and international media houses.

    Although the peace process being held in Abuja, Nigeria reported that Khartoum last week pledged to disarm the Janjaweed, nothing of the sort has happened.

    Despite the pledge, pundits think the Sudanese government won't be able to disarm a militia it says it doesn't control nor approve its activities.

    The UN gave Sudan 30 days to try and disarm the Janjaweed-militia. On Tuesday, the 30 days were over, on Thursday (yesterday) the report (by Jan Pronk) was discussed. Did you want troops there today? Or are you going to give them time to actually fly over there?
    Pronk's conclusion is that the Sudanese government isn't capable of totally eliminating the voilence and of securing the security of its people, and proposes to add more troops to the AU (African Union). He also concluded that in fact the Sudanese government did end most of the violence and added to its police force, but for some reason or another the US doesn't agree with that conclusion (I wonder why since they don't have anyone there...) and demands sanctions (cool... more misery for the Sudanese).
    The debate about the sanctions is next week...

    By which time another few thousand would have been killed and probably a bunch simply starved to death....

    This epitomizes the problem with the UN. They have had 30 days to discuss any action they are going to take.... What did they do??? They sat on their hands and comtemplated their navels..... Oh, now we should start the long drawn out process of negotiating a course of action..... Give it a month or two and they will have agreed.... Then, because they are the UN they will give the Sudan one last chance.... another 30 days probably......

    I'm sure you're all smart enough to know where this is going........

    Get rid of the UN.... It is a powerless, disfunctional institution that only adds to the problems it claims to be trying to solve!
    Don\'t SYN us.... We\'ll SYN you.....

    It's not about agreeing or not, it's about being able to agree. The UN sent troops, and even with their help the Sudanese government couldn't solve its problems. What exactly is it you guys want done? Sanctions like the US government wants? Like what? Denying them help? Bombing them for not being able to solve hunger-problems?

    what about declaring it genocide like it is... and which kofi refuses to admit and should have done a long time ago. Stronger action can be taken then instead of allowing sudan to hand pick what troops can and what troops cant come into the country without upsetting the poor babies. the only differance between this and Checnia is that its arabs killing blacks. the government of the suddan has armed and encouraged the janaweed. now they sit back and and take no action saying they have no control over what happens. bring the leaders before the oh so holy world court. isnt that what its for?

    There's two main problems here, these governments who've joined the UN and act rouge from the laws it's set down, expect to get away with it. Now, this isn't one of the main problems, the main problem is that there is (other then war or war-like tactics) no way to control these people. Also, no one wants a war (unless psychotic).

    Therefore, the UN needs to find a balance between aggression... I think it would be good if they slowly disconnected them from the rest of the free-world, starting with baning migration into the nation, second being trade, and so on until they at a later date decide they want to join back up with the benifits.

    Balance is hard, so is sticking to your guns with a delecate problem, when the only real power is one that no one wants to use.

    by the time the the un gets around to acting all the black africans will be dead there
    I find it amazing that this conflict seems to be aimed at eradicating the BLACK population from their own lands, sanctioned by their own government .........

    I've read that the government is an Arab based one ........... Africa NOT Arabia

    If these conditions where being attempted ANYWHERE else, there would be hell to pay.
    We seem incapable of saying STOP, to those that in our own country would be a minority.

    It appears that all those years of Political Correctness, have left us incapable of saying the unpallettable truth about Africa; That maybe the safest / best times for that continent were when it was under colonial control.

    And THAT is one shitty scary thought ................

    We need to be able to shout from the roof tops that what those bastards are doing is plain wrong / evil / insupportable, without them being able to play the 'colonialist / imperialist' card.

    We have [hopefully] come a long way since those dark days. The UN needs to grow a new set of 21st century balls.[hopefully Kofi will choke on them] And come out of the closet, AND DEMAND THEY STOP NOW.

    As for the UN:

    Don't even go there .......................
