Darfur update

Just in case you were wondering:  No, things aren’t getting any better in Darfur, Sudan.  Things seem to be getting worse, and the African Union “peacekeepers seem to be getting their operating instructions from the UN, meaning that they aren’t keeping any peace, just protecting foreigners.

Professor Eric Reeves has been arguing for NATO intervention, and I have made noises like that myself for a while now.  He also has a couple of great maps of the region.
