Darfur crisis tops U.S. list of world’s worst abuses. Please forgive us if we are not impressed but including Iraq in the list deserve appreciation. Thanks to your dangerous foreign policy that is aimed at trashing the sovereignty of other nations and making the world a more dangerous place. But this post was (I hope) less about US foreign policy, and more about Darfur. So with a little bit of US foreign policy out of the way, it’s worth getting back to the point, Darfur. Darfur is in a nightmare that is alive here today and perhaps somewhere else tomorrow. No doubt, the western world has been paying attention to Darfur for nearly four years. During that time, some 400,000 people have died, and millions more have been displaced. In recent months, as the situation in Darfur has deteriorated and as the killing fields have stretched further into the neighboring Chad, US State Department has busied itself with the crafting the list of world’s worst abuses and the holding of press conferences. Having an adequate security presence in each area will help stabilize the situation. But that’s not to say as we all know to what degree this contempt extends. UN with its incompetent effort to authorize a peacekeeping mission stands nowhere. And China and France aren’t interested in changing the status quo, because they have oil interests in Sudan. I think there is a need for a list that includes these countries with veto powers on their desks whenever they slip on those benches in UN and are least bothered about the dire situation wherever they have interests. These worse situations work just in their interests and they leave no stone unturned to make that infinitely worse. With that list, Darfur is on the top of the world’s worst abuses and is likely to hold that place for the coming years too and don’t you expect any good from the impotent UN. But I think the sole responsibility lies with us to make this world a better place to live and blogs like this one (here) have some really good ideas about what we can do to stop the violence in Darfur.
