Firepower needed to keep Darfur peace

In the end, the problem in these situations is not just humanitarian, it is that unless the opposing sides can be kept apart – and that requires military force – it is very difficult for the humanitarian aid to be effective

    You are absolutely right. It’s a vicious cycle – without peace there cannot be aid, without aid there cannot be peace.

    … and for now the road to peace is through some “shoot ’em up” action and I say yes… enough violence is being committed against women and children and the fact that no one is doing anything is beyond appalling.

    I remember as a child, in history class, upon first learning of Hitler, my reaction and horror to that fact… the lecture ended with our teacher telling us that we have learned the lesson and that history would not repeat itself…

    … the bitch lied.
