Yahoo! News - Annan to Visit Sudan to Press Government on Darfur

On first reading this headline I thought, "This is a good thing!" And I guess, in a way, I still think it is good they're recognising something needs to happen, except for one little problem. Nothing is going to happen. What does Kofi Annan say? " is the responsibility of the government to protect the population, and we need to encourage it and must insist it does it."

You....idiot. Problem one: government forces are intimately involved in the ethnic cleansing taking place, side by side with the enlisted help of the janjaweed militia. Problem two: that was the UN plan in Rwanda, alert the government that a massacre might be about to take place so they could take necessary steps to avoid it. Too bad it was the government planning the massacre, but thanks for the heads-up guys!
