Monkey See, Monkey DoUN see, UN do.
Nothing, that is. US ambassador to the UN, John Danforth gives in to the security council and its desire to watch people die. Harsh? Well then ACT! And what is with the Arab League? They say a sufficient time-frame is needed for the Sudanese government to comply. You order people to stop attacks. They stop.
One of the things John Danforth said:
We don't want to impose sanctions on Sudan, we want Sudan to be prosperousNever mind Darfur and it's dead, starving and terrorised people. As long as the country is prosperous.
I know I keep throwing in links, but if anyone really cares to know some good background, Robert Corr has done a great post on Sudan. It's very informative; that is, quite the opposite of most of what you'll get here.
