I was asked a question I could not answer. What are we hoping to accomplish and how? Do we want more peacekeepers who do nothing but watch as the Darfurians are raped, tortured, enslaved, and murdered horrendoursly? How are we going to stop these tyrants? This is a religious war. Muslims against Muslims, though!

What specifically do we want Washington to do? I know what I want. I want to send in the Calvary!

You do know where they got that name from, don't you? :)

I understand we want to be anti-violent, but that does not especially mean peace. Just seaking some answers...
