Stop the Genocide in Darfur: Bribe the Chinese
Posted November 14,2005:
You have to give the Bush administration’ s deputy
secretary of state Robert B. Zoellick credit: he certainly
appears to be doing the best he can to stop the genocidal
violence in Sudan’ s Darfur region. He has been to the area
four times in six months and, as was reported this week,
has met with the President of Sudan as well as with the
warring rebel factions. He has been ‘ fact finding’ in the
refugee camps, he has listened to the African Union’ s peacekeeping
commanders describe what is happening and he has listened
to what the government officials responsible for the region
have had to say. Listening and fact finding are crucial
elements of diplomatic intervention and Zoellick is by all
accounts a skilled and honest negotiator and deal-maker.
But the violence continues; men, women and children are
being senselessly murdered everyday by the so-called “janjaweed,”
Sudanese government sponsored militia on horseback, and
no amount of political discourse appears likely to bring
these rampaging cowboys (janjaweed means ‘ gun and horse’
) to heel.
