Darfur peace talks, if only...

Peace talks for Sudan's genocide-ravaged Darfur region opened on Saturday in Libya — home to leader Colonel Qaddafi, the dictatorial, pan-African, 'we have no right to intervene in their business'-ist. The Sudanese government pretended that they were the good guy by declaring a ceasefire; many key rebel groups are boycotting the meeting. The government has been both directly and indirectly supporting and encouraging ethnic cleansing in Darfur, while hampering humanitarian efforts there.

A peace deal is vital to the success of UN forces arriving in the region later this year.
