Western intervention necessary in Sudan

Posted: Thursday, July 22, 2004

The Sudanese government has no ambition to stop the massacre in Darfur and when the African Union and the Arab League ignore the humanitarian crisis, a Western intervention is called for.

The good powers in the European Union and the United States should use the United Nations to put pressure on the regime in Khartoum. The Sudanese government should be aware that foreign troops may be used to protect the civilian population from further assaults.

But, then again, demands by Washington are not enough. It's time for Berlin and Paris to wake up.

The treachery at Darfur risks to be just as devastating as that which we all so recently wept for, Rwanda.
