NATO Helping Out In Darfur

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: KOTP)

NATO is to study how it can help African Union forces in the troubled Sudanese region of Darfur after being approached by the AU for talks, an alliance spokesman said on Wednesday.

It would be the 26-nation alliance's first involvement in a mission on African soil, although NATO officials stressed talks would centre on options for logistical support rather than any major deployment of NATO troops.

Finally their seems to be some "effort" to help end the chaos in Dafur, but from the looks of it these may just be "talks" of getting involved rather than preparation for active engagement. France it seems is a little reluctant to enter into the "fray," but as long as the United States, Germany and England are involved, help may be on the way for this war torn region.

And help is definitely needed in a region, especially when one does not understand the word "genocide."
The U.N. defines genocide, "as an act committed with intent to destroy, in whole or part, a national, ethnical, or religious group." The phrase "in whole or part" has the international community debating how much is too much, as if we are waiting for the whole to be fulfilled with no regard to the part that has already been fulfilled. Compared to the South Sudan, Darfur hasn't lost as many civilians. Are we waiting for Darfur to catch up? The genocide in Darfur is fulfilling the reasoning behind genocide which is to destroy cultures and/or re-induct the survivors into the image of the conqueror through language, education, and customs.

Although the African Union might be nervous about NATO's involvement on the dark continent, (after all, it was once viciously colonized by Europe) the West's display of support in the Sudan region could possibly go a long ways towards curbing some of the violence happening in Dafur. With European and American backing, the soon-to-be 6,000 infantry powered AU peace keepers could what is needed to stabilize a complex situation, and restore some degree of civility to an area known mostly for it's brutal violence.
