Kofi to U.S.: Sudan is YOUR Problem!

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Secretary-General Kofi Annan' intends to ask President George W. Bush on Monday what the United States can contribute to a mobile UN force to stop the killings, rape and pillaging in Sudan's Darfur region.
"It is not going to be easy for the big and powerful countries with armies to delegate to third world countries. They will have to play a part if we are going to stop the carnage that we see in Darfur," Annan told reporters on Thursday.
Asked if Bush would be asked to participate, Annan said, "I will share with him the facts that I have shared with you, the needs that we have, and the countries that I think can supply those needs, and that will include the U.S."

How many years has the UN been mucking up things in the Sudan? And now they want to send American troops into combat against a heavily armed Muslim militia in Africa?
Typical liberal warmaking - using your armed forces to protect your country is automatically an evil, imperialistic act, but going into a poor war-torn country where you have no business being in is OK; regardless of the potential cost in lives/prestige/treasure.
The world can't have it both ways; they must decide if the US is a dark, hegomonic power or an actual force for good in this world. Before Bush commits a single Hummer to this mission, I want to hear 'ol Kofi say, loud and clear, that we are the world's best hope; the one nation good citizens of the world can turn to in a dark hour. I want him to strike out verbally against the America-bashers that populate his own offices; the ones whom work against us in matters of both war and peace, and set them straight, clearly and publicly.

If he can't bring himself to speak the truth about how the UN brought us to this point, and how only the US can save their sorry asses, than President Bush should not lift a finger to help. After all, we wouldn't want to be unilateralists...
