Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You know Sirocco, I had so far off-handedly avoided all articles in the press about the situation in the Darfur. This is something I had sensed, as soon as it started, as highly depressing ... so I had thought it best to be uniformed rather than be depressingly informed. I knew the general bits, but nothing more.

Your thread has let me catch up with all the information that I have missed, thanks for a comprehensive diary ... but god what a depressing mess the Darfur is and what a bloody useless bunch we western nations have become.

But it's not just the west, if that's any consolation. (Hardly...) See my reply to Bob below.
