New York Times editorial published today, echoing Enough’s policy on Sudan:
"…The African Union (seeking to protect one of its own), some Arab states (Libya rates special condemnation), and China (mesmerized by Sudan’s oil riches) are pressing the United Nations Security Council to delay the indictment for a year to give peace talks in Darfur a chance. The United States and its allies should block any such move. Mr. Bashir’s defenders have made that same argument ever since the court prosecutor sought the arrest warrant in November. Four months later, government attacks continue, and it is clear that Mr. Bashir has absolutely no interest in peace."
"During the campaign, President Obama pledged strong action to halt genocide in Darfur. Strong action is definitely needed. A United Nations peacekeeping force is still short of troops and equipment. Mr. Obama should press America’s allies to contribute both — and guarantee that the Pentagon will get them there quickly. He should encourage China to stop supplying the weapons wielded by Khartoum’s army and militias and call on the rest of the world to tighten sanctions on Mr. Bashir’s cronies in hopes that they will finally oust him."
