At present the UN has deployed 10,000 peacekeepers in southern Sudan and 17,000 peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of Congo. But not a single peacekeeper has been sent to protect the vulnerable in Darfur.
This despite the fact that 400,000 people, mostly women and children, have been murdered in Darfur during the past two years. And 2.5 million lives hang by a slender thread.
Meanwhile, the politicians still insist there is a meaningful role for the UN in the area of protecting those in greatest need.
