President Bush: Please LEAD On Darfur


We now have less than two months until the Beijing Olympic Games begin on August 8.

I urge all villagers to write a letter to President Bush asking him to lead on Darfur. The UN Security Council has just returned from its trip to Africa, where it visited the Darfur region.

During June, as President of the Security Council, the United States is in a unique position to exert its influence to ensure that the peacekeepers and civilian police authorized almost a year ago by the UN are deployed immediately.

Write to President Bush now and tell him how crucial his leadership is in urging China and other Security Council members to deploy the peacekeeping force to Darfur.

Torrance - I'll head off to your blog shortly to see your message. The title is provacative!

Villager...I ain't trying to be funny but to write Bush is an assumption that the idiot can read. Just don't have any faith in this man to do the right thing, now.

Sojourner - I am an eternal optimist. I'm hoping that George Bush will use his final weeks and months in office to improve on his legacy by doing the right thing. What better arena than to do right in Africa in advance of Obama coming to the White House...

I hear you Villager. Wish I could be that optimistic. We'll see...we'll see
