African Union Needs NATO Support


 African Union needs NATO Support in Darfur


The militias have
continued to harass the civilian population, burning people out of
their homes, in defiance of international protests. In order to give
them the flexibility they need, the AU wants Nato countries to provide
logistical support, including communications, and the heavy-lifting
capacity which no African armies have at their disposal.

Our national priorities are out of whack. A relatively small amount of
money could equip willing AU troops to help end the conflict in the
Sudan and we continue to ignore the problem.  We should not care more
about what Bono thinks of Paul Martin than the thousands dying in
Africa.
