Darfur Conflict Heralds Era Of UN Stupidity Triggered by Climate Change
The behavior of the UN regarding Darfur and the whole of the Sudan is nothing short of scandalous:
(1) The UN were unable to broker a peace between North and South Sudan, and had to rely on non-UN negotiators
(2) The UN could then do nothing at all apart from chatting, to prevent the Darfur civil war and genocide, started not by chance almost exactly when the North-South Sudanese civil war ended
(3) And now, the UN is trying to blame (global) climate change when it has nothing to do with Darfur, where the conflict is about the local vast, untapped underground resources, something that has bloodied Sudan for more than 24 years now (one wonders if this would be news for the “diplomatic editor” of a major British newspaper?)
There is absolutely no need to shove in “climate change”: look no further than the Sahel area in Niger, where rains have come back after the local government has finally decided to take care of its trees.
The downside of the absurdity of the UN intervention, its stupidity, is that time and money will be spent to tackle a non-problem, whilst the real culprits will get an easier ride simply by pointing out “climate change” is somebody else’s fault.
And so, as the actual issues are not taken care of, we can only expect failure about Darfur.
