It is sad that the situation in Darfur is deteriorating very fast. Only God knows where all the wrangling and arm twisting will lead the people of Darfur.
The saddest thing is that the people of Darfur who are facing the daily killings, rapes and hunger have no voice in their own destiny. Althought the US pressure on Sudan to accept the UN force is not bearing any fruits so far, all eyes are focused on the visit of the US Special Envoy Jendayi Frazer.
Will her visit bear fruits? Bashir has already said no change of policy. It is unfortunate that she had a cold reception in Khartoum, an NCP organized or rather staged demonstration to her visit. Her car was also mobed by protestors!
There are lots of questions that come to mind about Darfur with regards to the government: why is the SPLM, which is part of the Government of National Unity, silent about Darfur? Why is the rebel faction of Minni Minawi silent about Darfur? The Islamists are being mobilized to opposed the UN forces in Darfur, but where are the moderates who want to see peace in Darfur?
Poor Jendayi, she had an impossible mission to convince Khartoum . . .
