DLC on Sudan

Shortly after I wrote the Sudan post below, the Democratic Leadership Council's "New Dem Dispatch" on Darfur showed up in my inbox, hitting many of the exact same notes and calling for robust intervention. Kudos to them. The DLC also writes: "But if the United Nations cannot act, NATO should." Indeed, I've heard rumors that NATO headquarters are a lot more gung-ho about getting involved in the Sudan than they were during, say, Bosnia, so that's certainly a good sign, but absent the necessary political will on the part of the U.S. and Europe, these initiatives aren't going to get very far.
