The UN "acts" on Darfur

Breaking news out of NY: U.N. Approves Darfur Peacekeeping Force

“The U.N. Security Council on Thursday voted to create a United Nations peacekeeping force in Sudan's Darfur region, despite the Khartoum government's strong opposition.”

…which may lead the unsuspecting to believe that something is finally going to get done there. Alas, that news is tempered by this little factoid:

“But the troops will not be deployed until Sudan consents.”

Somewhere in America today there will be a Homeowners Association meeting that will end up approving resolutions with more teeth and lasting impact than anything coming out of the UN nowadays.
