Darfur game plan

If we're serious about doing something about Darfur, then here is an assessment of what it will take. My thoughts run along the lines of, "Let's get started." I don't think a conflict can be avoided at this stage. Whatever the nature of Sudan's complicity with the savage Janjaweed militias, does anyone really expect Sudanese government to pick a fight with them? In terms of domestic politics, the Sudanese government is probably better off losing a fight with the West, which is contemplating a humanitarian mission, not regime change.
