Some Good News

Maybe.

Nice to see that the suggestion of Nicholas Kristoff and others – that the least we can do is provide a protection force for the refugees in Chad, hopefully creating some kind of safe haven – is being taken somewhat seriously in policy circles. Chadian President Idriss Deby is a corrupt autocratic disaster, but that is one of the factors that make him highly amenable to international troops being stationed on Chad’s border with Sudan. Given the horrors unfolding in Darfur, propping up his sorry regime would be the lesser of evils by far.
