    And how do we accomplish that without pissing off the majority of the U.S. citizens?

    More often than not people are getting on board with the whole "sweep your porch before you sweep your neighbors' " philosophy.

    I mean, without totally taking over the entire area and maintaining our presence for generations.

    Sucks, but what can we do?
    Back up the existing operation thats defending aid workers and refugee camps [or attempting to]

    You could see by the guess that Iraq war would be over in weeks was ridiculous. If they even picked up a book on Iraq's history, they would have realised the quagmire they'd be dragged down into.
    Thats my point though. To a certain extent the recent history of western intervention has been characterized more by forceing dictatorship on muslim democracys [as in Iran and Pakistan] then visa vera.

    Foreign aid and aid from other countries. If that was really the philosophy we wouldn't be sending the aid that we already do.

    Wouldnt aiding the Sudanese government be somewhat counter productive? Especially considering that by all accounts the U.S is training the SPLM.

    You think it would have that much say in this? Also, if we do the minimum of what we could like Dave suggested it wouldn't be particularily taxing on our military. It wouldn't take many US soldiers to guard a refugee camp.

    Ideally it should be the UN working together with the AU, but the AU is about one of the least useful international organizations in the world.

    You sure about that? Last time our boys went over that way we ended up comin back pretty quick.

    I'm not saying don't help them, I hate to see troubles like this in the world. I just don't know if I can believe in anything changing over there without us heavily investing resources.
