Well, well. Look who's now advocating military action in Darfur:

''I would use American force now,'' Biden said at a hearing before his committee. ''I think it's not only time not to take force off the table. I think it's time to put force on the table and use it.''

In advocating use of military force, Biden said senior U.S. military officials in Europe told him that 2,500 U.S. troops could ''radically change the situation on the ground now.''

''Let's stop the bleeding,'' Biden said. ''I think it's a moral imperative.''

Yeah, so when that gets tough are you planning to blame Bush and whine for withdrawal too?

Kid Various should note for the record, however, that Senator Biden is completely correct. It is incumbent upon us to end the continuing genocide in Darfur and establish a free society there. It would also go far to demonstrate that our committment to freedom does not only apply to areas in which we have security interests (for in Sudan we have none.)

We should send one BCT and Special Forces from Djibouti as well as air assets and establish a wide "safe zone" in southern Sudan.

It would just be nice if Senator Biden recognized our "moral imperative" in Iraq as well, instead of doing all he can to ensure defeat there
