It's about time!

Months after Colin Powell called it "genocide" the US is circulating a draft of a UNSC resolution about Darfur. Again, is there anything Condi can't conquer? (aaah, alliteration)
Draft UN Resolution Calls For Peacekeeping Force In Sudan.
The Washington Post/Reuters (2/15, A11) reports, “The United States circulated a draft UN resolution Monday calling for a large peacekeeping force in southern Sudan but dodged the question of what kind of court should try accused war criminals in Darfur.” The US-drafted Security Council resolution “would impose a travel ban and freeze assets on those who violated a cease-fire in Darfur, in western Sudan, where at least 70,000 people have been killed and 2 million made homeless.” The text “would create a Security Council committee to identify which individuals should be subject to the sanctions.” The New York Times (2/15, Hoge) also reports on the story.
