I like Condi Rice.
I like her a lot, but her plan to combat rapes in Darfur is simply crap.
After talks earlier Thursday in Khartoum, Sudan's capital, Rice said she had obtained a commitment from senior Sudanese officials, including the president, Lt. Gen. Omar Hassan Bashir, to implement a plan to halt sexual attacks against women. The plan, which calls for a public campaign against violence and the prosecution of rapists, was conceived by Rice's deputy, Robert B. Zoellick, who presented it to the Khartoum government during a visit two weeks ago.
Notwithstanding the failure of the Sudanese to ever meet their commitments, even if they did, this does nothing to stop rapes. Its simply worthless (or worse) window dressing. Want a real solution??? How bout some shipments of surplus handguns???
