A very somber op-ed piece today shows visual evidence of the horrific and barbarous acts occuring in Darfur. Something needs to be done on an international level, my question is: why isn't the United Nations doing something right now? Isn't that the whole point of the U.N.?

Nichlos Kristof seems to blame Americans for not doing something. And frankly I agree that America should do something if no one else will. But this really should be the function of the U.N. Of course the U.N. failed miserably in Iraq as well and America gets blamed for stepping up to the plate to do the U.N.'s job for it.

I wonder if the same thing would happen in Darfur if America intervened?
