"The janjaweed are back."

That's the opening line to the NYT article this morning on Darfur.

Scorched-Earth Strategy Returns to Darfur

Richard S. Williamson, visited Darfur and the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, meeting with President Omar al-Bashir. Any improvement in relations, he said, would be contingent on tangible improvements in the humanitarian situation.

“Since the first of the year another 75,000 people in Darfur have been displaced,” Mr. Williamson said in a telephone interview. “That is more than a thousand a day. There are not going to be any changes until that reverses.”

How much longer are we going to wait?
