Can the United Nations Bring Peace to Darfur? After the genocide in Rwanda, the United Nations General Assembly accepted responsibility to intervene when governments are not protecting their own people from mass atrocities. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has reportedly said that is fundamental to the future of the UN itself. In Darfur, the western province of Sudan, the commitment called "the responsibility to protect" is facing its first test, as Sudan's President hired the man human rights leaders call " the poster child for atrocities ." Is there hope for international intervention? Will it be like Rwanda all over again?
