Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ah, one other thing. R2P explicitly tries to do two things: avoid taking sides in a conflict, or aim at a regime change. The authors go on at some length about the necessity of "Right Intentions" in military interventions, including leaving the military option dead last on the list of measures to take. Very much in the spirit of Susan Powers' statement I quoted.

The intervention in Sudan is an attempt, I believe deiberate by some, to mitigate a conflict through purely diplomatic means. So, I hope the CPA succeeds in the end, though I think it's a hundred-year project. The CPA is a monster of an agreement.
