Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What is the Darfur conflict about?

If wikipedia is right:

The combination of decades of drought, desertification, and overpopulation are among the causes of the Darfur conflict. The Baggara nomads searching for water have to take their livestock farther south, to land mainly occupied by Black African farming communities. [10]

So, a conflict of land. And what are the solutions? Support one side and watch it do unto the other what was done to it? Send out summons for the leaders to appear in court?

Or lessen the local population pressure by allowing migration. Few million green-cards should be enough, I bet the locals are even resouceful enough that they will get transportation set up themselves once it becomes clear that they will be legally allowed into the EU and USA.

Of course, this would threathen the economic division of the world and actually affect white people, not just the locals. So courts or bombs it is, that will solve the desertification just nicely.
