We must mobilise pressure and fear to save Darfur (Tom Lantos)

Tom Lantos, author of an opinion piece published by the FT 26 Sep 2006 [hat tip POTP] is the senior Democrat on the House International Relations Committee and the founding co-chairman of the Congressional Human Rights Caucus. Excerpt from the piece:
"I will continue to push for the immediate deployment of Nato assets as part of a transitional operation to stop the atrocities while the UN forces are deployed. If Khartoum persists in pursuing genocide, I support military action to neutralise those military forces employed by Sudan to attack civilians or to inhibit peacekeepers from their deployment."
Yee Haw! You and whose army Mr Lantos?

Given he is a Holocaust survivor, I give Rep. Lantos his due and understand his viewpoint to use troops, jets and missiles to force a change on the ground after years of diplomacy have failed.

However, given that he is in the opposition and apparently is getting older in the bad sense (his disconnect over cutting all aid to Lebanon because of Hezbollah after Israel's collective punishment fiasco was astonishing), he is not in any position to influence events or spur developments.
