US urges UN force in Darfur 'without delay'

Aug 21 2006 Voice of America:
The United States Monday called on the government of Sudan to allow deployment of a U.N. peacekeeping force in Darfur "without delay."

In a statement, Acting State Department Spokesman Gonzalo Gallegos condemned the attack by unknown assailants in northern Darfur that killed two Rwandan members of the African Union Mission in Sudan, AMIS, and wounded several others.

Gallegos called on the Sudanese government to cooperate fully with AMIS to arrest and prosecute those behind the attack.

"The United Nations force must deploy without delay," said Gonzalo Gallegos.
Yee Haw! It's difficult to imagine thrusting Americans as peacekeepers. Good they're not planning on sending any of their troops to 'save' Darfur.
