I didn’t watch the debate, but apparently the Big O said this about Darfur when asked about humanitarian military missions:
We could be providing logistical support, setting up a no-fly zone at relatively little cost to us, but we can only do it if we can help mobilize the international community and lead. And that’s what I intend to do when I’m president.
What good would a no-fly zone do in Darfur? Are the genociders using aircraft?
It’s really tough to take Obama seriously when he talks about foreign policy.
No-fly zones in Iraq in the early 1990s made sense because the Iraqi government was using aircraft to attack the Kurds in the north and the Shiites in the south.
Jay Tea suggests also banning spaceships, mining vehicles, and death rays for all the good it will do.
FWIW, I still say send in Blackwater.
