Question: Do you have a strategy for Darfur?

Armitage:    Yeah.  I’m afraid nothing very meaningful will happen in Darfur unless the United States has a small presence.  And I’m not talking about necessarily carrying rifles and separating the combatants; but sort of a headquarters outfit.  The United States has a way of coalescing efforts, and people take it seriously when the United States gets involved.  And I’m one of those who thinks we should be involved.  But there are plenty of others with rifles who could separate the combatants; but I think without our sort of action forcing an event, nothing meaningful will happen
