While we're all talking about the next overflow and think that they have significance in the wider scheme of things, I'll climb on the soapbox for 5 minutes:

We should send peacekeeping troops to Darfour/Sudan. I was strongly opposed to the Iraq war (on the ground that invasion would bring civil war), but I plead my government: Take my taxes and send peacekeeping forces to Sudan. _If_ we have decided that the 'europeans-are-from-venus'-stance is obsolete, we have here a primary example of a conflict where external invasion appears necessary according to almost everybody (except the government in Kartoum).
