At stake in Sudan

Though there are increasingly welcome signs visible, the ground reality is still miserable for countless many being caught in brutal political struggles between the government of Sudan and Darfur oppositions. Vaclav Havel, the first president of the Czech Republic implores deep in this gruesome conflict, his eyes are set in the wider implications and root causes of this conflict that has been burning for quiet some time.
because Darfur is emblematic of wider difficulties, the international community must look beyond the immediate circumstances and increase efforts to deal with the threats that have played a role in the disaster, such as climate change and environmental degradation. Indeed, the accelerating expansion of deserts will likely lead to a decrease of agricultural yields, less water, and possibly further conflicts.

Similar conditions exist in several locations worldwide. So the global nature of this problem must be addressed in places where environmental degradation is already bringing about a dangerous deterioration in peoples' lives. Early prevention is required.

Would our global trotting "leaders" pay sensible attentions to this urgent need while abandoning the mythical ones?
