Another World Leader Steps Up to the Plate

Finally, a world leader of whom everyone can be proud. The new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Gordon Brown, made ending the genocide in Darfur a foreign policy priority. He made it happen.

Prime Minister Gordon, with the support of French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, and US President, George Bush, ended the ennui over Darfur that has gripped the UN Security Council of late. Since 2003, over 200 thousand people have died and over two million have lost everything inDarfur.

The UN Security Council voted unanimously on July 31 to deploy a 26,000-strong international force to Darfur. This is not the end of the genocide, but at least meaningful action is in sight.

I really like Gordon Brown Cybercelt. I personally think he'll do a much better job of running the country than Tony Blair. Everyone here is hoping Gordon will put the Great back into Britain.
