Possible Peace in Darfur?

Darfur Peace NegotiationsThe Associated Press has an anonymous source from a Darfur rebel group that says the rebel groups may be ready to accept a U.S. backed peace agreement with the Sudanese government.

A proposal drafted by the United States and Britain to help end the war in Sudan’s Darfur region meets key rebel demands and could set the stage for a peace accord, a rebel negotiator said Thursday.

A rebel negotiator, speaking on condition of anonymity because the parties involved had been asked not to reveal details of the proposal, said it called for thousands of rebels to be integrated into Sudanese security forces.

Sudanese government officials were not immediately available for comment but have indicated they were ready to make concessions (source).

As best I can tell, this a welcome development. I hope something does come of it. Heaven knows, the suffering non-Arab blacks need a respite.
