Dear Sen Obama: Craft the people of Dafur a belligerent foreign policy, or..

...craft them one that's tough and smart as you told Kos should be done here,
The bottom line is that our job is harder than the conservatives' job. After all, it's easy to articulate a belligerent foreign policy based solely on unilateral military action, a policy that sounds tough and acts dumb; it's harder to craft a foreign policy that's tough and smart.
But Hitchens's Realism in Darfur: Consider the horrors of peace leaves me with the sick feeling America will only find the toughness to bear our shame (again as we did in Rwanda, Bosnia, after the first Gulf war) and the strength to forgive ourselves.

This is why you hired Samantha Powers and we deserve something from you.
