  10. 10. What do the experts think should be done? <ul><li>Citizens for Global Solutions recommends the following four steps for U.S. foreign policy in Darfur: The U.S. must secure increased funding for a stronger AMIS force to protect the people of Darfur until a U.N. force can deploy . The international community must act on its recognized r e sponsibility to protect the people of Darfur. The U.S. must engage Sudan closest allies -- especially China -- to end the violence in Darfur. With its economic relationship with the Sudan and its oil interests in the region, China is especially well-positioned to play a crucial role in ending genocide. The U.S. should support the International Criminal Court investigation in Darfur. In order to bring justice for the people of Darfur, the U.S. should support the ICC case and supply any relevant information on the Darfur case in order to hold accountable those responsible for genocide and crimes against humanity. The U.S. should take more forceful measures to stop genocide. Stronger measures could include planning for a no-fly zone, enforcing targeted individual sanctions, targeted divestment (specifically from the petroleum sector) and a freeze of off-shore accounts of Sudanese officials. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Solution #1 US Intervention <ul><li>Positives </li></ul><ul><li>US forces could help to fight against rebel armies and hold accountable those who are responsible for genocide and crimes against Humanity </li></ul><ul><li>Could provide food and shelter to help protect innocent civilians </li></ul><ul><li>Provide resources </li></ul><ul><li>Negatives </li></ul><ul><li>Risk of the lives of US soldiers </li></ul><ul><li>Costly to provide for and transport forces as well as to provide Sudanese people with resources they need </li></ul>
  12. 12. Solution #2 Donate to or join organizations such as Invisible Children <ul><li>Positives </li></ul><ul><li>Helping organizations like these will ultimately help provide needed resources for those in need in Sudan </li></ul><ul><li>Your donation can help raise awareness to the ongoing crisis </li></ul><ul><li>Negatives </li></ul><ul><li>It costs money to donate </li></ul><ul><li>It is time out of your lives dedicated to help solve the conflict </li></ul>
  13. 13. The Best Solution <ul><li>The best solution is to donate to or join organizations such as Invisible Children. Your money and time will be solely dedicated to help solve the crisis. You can help provide Sudanese people with much needed resources, and avoid the costs of sending US forces to Sudan. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Donation to Invisible Children </li></ul><ul><li>Since 2003, Invisible Children has worked to end Africa's longest running war and help rebuild what has been lost. Donations made will help the Invisible Children organization to build the region's first rehabilitation center, implement an early warning security network and support the international campaign to arrest Joseph Kony. Donations will ultimately help Invisible Children in their rescuing of Kony’s child soldiers and bring peace after 25 years of war. </li></ul>My Involvement
