ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the case against the United States intervening with military force in the Darfur region of the Sudan. According to the author, in light of the war in Iraq, the U.S. no longer has the moral credibility for such an action and that it would only add to the already high level of world-wide anti-Americanism.
