Independent White House Candidates Daniel Imperato and Webster Brooks

Hartford, Connecticut -- May 24, 2006 - Today, Webster Brooks, Vice-Presidential candidate on the Imperato-Brooks 2008 Independent ticket, called on the U.S. government to use its full weight and influence to get U.N. forces and additional peacekeepers on the ground in Darfur to help enforce the new May 13, peace accord and stop the genocide.

Brooks said "It's critical that the U.S. lead an international effort to finally end the three-year offensive against the people of Darfur and rebel forces waged by the Sudanese government. Tens of thousands of people have been murdered, and the unintended consequence of many of the two million that fled their homes to take refuge in Chad, is the destabiliation of that country as well."

The peace agreement negotiated by the African Union and signed by Majzoub al-Khalifa, of Sudan's negotiating team, and rebel Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) leader Minni Arcua Minnawi in Lagos, addresses security, wealth and power-sharing arrangements. But Abdel Wahed Mohammed al-Nur, leader of a rival SLA faction, and the smaller Justice and Equality Movement (JEM).refused to sign the agreement. Brooks said "What is crucial now is putting sufficient forces on the ground to ensure a cease fire, and begining to disarm the Jungaweed militias and the SLA insurgent groups. This will be a most difficult issue, and it's equally important to continue talks to bring the other two groups into the process."

Brooks commented that "The 7,000 African Union forces should be supplemented by U.N. peacekeeping forces immediately. Kofi Annan needs to deliver the troops and humanitarian aid which has reached a low point, with dispatch, not only to preserve the U.N.'s flagging credibility, but also to forestall the widening of the conflict."

The Imperato-Brooks platform calls for the U.S. to play a much more aggressive role in bringing a peaceful settlement to the Darfur region. Looking toward the future, Brooks said conflicts like Darfur, point out why their campaign platform also calls for the U.S. to accelerate the transformation of U.S. armed forces from purely combat units into a split force, inclusive of a professionalized military -civilian peace keeping force, with administrative functions to help re-constitute regions and nations in transition. Brooks observed that "The Iraq experience demonstrates that the U.S. military is proficient in making war, but not keeping the peace. Darfur is the test, to show we have learned something from Iraq. If we don't take advantage of this critical moment to consolidate the peace in Darfur, we will confront a much wider conflict in the region with Chad and other players becoming embroiled in the conflict."
