It was a nice effort, but such an irrelevant organisation only capable of contracting on behalf of the UN and major powers is not worthy of such attention.

The AU is the only org which does not solve its own problems until an outside force intervenes to give them orders such as what is now happening in Darfur and Zoomalia.

Until these Africans learn to respect each others efforts and recognise the wrongs from rights. The AU will continue to watch awful events in its environments.

I am sad to note Murad that you are so mis-informed. Sadly, you have taken-on entirely Western propaganda, which aims to dislodge the efforts of the African Union.

I am sure you are aware of what is called 'interests'. Its, in the interest of those who dont want the African Union there, to villify them, and then make the absurd claim that they are useless. Brother, its the 2nd scramble for resources in Africa. Come on the ground and see for yourself.

I say the African Union needs our support. Its a young organisation with a new ethos established in 2002. Its done well to look into the case of Somaliland.
