The US may find itself involved on a new battlefront in the coming months as Britian's PM, Tony Blair, is drawing up plans on how to act.
"The Prime Minister has asked to look at all the options that will save lives and not to rule out the military services," a British government
official was quoted as saying in The Guardian newspaper.
According to the report, Mr Blair is considering three options: sending British servicemen only to help with the aid effort; sending logistical
support for an African Union force; deploying British troops to protect refugee camps. The final and most risky option would require the agreement of
the Khartoum Government, which would be reluctant to give it, the newspaper said.
Mr Blair yesterday promised to keep in close touch with Washington and the United Nations over events in Darfur, where at least 10,000 people are
estimated to have died since conflict erupted in February 2003 "

There is no doubt that if the British invade, the US won't be far behind.
With Iraq becoming less and less, America's problem, and more and more the rest of the world's problem, many troops will soon be free to participate
in such a conflict.
