The problem with this is that they're saying it's okay to invade this country and right whatever their wrongs are, but how many of them say it's wrong for us to invade Iraq/The Middle East and right their wrongs? Since the Sudanese government is being partially implicated in perpetuating the situation on the ground, we would be effectively bringing down another Fundamentalist Islamic regime and creating another puppet-government.
In other words, military intervention by the United States is so far from the answer that it's ridiculous.
