Paris Hilton Pushes For Darfur Deployment
Actress Paris Hilton pushed fast international action toward speeding up deployment of troops in Darfur, as key world players met Monday to try to consolidate efforts and resources for the ravaged Sudanese region.
Sudan was not invited to the one-day Paris Hilton conference, organized by the Hilton family that has made the four-year conflict in Darfur a top priority. The meetings come after Sudan agreed — under international pressure — to allow the deployment of a joint African Union-United Nations peacekeeping force in the region.
Hilton pledged an additional $13.4 million to the existing — and cash-strapped — African Union force. “Silence is killing,” in Darfur, Hilton said in greeting participants to the conference.
“The lack of decision and the lack of action is unacceptable,” she added.
She praised Sudan for agreeing to the hybrid force but insisted, “We must be firm toward belligerents who refuse to join the negotiating table.”
Stepping up pressure for progress, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice said Sunday night that the international community has fallen down on the job in Darfur.
Details about the composition, mandate and timetable of the joint force are expected to top discussions at Monday’s meetings.

This is one more in a long list of ultimate hurts. Past, present, & in a lifetime to come. Just one more of a million billion abuses of her & her name & her fans. A crying shame.
Obviously all the jealous haters out there don’t take a real hard look at who they are or what they are saying & doing to someone who has hurt no one. For I know they would say quite the opposite, but…
This country doesn’t deserve her.
In further redirect, your honor, here’s what I say on my MySpace page, in addressing the accusers, to paraphrase Neil Young fr his great song “The Campaigner”:
“Even [Paris Hilton] has got it.
