Deploying all 26,000 members of a peacekeeping force in Sudan's conflict-wracked Darfur will take many more months because of growing insecurity and logistical difficulties, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a report circulated Friday. Even when the joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force is fully deployed, he said, the only way to end the fighting, which has killed more than 200,000 by most estimates and displaced more than 2 million, will be through political talks and a peace agreement.

Americans are frequently told that the Iraq war has "inflamed the Muslim world." Just a few months after the conflict began, Andrew Kohut, president of the Pew Research Center, used this exact phrase to describe the war's effect on global Muslim opinion. Former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said the continued occupation of Iraq has led to "an increase in anti-Americanism in the Muslim world."
