Can I reframe one of your questions above? Try:

How many innocent civilians would be killed both directly and indirectly because of proposed American military action in Darfur?

Before military intervention starts, it is hard to know if this number is in the scores or hundreds or thousands. But it is without doubt greater than zero. Given this reality, would you oppose military intervention in Dafur (by the US or anyone else)?

The pacifist position is, of course, a reasonable one. If that is your take, then we can agree to disagree. But, if your take is that we should send the Marines into Dafur, but not in to Kurdistan, then it would be helpful to spell out your big picture view on how many innocent lives are worth the benefits of regime change, in Sudan or in Iraq.
