The Role of China in the Darfur Situation

In a new column on China (h/t Roger Simon), Mark Steyn makes a point I hadn't realized previously about Darfur:
China is the Security Council member most actively promoting inaction on Darfur, where (in the most significant long-range military deployment in five centuries), it has 4,000 troops protecting its oil interests.
I didn't know that and find it fascinating. For more on the horrors in Darfur, see here, here, here, here, here, and here. Just for starters. (hat tip to Instapundit, of course, for most of those.)
