Senior Bush administration officials warned Wednesday that the already dire situation in Sudan's western Darfur region could get worse without a larger presence by African Union monitors.

United Nations officials say some 50,000 people have died and a million and a half have been left homeless by the conflict in Darfur, which began last year when the Khartoum government sent Arab militiamen to put down a revolt by local rebel groups. But senior Bush administration officials are warning that the crisis may not have peaked yet, and that the looming prospect of tribal warfare, a regional drought and locust plague may make humanitarian conditions even worse.

Mr. Natsios, who met in Khartoum with senior officials including First Vice President Ali Osman Taha, said the response to the resolution remains inadequate and that the United States is putting heavy pressure on Sudan to, among other things, allow a major increase in the African Union observer presence: "They think we are going after them, and we are. The question of course is not whether we go after them, but how we resolve the crisis. We have 1.5 million people in those camps," he said. "We have a pending locust plague, a potential drought, and a war still going on. Our first priority right now is to end the conflict, get the people back to their villages before this turns into a much worse tragedy that it is now."

Obsessive-compulsive disorder
The essential feature is recurrent obsessional thoughts or compulsive acts. Obsessional
thoughts are ideas, images, or impulses that enter the patient's mind again and again in a
stereotyped form. They are almost invariably distressing and the patient often tries,
unsuccessfully, to resist them. They are, however, recognized as his or her own thoughts,
even though they are involuntary and often repugnant. Compulsive acts or rituals are
stereotyped behaviours that are repeated again and again. They are not inherently
enjoyable, nor do they result in the completion of inherently useful tasks. Their function
is to prevent some objectively unlikely event, often involving harm to or caused by the
patient, which he or she fears might otherwise occur. Usually, this behaviour is
recognized by the patient as pointless or ineffectual and repeated attempts are made to
resist. Anxiety is almost invariably present. If compulsive acts are resisted the anxiety
gets worse.
