If you are focusing on the story's irony, you might want to focus on how the initial irony changes form throughout the story. In the beginning, we find irony in the fact that Daru has assimilated and is welcome in the desert, but is reminded by Balducci that if there's any problems he will be seen as a foreigner. Balducci urges Daru to be completely complicit, but Daru refuses to make a choice, any choice that will commit him in anyway. What Daru doesn't understand is that in remaining neutral and determining to keep himself from being involved, he has made a choice.
