Thread Name: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Something is very, very wrong with U.S. foreign policy. I have just learned that the reason Bush doesn't do more to stop the Sudanese govt. from arming the Janjaweed, is that Sudan is an ally in the War Against Terror. Thats right, folks, the CIA get alot of information and co-operation from the Sudanese govt. In fact, the U.S. is dependent on Sudanese Intelligence.

Now combine the fact that the Bush administration is oil hungry and dependent on Sudanese intelligence for their war, it isn't very likely that the U.S. will do much about the killing and rape in Darfur is there?

So while the U.N. tries to drum up some cash, and the AU (with limited troops) continues to try to stop the mass killings, Canada plans to send personnel but the government of Sudan says no to the peacekeepers. Meanwhile, the Sudanese govt. and the U.S. govt. are sharing intelligence and strengthening their alliance.

Whats with this Arab/U.S. touchy-feely partnership?
