Thread Name: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Carol C. - If logical support is what they want, why refuse intelligence officers, strategic planners and transport?

Thats the "troops" that were being offered.

Why turn it down?

I think Sudan doesn't want too many eyes on the ground. I think the Sudanese govt. doesn't want Canada to know that they are in "cahoots" with the U.S. I also think that the Arab govt. of Sudan knows that the African Union doesn't stand a chance of defeating the Arabs.

By allowing Canada or any other country to contribute meaningful support to the African tribes, how will the Arabs be able to get that pipeline through so that they can sell oil to the U.S.???
