Thread Name: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Carol C. - From your post above: "The Sudanese ambassador to Canada has said her country would not allow Canadian troops into Darfur despite an assistance package from the minority Liberal government, announced last Thursday, that included up to 100 military advisers to help the African Union maintain peace in the war-ravaged region."

BTW - When I say Arabs, I mean the present Sudanese government.

NATO is considering a request to help - That doesn't mean they are helping. Please provide a link that tells me that anyone else is even trying to help.

Not that it matters because, according to your quote, "In a statement issued at the end of the two-day meeting Tuesday, leaders of Egypt, Libya, Chad, Nigeria, Sudan, Gabon and Eritrea decided to "reject any foreign intervention in the Darfur problem, and dealing with it should be through its African framework."

I think that the intention is to avoid 'foreign' involvement but I still wonder why Canada was stone-walled when they are already helping the African Union in a very limited capacity. Its not as if they were sending in the armed forces. The troops that were being offerred were logistical support, strategists, intelligence and transportation.
