The U.S Secretary of State Colin Powell has given Sudan an ultimatum that they have 30 days to end the violence or face possible sanctions.
Sudan has responded by warning the U.S. not to get too involved in the Darfur conflict. More than 10,000 people have been killed and one million have fled their homes after two rebel groups retaliated against the Arab Militia last year.
 




Janjaweed militiamen are accused of ethnic cleansing
Sudan warns US against 'new Iraq'
Human rights activists say the Janjaweed are conducting a genocide against Darfur's black African population - although the UN and member states have refrained from using the word.

A rebellion broke out in Darfur early last year, when two groups took up arms, accusing the government of ignoring the region.

Those who have fled their homes say the Janjaweed ride on horses and camels into villages which have just been bombed by government aircraft, killing the men and raping the women.

France, once more, is opposing sanctions to the Khartoum government, while the UN Security Council is still debating the US draft resolution to impose sanctions on the Arab Militia. Just like in Iraq France has many oil interests in Sudan, and has been directly involved in Sudan's genocide.

It's inacceptable that such a propaganda is allowed to be posted as news!
Ever dared to look into the list of import/export partners of Sudan?

Doesn't look that french. Looks more British. Do I see anythign British in your article? Oh no, just the usual Iam-stupid-as-hell-and-need-to-bash-france.

frontpagemag.com...
...ahahahahahahahahahaha....what a nice propaganda.



What did the Franco-German duo do? It led the EU in the opposite direction. France provided Khartoum with military intelligence for the prosecution of the jihad, while French and German helicopters have been used for ethnic cleansing in southern Sudan's oil fields. Driving black, non-Muslims out of their homes creates greater security for the investments of oil firms like Total Fina (France/Belgium) and the German engineering giant Mannesmann.


Yea, sure. The french actively support the Jihad...yea...who beliefs that? Please stand up so we can laugh about you.
German engineering giant Mannesmann? Well, it's a telco...first of all and secondly it's owned by Vodafone....a british company that pushed agressivly into world-wide market...but that's something blind people can't really see, isn't it?

Anyway, that everything you wrote and linked to is absolutly stupid isn't hard to tell.
I will quote my favourite now:




But there is another ray of hope. It comes from Central and Eastern Europe, whose populations recall the reality of tyranny. At the end of January, Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic -- no longer fearful candidates in danger of having the Old Europe veto their entry into the EU -- threatened an end to Franco-German hegemony by siding with the United States and five other European countries to apply maximum pressure on Saddam Hussein's dangerous dictatorship and his arsenal of weapons of mass destruction.

This expression of independence in the east of Europe raises the specter of isolation for the dangerously illusionary policies of France and Germany. A strong human rights alliance between the United States and the freedom-loving countries of Europe will improve the chances of liberty for Sudan's slaves, for the Kurds and Shiites of Iraq, and for other victims of crimes against humanity, whatever their race, creed, or gender.



..his arsenal of weapons of mass destruction.
Muah! Do you actually read what you quote and link to?

Would you actually care to back up every one of your claims, or would you just continue resorting to name calling as if that proves anything?

Let me help you a bit.

First, the takeover bid from the British Vodafone of Mannesman was in november of 1999.... much later after the help that the Arab militia got from the Germans and the French....

I also do want to read your explanation of the similarity between a mobile phone company and military helicopters which were involved in the displacement of non-Muslim blacks...among other things...

Second, while in the U.S there are still people who think that Saddam did not have wmd, was not actively seeking to get more, or that there was no connection between Saddam and terrorism or a threat to the US, lets see what some countries have said.

" MOSCOW, Russia (CNN) -- Russian intelligence services warned Washington several times that Saddam Hussein's regime planned terrorist attacks against the United States, President Vladimir Putin has said.

"I can confirm that after the events of September 11, 2001, and up to the military operation in Iraq, Russian special services and Russian intelligence several times received ... information that official organs of Saddam's regime were preparing terrorist acts on the territory of the United States and beyond its borders, at U.S. military and civilian locations," Putin said."


Excerpted from.
www.cnn.com...


Even with the above information Putin has been against the war in Iraq, but perhaps the following will throw in some light as to one of the reasons why Putin didn't want a war in Iraq. Saddam's Global Payroll

Now, the following is an excerpt from the latest UNMOVIC report.

" The Commission’s experts are conducting an investigation in parallel with the IAEA Iraq Nuclear Verification Office regarding the discovery of items from Iraq that are relevant to the mandates of UNMOVIC and IAEA at a scrapyard in the Netherlands. In particular, following a visit of IAEA to a scrapyard in Rotterdam to investigate increased radiation readings, it was discovered, through photographs taken at the time, that engines of SA-2 surface-to-air missiles were among the scrap (see figure below). They are the type of engines used in the Al Samoud 2 proscribed missile programme. In addition, a number of items and equipment that may also be relevant to the UNMOVIC mandate were seen among the scrap. The existence of missile engines originating in Iraq among scrap in Europe may affect the accounting
of proscribed engines known to have been in Iraq’s possession in March 2003.

A team of Commission experts visited the site concerned in the Netherlands
and examined one missile engine that had been salvaged from the scrap metal process. By comparing the serial production number on the engine with information in the UNMOVIC database, the experts were able to confirm that the engine was one from an SA-2 missile that had been tagged by United Nations inspectors in the past and had not been declared as having been fired. Representatives of the scrapyard company indicated that a number of similar engines (5 to 12) had been seen in the scrapyard in January and February of this year. More engines could have been processed and passed through the yard unnoticed. Company staff confirmed that other items made of stainless steel and other corrosion-resistant metal alloys bearing the inscription “Iraq” or “Baghdad” had been observed in shipments delivered from the Middle East since November 2003.
"

Excerpted from.
www.globalsecurity.org...

The report also states that factories which had been under satellite monitoring, by UNMOVIC had been cleaned up of material, equipment and in some cases dismantled completly between late 2003 and early 2004.

Lets also take a look at what happened before the war.

" A new and dangerous flashpoint with Iraq emerged last night when weapons specialists called in by the UN arms inspectors judged Iraq's main missile system to be illegal and said they should probably be destroyed.

The setback to the anti-war camp came just hours after France and Germany secured a breathing space by forcing the US and Britain to delay tabling a UN resolution - that would authorise war - from tomorrow until at least early next week.

" FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


BANNED MISSILES FOUND IN IRAQ

OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM – Elements of the I Marine Expeditionary Force located two Al Samoud II missiles during ground operations Monday on a farm near Al Hillah in central Iraq.

The Al Samoud II missile violates U.N. resolution 687 with a flight range exceeding 150 km.

Regime forces have launched at least one Al Samoud II missile at Kuwait since the beginning of the war.


Excerpted from.
www.centcom.mil...

" UNITED NATIONS (CNN) -- Iraq is willing to cooperate with U.N. inspectors on the possible destruction of missiles that the United Nations says are in violation of its resolutions, Iraq's U.N. ambassador said Tuesday.

"Iraq did declare already that [it] is willing to cooperate with UNMOVIC [the U.N. Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission] on that question," Ambassador Mohammed Aldouri said.

Pressed on whether Iraq will destroy the Al Samoud 2 missiles, he said, "It depends on the concrete results [that] might occur between Iraq and UNMOVIC." "

Excerpted from.
www.cnn.com...

Appart from those mentioned in the above article there were some other missiles and at least one scud which Saddam launched at the coalition in Kuwait at the beginning of the war.

There is also the following information.

" 13.Based on the UNSCOM report to the UN Security Council in January 1999 and
earlier UNSCOM reports,we assess that when the UN inspectors left Iraq they
were unable to account for:
●up to 360 tonnes of bulk chemical warfare agent,including 1.5 tonnes of VX
nerve agent;
●up to 3,000 tonnes of precursor chemicals,including approximately 300
tonnes which,in the Iraqi chemical warfare programme,were unique to the
production of VX;
●growth media procured for biological agent production (enough to produce
over three times the 8,500 litres of anthrax spores Iraq admits to having
manufactured);
●over 30,000 special munitions for delivery of chemical and biological agents."

So...Saddam did not pose an immediate threat to the US?..... or there were no wmd, missiles and other equipment that Saddam was not supposed to have?

Let me actually give you some more information to digest.

" "This is not just trace elements - this is actual sarin and mustard gas in the projectiles, full, ready to fire," said NPR reporter John Burnett, citing an official with the 1st Marine Division.

The 20 or so missiles were captured by the 101st Airborne Division in a warehouse near the Baghdad airport.

NPR identified the truck-mounted rocket launcher as a BM-21 - the same Soviet-made system Saddam used in the 1980s to deliver deadly nerve agents during the Iran-Iraq war. Each 9-foot missile has a range of about 15 miles.

In a separate discovery, the Pentagon was bringing samples of chemicals found Sunday in two warehouses in Abul Muhawish - south of Baghdad - back to the U.S. for further testing.
"

Excerpted from.
www.nydailynews.com...

" WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. forces near Baghdad found a weapons cache of around 20 medium-range missiles equipped with potent chemical weapons, the U.S. news station National Public Radio reported on Monday.

NPR, which attributed the report to a top official with the 1st Marine Division, said the rockets, BM-21 missiles, were equipped with sarin and mustard gas and were "ready to fire." It quoted the source as saying new U.S. intelligence data showed the chemicals were "not just trace elements."
"

Excerpted from.
www.command-post.org...

" U.N. weapons experts have found 20 engines used in banned Iraqi missiles in a Jordan scrapyard along with other equipment which could be used to make weapons of mass destruction, an official said Wednesday.

The discoveries were revealed to the U.N. Security Council by acting chief U.N. inspector Demetrius Perricos during in a closed-door briefing. The text was obtained by The Associated Press.

The U.N. team was following up on an earlier discovery of a similar Al Samoud 2 engine in a scrapyard in the Dutch port of Rotterdam. Perricos said inspectors also want to check in Turkey, which has also received scrap metal from Iraq.

Whoever imports or exports doesn't really matter in this case.

What does matter is that the only country to publicly oppose sanctions to stop the genocide taking place in Sudan, is France.

The French don't actively support a Jihad. What they dosupport though, is the furtherance of their own cause - whatever the moral implications may be. So whilst they are not actively supporting anything, they are inactively giving free reign to terrorism, torture and genocide.

It would have been preferable if the French had restrained from making any statement. By making the noises that they have, they are indirectly encouraging the situation in Sudan to worsen.

Muaddib. Is there any reason you need to put everything in bold?
Secondly, is there any reason you ignore all reports and summaries that proof most of last year and beginning 2004 intelligence information to be false? Why back yourself up with material from 2003 which has been proofed inaccurate or even wrong since a few weeks?
That's not the first time I read post of yours which sound like you love to ignore news that aren't at least one year old.

The text claims Mannesman invested in Sudan. That's wrong. The investments were done by a group of companies from Canada, Sudan, Malaysia and China. But I guess that doesn't fit your thoughts, eh?
Furthermore Mannesmann only equipped this group with tubes, today there is no business that I know of, done by a german company with sudan.

But, interesting enough. Mannesmann really was a "german company" at that time. But propaganda like your says "Germany supported the genocide" instead of correctly saying that one german company supported a group of companies from Candada, Sudan, Malaysia and China that were after the oil.

As long as you stay inaccurate when it fits your needs, you are out of discussion




I also do want to read your explanation of the similarity between a mobile phone company and military helicopters which were involved in the displacement of non-Muslim blacks...among other things...


Can you give me further information on the helicopters? Were they sold by german companies or by the german government. The text seems to claim the german government sold those helicopters or at least, knew about it. Detailed information please.

What's been going on in the Sudan is wrong,apparently they are not as strategically necessary as Iraq. We may not be able to make any of the european countries do our will, but at least we should. A big part of France's indecision in these matters is they have a very large muslim population, so large that eventually we may see a France that is run by musilims, through the legal means of being elected to office. Imagine that a muslim run country with a nuclear arsenal as big as Frances

Shoo, first, who should be out of discussion is whoever starts insulting and trying to demean any posters, and more so without backup information. Not that backup information gives you or anyone else the right to insult and demean anyone.

You asked me why do I put certain excerpts in bold? because that's why we have the "bold" feature, to make in bold any important information.


Again, you are not posting any of the links you are claiming are up to date. Are you saying the latest report from UNMOVIC is too old? and the Russian acknowledgement to the press of Saddams threats to the US is also too old? Those are from this year, 2004, not last year or two years ago.


Also those reports were not proved wrong. What about the 20 engines of banned Iraqi missiles found and released in June 9th 2004? Is that two to three years old? You obviously did not even look at the links.

Oh btw, yes it is true that there are people and companies from all over the world that would make business with anyone, even dictators. Countries should not be blamed because of what these companies and people do, but when their governments are involved in genocide, it is another story.

Here is a link that Seekerof provided some months back from France.




An Active French Role in the 1994 Genocide in Rwanda
PARIS - The rumors were right. A devastating series of articles just published in the Paris newspaper Le Figaro by its Africa specialist, Patrick de Saint-Exupéry, documents French official implication in the genocide committed in Rwanda in 1994.
.......................
The newspaper says French forces took an active but secret part in fighting rebel Tutsi infiltration of Rwanda from 1992 forward, operating at front-line level. They were present during the 1994 genocide, and did not intervene. They helped the authors of genocide to escape.

In February 1993, an international commission denounced ''acts of genocide'' in Rwanda. President Mitterrand reportedly remarked to an associate the following summer: ''In countries like that, a genocide is not very important.''

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


Now, let me see what else I can dig about the German government involvement.

Let me ask you, how would you feel to know if the US, instead of Germany, would have sold military equipment, including helicopters, for the genocide against people that do not have helicopters, or tanks or a lot of weapons to defend themselves with?

Sorry for insulting you, I was quite angry because of the propaganda texts you linked to.



You asked me why do I put certain excerpts in bold? because that's why we have the "bold" feature, to make in bold any important information.


It just renders the text unreadable or let's say uncomfortable to read. Using the "quote" feature is the better option imho.

That CNN article is from 2004 but the Russian secret service information they talk about, are from 2001 and meanwhile, proofed inaccurate.
The UNMOVIC reports says something about illegal weapons but I didn't read anything about the WMD that were supposed to be there, so?
Or shall I quote the "arsenal of weapons of mass destruction"?



Also those reports were not proved wrong. What about the 20 engines of banned Iraqi missiles found and released in June 9th 2004? Is that two to three years old? You obviously did not even look at the links.


Sure I did but what has this to do with WMDs? Okay, sure, now I will read the usual "but but but but you can, maybe, use it, well, probably, but, hm, for, hm, WMDs?"-crap but the US still lacks evidence that Saddam had a WMD program.
Remembering President Bushs speeches they should have discovered thousands of rockets and bombs with B & C threats.



Oh btw, yes it is true that there are people and companies from all over the world that would make business with anyone, even dictators. Countries should not be blamed because of what these companies and people do, but when their governments are involved in genocide, it is another story.


Good to see you have the same opinion on this one


Now, let me see what else I can dig about the German government involvement.

As we know about the French and US involvement in the Genocide I am eager to hear about my countries foul play.

Shoo, you are still not posting any updated information/links that you were talking about. The lastest report from UNMOVIC is the one i posted above, and Russia came forward this year telling the press of what they have said after 2001 to the US.

There were/are missiles and wmd found in Iraq that they were not supposed to have, so no if, or but, but, but... Saddam was an immediate threat to the US even the Russian president told us so, probably to try to wash himself/themselves clean from any links to terrorism. The 9/11 commission reported that there were no links between Iraq and 9/11, but there are links between Iraq and Al Qaeda and Iraq-terrorism in general against Americans and Jewish people.

Sudan once more warns both the US and UK not to interfere with Dafur after Prime Minister Tony Blair said they did not rule out military help to the region. The Sudanese government is denying that they are helping the Arab militia against black Africans, and has pledged "to protect displaced civilians, disarm militias, lift travel restrictions on aid workers and punish those responsible for atrocities" the article states.


Sudan Warns Britain, U.S. Not to Interfere in Darfur
In agreement with Annan, Sudan has pledged to protect displaced civilians, disarm militias, lift travel restrictions on aid workers and punish those responsible for atrocities.

Seven men convicted of belonging to the Janjaweed were sentenced in a Darfur court to punishments ranging from execution and crucifixion to amputation and imprisonment, a statement from the presiding judge said Thursday.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Blair is considering sending troops to help distribute aid, lend logistical support to an African Union protection force, and protect refugee camps from Arab militias.

The disaster in Sudan did not begin this year, and is not confined to the Darfur region which is now in the headlines. The recent deaths of 30,000 Sudanese are but a subchapter in a conflict that has been raging for more than two decades, and which according to modest estimates has taken the lives of more than 1.2 million people.


With two of its 15 members abstaining, the Security Council voted today to take action against Sudan if it does not disarm the Arab militias accused of indiscriminate murders, rapes and other attacks against civilians in the troubled Darfur region and bring the leaders to justice



UN Council adopts text threatening measures against Sudan over Darfur crisis

With China and Pakistan abstaining, and the other 13 members approving the text, the Council agreed to impose an arms embargo against the Janjaweed militias and all other non-governmental forces in Darfur, which has been described as the site of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

The resolution says the Council might take measures against Sudan if it does not show progress on achieving the commitments – most notably the pledges to disarm the Janjaweed and restore security to Darfur – it outlined in a joint communiqué with the UN on 3 July.

Those measures include steps allowed under the UN Charter, such as issuing economic penalties, restricting transport and communications, and severing diplomatic relations.

The resolution also calls for the resumption of political dialogue between Sudan and Darfur’s two rebel groups, the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army (SLM/A) and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM).

"Sudan expresses its deep sorrow that the issue of Darfur has quickly entered the Security Council and has been hijacked from its regional arena," Information Minister El-Zahawi Ibrahim Malik said in a statement issued in Arabic.

He called the resolution "misguided" and said the Security Council had intentionally ignored efforts by Khartoum, the African Union and the Arab League to resolve the crisis.



Sudan rejects threat of sanctions

The world's worst humanitarian crisis - includes aspects of ethnic cleansing and perhaps even genocide - is unfolding in the Darfur region of western Sudan, where rebels took up arms against Khartoum in early 2003.

Unrestrained genocide occurred in Rwanda with little or no international acknowledgement of it until after it had ended.

The world has to learn the lesson from past failures and has to act before it is too late.

Sudan & Iraq had also been intersting:





Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has smuggled weapons of mass destruction into Algeria, Sudan and Libya -- and has played an ongoing role in the war in Sudan between the Islamic government of Khartoum and the black, mostly Christian and animist South Sudanese People's Liberation Army, WorldNetDaily has learned.

[...]

More problematic, however, is the fact that Saddam and his regime have constructed weapons plants in Sudan

[...]

The Iraqi units were deployed to guard Saddam's weapons of mass destruction -- or WMD inside Sudan -- to train the Sudanese in intelligence gathering and to restructure the Islamic Sudanese Army in the same manner as the Iraqi Republican Guard

Why does the US/UN want to get involved in Sudan anyway. Has everyone forgot about Somolia already


Now I'm not condoning Genocide but I think the problem with the world today can be directly linked to the misguided and/or greedy foreign policy by the entire west that insists on interfering in the politics and affairs of other countries that just happen to have somthing that the west wants like Oil for instance.

BTW What type of strategic interest does Sudan hold anyway??
