While the doom and gloom crowd are focused on America or some 2012-fantasy, real doom and gloom has been happening for decades in Sudan. Real
conspiracy. Real genocide. Real racism. Child slavery. Mass-rape. One of the most horrible events of the last 100 years is underreported both
in mainstream as well as alternative media (or when was the last time you saw a thread on Sudan?) For anyone really interested in soothing mankinds
pain, Sudan should be a place for humanity to look at and provide investigation and aid. I have been concerned about a number of agendas to downplay
and ignore Sudans struggle. And it looks as if various international forces who dont like each other use the country as their "game field" to wage
horribly savage wars.
The north of Sudan is primarily arabic and muslim whereas the sub-saharan south of Sudan is primarily Christian. Neither muslims nor christians are
the original Religions of Sudan, nor do the south and north actually belong together into one state. Once again arbitrary lines drawn by former
colonial powers in their ignorance of natural borders, are the cause of much of the conflict and suffering. Here's a general timeline of horrors in
1958: Two years after Sudans independence, Ibrahim Abboud seizes control of the civilian Government and imposes a military dictatorship under arabic
rule. People in the south continue to rebel and in...
1962 civil war breaks out between the south and north lasting until 1972 and killing an estimated half a million to a million people.
1964 Abboud is overthrown and a more purely Islamist Dictatorship. Further coups and attempted coups are carried out by various marxist and
1972 A peace-agreement is signed and the south becomes self-governing.
1978 Oil is discovered...in the south
1983 the "Sudan Liberation Movement" from the south starts the second civil war after President Nimeiri tries to take control of the oil fields and
declares "Sharia Law" (Islamic Law) for the whole of Sudan. The war killed 2 Million people, including the deaths in famine and disease.
1989, the conflict still ongoing, Omar al-Bashir of the Muslim Brotherhood (who also founded Hamas in Gaza) seizes power and bans all political
parties, unions, etc, re-implementing an Islamic Dictatorship.
1991 - Human Rights Organizations estimate that in the 90s, 200 000 children have been abducted for slavery by Al-Bashirs military. Child-soldiers
have been deployed by all sides of the conflict.
1991 Sudan supported Saddam Hussein in the war against the U.S. in the early 90s.
1998 The U.S. fires a missile on a pharmaceutical plant that was, according to the U.S., producing chemical weapons.
2003-2011 In Darfur, the non-arabic indigenous population rebels against Islamist rule. The military and the arab "Janjaweed militia" move in to
perform "ethnic cleansing" and mass-slaughter of blacks, killing approximately 400 000 people (some say more). The idea of arab supremacy over
blacks, including black-muslims actually stems from Libyas Gaddafi. The conflict is ongoing.
2009 - Israeli airstrikes in Sudan blow up delivery of weapons to Hamas (Palestine).
Why is the ongoing Genocide in Sudan underreported?
Is it that if black people are the victims of a Holocaust, people are just not that interested?
Is it because arab media claims there is no Genocide and that reports of such are an "American/Israeli conspiracy" and people fall for biased arab
reporting? (Several humanitarian organizations have confirmed the harsh realities stated in this post).
Is it that if Muslims are the perpetrators of genocide, the "politically correct" media would rather not report on it as not to flame the passions
of anti-muslim sentiment?
Or is it that because "Christians" and "Muslims" are using the country as their playing-board and would rather not publicize it?
You will hear a different version of whats happening in Sudan depending on whether the news source is politically liberal or conservative, Arab,
american or European. Sadly that means that undistorted facts will be difficult to come by, except the facts reported by humanitarian
Also, do you notice how quickly we intervene in Libya? Why didnt we do so in the case of Sudan where real problems that concern humanity
