Sudan Cannot Dictate Terms To The UN

Khartoum says this and Khartoum says that.
I am tired of reading, hearing and listening to all the irrational statements of the Sudanese government on Darfur. Because, Sudan cannot overule the Resolution of the United Nations Security Council on stopping the genocide in Darfur. Sudan cannot dictate terms to the UN.

Snow's coming out party with the press is going real good. Plame(CIA/AIDmoney), Wilson(Peace Corps/Niger),Clooney(ONE program just bought by Peace Corps/Syria Anna), US send negotiators,and Darfur the movie(Doctor's Without Borders/7 miillion). Looks like a money move for some AID money like Sarah Chayes of NPR/Mercy Corps.

Only problem is there are several bills before congress that do all this work:

hello there,
if the int'l community gives the sudanese president a feeling that he will be the next saddam then khartoum will not cooperate.
if the sudanese govt and the sudanese people didnt cooperate to solve the conflict then I dont believe america, europe or even the arabs can solve it.

Well, I am sick and tired of you Westerners thinking that you can care more about the people of Darfur than the Darfuri or the Sudanese people themselves, do not forget that all the problems in Africa has it roots in the colonial systems and thier divide and rule policies and exploitation of the Sudanese people. You sucked up all our resources and did little to benefit the people of the country. You were forced to leave, but What did you leave us, conflicts and underdevelopment that we continue to suffer from for ages. Whenever Our country tried to bring a democracy you hault it by support to the dictatorship regimes that you now complain of thier actions, stop the hypocracy and lift your hands off of our country and let us handle our problems on our own. I am not denying the atrocities in Darfur, but even the UN said it is not genocide, it is civil war, Europe had a civil war, US had a Civil war and they emerged from it and rebuilt their countries, if you leave us alone we will solve our problems and rebuild our country. The problem is America, Israel and some other countries do not want peace in Sudan and they do not care about the people of Darfur or Sudan, all they care about is the River Nile, our oil and resources and stratigic location and finding a market for thier GMF.

To be Continued.
