Sudan Rejects Darfur Proposals

Posted on Dec 14, 2006

Sudan was unimpressed by threats from the U.S. and Britain to adopt alternative measures, including a proposed no-fly zone, to address the worsening humanitarian crisis in Darfur, where the U.N. estimates around 200,000 people have died.  Meanwhile, Khartoum continues to prevent U.N. peacekeepers from entering the country.


Foreign Minister Lam Akol told the BBC that “threats, blockades and no-fly zones ... would not solve the problem” but would increase suffering in Darfur.

The U.S. says it might take up “other options” in Darfur, while the UK has mentioned a no-fly zone.

Some 200,000 people have died in Darfur since 2003, the U.N. says.

The violence has intensified in recent months despite the presence of some 7,000 African Union peacekeepers.

But Sudan rejects plans for the United Nations to take control and increase the number of peacekeepers to 20,000.

All of you Jimmy Carter/Dennis Kucinich/I’d Like To Buy The World A Coke types—-pay special attention to what is happening in Darfur. This is what happens when Islamofascism takes after Christian folk in a country. Do you really think these radical Islam monsters can be reasoned with? Do you really believe that effete sycophants like John Kerry or Al Gore could actually flatter Islamofascism into a peaceful state? The fact is that Islamofascism wants to destroy all non-Muslim parts of the world, and that even includes the leftist “ho’s” who have “serviced” all of the world’s monsters throughout history. Open your eyes and ears, and ask the Wizard for a brain, all you liberal scarecrows!
