Sudan: U.S. to smash us like Iraq
Tuesday, September 7, 2004 Posted: 6:59 AM EDT (1059 GMT)
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (Reuters) -- Washington's threat of sanctions against Sudan over the Darfur crisis is part of a U.S. conspiracy aimed at destroying the government in Khartoum as it did in Iraq and Somalia, a senior Sudanese official said.
"Sudan is not afraid of the threat of sanctions by the United States, which is using the crisis in Darfur to weaken and destroy the government of Sudan in a similar fashion in which they devastated Iraq and Somalia," said Angelo Beda, Deputy Speaker of Sudan's parliament.
Beda, speaking at a news conference in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa late on Monday, was referring to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and U.S. support of a Somalia peace operation that ended in humiliation in 1993.
The U.N. Security Council gave Sudan 30 days to disarm and prosecute Arab Janjaweed militia accused of killing, raping and driving villagers from their land in an 18-month conflict or face unspecified sanctions. The deadline expired on August 30.
U.N. envoy Jan Pronk has called for more pressure to be put on Khartoum but with opinion split among Security Council members after the expiry of the deadline, the United Nations is not expected to take action soon.

Sounds like their beef should be with the U.N.
We don't believe in sanctions, pal.
...Somalia peace operation that ended in humiliation in 1993... under Bill Klintoon no less!
I was glad to here Rudy Giuliani mention the slaughter of Christians in the Sudan. That hasn't gotten much press.
I'm not for the US going into the Sudan but I do think we ought to arm the Christians there with Machine guns.
When your country is going to hell, blame the U.S. and try to rally the unfaithful.
Delusions of importance bump.
Indoor-plumbing envy bump
America has been there and done that. Good luck to Sudan waiting on the UN (Useless Nimrods) to do anything for you.
God bless our troops wherever they may be.
"...a U.S. conspiracy aimed at destroying the government in Khartoum as it did in Iraq and Somalia..."
Yes, but get back in line behind Iran and Syria. Wait your turn.
Take a number, guys.
Why do I sense the spirit of Cleavon Little around here somewhere?
"...the United Nations is not expected to take action soon."
Newsflash of the decade.
One can only hope.
The secret is to bang the rocks together, guys.
Exactly. The Muslims operate on multiple fronts at a time, because the world is too PC to take the war back to them. Let's start arming the determined opponents of Islamic aggression and see how long the Muslims can keep up multiple fronts.
We can only hope...
Sudan should be scared. I hope the US steps into Sudan.
If you insist ...........
The last I heard, Somalia never really had a government to devastate.
