US appeases Sudan's genocidal tyrant while NATO bombs Libya
Examiner ^ | July 19, 2011 | Michael Hughes

Although Sudanese president Omar Hassan Ahmed Bashir meets more than all of the requirements that qualified Libya's Muammar Gaddafi for regime change -- the U.S. has shown an alarming amount of empathy for the oppressor and his cabal in Khartoum.

In fact, Gaddafi's sins pale in comparison to those of Bashir, whose transgressions were concisely enumerated by Doyle McManus in the L.A. Times on Tuesday. Because of his role as the architect of the Darfur genocide -- a campaign which claimed over 300,000 lives -- Bashir became the first sitting head of state indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

...

Bashir's predacious methods have not been relegated to his rivals in the south, considering he has shown no qualms about keeping the entire country impoverished. According to WikiLeaks cables released at the end of last year, Bashir siphoned off nearly $9 billion from state oil funds, stashing most of it in European banks -- an amount that represents roughly one tenth of Sudan's annual GDP.

The U.S. has maintained its propitiative stance with Sudan despite the regime's continuing commitment to a policy of race murder, evidenced by mass graves being discovered in South Kordofan which were captured in satellite photos by George Clooney's Sentinel Project. A UN assessment of Sudan's recent seizure of Abyei concluded that Bashir's forces inflicted atrocities that were "tantamount to ethnic cleansing."

yes.
...the simplest explanation that fits all the facts.

Sudan kills 300,000. Crickets.
Syria kills hundreds. Crickets.
Mubarak kills zero.
and Obama invites the M.B. to the white house,
and helps depose him 2 months later.
Gaddafi kills (allegedly) dozens?
and all NATO bombs the heck out of Libya (2000+ smart bombs)
for months.

Let me say something that is rather provocative: It’s a matter of race perhaps? Think about it.... /s =.=
