Darfur: From bad to wosrse – we are now fighting terrorism girls and boys

10 Jun

It appears that things have gone from bad to worse in Darfur since the signing of the peace agreement in May.

 Darfur camps worse since Peace Deal

Aid workers in Sudan's Darfur region have told visiting UN ambassadors that the situation has worsened there since the signing of May's peace deal.

as the UN faces threats over Darfur plan

UN ambassadors in Sudan have met with strong opposition from tribal leaders to the deployment of troops in Darfur, including threats of holy war.

It appears there are certain tribal factions fear,” foreign occupation and intervention" and want to remind the Sudanese government of their colonial past.

The cry also has been taken up by Islamic militants. The Al-Jazeera satellite channel on Friday broadcast a videotape by the deputy leader of al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahri, in which he said the U.N. Security Council visit to Sudan was "to prepare to occupy and divide it." In a tape aired on Arab television in April, al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden urged followers to fight any U.N. peacekeeping force in Sudan. If a U.N. force comes to Darfur, Jalaladin said, "we are declaring jihad against it. "It means death. It means defending Sudan and Islam," Jalaladin said.

Well there ya go. Now were fighting terrorist girls and boys; lets get going.

    It seems the “Peace Deal” was a cover up to get those who were speaking out against the violence to shut-up for a little while…

    This is horrible and I just don’t understand how people can do this to other people….

    If we do send troops, wouldn’t that be likely to provoke more terrorism against the West? That may be a risk we should take, but it does sound like a risk.
