Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi Sunday accused the West of trying to grab Sudan’s oil wealth with its plan to send U.N. troops to Darfur and urged Khartoum to reject them.
“Western countries and America are not busying themselves out of sympathy for the Sudanese people or for Africa but for oil and for the return of colonialism to the African continent,” he said.
The comments by Gadhafi, a mediator in several African wars including Darfur, echo Sudanese government criticisms of a proposed U.N. deployment as a Western attempt at colonization.
“Reject any foreign intervention,” he told a meeting of Sudanese officials and members of a Darfur rebel faction.
Wait, I think China own most of this oil or will own most of it within the next ten years.
I think a post below says this already, but it is time history stops being an excuse for saving your own people.
