Darfur this weekend

19 May

China anger over Darfur criticism

To keep pressure on China is mandatory.

It is also mandatory for major news organizations and little bitty blogs to keep
noting the very large part the government in Khartoum plays in the displacement, starvation, rape and murder of it’s own people.

DARFUR: U.N. SPECIAL ENVOY JAN ELIASSON SPEAKS ON POLITICAL PROCESS

Eliasson, the U.N. Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Darfur, said at a Headquarters press conference yesterday that the foundation for a credible political solution in Darfur was now established, even as pressure mounted for the consolidation of international support for the political process before emerging problems became irreversible under deteriorating conditions.

Eliasson, speaking upon returning from a third visit to Sudan with Salim Ahmed Salim, his African Union counterpart, said a “snapshot” of Darfur would show three or four refugee camps whose tens of thousands of inhabitants had been there for three years.

It would also show the fear, dehumanization and fatigue that led to radicalization as arms began to flow in.

He said ravaged villages were marked by charred black squares on which houses had once stood, while an intact village, now occupied by a new tribe, was an indicator of the problems to come once the internally displaced began returning home.

    The situation in Darfur, as in many places in the world not yet completely developed, is that economically they are often dependent of large amounts of money for development from other countries through investments in their natural or agricultural resources. In this case it is Oil. China invests heavily in Sudan’s oil and is also the major exporter of Oil from Sudan. China potentially will own (in a manner of speaking) up to seventy percent of the oil production there within the next ten years)

    Sadly former colony nations are apt to be run by corrupt governments. They are also likely to be inhabited by people fearful of recolonization by imperialist nations and rightly so.

    These corrupt tyrannical often racist governments are seduced from an economic standpoint by larger governments.

    Unfortunately in the meantime their people, ( starving- displaced – fighting for water ) are murdering and raping each other in government sanctioned fashion.
