African leaders have authorized the deployment of an armed force that will have the mandate to protect civilians in the western Sudanese region of Darfur by the end of July.

Meanwhile, Sudanese Foreign Minister Mustafa Ismail warned Washington not to spark an Iraq-style crisis over the civil war in Darfur , insisting in comments published Friday, July 9, that US sanctions threats only aggravated the situation.

The African Union (AU) leaders ended a summit meeting in Addis Ababa Thursday, July 8, taking a tough and determined stance on the crisis in the Sudan and other hotspots as they vowed to promote peace and stability to boost African development.

African Union vows to tackle Darfur

African leaders ended a summit meeting, taking a tough and determined stance on the crisis in the western Sudanese region of Darfur and other hotspots as they vowed to promote peace and stability to fuel African development.

They resolved to back up their words with action, authorizing the deployment of an armed "protection force" to Darfur, the theatre of what the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

History Of Colonialist Intrigue In Sudan Remains Unabated

Minus the Islam trumpeting parts of this article, some aspects are worth considering and reasoning out.
-Ayinde


Last week US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, announced a visit to Sudan and the Darfur region in particular. This was following on from the NATO summit in Turkey. Several western bodies have dubbed Darfur a flashpoint. However the saddening Sudanese situation should be understood in light of the US backing of the SPLA (Sudan People’s Liberation Army), coupled with the pressure placed on the Khartoum government. What also needs to be considered is the threat of US intervention and the plan to divide the country of Sudan on 'ethnic' lines. This spells a dire future for Sudan and the region as a whole.

Following the blood letting in Iraq the US government seems all the more insistent on its hegemonic ambitions. Its propaganda programs are in motion, planting the seeds for either an invasion or a mighty application of pressure. All this designed to force the Sudanese government's hand in what is popularly labelled the finalised negotiated settlement. This may more accurately be described as a US enforced final solution that is designed to place control over the land of Sudan with the US, courtesy of agents such as Garang. The Sudanese government are just as, if not more, culpable in this plan. Its actions have provided a pretext to America’s colonialist intent. It has agreed to the American demands and placed the SPLA on a false pedestal of credibility. This has allowed the pushing through of SPLA/US demands. What therefore is the future of Sudan and how can the nightmare vision laid down for it be averted?
