Hard Luck, Jendayi

So atlast she was able to meet Bashir, after being snubbed and kept waiting for two days. But had anything changed?

Am talking about Jendayi Frazer, the US envoy sent by Bush to urge the Sudan government to accept a UN force to Darfur. The answer remains the same and will always be a big NO, she was told.

And here seems to be the main reasons that make the government of Sudan fear the UN, the Sudan Tribune says:

"Sudan has likened the deployment of U.N. troops to a Western invasion that it says would attract militants and cause an Iraq-style quagmire.

But analysts say Khartoum objects to U.N. troops because it fears the soldiers would arrest any officials or militia leaders likely to be indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court".

So the government has skeletons in the closet about Darfur that they don't want the world to know. It is an admittance that something wrong had wrong there. Cool, I couldn't spell it much better than that.
