Guilty!

The judge in the USA ruled against Sudan in the case concerning the bombing of USS Cole. Bashir now have lot more to worry about.

Why don't they learn from Libya? Libya had abandoned terrorism, nuclear weapons and support to extremist groups and has become American ally! Qaddafi can be cunning. If Bashir thinks he can get away with Qaddafi-like tactics of the 80's and 90's he got the script all wrong. This is the 21st century.

well BK,

I don't think Bashir is right..but I don't think that becoming allies to America is exactly the best thing either. I mean is there proof that Sudanese government is still supporting terrorist groups and how?? do we even have the money to do that??? Plus when you look at the situation of other neighboring countries that are considered allies to america I don't believe that they are in a better situation (I am not talking about the economic factors especially concerning oil countries of the persian gulf) These governments are pretty much puppets in American government's hands. They cannot do anything that America doesn't approve of. That doesn't exactly spell out autonomy now does it?

I agree with the comment above, I would also add that China has invested heavily in Sudan and will continue to do so, given the way things are looking on the world stage that can only complicate things further.

The question that should be asked is: what had " Sudan" or Bashir, for that matter got to gain by being so arrogant and defiant in the eyes of the international community? Towing the line is not the ideal, but you cannot push yourself to be a pariah state so that you are seen as opposed to America.

It is not America, but international community that is concern. America is quite visible because it is load, has the money and resources to act as the global police.

The world is different now, that when you cough in your own backyard it is heard in Timbuktu. It is about living in the world that is becoming a village. It is because our destinies are getting wrapped up together. Sudan has a lot to gain by being a good neighbour, not an enemy to the whole world.

I am not saying everyone should bow to America. I oppose lots of its policies, but doesn't mean I should go out of my way to pick a fight. I have more problems in my own house.

hi BK,

I completely agree with u in the fact that Al Bashir is arrogant and trying to pull Sudan into a deep hole, that's why i mentioned that I don't agree with his policies. Now u mentioned international community and being a good neighbor. Now that would be great if we live in a perfect world. Unfortunately most of our neighbors are also being bad neighbors (not that I'm trying to condone Sudan's faults or anything) but many of our neighbors have also played a very effective role in creating problems for Sudan. The only way any country in this world can be a good neighbor and have good relations with other countries all the time is if everybody stayed out of everybody's internal business, which is clearly not the case with anybody. I am one hundred percent anti-Sudanese government but when it comes to picking a fight with the international community and America in particular I think that Sudanese government didn't start the "fight". IF those countries didn't try so hard to meddle with Sudanese issues (for what ever reasons they have) I don't think that Al Bashir and his government would have tried to play the role of the hero.

"IF those countries didn't try so hard to meddle with Sudanese issues ..."

That is exactly the point, Daana. The world no longer sits on the fence and let you do WHAT you like in your country the way you want anymore! You cannot kill your own people in cold blood and say it is your internal business. You can no longer hide behind the "no meddling" tag. When people die because of poor and unjust policies, it is not interference but moral obligation of the international community.

Khartoum knows this facts, that is why they allow AU forces in Darfur. Their reasons for refusing UN is completely different. Why should AU care about people dying in Darfur anyway, since it is a Sudanese internal problems? THAT is meddling, you know.
