Or if you can't do that,perhaps you could give an insight into the Muslim Janjaweed who have been conducting ethnic cleansing in Sudan much more recently! You've been asked several times...

I don't know the particulars of the state of affair in Sudan - I am not a know-it-all. From the little I do know is that it is a war for land between the North and the South - don't turn it into something related to Islam - this blaming everything on Islam has become rather monotonous, redundant and repetitive - try to be more innovative please.

Since you claim that the US is so kind hearted as to send troops out of the goodness of her heart to help the downtrodden and free the oppressed, why aren't they doing anything there then? Could it be because there is nothing of value there I wonder?

Hind surely you can do better than that.

The Sudanese government has been approached but the United Nations and the Organisation of African Unity with demands to sort the mess out. Sudan has ducked and weaved and basically played for time and acted evasive. (Hmm where have we seen that before, Iraq, Iran, this forum). But one thing that Sudan has been adamant about is that no US troops be deployed on its soil. The only way it seems the US could help out is to declare war on Sudan.. But what is stopping the armies of the good muslim nations nearby, Egypt, Syria, Saudi etc, stepping in to protect the mostly Islamic inhabitants of Darfur from the ethic cleansing of their brotherly Arabs?

As for the south of Sudan, that is another matter. (Dharfur is in the south west not the south, I mean it is more west than south). The south of Sudan is where the ongoing civil war is based. Dharfur is a newer thing. Kind of a kick them while their down and take their land thing..

As for there being nothing there of value, well you are wrong on that score also. There are numerous oil wells and rich oil fields in the south of Sudan complete with pipeline plans to the Red Sea, the rights to which make up the balance of issues in the negotiations for a settlement to the conflict there.
