“The leader of the UN’s peacekeeping operations, Jean-Marie Guehenno, fears that al-Bashir’s protests will derail the UN force in Darfur. Sudan demands the peacekeeping force be primarily African, and rejects assistance from Norway, Sweden, Thailand and Nepal.”
How ironic that the two Scandinavian states in question, politically, remain very much distanced from the Jewish state of Israel. Their relationship with the current US administration is perhaps better, but not by much. But it’s more likely that Al-Bashir is just using this latest demand as a ruse to further complicate the UN run peace keeping operation in the Darfur region.
But given the Arab tendency top believe in the wildest conspiracy theories, he might very well believe in this nonsense. More here. *L* KGS
