    This is the same Government known for boiling alive political opponents. As usual, allowing US bases and being friendly to the US is far more important than human rights issues or democracy. It's this sort of thing which shows the US has no real interest in these issues and that they are just used as excuses for Power/Money/Resource grabs.

    Expect the Sudan to be next on the US invasion list, with humanitarian aid etc being the excuse to get control of the Sudan's oil and gas reserves.

    Anyone who checks out the Fox News website will have seen that they are priming the US public (on behalf of the Republicans/Oil Companies) for a Sudan invasion, based on humanitarian issues.

    Apart from the fact that your thread title says "US Ambassador" when it's the UK Ambassador (and a very bold one at that), I agree, this is a shocker. And as for Sudan, who do you think is arming the rebels in Darfur? Why, yes, it's the good ol' US of A, in collusion with - wait for it - the French in Chad. Funny old world, isn't it? Of course it's probably rubbish, but who can tell?
