Bush gives Sudan 'last chance'

The US president has warned Sudan's president that he has one "last
chance" to stop violence in Darfur before the US imposes sanctions and
considers other punitive actions.

George Bush said he had decided to give Ban Ki-moon, the UN
secretary-general, more time to pursue diplomacy with Omar Hassan
al-Bashir, the Sudanese president.

He said to avoid sanctions al-Bashir must allow deployment of a full
joint UN-African Union peacekeeping force to Darfur, end support for
Janjawid militias, reach out to rebel leaders and allow humanitarian
aid to reach the people of Darfur.

"President Bashir should take the last chance by responding to the
secretary-general's efforts and to meet the just demands of the
international community," Bush said, making clear he would not wait

Bush's warning comes just days after Sudan told the UN that it would
accept a 3,000-strong UN force and equipment – including attack
helicopters - to help the African Union force struggling to maintain
security in Darfur.

Violating agreements

Bush accused al-Bashir of routinely violating past agreements.
Speaking separately to non-governmental organisations on Wednesday,
Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, also voiced scepticism
that Sudan would honour agreements over Darfur.

"The fact of the matter is that we need to be prepared for the outcome
that we have seen so often with the Sudanese, which is promises that
are not met," she said.

Outlining the sanctions Sudan would face, Bush said the US treasury
department would bar 29 companies owned or controlled by the Sudanese
government from the US financial system, making it a crime for
American companies to do business with them.

Washington would also impose sanctions on individuals responsible for violence.

He raised the possibility of an international no-fly zone aimed at
preventing Sudan's military aircraft from flying over Darfur and
accused the Sudanese of painting military planes white to disguise
them as United Nations or African Union aircraft.

"I'm also looking at what steps the international community could take
to deny Sudan's government the ability to fly its military aircraft
over Darfur, and if we don't begin to see signs of good-faith
commitments, we will hear calls for even sterner measures."

Bush said he would direct Rice to prepare a new UN Security Council
resolution that would apply new sanctions against the government,
imposing an expanded arms embargo and prohibiting it from conducting
any offensive military flights over Darfur.

But he said "the situation doesn't have to come to that".

More than 200,000 people have been killed and 2.2 million forced to
flee their homes in Darfur in nearly four years of fighting between
the government and ethnic African rebels.

The Israeli and worldwide Zionist movement doesn't like the current
government in Sudan. Sudan is one of the 'periphery' states of
non-Arab Muslims, like Turkey and Iran, particularly targeted by
Israeli geopolitical theoreticians, but has a government that is too
strongly Islamist for Zionist tastes. Israel has in fact been accused
of providing arms to rebels against the central government. The
current campaign to attack Sudan under the guise of protecting the
people of Darfur is another manifestation of Zionist attempts to
create 'regime change' in Sudan. Examples: -- "Zionist rain of death
on Sudan"

Outrage is provoked by media stories of mass rapes and photos of
desperate refugees. The charge is that tens of thousands of African
people are being killed by Arab militias backed by the Sudanese
government. Sudan is labeled as both a "terrorist state" and a "failed
state." Even at anti-war rallies, signs have been distributed
proclaiming "Out of Iraq—Into Darfur." Full-page ads in the New York
Times have repeated the call. Who is behind the campaign and what
actions are they calling for? Even a cursory look at the supporters of
the campaign shows the prominent role of right-wing evangelical
Christians and major Zionist groups to "Save Darfur." -- Sara

Chad, which was once a French colony and still is occupied by French
troops, is accusing Sudan of supporting and encouraging an April 14
raid on its capital, Ndjamena. It is threatening to expel 200,000
Sudanese living in Chad who get their support from the office of the
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Sudan—which at
one time was a British colony, but has since been using its oil to
develop an independent economy—charges that Chad has been supporting
rebellion in Darfur. Sudan wants the UNHCR to financially support the
15,000 Chadians who have fled to Sudan recently to escape heavy
fighting in eastern Chad. The fierce fighting in eastern Chad at the
end of March resulted in the combat death of Chadian Army commander
Brig. Gen. Abakar Youssouf Mahamat Itno, underlining the army's
decline. ....Darfur is known to have major yet untapped oil reserves,
