Will Sudan Escape American Chains?

18 12 0

On December 6, 2019, Sudanese Prime Minister Hamdok announced that Sudan will be pulling all remaining troops out of Yemen.

Under the Bashir regime, in a secret agreement between Israel, Saudi Arabia and Trump, Sudan moved up to 40,000 troops into Yemen with 4000 being killed there, fighting alongside al Qaeda and Columbian mercenaries tied to drug cartels in that nation.

You see, Yemen has become not just a war of survival for those under continual bombardment from a US led coalition that has killed and starved tens of thousands but, in reality, an effort to bolster Saudi Arabia now drowning after years of failed “war of adventure.”

This is Saudi Arabia’s “Vietnam.”

Hamdok’s address in front of the Atlantic Council, key think tank of NATO, indicates a weakening in Trump’s influence over foreign policy in the US, particularly during impeachment proceedings.

Though it is a “given” that Trump will survive impeachment because of the nature of the Senate, a governing body largely controlled by representatives from states with almost no population, states under control of corrupt corporations, Trump can and is likely to be impeached over and over.

Trump’s crimes, alleged or real, involving Ukraine, are nothing compared to his personal financial irregularities that he has fought for years to keep from congress and the public. Whether successfully impeached or not, eventually Trump will end up in prison, that is inexorable.

Hamdok’s address in front of the Atlantic Council is rather amazing. His opponents at home consider him a communist and cite his ties to Russia.

Yet, Hamdok rules in partnership with the Sudanese military, many of whose senior officers face potential war crimes charges tied to the nearly two-decade old war in the Darfur region. From Associated Press, June 11, 2019:

“Sudanese security forces have continued to commit “war crimes and other serious human rights violations” in the Darfur region, Amnesty International said Tuesday, as the African country has been rocked by political turmoil following the military’s ouster of autocrat Omar al-Bashir in April.

The rights organization said the abuses in Darfur at the hands of Sudanese paramilitary units, the Rapid Support Forces, include the destruction of entire villages, as well as “unlawful killings and sexual violence.”

The RSF grew out of the notorious Janjaweed militias mobilized by al-Bashir during the Darfur conflict in the early 2000s. The militias were widely accused of crimes against humanity, and al-Bashir — now jailed in Khartoum — was indicted on charges of genocide.
