Ahh... Darfur, for all the anti-chinese rhetorics on the net.. I wondered if any one of them actually knows, or care to know, about the background of this conflict, which was touted as a genocide.|
Let's see... Uganda and Sudan is equally as destructive. However the controversy surrounding Sudan is very suspicious. In 1997, Sudan was listed as the sponsor of terrorism and large funds of US investments in Sudan was divested. Any attempt to invest in Sudan can result in penalties and a 500,000 fine. Northern Uganda, tens of thousands of people have been killed, thousands brutally attacked and some 1.6 million people, about 80 percent of the population, have been driven from their homes in fear of the LRA, which is known for its brutal treatment of civilians. But Darfur so far is said to have about 200,000. ( an est. figure pulled from a hat)
However why is Uganda taken out of the picture? .. Because it's a pro-US ally ?
The answer is: Oil. Sudan has oil resources and since the price of one barrel have risen at a rapid rate over the few years, Darfur received a tremendous media attention creating a blame-game by inappropriately portraying Asian Investors as supporters of the regime in a scapegoat. Now, China imports about 30% of Sudans oil, while Japan is the largest importer, The Chinese oil company bought the oil concession shares from a canadian oil 'Arakis', who in turn bought it from Cevron. Both Arakis and Chevron couldn't find any oil. When the Chinese entered the picture.. oil was then discovered. But this left Chevron out of the picture... things begin to change. The chinese was nailed for causing all the Africa's problem fro their "RUSH" for oil... even though US, both military and businese, are more present there.
If the western media don't mention often enough or at all... It was the Rebels who attacked the Sudanese soldiers first.. that started all the sectarian killings. The rebels actually won almost all the battle against the government forces. As it turns out.. that Chad and Uganda were training and equiping the rebels and Chad , Not only air-supplied the rebels, Chadians troops where among the Rebels. Out gunned, the Sudanese, looked to the Janjaweeds for support, and later China and Russian supplied the Sudanese troops with weapons and manage to confine the conflict from spreading to Sudan Proper. Now, does this looked familiar in any way ? Both Chad and Uganda had US military support and advisors... If you look at the recent US proxy Ethiopia invasion of Somalia.. you would suspect that the Situation the Darfur was a , in act , a Regime change attempt by the US... for OIL.
