Looking for an excuse to rid the UN of its soil to pursue its unholy war on innocent ethnic Africans, Sudan expelled UN envoy for authoring a blog that reported a serious Sudanese army reversal in fighting insurgents in Northern Darfur. Sudan says that UN envoy Jan Pronk from The Nethrlands demonstrated “enmity to the Sudanese Government and the armed forces” and that his writing was “incompatible with his mission.”
The military had demanded an official apology even as it accused him of “psychological war against the Sudanese Army” and said that Pronk was “persona non grata.”
A UN spokesperson said that the blog reflected “only his personal views” but refused to comment further. The UN wants to inject a new force to replace an under-funded and overstretched African Union peacekeeping force of 7000 soldiers to observe a ceasefire that has claimed over 200,000 lives and displaced over 2.5 million people besides emotionally scarring millions through rampant pillaging and rape by militia called the janjaweed.
Despite world-over condemnation, Sudan is resisting the UN intervention fearing that it would seriously compromise its position vis-à-vis the ethnic African insurgents.
