Even Richard Nixon Has Soul.....

Ah yes, well the New God Father of Soul has come out Fighting to do to the Sudan what he did to Iraq...
Negroponte's remark linking the janjaweed with the Sudanese government is one of the toughest accusations ever to come out of Washington.

Speaking at the end of a three-day visit to Sudan, the deputy secretary of state said the government must clamp down on the janjaweed, the rebel group that International Criminal Court has blamed for numerous cases of killing, rape, arson and looting in the western Sudanese region for the past four years.

"The government of Sudan must disarm the janjaweed-the Arab militias that we all know could not exist without the Sudanese government's active support," he said.

Never Before has such a courageous position been taken about how, gosh, some times Killing, Rape, Arson and Looting could be a Bad Thing....

But on the Lighter Side we have
Sudan cleared the way for the United Nations to boost support for an African Union force struggling to maintain peace in Darfur when it agreed on Monday to accept U.N. attack helicopters as part of the plan.
...
Khartoum had balked at the inclusion of six helicopters, fearful they could be used for offensive purposes despite U.N. assurances they would be there to protect the peacekeepers.
