Behold the strength of Obama! Sudan won’t allow Marines to protect embassy [Darleen Click]
The One’s messiahness is just not having the pull as advertised
Sudan won’t allow the United States to send a platoon of Marines to protect its embassy from rioting Muslims.
According to a report released by the SUNA state news agency, the country’s government formally rejected the request Saturday. The news agency quoted Sudan’s Foreign Minister, Ali Ahmed Karti, as saying, “Sudan is able to protect the diplomatic missions in Khartoum and the state is committed to protecting its guests in the diplomatic corps.”
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland confirmed Saturday in a terse statement that the Sudanese government had “recommitted itself both publicly and privately to continue to protect our Mission, as it is obligated to do under the Vienna Convention. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely to ensure we have what we need to protect our people and facility.”
The U.S. decided Friday to send in a group of 50 Marines after rioting Muslim breached security at the embassy in Khartoum and entered the compound, which is located outside the city. Speaking on condition of anonymity, a Washington official said the Marines were already on their way to Khartoum when word was received the request was rejected. They were called back, pending further discussions.
The only acceptable “further discussion” is to evacuate all embassy personnel, then raze the compound to the ground and salt the earth it stood on.
Let’s get this straight, I’m f**king tired of listening to whiney-ass Progressives wanting The World™ to “love us.” I want the barbarians to fear us. Nothing less.
