    France opposes UN Sudan sanctions. :mad:

    France says it does not support US plans for international sanctions on Sudan if violence continues in Darfur.
    The UN Security Council is debating a US draft resolution imposing sanctions on militias accused of "ethnic cleansing" against non-Arabs.

    Wow... France is opposed to taking action.

    Probably because they're afraid of getting their asses kicked by the Sudanese.

    Sacre' bleu!


    "France led opposition to US moves at the UN over Iraq. As was the case in Iraq, France also has significant oil interests in Sudan."

    Damn frogs.

    Not sure what legit reason the French could have for opposing this, especially when expediency is the order of the day in Darfur.

    "...But the US remains sceptical over Sudan's commitment to act.

    The US draft resolution threatens to escalate the sanctions within 30 days if results are not evident.

    But diplomats hope that tough talking will force Sudan to act, our correspondent says.

    They admit that imposing such a resolution on the largest country in Africa is fraught with difficulty, he says."
