Well... not really, but I've been itching for the opportunity to convey this bit of information to you for a couple of days now.
According to Fareed Zakaria, "There are 6,000 Chinese soldiers in Sudan guarding the continuous, uninterrupted flow of oil from Sudan to China." (Zakaria, Fareed, "The Age of Petrostates," The Brown Journal of World Affairs, Volume XII, Issue II, Winter/Spring 2006, Pg. 17)
6,000 CHINESE soldiers... In Sudan?!?! Why haven't we heard al Jazeera broadcasters ranting against this new invasion of sacred Arab/Muslim soil??? Why haven't the Imams begun screaming for Jihad against these kuffar?
Considering these developments, I'm begining wonder when the Indians are gonna start sending their troops to the region to protect their flow of oil!!!
Such a pathetic region!
