"Get yer shithooks off me, ya big ape!"

By Andrea Mitchell:

When Mitchell asked, "Why should the U.S. believe the Sudanese government will stop the killing when the government is still supporting the militia?" Sudanese security guards grabbed her and muscled her out of the room while State Department officials shouted at them to leave her alone.

Boy, those guys were lucky her husband wasn't there, huh?

It is a symbol of the way this government not only treats foreign guests, but more importantly, their own citizens, who have been victims of what the U.S. calls genocide in the Darfur region.

There is no doubt in anyone's mind that the Sudanese government is supporting the militias that have been killing people for the last two years in Darfur.

Every time there's genocide, from the Holocaust to Rwanda, we say we're not going to let this happen again, but we always do. We 've got a chance to do some good in Sudan if Bush will show some willpower to do what's right. Don't bet on it.
