The Tragedy Of Sudan Collapsing As A Resistance State

by Jonathan Azaziah

Apart, obviously, from the 9,000+ Yemeni martyrs, most especially the more than 2,200 children, and the destruction of one of the oldest civilizations in the world, the greatest tragedy of Al-Saud’s aggression against Yemen is the collapse of Sudan as a state of resistance and its adoption of a purely collaborationist, despicably sectarian identity through its participation in the slaughter of Yemenis. Once a bulwark against Zio-Imperialism, serving as a key transit point in the Hizbullah-Iranian-Syrian delivery of weapons to the Gaza Mouqawamah, Khartoum now openly mulls ties with the demonic, usurping entity that cracked the Sudanese state in half… I’m talking an exchange of ambassadors and the whole nine yards.

The bloody conflicts in Iraq, Syria and Libya are the result of the interference by the US, which wants to gain control over the rich natural resources of those countries, Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir told RT.

“The people in Sudan believe that the since the fall of the Soviet Union [in 1991], injustice and oppression has prevailed around the globe as the US became the sole hegemon and began running things with impunity in many regions, including ours,” Bashir said.

In his interview with RT’s Arabic Channel, the Sudanese president labeled Washington’s policies in Middle East and North Africa as “harmful and destructive.”

“Just look at what’s now happening in Iraq and how it spread to Syria. All the suffering that is going in the Arab world is the work of the US,” he said. Continue reading US meddling to blame for ‘all Arab world sufferings’ – Sudan president
