Sanctions to threaten Sudan

From the Heritage Foundation:

Sanctions that threaten Sudan’s regime and its oil industry could end the crisis in Darfur. It is past time, argues James Phillips, for countries to put aside their financial interests and let the Security Council act.

Sudan’s regime engineered the crisis “to suppress popular resistance to its radical Islamic agenda.”

So far, 1.2 million people have been driven from their homes, nearly 2 million need humanitarian aid that the regime hinders, and about 50,000 have died.

The U.N.’s response? A timid resolution, promising vague “additional measures” if the killing does not stop.

This foot-dragging cannot continue, concludes Phillips.
