    Sudan has rejected an offer by the United States to send Marines to increase security at the U.S. embassy in Khartoum, where violent protesters have clashed with police.

    The announcement Saturday follows earlier reports that the United States wanted to send the Marines to bolster security at the embassy amid heavy protests and demonstrations, according to Reuters.

    “Sudan is able to protect the diplomatic missions in Khartoum and the state is committed to protecting its guests in the diplomatic corps,'' Foreign Minister Ali Ahmed Karti told the state news agency SUNA, which Reuters reported

    Wow, does Sudan also get american taxpayer money? Let's see how competent they are...I'd feel more comfortable if our Marines were there, as long as they are allowed to have bullets in their guns.

    I don't understand how Sudan is able to make the call if we are there are not.

    What if they fail?

    Okay, let me make sure that I understand this... Sudan, a country run by Islamist thugs, whose president is under indictment for genocide at the international court at the Hague, a country has restored chattel slavery, that country, is denying us the right to protect our sovereign territory, our embassy, with our own marines...? On what grounds, that they might just prevent a jihadi bloodbath?

    Time to close that embassy and withdraw our staff.

    The staff there is nutty if they don't get out of there.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Why are we even asking permission...errr...offering to send Marines?

    Why are we telling the Sudanese we ARE sending Marines to guar OUR embassy and they can either clear the road when we arrive so they can get there as fast as possible...or die as me clear our own path?

    Since when does the President of the U.S. ask permission from 3rd world shit hole to protect our own people/property?

    Now, now...we must be "fair" to them. And if anything bad does happen, it's Bu$hCo's fault.

    This just in:

    President Romney ceases all aid to Sudan effective immediately. Ships loaded woith food are turned around and aid money directed to our National Debt.
