Surreal Day of Sudan Bragging of Wisdom at UN, Rape Units Shielded

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, March 12 -- As the UN Security Council met behind closed doors on Sudan and South Sudan on Tuesday morning, Sudanese Permanent Representative Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman arrived in a bright white suit.

  He told Inner City Press, pointing in at the Security Council, “Last week, they were pushing hard for a Presidential Statement to condemn and deplore Sudan on retarding and impeding. Look what happened.”

  He paused. “The success and achievement and accomplishment reached today, this morning, by signing the implementation matrix of the nine agreements proves that there are some people here, few, who are hasty... I don't want to be tough on them. We need patience. We need resilience. We need wisdom.”

  Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman went into the Security Council's quiet room then came back out, adding to Inner City Press, “Imagine if that was adopted.”

  But what will the Security Council adopt? Watch this site.

Footnote: Floating into the Security Council before most members was UN Peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous. After stonewalling three time on Press questions about the 126 rapes in Minova by the Congolese Army, his partners, his DPKO doled out some spin to friendly scribes on March 7.

  But the UN has since refused to identify the two DRC Army units they say were threatened on February 4 and February 18, and has refused to say what the deadline is. This is Ladsous' DPKO. Watch this site.
