NEW YORK — The London Telegraph reports

“tens of thousands of
Chinese troops and prisoners forced to work as security guards have been
moved to Sudan.”

I believe it — especially in light of what WorldNetDaily’s Charles Smith has been reporting in recent weeks about China’s other moves in Sudan.

The Chinese troops are not there to baby sit the brutal Islamic regime that crucifies Christians, bombs schools and hospitals and employs a scorched-earth policy against its own dissident populace. It would be bad enough if the Chinese were there to prop up the regime. Instead, according to the Telegraph report, they have been sent to prepare for a major offensive in the South.

A Sudanese government document claims the Chinese are prepared to deliver up to 700,000 personnel for such a campaign. Such a report stretches credulity without the context of WorldNetDaily’s earlier dispatches.

Smith reported last month that

the United Nations suspended
humanitarian relief flights into Sudan amid reports the regime is using
a Chinese-supplied radar to track and bomb the U.N. missions.

Did you catch that? The Sudanese used Chinese radars to track the U.N. humanitarian flights so they could bomb the recipients of the humanitarian aid. That tells you something about the character of this regime. Even the U.N., which sat by and watched the genocide in Rwanda a few years ago, was repulsed by the barbarity.

That story by Smith did not get much attention from the rest of the U.S. press for a couple reasons: 1) U.S. reporters and editors don’t care all that much about foreign news reporting; and, 2) that story broke on WorldNetDaily the same week as Paul Sperry’s

porngate
shocker, which got plenty of attention.

No one has ever accused the U.S. press establishment of being able to pay attention to more than one story at a time.

But earlier, Smith had another report that lends credence to the Telegraph story.

In July,

WorldNetDaily reported that Sudan had acquired 34 new jet
fighters from China.

“The Chinese-built medium-range radar unit at Juba is reported to be less than 200 miles from Lokichokio in Kenya, where the humanitarian flights originate,” Smith’s report said. “In addition, the Sudanese air force has modified Russian-built Antonov An-24 transport aircraft to serve as long-range bombers. The Antonov bombers directed by the radar at Juba are able to intercept and destroy the relief flights when they land inside southern Sudan.”

Now that we know about this, what can be done about it? Don’t expect the U.N. to get involved anytime soon. Remember that China is a member of the U.N. Security Council. As such, it can veto any U.N. effort to subvert its war in Sudan.

It’s likely the Sudanese-Chinese offensive against the rebels (and innocent civilians) in the south will come soon. Why? Because China owns the White House until at least Jan. 20. Beijing’s cash played a critical role in electing and re-electing Bill Clinton. He’s the Manchurian President. He won’t lift a finger against his patrons.

If China is really going to mobilize tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of troops in an African war, it is probably going to do it before a changing of the guard at the White House — though, to be honest, George W. Bush has not exactly been a tiger when it comes to recognizing the Chinese threat.

Still, no matter when it comes, a Chinese invasion in Africa would be — in diplomatic parlance — very destabilizing.

Many U.S. defense analysts have not expected China to make daring military moves for at least a decade. If Beijing feels enough confidence to create a client state in oil-rich northern Africa and pour troops and materiel in there, U.S. defense planners may be in for a shock.

While the U.S. is bombing Iraq in a senseless, never-ending mission designed to prevent Saddam Hussein from selling oil, China is using its military to take effective control of the oil fields in Sudan.
