US Special Envoy Recommends Force

US special envoy to Sudan Richard Williamson reportedly recommended US president George Bush coerce the Sudanese government into ending the Darfur conflict.

Williamson’s recommended actions included military force against the Sudanese army, an embargo against oil sales, and temporary blockage of telephone, cell phone, and internet communications in Khartoum.

Providing missiles to South Sudan to protect against retaliation by Khartoum was also on Williamson’s list.

According to reports, Williamson’s action plan was blocked by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and US National Security advisor Stephen Hadley.
