Which is it?

The title on the front page said one thing;
"Obama offers Sudan incentives to end genocide,"
but the link said something entirely different,
"US unveils new policy of engagement with Sudan."
So, what is it, are we paying them off, or are we doing what LibDems do best, Talk!?

I can hear Barry saying it right now, "Hey Omar, here's a fiver, and, could stop killing all those ethnic Nubians, thanks?"

Stoopid S.O.B. probably thinks it'll work, too.

Sec State Liberal Bitch had this to say about the situation,
"We are looking to achieve results through broad engagement and frank dialogue,"
"But words alone are not enough...Assessment of progress and decisions regarding incentives and disincentives will be based on verifiable changes in conditions on the ground."
I can promise you that there will be little in the way of any real progress, to be sure.

And to show exactly how serious The State Department is, they've got this to say about how they are willing to deal with the government in Khartoum;
"A senior State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said US diplomats would engage with Sudanese government officials but not directly with President Omar al-Beshir, who faces war crimes charges over Darfur. "We have no intention of talking with President Beshir...We think he should get himself a good lawyer... and face the charges."
I sure he's just quaking in his sandles about that one.

Susan Rice, US ambassador to the United Nations, thinks harsh language is going to be enough too, as she, "warned of "significant consequences" for any parties in Sudan who failed to live up to their promises and said there would be "no rewards" for the status quo."

And the raping, government-backed hordes liked the status quo just fine, but are going to like this "Hope and Change" non-sense even more, it seems;
"A top adviser to President Beshir welcomed the change of tack by the Obama administration."Compared to previous policies there are positive points... we don't see the extreme ideas and suggestions which we used to see in the past," Ghazi Salaheddin told reporters. "I will say it is a strategy of engagement, not a strategy of isolation."
Because it means that the goatherd-cum-dictator gets to keep offing his opposition, so long as there isn't any real repercussion from his ongoing actions.

When is this dolt (yes, Barry) scheduled to get run out of town, again?
