China, Russia, Syria, and Sudan

What a collection of countries.  It appears that China and Russia have been implicated by Amnesty International in arms sales to Syria, which have made their way to the Darfur region of Sudan, helping the genocide going on there.  Yu from China denied selling much to African countries, but didn’t deny selling weapons to Syria, though I don’t know what Syria has at stake in Sudan to perpetrate a mass killing there.  The whole thing makes me sick and shows what kind of irresponsible people we’re dealing with when we talk about these countries.  I’m sure the US has sold weapons that have been funneled down to terrorists or psychopaths (see Saddam in the ’80s), but when you sell weapons to a known supporter of terrorists (Syria), it’s pretty obvious what you’ll get.
