 昨日アフリカ連合の平和維持部隊支援のためにスーダンに送られた国連部隊のエジプト人中佐が宿舎で殺されたらしい。
 公式には物取りの犯行ということになっているようだけれども、非公式にはJanjawidの犯行という線も捨てられてはいないようで、なにしろスーダンの出来事故闇の中。
エジプト外務省はこの事件をうけてcondemned in a statement the "sinful aggression" in which Nazir became the "casualty of an attack by armed elements."だそうだから、Janjawidの犯行と断じているようです。

 これまでにもアフリカ連合の派遣部隊は十数人殺されており、彼らと国連軍を入れ替えるための最初の部隊だったらしいいんだけど、アルバシルって男もこれまでのやり口を見ていれば頷けるんだが、事件後国連事務総長に電話を掛けて「いい加減な情報に基づいてがたがた言ってないで現地に状況見に来い!!」と宣ったそうで、国連事務総長もバグダットの爆音にビビッた腑抜けぶりが伝わっているのかなめられたものです。

 これは余談ですが、5月23日のウオールストリートジャーナルにSudan's Enablersというタイトルの記事が載りました、いまはすでに有料バージョンになっているので読めませんが、書いているのはダルフールに特段の関心を持つことで知られる女優のミア・ファーローと地雷でノーベル平和賞をもらったジョディ・ウィリアムズです。
この人はリマ会議にも行っていて、日本のメディアの質問に対して日本のデレゲーションを非難する発言をやったのばかりが報じられてますが、日本の記者に「日本は?」と問われれば普通「日本は...」と答えます。
同様に「アメリカは?中国は?ロシアは?イギリスは?ドイツは?」という質問をやればおそらく彼女は「全部けしからん!!」と答えたでしょう。

Gunmen in Darfur Kill U.N. Peacekeeper
U.N. military officer killed by robbers in Darfur

Sudan's Enablers
By JODY WILLIAMS and MIA FARROW
We met in Abeche, eastern Chad, in February of this year. We were both working for the United Nations, focusing on the violence in Darfur and how it has spilled over into local and refugee populations in Chad and the Central African Republic. We had something else in common as well: Both of us had been inadvertently funding the atrocities we were trying to stop. This funding came through our holdings in investment companies such as Fidelity, which has major holdings in PetroChina and Sinopec-two Chinese oil companies that have poured billions into Khartoum's coffers. At least 70% of Sudan's oil revenues have been used by Khartoum to purchase attack helicopters, Antonov bombers and small arms used to kill and inflict immeasurable suffering upon the population of Darfur. After discovering our indirect complicity in Khartoum's crimes, we moved our pension plans into investment companies that are not enabling mass atrocities.
We also resolved to become more involved with the various efforts to divest from companies doing business with Sudan. Fidelity has not been the only, or even the largest, U.S. firm enabling the slaughter in Darfur. Earlier this month, Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway, which has roughly $3 billion invested in PetroChina, voted not only against divesting, but against taking any shareholder action on the issue. Mr. Buffett points out that only PetroChina's parent company, China National Petroleum Company (CNPC), operates in Sudan. Since subsidiaries generally do not have control over parent company operations, Mr. Buffett argues that targeting PetroChina for CNPC's transgressions is misguided. But PetroChina and CNPC are two faces of the same entity. The management of the two overlaps: The president of CNPC is the president of PetroChina, and the CFO of CNPC is PetroChina's CFO as well. Billions of dollars are routinely transferred between the companies. PetroChina is CNPC's largest customer and accounts for at least 63% of CNPC's total assets. Furthermore, PetroChina was explicitly set up to shield CNPC from investor scrutiny and complaints about the underwriting of atrocities in Sudan. Mr. Buffet states that the real problem in Sudan is with China, not CNPC and PetroChina. But China's interests in Sudan are represented almost entirely by CNPC/PetroChina, which exports between 50% and 80% of Sudan's oil to mainland China. Finally, Mr. Buffett claims that if PetroChina/CNPC withdrew from Sudan, Khartoum would take its oil business elsewhere. But the more likely result of pressure from Mr. Buffett would be that China, which has nothing to gain from withdrawing its oil interests, would instead use its leverage to pressure the Sudanese Government to halt the atrocities in Darfur. Mr. Buffet has been justly lauded for his generous contributions to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. But it is difficult to comprehend how a man can be a true humanitarian while offering billions of dollars to a company that is underwriting Khartoum's crimes. Only China invests more money in PetroChina/CNPC than Berkshire Hathaway.
How many more Sudanese villages will be destroyed?
How many more hundreds of thousands will be displaced?
How many more women will be raped?
How many more families will be torn apart?
How many more children will die of violence, disease and hunger?
How much longer will the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway ignore their moral responsibility to discontinue their support of a company so intimately connected to crimes against humanity?
Ms. Williams, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997, recently headed a U.N. Mission on Darfur.
Ms. Farrow recently returned from her fourth trip to the Darfur region.
