Musharraf’s actions end up defending the Sudanese genocide

Why the ambivalence?

After making concerned noises about the genocide in Sudan, Pakistan has abstained from a UN vote on humanitarian intervention in the country. Pakistan’s abstention only helps the Sudanese regime and its state-sponsored programme of genocide against the non-Arab Africans. Could it be that in Sudan’s General el-Bashir, Musharraf sees another embattled counterpart in need of a reprieve?
