A State Department official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Frazer carried a letter from Bush to Bashir, which generally discussed Bush’s concern about Darfur. She told Bashir that cooperation on Darfur could bring many benefits for Khartoum, though the official declined to specifically confirm them.
Could “many benefits” be referring to lifting sanctions? I doubt it and even if that is the case I don’t think any “carrots” will work at this stage. Bashir has already made himself a target for the Sudanese Islamist groups. If he accepts UN troops, jihad will officially be declared against him and his gang. This is getting more complex by the day and meanwhile innocent people in Darfur still continue to die.
