As the crisis in Sudan continues, the U.S. doesn’t seem to be planning any serious action, despite Vice President Biden’s previous insistence on immediate military intervention. His passion either isn’t being voiced, or isn’t being heard.
Hopefully, Sudan’s growing involvement with international terrorist groups will provide the U.S. with some additional motivation and justification for action. Although there’s no proof that this support is critical to the terrorists’ operation, not much support is needed in order to facilitate their aims and seriously destabilize chosen regions.
If this report is accurate, then Libya is also helping Hezbollah. This would mean that Gadhafi’s regime, which we’ve all thought was almost entirely motivated by wealth and power, has a strident ideological component driving them to support terrorists even when big contracts are on the line.

The Hizbullah network in Egypt planned to train its recruits in suicide bombing tactics in Sudan and other countries in the Middle East.
Egyptian security sources said Hizbullah operatives told interrogators that the network worked to send scores of recruits for training in Lebanon, Libya, Sudan and Syria. They said Hizbullah had prepared training areas and instructors for the Egyptian recruits.
“The issue is much bigger than Hizbullah,” Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abu Al Gheit said. “It is an attempt to harm Egypt’s interests and twist its policy.”
