Washington - The United States is sending a platoon of Marines to Sudan to bolster security at the US embassy in Khartoum, an American official told Reuters on Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The Pentagon, responding to a wave of anti-American protests sweeping the Middle East, has taken similar steps in Libya and Yemen as fury over a film that insults the Prophet Mohammad tore across the region.

    Will bashir allow that to happen? If he does so he must not cry when he wakes up aboard a us millitary aircraft enroute to the hague.

    How what would a platoon of marines be able to protect what ? Maybe an makeshift spy Buoy in the gulf?They should have send someone with more territory experience ,like the desert fox and camels.

    jus been counting how many moslem or is it islamic countries there,they are quiet a number.at this rate is the giant usa going to manage sending platoons to each one of them?sometimes a very complicated and intelligent country like usa can react stupitly.why not wait for the situation to calm down as has happened before than agravating an already bad situation by ceating an 'invasion' impression to groups like al qaeda?at this rate having a national army is fast fling out of the,coz uncle sam will take care every country's security needs.
