Peace in Sudan May Not Exist for Long!
by: Admin

As I have mentioned that the Comprehensive Peace Agreement has deficit and the country may experience very hard situation, news came to fall in the same direction.

Two diplomats warned that the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in Sudan needs some processes to salvage it before it drowns and the country engulfs in another war.

Lt-General Lazarus Sumbeiwyo the chief mediator in the peace talks in Naivasha, the central town in Kenya, where some peace talks were held and John Danforth the US envoy for peace in Sudan that time, warned.

The former diplomats urged that unless the international community increases its support to help the peace process in Sudan further, the elections in April 2010 and the referendum in 2011 "may throw the country into massive war,".

They wrote in East African newspaper in Kenya that some crucial provisions are not met until now, in addition to some other facts like that the conditions in the country deteriorate continuously, since the violence in Darfur has increased and the root causes of the conflict has not been addressed.

They added, "The situation in eastern Sudan and in the three transitional areas of Abyei, Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile remains volatile as well,"

The Sudanese government denied allegations last week when Susan Rice, the US ambassador to the United Nations said that Washington is concerned of the flow of arms including heavy weapons to the Southern Sudan from the north and from neighbouring countries.

Misconceptions in Political Concepts!
by: Admin

Some international sources apparently did not read the history of some countries they treat well.

Is the War in Sudan Civil Conflict or Political Dispute?

I have built this entry based on some thoughts I get from simple press release issued by the UNMIS, like that we read here. You can always use press releases to build and write useful opinions in your comments on any political topic in the HOA's Political Scene.

The mentioned press release has as other media sources intend to publish wrong information in the description of the nature of the political conflict in Sudan. A misconception about the conflict as the press release said to be between the North and the South and civil conflict, led always to the wrong judgement.

It is unjust and it sets the minds towards accepting such concept, believing it as a fact and thus dealing with it in the same wrong manner.

However, it appears that even the Sudanese Dictatorial Regimes and the Sudanese Sectarian Parties in Sudan have used it to describe the war in the country by giving it a regional description.

The world accepts this political concept because they use since long time the differences between the North and the South in the international economical and political scene, as they use the East and the West, and the developed and under developed countries to define differences economically and politically.

The war in the south of Sudan, which has erupted one year in 1955 before the independence has political goals. If the Sudanese in the south wage war or if the Sudanese in the north wage war against each other, then the concept would be right.

That never happened in Sudan because simply the reasons of the wars are still political reasons, as they had to be. Civil conflicts also take this direction of understanding, which is not true in the Sudanese case. This could be true in the Somali case after the fall of Mohamed Siad Barre.
