Voting for S. Sudan independence; action from the top?

12 09 2010

Sudan is voting on a referendum that could mean independence for Southern Sudan. The idea of independence for S. Sudan has been ongoing for years and who knows if it will/can happen?

President Obama and Gen. Scott Gration–evidently with Sudan again–seem to believe it can. President Obama is working with Gration on a “diplomatic offensive” to keep the vote from being manipulated. Major Gration met with Sudanese officials in the north and south, discussing a “schedule” for steps the US willing to take to aid Sudan.

President Obama will attend a UN meeting regarding Sudan, which will be headed by Secretary General Ban-Kai Moon, Sept. 24th.

Let’s see if something gets done this time.

There are a lot more details in the source article, which is provided in the link above.
