How good is Bashir leaving?

28 01 2011

IF [Omar al-] Bashir must leave, whether forced our or–when Hell freezes over–voluntarily, how good is it for Sudan and Darfur? According to a recent Bloomberg article, if the south secedes, Bashir’s rule is in danger…and that may not be the fairytale it seems. All things take time to improve. The situation would not become prosperous and fair right away.

But a threat to his rule could also result in a coup, in which “If there is a coup, [Hassan al-] Turabi would take power, not Thomas Jefferson,” announced Andrew Natsios, George W. Bush’s former envoy to Sudan.

What does this mean? A more detailed opinion piece in a week, after I have a week of EEG’s while being wired to a bed…to see where my seizures are. :p


President Bush: the States Helped!

7 01 2009

According to this article , President Bush has been solidly defending U.S. airlifts of defensive equipment into war-torn Sudan. He will “still care about” the beleaguered region after  January 20th, he says, and President-Elect (I am more optimistic, personally, about this) has been more seemingly earnest and public in raising awareness about the Sudanese\Darfurian genocide. Mr. Bush is very eager to make sure the U.S. is not blamed for inaction.
