Sudan conflict could shake region
Border countries have stakes in oil export business
Question of the Day
South Sudan called Monday’s offensive an act of war.
“Bashir is declaring war on South Sudan. It’s something obvious,” said Philip Aguer, a South Sudanese army spokesman.
The African Union on Tuesday called on Sudan to stop bombing the South and urged both countries to cease hostilities.
Both Sudans may not have the military capacity to sustain a long war, as indicated by the speed with which South Sudan seized Heglig and its apparent incapacity to hold it.
Small Arms Survey, a weapons-monitoring group, reported that Sudan and South Sudan are channeling arms to rebels in each other’s territory in pursuit of land and oil.
“Our position is a peaceful resolution to the conflict,” he said.
A 5,000-troop contingent from South Sudan, Uganda, Congo and the Central African Republic was recently deployed to capture LRA leader Joseph Kony. A protracted war between the Sudans could divert attention and resources from that mission.
