African Diaspora: South Sudan: When the Empire is Your Liberator, You're Not Really Independent
Sudan
By Glen Ford
January 20, 2014 - blackagendareport.com


“The South Sudanese military has broke up into its component warlord parts.”

For decades, the United States and Israel sought to bring about the fracturing of Sudan, which had been, geographically, the largest nation in Africa. Secession of the South was a special project of Israel, whose most enduring and fundamental foreign policy is to spread chaos and dissention in the Muslim and Arab worlds. Sudan, under the political control of the mostly Muslim North, joined the Arab League immediately upon independence, in 1956. Israel has sought to destabilize Sudan ever since, both to strike a blow at “Arabized” Africans and to curry favor among Christians on the continent.

John Garang, who rose to leader of the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army, received military training in Israel in 1970, during Sudan’s first civil war. However, Garang favored keeping the South in federation with a united Sudan. In 2005, under a Comprehensive Peace Agreement, Garang became vice president of the whole of Sudan and premier of the southern part of the country. He died in a mysterious helicopter crash six months later. Garang was succeeded by Salva Kiir, who sports a black cowboy hat given to him by President Bush, in 2006.

African Diaspora: Will Sudan be Re-Colonized?
Sudan
By Stephen Gowans, Blog
June 26, 2007


The United States is maneuvering to introduce a UN peacekeeping force into Darfur, as a first step to securing control of the region's vast supply of oil. US control of Darfur's petroleum resources would deliver highly profitable investment opportunities to US firms, and scuttle China's investment in the region, thereby slowing the rise of a strategic competitor whose continued industrial growth depends on secure access to foreign oil. Washington is using highly exaggerated charges of genocide as a justification for a UN intervention it would dominate, while at the same time opposing a workable peacekeeping plan acceptable to the Sudanese government that would see the current African Union mission in Darfur expand.

While Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir is often presented as obstinately opposing the introduction of peacekeepers into Darfur, Sudan has already accepted an AU force, urges the strengthening of the current AU mission, but opposes its replacement by Western troops. Bashir's fear is that a Western military presence will become permanent, and that Sudan — the first country south of the Sahara to gain independence — will be the first country to be re-colonized.

African Diaspora: The matrix: SUDAN
Sudan
Depopulation and Perception Management

by Keith Harmon Snow
March 28, 2005


"I don't know that there's any significant CIA role in Sudan."

--Smith College Professor Eric Reeves


Raging in Sudan for the past 18 years is a "civil war" - by implication Africans killing Africans -- which has devastated millions of human lives. Human rights advocates have also documented horrific political repression by the National Islamic Front (NIF) government of Khartoum. Using food as a weapon, disrupting planting cycles and social services, and pillaging food stores, the war has brought unmerciful suffering on millions of people. Some 1.7 million Sudanese have died, often noncombatants, often women and children.

In the Smith College lecture reported by the Voice (Dec. 2000), Professor Eric Reeves decried the NIF as "the only party that wants the conflict to continue." Voice correspondent Dimitri Oram says his article entirely ignores the opposition Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) because the SPLA was hardly discussed by Reeves. It is "a very one-sided war," Reeves says. "For example: the government has an air force, while the opposition forces lack even a single plane."
