Save Darfur? Or Save Sudan?

NY Times columnist and Darfur advocate Nicholas Kristof recently published an article speaking of the “real danger of the North-South war in Sudan reviving, partly because Darfur has been allowed to fester and because there have been no real disincentives for President Bashir to engage in mass slaughter”.

Kristof fears that what has happened in Darfur may repeat itself in South Sudan. He believes that it may be possible that a “new version” of the Janjaweed is developing and planning to head south.

In short, everyday that we allow the Darfur genocide to continue, the potential for another set of atrocities to occur in a second area of Sudan grows.
