Pity Africa

After weeks of scattered clashes that left hundreds dead, rebel militias in southern Sudan have united in a new armed movement against the young southern government, raising the prospect of civil war even before South Sudan declares independence in July. . . .

The formation of the new rebel coalition confirms fears that the spreading patchwork of miniature insurgencies would coalesce under a single coordinated campaign against the southern military, posing an existential threat to the world's newest nation before it even officially comes on the scene.


To stop the genocide in Darfur, the international community split Sudan in two.

Now, the southern half appears to be ready to violently split again, before it's first government is sworn in.

Most of Africa is ungovernable.
