    It's nice and all, but judging by the rest of Africa, they're going to need a lot more work and a lot of luck.

    But kudos to them for throwing off the Muslims.

    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    Maybe the genocide will stop now, as long as they don't start fighting among each other. Still a long way to go, but at least they've thrown off the muslims.

    I saw a pretty nasty video about this in the past.
    If they couldn't defend themselves before, I'm not sure
    what an imaginary line is going to do.

    I got a strong feeling that this isn't going to change much
    for a while until they can strongly enforce their
    boundaries and protect people once they figure out how
    to divide their oil.

    Although I guess they need to start somewhere.

    well, its certainly a step in the right direction. It beats being executed and displaced in camps

    It helps the South has quite a few oil fields...some thirsty consumption country will assist.

    Doesn't look especially good, but best wishes to them.

    From the article:

    "More than a half-dozen renegade groups are battling the government, some with thousands of fighters. And relations with the north are still dicey. Negotiators have yet to agree on a formula to split the revenue from the south’s oilfields, which have kept the economies of both southern and northern Sudan afloat. And Mr. Bashir’s army has been pounding southern-allied rebels who have refusing to disarm just north of the border in the Nuba Mountains, which some analysts worry could drag the whole region back into a full-scale war."

    There really aren't too many examples of new nations states (winning independence from a past state or colonial power) created in the context peace....India was the most peaceful that I can think of.
