Nasty Neighbors Back At It Again

Posted by Maggie Fick on May 16, 2009

Never a dull moment in the Chad-Sudan proxy war. Just when it seemed relations were cooling back down to "unstable as usual," the nasty neighbors were back at it again.

News recently broke that Sudan had accused Chad of launching fresh bombing raids on its territory. Sudan’s foreign ministry said:

This was an act of war from Chad. The Sudanese leadership and the Sudanese army are assessing the situation. Sudan has the right to defend its territory.

And Chad shot back with a tired proverb about Khartoum, calling the Sudanese government ‘the robber who cries thief.’

Hard to know what these latest provocations mean, but stay tuned and we’ll let you know as events develop.
