This is the same Obama that for years has yawned away at islam atrocities throughout Africa and now with the idiots at CNN who today start their line with ..:Christian militias STARTED this" in Kenya; we are to believe that this WINK WINK man has no agenda?..

Can anybody explain why these two ethnic groups have to share a government and live under the same political leaders so they cannot each rule themselves and determine their own futures?

Well, it was kind of expected.

After all those years fighting for freedom, now they're fighting amongst themselves! Madness.

Let the ballot box decide it ... Violence is never an answer.

The government of Sudan was trying to get as many people out of the region of now South Sudan because of the rich oilfields in that area, much like they did in Darfur. Now South Sudan has partial autonomy the stakes are still the same and Soudan is still trying to (re)gain control of the oil-rich region. The fight for power among the different ethnic groups is aided, if not instigated, by the Sudanese authorities. If the influence of the Sudanese is not recognized by the peacekeepers in South Sudan, this new civil war will explode and in the end Sudan will have enough reasons to take it's semi-autonomy away again and bring it under it's own control again. The war in Darfur can then be expected to flare up again too.

Always seems to be fighting in Africa, tribal or otherwise.
