Peace in Sudan? (round two)

[Media Source*]

It looks like there might be peace in the troubled region of Sudan between the Islamic north and the Christian south. Sudan's Vice President Ali Osman Mohamed Taha and rebel leader John Garang signed the peace treaty in Kenya, vowing to end the 21-year war although based on past records I have doubts about how long that treaty will last.

U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell(C) shakes hands with Sudan's First Vice President Ali Osman Mohamed Taha(L) as the Sudan People's Liberation Movement leader John Garang (R) looks on after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in Nairobi, January 9, 2005. Sudan's government and southern rebels forged a comprehensive peace on Sunday ending Africa's longest-running civil war.

The ceremony took place in Nairobi in a sports stadium. Politicians were not the only ones celebrating the agreement though, as others took a more "festive" approach (Reuters--see source link).
Bare-chested warriors danced and turbaned heads bowed in prayer when Sudan's Islamic government and southern rebels sealed a comprehensive peace agreement on Sunday ending Africa's longest-running civil war.

At the signing ceremony in a Nairobi sports stadium, bare-chested Dinka warriors wearing leopardskin loincloths and white paint on their faces danced for thousands of banner-waving exiles and refugees who planned now to return home.

"If I had wings I would be flying," said Grace Datiro, 35, a southerner who has lived in Kenya for 14 years since war drove her from her home in Sudan's Equatoria region.

This agreement does exclude however the Dafur region where almost two years of fighting have created chaos for the inhabitants who dwell in that region. This agreement will not go well with Osama bin Laden as well as with other terrorist networks who have been hosted in this region. For their to be true peace Sudan will have to cut off all support towards terrorism otherwise we will be back to square one. Selah!
