    If that were the case, then NATO would have to bomb itself. NATO planes are a far more destabilizing force than a few Sudanese soldiers.

    Doesn't smell right. The troops met no resistance from loyalist forces. Wouldn't be surprised of Gaddaffi invited them. Then again, Libya/Sudan have had history since the seventies...though that was really more to do with Sudan's previous government.

    Either way, ladies and gentlemen -- this is the first step to a unified army of the EU.

    Re: Sudanese Army Invades Libya

    The article is about 48 hours old and it is the only article I can find on the subject.

    I don’t think it is a big deal and I don’t expect that we will hear anything else about it because it would have been all over the news in the last 48 hours if there was really something going on here.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yeah I'm not seeing this anywhere else.

    If true, this is bad, very bad. I'm not sure it's exactly as it seems, however. I suspect that the Sudanese are there because they brokered a deal with one side or the other to protect the oil fields in exchange for a percentage of oil profits later on. Time will tell.

    You are greatly overestimating the West's level of concern about a civil war in Africa. Since it is said to have happened without incident in some backwater desert area no one is going to give a damn. The fact no report has been given saying this did not occur tells you that no one cares enough about it to bother checking or, if they confirmed it, care enough to write about it.

    True but here is the thing, it was in Libya where there is things valuable to us and our allies so....if this happened and escalated we would have heard about it.

    Re: Sudanese Army Invades Libya

    North Sudan will remain a craphole for a long long time. When the south separated, the north went full-totalitarian; it's like nK and sK. To make things more complicated, the north signed an agreement regarding the oil resources that is untenable. They get the contracts to provide labor for the wells and refineries, but they got no real estate with oil. They are screwed, totalitarian and pissed off. Thy have been involved in border skirmishes with the south for a couple months now. I would consider them unpredictable, if weak.

    My guess is that this is Omar Bashir's last-ditch effort to regionalize the Sudan's own conflict so that he has an excuse not to recognize South Sudan's independence next week. I highly doubt it will work.
