    Sudanese Army Invades Libya

    Sudanese army seizes southern Libyan town - Telegraph

    Officials overseeing the no-fly zone enforced by Nato over Libya said the Sudanese move north of border had not encountered resistance from troops loyal to Col Muammar Gaddafi.
    Officials said control of the town of Kufra and nearby military base granted the Sudanese a key strategic foothold between the regime and the opposition Transitional National Council (TNC) which holds the eastern seaboard and a series of rebel enclaves.
    It seems Sudan is trying to reestablish itself in the global oil market. With South Sudan to become an independent country on the 9th, Sudan will lose a vast majority of it's oil production with it. People are speculating that they are taking advantage of the situation in Libya and trying gain some of Libya's oil fields.

    They seem to be rogue in this. Not siding with the NTC or Ghadaffi.

    Any thoughts?

    Noooooooooooow we got a **** storm!

    NATO--yes, Obama too--will have no choice but to deploy combat units. Primarily, to prevent a bloodbath, but also to push the Sudies back into Sudan. That's not going to sit well with China, at all.

    The Sudies have a much larger, better armed and more experienced armed forces than Libya. I doubt Gaddafi's forces can take them, mush less fight the rebels at the same time. And, the rebels sure as hell can fight both at one time. The rebels would be doing the smart thing by burying the hatchet with Gaddafi for a while, until the Sudies are runned off.

    This has the potential to get real ugly.

    It is NATO's job to protect Libya from outside forces. They are the ones who were trying to kill the country's leader and weaked their defenses.

    Re: Sudanese Army Invades Libya

    The key point here was/is to limit our activity in the area of conflict....Too late.

    Obama has acted in a totally nonsensical, shameful and childish way and has gotten the US involved in a civil war in Libya. Trying to create democracies or even tear down dictatorships when there was/is no threat to American interests.

    Stupid assed Obama has now tied us to a world of political and military intrigue from which, the US cannot abandon until it is too late and we have lost treasure and blood, more importantly blood, in war that is not ours.

    I don't believe there have been any U.S casualties so far, no?

    Now that the Sudies have invaded, it's anybody's ball game.

    Sudan needs to back the hell off! We got there first. If anyone is killing people for oil and water it's by gawd America! We decide who gets attacked and owned in Africa now. Just who in the hell does Sudan think it is?

    I know! Let's invade Sudan!

    Has anyone seen any other reports on this? It just seems like it would be a bit of a headliner if it is true.
