Hi khartoumi,

haven't been on your blog for a while -- where have all the articles gone?

Anyway, what are you seeing happening in Sudan at the moment, in terms of conflict. A few sources are saying that the fighting has subsided in Darfur but that this is not being reported as this is not the type of thing the US and "Save Darfur" want as destabilisation and chaos allows their continued intervention.

Have you read Keith Harmon Snow's latest article on Darfur? Here's a link:
What do you think of it? Would be good to get the opinion of someone living in Sudan.
You can write to me on

Do you remember who I am?
