In about 4 years, the Sudan will no longer be Africa's largest country.

Kizzie, why do I read this "thought" like a warning to the world to prevent it happening? Am I being over-reactive or reading too deep between the lines? :-)

I will be back.;)

I would love if the world prevented to happpen because I dont want to separate.
90% of the refugees here want it, according to my father, he attended a meeting in south sudan where top officials were present. 90% want separation

Crushed by ingsoc, i dont believe so. South Sudanese ruled themselves before and they are good at it. South sudan is a rich a region so they will do well. Darfurians are more dependant on the central govt. South Sudanese can rule themsevles, I'm not sure the darfurians can.

awww kizzie. I'm sorry, but I'm for separation too. :'( Too much for it, despite my own worries.

The south Sudanese that I've talked to all want it. 90% doesn't seem to far off. I remember my dad telling me that I'll always be a refugee or a second class citizen if south Sudan stayed with the north (Ok, my dad is kind of crazy and bitter and he did a good job passing it on to us). Therefore, Sudan as one always made me feel wary of my identity. As messed up as this sounds. I'm very quick to say South Sudanese. I only say Sudanese when I'm being objective, but when I do, I feel like I'm taking on an identity that's not mine. Blaaaaaaaaaaah.

I'm not helping much am I? :'(

Dahlia,
I did notice this in Cairo. Many south sudanese here say they are from south sudaan not just sudan. in the begining it angered me, i know we r gonna split but 4 now we are one country so lets just say sudan:D :$
