Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir is the President of Sudan. On 1989 June 30, al-Bashir led the army in a coup deposing then President Al-sayyid Ahmad Al-Mirghani and Prime Minister Sadiq al-Mahdi. He became Chairman of the Revolutionary Command Council for National Salvation and took most of the po…wer in Sudan. On 1993 October 16, Omar Al-Bashir disbanded the Revolutionary Command Council and all political parties and appointed himself President of Sudan. As president, al-Bashir transformed Sudan into a single-party Muslim state. The US listed Sudan as a state sponsor of terrorism, putting heavy economic pressure on the state, and even destroyed a pharmaceutical factory in Khartoum with a cruise missile. In 2003 a civil war started in the province of Darfur, and mass genocides were committed before the war ended in 2004. The International Criminal Court (ICC) now wishes to try al-Bashir for genocide. In 2010 April, multi-party elections were re-instated, and al-Bashir was re-elected. (MORE)

There's no genocide in Sudan, yet. Number of people who died in Sudan's Darfur is nothing compared to number of people who died in Congo, Iraq (more than 650,000 human beings) and Afghanistan (only god knows how many). Sudan's official language (mainly in the North) is Arabic. That makes the Sud…anese people as Arab as the Indians and Nigerians are British!!! The conflict in Darfur is financed by external forces. The rebels' leaders live in five stars hotels in Paris, Rom, London, and Washington. The Sudanese government, as bad as you may think, has it's own resources for money and weapons. The question is: who pays the rebels to fight??? Why Darfur's conflict is all over the media, right after the end of the civil war between the North and the South??? Who benefits from instability in Sudan, and Africa??? (MORE)

The main fighting in Sudan has always been between the dominantArab Muslim and the Black African christian and animist in thesouth. After Independence, the first civil war starting in 1955 andending in 1972 when the south was given greater autonomy, but asecond civil war broke out in 1983 mainly bec…ause of an attempt toimpose Islamic Shariah Law over the whole of the Sudan until acease fire was agreed in 2002 but before finalization of that in2003 Black African rebels in the Darfur region in the west of Sudanstarted attacking government targets to press for more resourcesfor their region and demanding an end to discrimination againstBlack African people. The Arab Muslim Sudanese government tooksevere reprisals through Arab militia known as the Janjaweed. Theycarried out mass executions and ethnic cleansing forcingdisplacement or slaughter of over two million black Africans manyof whom fled across the frontier into neighboring Chad or otherareas in the Sudan.

Unfortunately, the Sudan has a deeply entrenched poverty. Much ofit is associated with the Sudan's farmers not having the means toimplement modern farming methods. Farmers rely solely on rain fedcrops, and are, therefore, at a great disadvantage during times ofdrought. In addition to the lack of mod…ern methods, the are area isoften overrun by strife and warfare that creates a displaced peoplewho have no means of work or support, thus increasing povertylevels.

Sudan is in a religious civil war. Half of the country are Muslim and half are christian. They've been in a brutle war with one another for quite some time. No one in the world is doing much to stop this crisis. thousands of people are dying daily and the world is doing nothing to help. I think with… small help from the top countries in the world this manslaughter could easily be stopped and hundreds of thousands of lives just may be saved. (MORE)

The Darfur Conflict   is an ongoing guerrilla conflict or civil war centered on the Darfur region of Sudan . It began in February 2003 when the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army (SLM/A) and Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) groups in Darfur took up arm…s, accusing the Sudanese government of oppressing or committing genocide against non- arab Sudanese in favor of Sudanese Arabs . One side of the conflict is composed mainly of the official Sudanese military and police, and the Janjaweed , a Sudanese militia group recruited mostly from the Arab Abbala tribes of the northern Rizeigat region in Sudan; these tribes are mainly camel-herding nomads . The other combatants are made up of rebel groups, notably the SLM/A and the JEM, recruited primarily from the non-Arab Muslim Fur , Zaghawa , and Masalit ethnic groups. Although the Sudanese government publicly denies that it supports the Janjaweed, it has been providing financial assistance and weapons to the militia and has been organizing joint attacks targeting civilians.   There are various estimates on the number of human casualties , ranging from under twenty thousand to several hundred thousand dead, from either direct combat or starvation and disease inflicted by the conflict. There have also been mass displacements and coercive migrations, forcing millions into refugee camps or over the border and creating a large humanitarian crisis . The Sudanese government and the JEM signed a ceasefire agreement in February, 2010, with a tentative agreement to pursue further peace. The JEM has the most to gain from the talks, and could see semi-autonomy much like South Sudan.  However, talks have been disrupted by accusations that the Sudanese army launched raids and air strikes against a village, violating the February agreement. The JEM, the largest rebel group in Darfur, has said they will boycott further negotiations.  In Darfur, over 5 million people have been affected by the genocide (MORE)

Sudan's main resources are petroleum and oil you can find this in a rular old history book.
Sudan , Africa 's largest country, has endured civil war for all but 10 years since it achieved independence in 1956, after nearly 80 years of British rule. One of the world's poorest, most backward countries, Sudan sits on a sea of oil that cannot be exploited due to the continuing conflict. Despi…te its vast size, Sudan is largely a forgotten land torn by a complex struggle that stems from its colonial experience, its ethnic and religious divisions and from the self-interests that take precedence over progress. Historically, Sudan has been viewed as a nation divided between north and south. The North is more developed and more prosperous, is influenced by Egypt and is predominately Muslim. The South is home to untapped natural resources, Christian and animist beliefs, poverty and a resilient rebel movement. . During most of the 1800s, Sudan was controlled by the Turko-Egyptian (Ottoman Empire) and developed a substantial slave trade. In 1881, Muhammed Ahmad el Mahdi, (the Rightly Guided One) led a rebellion of northern tribes, driving the Egyptians from Sudan. In 1896, the British and Egyptian allies invaded and defeated the Mahdist forces in 1898 at the battle of Omdurman. The Anglo-Egyptian allies created a so-called "condominium" administration in the capital Khartoum and focused their attention on developing agriculture in the North. The North was predominately Muslim and more similar to Egypt than the traditionally African South. The British exploited ethnic and religious differences as a means to maintain control, as they had in many other colonies. The South of Sudan was declared a "closed area" and was isolated in almost all respects. After World War II, Britain prepared to abandon its colony, but wanted to prevent Egypt from gaining total control. To counterbalance Egypt's influence in the North, Britain sought to include Southerners in a federated government and opened the closed areas. Sudan gained its independence in 1956. As usual, the stage was set for violent conflict and factions fought for control over a weak and ineffectual government in Khartoum. In 1958 General Abboud seized power, established military rule and pursued an agenda of Arabization. He was quickly confronted by the Anya Nya rebels and the allied Sudan African National Union (SANU). Abboud was deposed in 1964 as civil war escalated. In 1969 Col. Mohammed Jaa'far Nimeiri seized power and declared an Islamic state, its policies based on Shar'ia, or Islamic law. He negotiated the Addis Abba Accord, which brought a ceasefire and limited autonomy for the South. After the government reneged on portions of the agreement, a new rebel force emerged in the South. With foreign support, Dr. John Garang led the Sudan people's Liberation Army and Movement (SPLA/M) as it took control over substantial areas in southern Sudan. In Khartoum, other dissident factions overthrew Nimieiri in 1985. Government instability continued until 1989 when General el-Bashir and the National Islamic Front gained control. El-Bashir declared a holy jihad and mounted increasingly successful counter attacks against the SPLA. Under pressure, SPLA broke into two factions: SPLA-Mainstream (led by Garang) and SPLA-United led by Dr. Rick Mashar). SPLA-United has suffered from infighting but remains a source of friction and influence in isolated areas. SPLA-Mainstream emerged as the more powerful of the rebel factions established an area of influence in the Upper Nile and Southern Kordofan region. In northeastern Sudan another rebel group, the Sudan Allied Forces, are waging their own battles against the Khartoum government in the Darfur provinces. Given Khartoum's limited resources and capabilities much of Sudan is essentially without any form of government. Sudan's civil war is being fought essentially without rules. All of the factions, government or guerrilla, have committed atrocities, without concern for human rights, or condemnation and sanctions from an international community that isn't watching. The death toll is unknown and humanitarian organizations estimate refugees numbers as high as 4 million, of which as many as 2 million have died while in flight. Ironically, much of the conflict is a battle for control of resources in the South, even though no one seems capable of developing the resources. It's estimated that Sudan oil reserves may be as much as 200 billion barrels. Until Sudan can develop a more diverse economic base, its people rely on the country's fragile agricultural base, prone to drought and resulting famines. Extensive efforts to produce food are devastating the land. Between war and famine unknown millions of people have been displaced and forced to migrate to other regions and neighboring states. In 1999, an international consortium built an oil pipeline from the Muglad basin to the Red Sea. Rebels immediately started a bombing campaign targeting the pipeline. Meanwhile, the Khartoum government is plagued by factional power struggles among the various Muslim groups, while there is essentially no political participation from the rebel-held Southern territories. Sudan shares borders with Egypt, Libya, Chad, the Central African Republic, Zaire, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Eritrea. Virtually all of these states have their own political problems, continuing conflicts and diverse interests. Given the size of Sudan and absence of security measures, the region has become a base or transit point for assorted guerrillas and terrorists. Amid this cauldron of dissent, Islamist fundamentalists have tried to make headway. Osama bin Laden set up operations in Sudan before being expelled and relocating al-Qaeda to Afghanistan.. On the tenth anniversary of the Rwanda genocide that claimed an estimated 800,000 lives, UN Secretary General expressed growing international concern about the conflict in the western Darfur region of Sudan. Civil war in Sudan's western provinces has driven an estimated 100,000 black African civilians to sseek refuge in neighboring Chad to escape reported attacks from Arab militias affiliated with the Khartoum government. The Sudanese government has refused access to the region by aid groups and independent observers, hence information is based on reports from refugees arriving in Chad.. (MORE)
Countries that border Sudan are Egypt, Chad , Libya , Central African Republic, Eritrea , Ethiopia , Uganda, Kenya and the democratic republic of Congo.
