Sudanese Oil Deal: Step One

    I suspect the money is the crucial part – the politics is largely window dressing. As long as the money is flowing both sides can finesse the politics. Both of these regimes are desperate for cash to pay off supporters and keep economic chaos at bay.

    South Sudan should cut a pipeline deal with Kenya, and ship out their oil that way. As long as they are dealing with the North, politics is going to be interfering with the business of making money.

    In the meantime, here is how we civilized people function: “The U.S. has said it won’t pay this because of sanctions against Sudan, so it is encouraging China and Arab countries to step in in its place.”
