Foreign Affairs Focus: Sudan With Nicholas Kristof
In an attempt to one-up Khartoum, the newly independent South Sudan has twisted its oil spigot closed. But a shuttered oil sector is just the beginning of Omar al-Bashir's problems: Juba sees him as weak, a new alliance of fighters in the east is plotting to overthrow him, and Sudan's economy is in tatters.
Managing Editor Jonathan Tepperman interviews New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on the instability and violence against Nubans in the Southern Kordofan region of Sudan, following the creation of the world's newest nation, South Sudan. They discuss military tactics the government is using to crush insurgencies; the implications of recent war crimes indictments over Darfur; and what diplomatic and humanitarian options the United States and UN have now.
