If It Sounds Too Good To Be True…

You may remember that President Bashir garnered waves of positive headlines first by going to Rome and telling the Pope that his forces would implement a ceasefire in Darfur once peace talks in Libya began. Once a week, for the next six weeks his officials parroted the anouncement. Then the doomed peace talks themselves began and they said it all over again.

Now reports are starting to filter out of West Darfur that Sudanese planes have been in action, bombing a water hole in the Jebel Moon region as they sought out rebels from the Sudan Liberation Army Free Will faction and the Justice and Equality Movement. This was October 27. The day the talks began. No civilians are reported injured. But I’m not sure that’s the point.
