It has become clear that a Special Envoy is needed for Sudan.
There are several factors that currently indicate this. They Include:
1.) The Recent Spike in the Violence in Darfur
2.) The Fear that the CPA (Comprehensive Peace Accord or the North-South
Peace Treaty) could soon collapse. The Alliance between JEM and the KAD can be seen as hedging bets.
3.) The Upcoming Elections in Southern Sudan which could vote for Independence.
At this time GOSS is actively involved with the Efforts to rein in the LRA Elements terrorizing both Sudan and the Democratic
Republic of the Congo. It should be duly noted that the Tanks on board the MV Faina seized last fall off the Coast
of Somalia were destined for GOSS.
4.) The Impact that the Situation in Sudan has on the Peace Process in the
Central African Republic and the Insurgency in Chad.
Former Envoy John Danforth who helped negotiate the CPA has called for an
Envoy to be sent by the Obama Administration. Save Darfur Now! has called for one as well. And so now let me add my voice
to this choir. A Special Envoy is needed for Sudan Mr. President.
