  Second Sudanese Civil War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The war is usually characterized as a fight between the southern, non-Arab populations against the northern, Arab-dominated government.
During this period, the civil war intensified in lethality and the economy continued to deteriorate.
The agreement reached during this war in 2002 is also one of the causes of the Darfur conflict.

 THE CIVIL WAR IN SUDAN AND THE TRADING MECHANISMS OF
Whereas the Sudanese civil war in the past used to be a ‘low budget war fought by ragtag armies’, - the war in recent years has developed into ‘modern counter-insurgency warfare between asymmetric parties where the population sits on the loosing side’.
Thus, since 1983, the year when the civil war between the country’s Northern-based government and rebel forces representing the aspirations of the people in the South, was last resumed, almost 2 million people are believed to have been killed.
The example of the civil war in Sudan is, then, of general significance for the worldwide debate on globalisation.

Others all but automatically support wars out of a sense of patriotism which leads to an attitude of "my country, right or wrong." Americans saw this in much of the early support for the war in Vietnam or the remarkable proliferation of displayed flags in the aftermath of September 11.
New wars, she explains, are not massive conflicts between states trying to inflict the most damage, but rather they are a mixture of war, organized crime, and large-scale human rights violations.
These new wars, she argues, are fought for particularistic political goals and employ tactics of terror and destabilization that are outlawed by the traditional rules of modern warfare.

The war was characterized by extreme brutality, including the use of chemical weapons, by both countries, and especially tabun, by Iraq.

 War and Slavery in Sudan | Jok, Jok Madut
Exposes the fact that slavery remains widespread in Sudan and is not grounded in the current civil war but on old prejudices between the Muslim north and the Christian south.
As Jok Madut Jok argues, the present day is one such time, as the Sudanese civil war that resumed in 1983 rages on between the Arab north and the fl south.
Jok emphasizes that the contemporary practice of slavery in Sudan is not the result of two decades of civil war, as conventional wisdom in the media would have one believe.

 USAID: Sudan FY 2002 Congressional Budget Justification
Attempts to negotiate an end to the civil war between the North and the South of Sudan are hindered by the fact that the Government of Sudan (GOS) is known both for the human rights violations inflicted on its own populations and for its support for international terrorism.
Conclusion of the civil war and an end to their human rights violations and support for terrorism would be significant contributions to international stability in this important but volatile part of the world.
In the absence of an end to the Sudanese civil war, gross human rights violations and support of terrorism, the USG continues to provide humanitarian assistance to war-affected populations throughout Sudan.

The intervention in Sudan by foreign powers, especially the United States, and by civil groups with partisan religious and political motivations, has exacerbated and prolonged a tragic conflict by the deliberate and cynical manufacture of blatantly manufactured distortions, lies and hoaxes.
The new and significant moves towards a peaceful resolution of the Sudanese civil war (1), as outlined in the July 2002 Machakos peace protocol, must go hand in hand with a concerted attempt to cut away the dead hand of propaganda that has artificially prolonged the conflict.
Civil war has raged in Sudan off and on between the Sudanese government and rebels in southern Sudan since 1955.

 Case Study
The civil war in the Sudan is routinely characterized as a conflict between Muslims and Christians, Arabs and Africans, or North and South.
This new conflict is generally characterized simply as a continuation of the North/South ethno-religious conflict of the previous civil war, but it is actually quite different, in terms of who is leading the fight and what their goals are.
Thus, although this war continues to involve all of the issues that started the first civil war, it has continued because of issues of environment and resources which make settlement in the near future highly unlikely.

As was the case in the first phase of the civil war, the issue of the autonomy of the South has remained the central driving force behind the liberation movements.
This is the first time in the history of the Sudanese civil war that the liberation movements have formally entered into a marriage of convenience with the northern parties to oppose the leadership in Khartoum.
The eleven years' truce (1972-1983), the longest in the history of the civil war, prevailed because of the willingness of the parties to observe the provisions of the Accord.

 War at its "deadliest phase", ICG warns   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-23)
The Sudanese conflict began in 1983, when the Sudanese government, led at the time by former President Ja'far Numayri, imposed Islamic shari'ah law on the entire country, including the mostly Christian and animist south.
It went on to say that the divergent positions held by the warring parties were too entrenched to be reconciled through conventional facilitation alone.
ICG was therefore urging the regional players, and key players from the international community with influence on both sides to use their leverage to compel both parties to move towards peace.

 Stop Training Iraqis for Civil War - by Ivan Eland
A rapid U.S. withdrawal and decentralization of Iraqi governance is the last hope to avoid a full-fledged civil war, because the three groups don't want to live together and are frightened that a strong central government could be used to oppress the group or groups that don't control it.
A decentralization of government and sharing of oil revenues was part of the agreement that ended the Sudanese civil war, which killed millions of people.
To prevent the tragedy of a full-blown civil war, the U.S. must first quit deepening the hole it is in and then use its climb out to fill back in the dirt for Iraq's future.

It is a matter of record that it is SPLA rebels who continue to prolong the Sudanese civil war despite considerable international pressure on them to accept a ceasefire and enter into peaceful negotiations.
If they were concerned about cause and effect, or at the very least the sort of balance and objectivity expected of journalists they might have drawn the link between the release of millions of dollars of American assistance to the SPLA and the acquisition and use of a new weapons system by the rebel movement.
