Keeping those priorities straight

The prolonged civil-war in Sudan has killed tens of thousands and been the source of surely valid claims of genocide.

Nevertheless, both sides have reached a consensus -- oh not that they'll stop killing each other, that's clearly too much to ask for -- rather, one that Dick Cheney could love with all his donated heart.
Sudan and South Sudan have agreed to consider setting up a joint force to protect vital oilfields during the ongoing crisis in the South, Sudan's foreign minister has said.
Well thank goodness they are considering that as a start, I mean at least they can still shoot at each other in so many other places than oil-fields. Like schools and hospitals and other lesser places.

Our former vice-president would be much happier if it was Shell or Exxon rather than China National Petroleum.

Where is Mr. Prince these days?Maybe Academi(Blackwater)is available for hire to Chinese National Petroleum to police the Sudan oil fields.
