Chad in 'state of war' with Sudan


Chad says it is in "a state of war" with neighbour Sudan over the security crisis in the east of the country.


It accuses Sudan of being the "common enemy of the nation" after a Chadian rebel attack on a town last week.


In a statement, the government calls on Chadians to mobilise themselves against Sudanese aggression.


Relations between the two states have deteriorated since Chad accused Sudan of being behind Sunday's attack on Adre, which left about 100 people dead.

The strong language in the statement will alarm observers who have already warned that tensions along the Chad-Sudan border are nearing breaking point.


'Patriotic front'
In the aftermath of Sunday's attack, Chad accused Sudan of being directly involved in helping to support the Chadian rebels.





But the statement issued by Chad's government on Friday afternoon is the most aggressive yet.


It claims that not only was Sudan behind the attack on Adre, but it also accuses Sudanese militia of making daily incursions into Chad, stealing cattle, killing innocent people and burning villages on the Chadian border.
"Chad is today in a state of war with Sudan," the statement says.
It asks Chadians to form a patriotic front against what it calls "the common enemy of the nation".


The statement thanks the international community for its support so far, but says condemnations of the recent violence in Adre do not go far enough.


It appeals to the international community, including the African Union, to specifically condemn what it alleges is Sudan's involvement in the attack on Adre.

Since the UN has done nothing of substance to stop the slaughter of Christians by Muslim militias since 1954 (about 2 million dead over that time period), maybe the Chadanians will put a stop to it. I doubt it, but one could hope.

Hi,

This Civil war In sudan needs to be stopped ...... Chad is providing shelter to approximately 213,000 refugees of Sudans Darfur crisis .......... war with Sudan could Worsen the Situation for those Refugees as well .

And i don't think Chad which has a Millitary less than 26,000 Solders will be able to handle some
100,000 Sudan Peoples Armed Forces , supported by a small air force and navy plus Irregular tribal and militias

Only thing on Chad's Side is that They have a very Good relations with USA and France ........... and the US Department of State Website Describes them as a Ally in War against terror .

Simply answer. Arm the Christians that are being killed by the Muslim militias. When the Muslims Militia's victims suddenly fight back and gives those scumbags a taste of their own medicine. The fighting will stop.

A armed society is a polite society.

It's that simple.

It's not always about the numbers, after all Chad did take over Lybia's Largest Airbase, and wipe out a pretty good size of its Air Force, all with only Toyota Pickups and small arms.

One word: RWANDA



The UN is the biggest joke ever pulled the people of the world. The bulk of their time is spent passing resolutions condeming Isreal for this or that, condeming the US for doing the work that was Mandated by the UN, and providing support for for "peaceful" orginazations such as the PLO, and people like Robert Mugabe. In their spare time, them orginize "Peacekeeping" missions that amout to either Armies standing around and watching the natives slaughter each other, or blowing off steam by raping the local population of children.

It hurts me to my very soul to say that when it comes to Africa, nobody really cares. And at some level, I don't blame them. Pretty much every nation in Africa has followed the same pattern:

1. Gain independence from a European power (or change from a white led government to a black).
2. A despot rises to power.
3. Treasury gets emptied out.
4. Wholesale killing.
5. No more food because the farmers are dead, or have had their land taken away.
6. The killing roadshow moves to neighboring countries.
7. Demands for aid are made to the UN.
8. If some Europeans gets killed (like Nuns), some enraged European Nation goes in to end the killing.
9. Back to #4.


Africa's situation is a direct result of "Wise old Europe". Africa's problems are a direct result of the UN.
