The African nation of Sudan is in the news as a struggle between warring generals saw violence on the streets of Khartoum. The conflict has left hundreds dead, and a number of countries have evacuated their embassies during a brief ceasefire. While the feuding factions of the military government are receiving all the attention, a number of smaller voices are suggesting that this is as much a proxy war between the US and Russia as it is an internal Sudanese struggle. At the very least, the manipulation (not to mention, looting) of African nations by foreign powers does as much harm as good.
