Ancient Lake To Bring Peace To Darfur

Scientists have discovered the underground remnants of an ancient lake in Sudan's arid Darfur region, offering hope of tapping a precious resource and easing water scarcity, which experts say is the root of much of the unrest in the region.

The researchers hope to drill at least 1,000 wells in the dusty territory and pump the long-hidden water to ease tensions among communities living there — and strengthen efforts to restore peace in Darfur.

I think most people would sure like to see peace brought to Darfur. The problem is I don't really think the government wants to see much peace in Darfur. Yes we all know watter is a problem, as well as the most valuable resource. But when the bandits or the army sent by the government shoots the people fleeing the villages then dumps the bodies in the wells to poison them, how much good will drilling new wells in an ancient lake do?
