BOSTON - 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.

Biggie, you got to crawl before you walk, right?
I was under the impression that the nomadic herders were traveling so much because of scarce waters. With the 1000 wells, perhaps they will be able to navigate their intrusions more considerately. Again, I am asking alot, but I do hope those regional people are ready for a change. At least that is what I'm sending out there.
