JUBA, Sudan – Northern Sudanese troops appeared to have seized the contested town of Abyei on Saturday night, a U.N. spokeswoman said, increasing fears of conflict as the country's south prepares to become the world's newest country.



U.N. officials have seen 15 tanks belonging to the northern army in parts of the town, where earlier mortars slammed against a United Nations base, Hua Jiang said. One of those mortar rounds exploded, but there were no casualties among U.N. personnel, she said.


Apparently tanks, mortars and airstrikes have been launched by Northern Sudan against the contested area.

But, its just not the North thats attacking.


On Saturday, the United States condemned the offensive near Abyei.



While the U.S. said it deplored Thursday's attack by southern forces on a U.N. convoy, it called the north's response "disproportionate and irresponsible."


My opinion - Pull out the UN troops and let them fight it out.

Agreed, UN troops are only used to oppress and kill the indigenous people of a land.
This is why I would have no problem popping a blue helmet.
They destroy alot and I cannot think of anything that they have helped.
I wish the US would pull out of the UN, but we know that won't happen for a bit.

That would be the logical thing to do,

and we all know 'Logic' and 'Government' are never hand in hand
