The Comprehensive Peace Agreement — which ended the north-south war
but did nothing to stop the conflict to the west in Darfur — was among
the Bush administration’s few major foreign-policy successes. Now it’s
coming undone, and the collapse is beginning in Abyei, a hot little
village built up into a town by oil companies. The population grew to
30,000 from 5,000 as its residents returned after two decades of war.
Around a buzzing market of tin-roofed lean-tos and U.N. food
warehouses, people were building huts and hanging up tarps. But on the
main road, the armies of north and south were mobilizing T-72 tanks
and amassing more soldiers.
