Sudan's fragile peace

The Sudan is officially at peace with its southern sector. The question is, how long will it last? There is a referendum set to occur in six years on whether the southern oil rich sector wants independence. There is some question over the rights to the Ilemi Triangle and if a deal was reached between long time rebel and now the second in command John Garang made a deal with Kenya over the same territory. And of course, the US, in the person of Secratary Rice, is not sure if we want to send an Ambassador there for the first time in nearly ten years. As if this weren't enough, the southern governors and administrators, as part of the new peace deal, were removed en-masse and many were replaced with Garang's military cronies.
