All parties probably lack the financial resources and international sponsorship needed to sustain a prolonged military campaign. Yet the potential for internecine chaos remains, and any serious approach toward stabilizing Sudan will have to look beyond North-South hostilities.  The fact that the U.S. seems oblivious to these possibilities is yet another indication of how poorly conceived its diplomacy – and foreign policy – is.

Those who missed getting a picture of Clooney this time will probably get another chance in the near future. But until then, hopefully National Security Advisor Tom Donilon is taking notes.
