  • I have two questions to ask of the humanitarian crisis in Sudan. One, which country benefits the most from either the arms or the oil trade in Sudan? Two, which country is the largest supplier of food and emergency aid to the relief camps in southern Sudan and northern Kenya?
    Funnily enough, in both cases it is the USA. Is it policy oversight or plain profiteering in the face of human misery?
    Yours etc.,
