Sudan (not the Christianised South Sudan) have been battered into submission by Arab nations who want to dominate their politics to cut off USA and Europe who want bases in East Africa. The West is playing the dictator card there and so Sudan is afraid of Western bombings AND Arab invasion. They've been spreading the Wahabbi doctrine there and its a sad state of affairs. I have a Sudanese friend and she considers herself as a relative of Somalis but the Arabs took their language over the centuries and she only speaks Arabic. Sudan should be a part of the Union but only Ethiopia stands in the way of unity because they are the only Christian presence (despite having a majority Muslim population). Ethiopia have been getting so much aid from the West to keep this going. They've also put sanctions on Eritrea who were then forced to introduce national service to build their country creating a refugee crisis of workshy cunts. The Horn is a mess because of this cat and mouse game between Western Christianity and Arab Islam. We should all go back to our ancient religions but they'll come back with renewed colonial tactics to keep the story of Muslims and Christianity going so they both can steal all our shit.
