Underground Lake Might End Darfur's Conflict

 

Scientists discovered a huge (30,750 km2) underground lake in the Darfur region which they believe might help bring an end to the conflict in the arid region.

According to analysts, the Arab nomads & black African farmers’ conflict is mainly due to scarce resources. Last month, the UNep urged the addressing of environmental damage to resolve Darfur’s conflict & explained how deserts stretched & forests shrank.

Scientist used radars & satellite images to find the underground lake; they hope the Sudanese government will approve the drilling of 1,000 wells to make use of it. A similar discovery in Egypt has helped the country irrigate 150,000 acres of farmland.

  This could...  
 
be positive or negative for the region, a major power struggle may insue on who has the rights to said water, and a government may try to sell it to the poor. But it may bring them together, who knows, its a positive either way

  Well, it all due to scarce resources  
 
But as several people said, this lake is just going to be something else to commit genocide over.

  I don't want to sound pessimistic  
 
although water is an important factor, i think there are many more reasons behind the current situation. The conflict has been going on for decades yet it only became this inflamed the moment the war between the north (government) and the south (rebels) stopped.

  I think war  
 
Has become a habit to most countries now, they always have to have something to fight for, sorry but execution is called for here a few of those and maybe it will take the fun out of it.
And the same in UK too, when people know their necks are on the line maybe, just maybe they will stop.

I was going to say the same thing. Water isn't a solution to the problem, a change in mindset is.

"There is enough water within these aquifers to bring peace in Darfur..."

But is there enough intelligence? There surly isn't in the western world.

  @questioning  
 
Its nothing to do with intelligence... just education. By stating 'intelligence' you are propagating the stereotype of the african people as genetic retards.

  @kuhl  
 
Questioning didn't state that africans are mentally deficient. His/her comments clearly expressed that africans are no better at "intelligent" conflict resolution that westerners. An opinion I share.
