Transcript of Sudan

By: Corbin, Hunter, R.J, Elias Sudan Both Sudan and South SudanThere are fears that the conflicts in Sudan
can cause are "Compact" states
The shape has little affect on the conflict, as Sudan and South Sudan are conflicted due to religious differences and how to market an oil industry.
Before the two countries separated the shape did have a large effect, as the South part of Sudan was far from the Capitol so they could rebel against the north. Shape The Centripetal Forces:
North Sudan: This was the main country until Southern Sudan won their independence and the have the pipelines of the oil which is what Southern Sudan wants
The Centrifugal Forces
South Sudan: They wanted independence and since they found out about the oil fields the have been going to Northern Sudan trying to obtain it Forces Location The states involved in the conflict are classified as Multinational-state. Sudan has more than one nation in its borders(Sudan and South Sudan.)The international recognition of South Sudan will confer upon its governments legal sovereignty.Even now there are still internal ethic divides and disputes with Sudan over the oil resource and the territorial boundaries. Type of State - Many foreign countries are involved including the United States and the U.N., which they stopped the Second Sudan War in 2005.
- On December 22, 2012 South Sudan shot down a U.N. Helicopter.
- Also China was caught between North and South Sudan's when Chinese workers were attacked. Outside Influences Our Opinions RJ: I really think they need to work this conflict through or else it is going to ruin their countries (Sudan and South Sudan). So bottom line is that this conflict isnt going to be over for a while but eventually it will end since the U.S. and the UN is involved
Elias: I think that Sudan and South Sudan have to resolve this conflict before it leads to more problems that can cause severe effects.
Corbin: I think the Sudanese people are foolish for the conflict. The problem is they are too stubborn to actually attemt and compromise. There is no need to completely separate due to religion; They could become separate statesbut do so on good term. If the South Sudanese people chose to be Christian then there is no way the North can change their mind, but they can separate but still become allies and work together in the oil industry.
Hunter: I do agree with what my teammates have to say, but i would have to include that the distribution and use of oil can benefit a country with money, so i can see why these people are fighting for it, because both countries can use the oil to their advantage. But i'm sure they would be able to find some way to fix this oil problem so that both countries can benefit, without the violence and chaos.
