Public anger is reaching critical levels and the ruling dictatorial NCP is going through a period of extreme paranoia. This is the reason they were so brutal against the protesters. There’s a very noticeable change in the overall mood of Sudanese people. It has begun. It seems like we’ve finally had enough. The NCP is on guard all the time. They’re facing intense external and internal pressure. Everyone is going through a “pressure cooker” period and that’s good. The majority of the Sudanese people silently support UN troops even though some of them suspect sinister American intensions. The reason is simple. They now hate the NCP much more than they hate America. Others remain undecided and want to avoid another Iraq. I could qualify as one of those since I would like to see a truly humanitarian solution to the problem in Darfur by supporting AMIS instead of UN troops. That could probably never happen though.
In light of those latest developments, I would like to face the reality and I would also like to convince myself of a critical point. Darfur is not a disease. It is merely the symptom amongst many symptoms of a much bigger disease, mainly the ruling NCP and tribalism (which the NCP continues to promote and encourage by the way).
Even if Darfur is solved in a humanitarian way, it would only be curing the symptom. The disease would still be alive and as a consequence so will corruption and oppression. Who knows? Maybe in a few years time we’ll even witness another Darfur unfolding. Hence the long term solution is simply getting rid of the ruling NCP. The only way to truly advance forward is through revolution and simply put, revolution means blood and sacrifice. There is no peacefull revolution. All revolutions are bloody. We need to accept that fact and decide if we really want one or not.
Freedom and justice will never be handed to us. No it won’t and especially by the NCP it won’t. Handing that will mean the collapse of the NCP and they’ll never allow that to happen to them. They’re at the point of no return. A long list of people are now wanted for war crimes. It’s those people who have too much to lose and will never risk rotting in jail. The more important point to take notice of is that the majority of the Sudanese people on the contrary have totally and absolutely nothing to lose.
Mark my word people, we’re moving into a new phase in Sudanese history. I might be reluctant to agree to a bloody revolution since I’m afraid I do have somethings to lose. Others increasingly don’t. Ladies and gentlemen, it has just begun!
