Sudan: Where Does the Sudan People’s Liberation Army-North Get Its Weapons? | allAfrica
By Eric Reeves
We have heard for many months now accusations from the Obama administration, the UN, the African Union, and other international actors that there is somehow an equivalent responsibility on the part of Juba and Khartoum for the arming of military “proxies”: Khartoum arming, supplying, and providing sanctuary to brutal renegade militia forces in the South; Juba supplying (so it is claimed) substantial aid to the Sudan People’s Liberation Army-North, particularly to the forces of Abdel Aziz al-Hilu in the Nuba Mountains. What has long been striking about this version of “moral equivalence” is the dramatic disparity in the evidence available Notably Khartoum, which is most insistent in claiming that Juba is assisting the SPLA-North, has provided no evidence of any kind.
