A Partial Peace Reaches Sudan

From the Washington Post:
The Sudanese government and rebels in the southern part of the country signed the final chapters of a peace deal Friday, clearing the way for a comprehensive accord ending Africa's longest-running civil war.
This is obviously a positive development, and while it doesn't end the crisis in Darfur, it provides a outline for such an agreement there. With 70,000 people dead in Darfur as a result of the fighting, peace there is sorely needed.
The United States has put strong diplomatic pressure on Sudan to make peace in the south, so that it can focus on ending the separate crisis in Darfur.
Where ever there is conflict there are the evil Americans pushing for peace.
