    LOL yes oil, that's what they'll fight over.

    They been killing each other over piddly inter-tribal squabbles long before oil was ever heard of. Since earliest recorded history.

    No reason to expect anything different.

    You would characterize the genocide there in the last decade or so as a "piddly squabble"?

    It's what they've been doing, to deny that is ridiculous, make of it what you will.

    A trifle compared to what Euros have been doing to each other.

    On a per capita basis they've done wonders to each other in terms of warfare and violence, and with nothing to show for it in terms of social advancement.

    Go live there and get back to us on how awful Euros are by comparison.

    Here's a 2006 photo of some Sudanese celebrating something or other.

    In other news, skinheads are hunting down indigenous people (American Indians) in Nevada. There has been at least one attack, and I think more this year already. I have heard that the skins are connected to Nevada law enforcement and use this fact to intimidate their victims.

    http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2011/06/native-family-attacked-by-skinheads/

    Lisa said Jacob Cassell taunted the family as the sirens approached, telling them, “You hear those cops coming? They’re not going to help you. My daddy is a cop in this town, and nothing is going to happen to me. You F* N* are going to jail.”

    When Lyon County Sheriff’s officers arrived, they took statements and began filling out police reports with Cassell and his friends, but they did not take statements from any of the victims. When Lisa asked why they were not being questioned for a statement, no one responded. “They ignored us,” she said, before she suffered a seizure and required medical attention.

    wow "several attacks' holy moly stop the presses

    now look at the statistics of black on white attacks and cry me a river

    this just happened, I think the 7 dead victims more than make up for the "seveal attacks" you mention.
