Dar Fur: The Bowl Spills Over - Coup d'Etat Manqué in Tchad
Some time back in commenting on the Dar Fur situation in The Soudan, I touched on potential spillover in a somewhat incoherent manner in Dar Fur spillovers: Tchad and a State of War.
Now it would appear that things have indeed spilled over although it is hard to say.

hard to say indeed. from the scant information i've been able to find on the all-knowing internet, it appears, on the surface at least, that this isn't direct spillover nor is it backed by Soudan. i remain suspicious, however.
i bet the boys over at Exxon and Chevron are a tad bit concerned about their pipeline, what with the rebels, government forces, and French jets blowing things up willy nilly.
have you seen any indication of relative force strengths? France's deployment is well known but aside from reports of how many tanks surround the President's palace, i haven't been able to find much else.
