Sudan is Africa’s largest country, roughly the size of Western Europe. It is geo-strategically significant, especially to an imperial US. Thanks to its location, it is the backdoor to the Middle East. Thanks to its size, it has the potential to be a dominant power in the African continent, and thanks to its oil, it has what advanced capitalist economies crave the most. Darfur, roughly the size of France, is the westernmost province of Sudan. “It was long a place of Sudanic states, with Daju and Tunjur kingdoms preceding that of Darfur (founded circa 1630), where a small sultanate of Masalit emerged in the west in the 19th century” (Reyna 2010).
