Sudan's Oil
Jamais Cascio, 17 Aug 04

Green Car Congress, linking to Lebanon's Daily Star, gives us some little-known backstory on the current crisis in Sudan, and why we should expect that unfortunate nation to continue to pop up in headlines: China now gets six percent of its oil from Sudan, and this percentage is expected to rise. Other major players in the Sudanese oil game include India and Malaysia. China's increasing hunger for oil has far greater implications than simply pushing up gas prices. As the Daily Star puts it: "The Darfur affair is giving China its first close-up experience of a Middle East crisis. How it will react if the crisis deepens remains to be seen."
