Not to undermine the seriousness of the entire shitshow that’s unfolding minute by minute in the north, but a line struck me from a recent (very serious, very sad) article (that you should read in seriousness and ignore the part I’m about to talk about):

Really… resort town? Never having been to Manga, I can nearly assure you that it is not in fact a “resort town” such that one would normally think of. Unless I’m mistaken and it really is just a lush land next to the Nile and full of armed SPLA pool boys and daiquiris.
I’m sure it’s lovely, but probably more like this:
So there’s that.
