Foreign Affairs published on 8 October 2013 a letter from Jerome Tubiana, Sudan analyst at the International Crisis Group titled "Sudan and South Sudan Inch Toward War." While the letter contains useful on the ground coverage of the situation along the Sudan-South Sudan border, the title of the letter is unfortunate. It implies that South Sudan and Sudan are edging toward another war. Localized border conflict continues to be a problem and could worsen, but neither Sudan nor South Sudan is interested in pursuing another devastating war.
