Failed International Effort to Bring Democracy to Sudan

 The New York Times published on 3 May 2023 an article titled "How U.S. Efforts to Guide Sudan to Democracy Ended in War" by Edward Wong, Michael Crowley, and Declan Walsh.  

The article argues that the United States put too much confidence in Sudan's contending generals, Armed Forces leader Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and Rapid Support Forces head, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, to restore democracy in the country.  The result was a power struggle and outbreak of conflict between them.
