SSDF militia says USA planning to set up military base in S. Sudan

Report from Khartoum Feb 26, 2006 via Sudan Tribune claims the Southern Sudan Defence Force (SSDF) has warned the government of Southern Sudan of dire consequences, if it agrees to a plan by the USA to set up a military base in the region to protect the oil fields.
The official spokesman for the SSDF, Brig Mohamed chol al-Ahmar said if the government of Southern Sudan agrees to establish a US military base in the region, then it will be the biggest violation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.

Al-Ahmar said "the agreement did not contain anything to the effect that a foreign military base should be established in the country to protect the oil fields." The US had recently declared its keenness to establish a military base in the south.
