After a Sudanese attack on the border town of Idre, the central African republic of Chad has declared itself to be in a 'state of war' with its eastern neighbour.
This is some American guy called Chad whose picture turned up on a google image search. He has nothing to do with the central African republic. He is not at war with Sudan. He is, however, at war with Burkina Faso.
This is a hanging chad. Could hanging chads have had something to do with President Blaise Campaore of Burkina Faso sweeping to a third presidential term in November, with 80% of the vote? Hardly. Or that's what he says anyway. Chad (Chad no. 2) might have something to say about that.
