Sudan has been independent for 54 years, and has spent 38 of those years fighting a civil war that's left more than 2 million dead. A peace deal in 2005 stopped the fighting, and guaranteed south Sudan a vote for self-determination in January 2011. But as that vote nears, the potential for renewed fighting looms. Is a weak and fractured south Sudan ready to stand on its own?
