Wikileaks: Sudanese launchpad for Egyptian attack on Ethiopian dam

(Sept 03, 2012 (LONDON))--Egyptian authorities fearful of a monopoly on Nile waters received agreement from Khartoum to build an airbase in Sudan, to launch attacks on Ethiopian damming facilities, claims the anonymous media outlet; Wikileaks.

Wikileaks has leaked files allegedly from the Texas-based global intelligence company, Stratfor, which quote an anonymous “high-level Egyptian source,” claiming the Egyptian ambassador to Lebanon said in 2010 his nation would do anything to prevent the secession of South Sudan because of the political implications it will have for Egypt’s access to the Nile.

The Nile is vital in providing fresh water to the people and agricultural projects of Egypt. Also in the Nile Basin and reliant on its waters are Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and Burundi. Read more from Sudan Tribune »

No water for Egypt and Sudan; do not be afraid of their idle threats, they have enough fossil fuel they either drink it or exchange for water, ounce for ounce. If you have no right over their fossil fuel they have no right over your water.
Worst comes to worst show them the letter you have from their prophet for giving him refuge when he was running away from his enemy chase that no Muslim country will ever attack you. It will put them to shame.
