Chad: May 16, 2001


  The MDJT rebels in the north say the upcoming elections will be rigged and that they will continue their fight against the "dictator Deby." The president dismisses the rebels as "25 disgruntled former army officers." Both sides are right, but it's also a tribal war, with the northerners upset that the southerners (especially Deby's Zaghawa tribe.) There's also the religious angle; the north is Moslem, the south is Christian. And it's also a stalemate.
