Is Sudan heading towards a new civil war?

Don't be fooled by tenuous truces. Nearly two weeks on in Sudan, with no clear winner in sight, the personal power play between rival generals shows all the signs that it could spiral into all-out civil war. Residents are desperately trying to leave the capital Khartoum. Tens of thousands have also fled the Darfur region for neighbouring Chad, as armed factions choose sides while local rivalries and banditry flare up. How to stop the spiral? Who to stop it?
