South Sudan's warring leaders have agreed another deal aimed at ending six months of civil war but even if this one holds, analysts expect violence to get worse before the situation can improve.After several failed deals, many are skeptical that either President Salva Kiir or his arch-rival Riek Machar really want a negotiated end to the conflict, and instead believe a military victory is still possible.Even if negotiations progress, some fear it will create further violence, as leaders jostle for power in a proposed transitional government for which the enemies agreed a 60-day deadline to settle.Forming a transitional government would require enemies responsible for what the U.N. fears could be crimes against humanity – including massacres and mass rape – to now share power.
