    The idiots in South Sudan should not ignore the terrorist maneuvers in Sudan. This has already created security dilemma or call it insecurity to those countries that do not have these military gadgets in the region! South Sudan should order 30 F 16 fighters and others from anywhere in the world.

      Your comments show that you’re very uneducated. 30 f16 fighter jets would cost well over a billion bucks, this kinda budget might probably be what kirr dreams about at night, but wakes up to find that he can barely pay half his army’s salaries. You barely have running water or power you think you can maintain leave 30 just 10 without them rusting away in an airport with no hangers or personnel? Ed

      Education is the key to your problems stop worrying about sudan. Instead you could order 30 trackors and 30 harvesters to boost your production and feed your people. Feed your people then you’ll have less sick people and less sick people means more production. It’s a cycle. Go study or go plow some land.
