Bashir vows to “free” South Sudan’s people from SPLM


April 18, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – Sudan’s President Omer Al-Bashir escalated war rhetoric against South Sudan on Wednesday, saying that Khartoum’s goal is to rid southerners of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) in Juba.

Sudan and South Sudan have been fighting around the disputed border area of Heglig since it was occupied by the southern army last week amid growing fears that the recently-separated countries are heading for all-out war.

Addressing a mobilisation rally organised by the youth sector of his ruling National Congress Party (NCP) in Khartoum, Al-Bashir promised that the coming hours will bring “good news” from Sudanese forces fighting, who he said were on the outskirts of Heglig.

He accused South Sudan’s ruling party, the SPLM, of seeking to execute what he termed as the agendas of world powers to oust the government in Khartoum before threatening to do it the other way around.

“Either we end up occupying Juba or you end up occupying Khartoum but the boundaries of the old Sudan can no longer fit us together, only one of us has to remain standing” Bashir said.

The Sudanese president said that liberating Heglig would be the first step towards achieving the main goal which, according to him, is to “completely annihilate” the SPLM, describing it as an insect that must be crushed.

He further pledged to liberate South Sudan’s people from the SPLM and correct in the process what he described as their “mistake” of helping the SPLM to rule in Juba.

“We have promised the south’s people to free them from the SPLM rule immediately and we bear a responsibility before the south’s citizens after we contributed to establishing the SPLM rule in the South” he said

Al-Bashir vowed that Sudanese forces will teach South Sudan a lesson in ’Jihad’ and patriotism.

He disclosed that he told the head of the African Union (AU) mediation team, Thabo Mbeki, not to get too happy after the accord signed last month in Addis Ababa because the south’s leaders are "agents" being played by world powers.

According to Bashir, the former South African president acknowledged that he was right in a phone conversation that took place after the Heglig events.

    Hahahahahah, bashier, your mouth is bigger than your brain. You call SPLM an insect to be crushed forgetting yourself a dead flesh walking. How can you liberated southern people when you killed 2million of them? Shame on you! ICC will get you soon, if you don’t shut up that big mouth you have.

    • 19 April 2012 05:39, by LL Reuben

      Look who is mouthing about, our daily fool doesn’t think he has a problem in his country now he’s talking about turning mountain upside down. Bashir maybe having a brain illness that blur his thinking otherwise his time is up.

        No No - he said he vows to FREE South Sudan’s people from the ’Insect’ Government of South Sudan.

        Ha Ha Ha

          Zulu - you & your grandiose, intoxicated brothers need a reality check. You can deafeat anyone or win this war. That is REALITY and FACT. You dont see any of the Northerners reply because we’ll just sit back watch you morons make fools of yourselves & dance around like idiots. We are confident - you will be ’trown’ out of Heglig - But i think Mr President that would be enough embarcment.

            Boy Darkangel
            Sorry buddy. We have destroyed that convoy may be 4 hrs ago if you did not hear. Prepare for this irony. Things are hot. the messyria have joined the SRA in the west and vowed to hold on to Nyama in southern darfur after the SAF withdrew. SPLA oye, SRA Oye, Down, down NCP

            How many weeks does it take to crash an insect? It looks like it has been more than a week already, where is the force that’s coming to crash the insect?

              “Either we end up occupying Juba or you end up occupying Khartoum but the boundaries of the old Sudan can no longer fit us together, only one of us has to remain standing” Bashir said.

              Well, we have heard all the talk now, when is the operation? It’s now time for the world to see if your action is going to match your words.

              • 19 April 2012 19:49, by Mi diit


                This is the real war liberation that will determine the official territory and borders of what is known as South Sudan as predicted by Ngundeng. We got our interior land through peaceful self determination vote. We will demarcate our borders with bullet liberation soon.

        • 19 April 2012 06:19, by LL Reuben


          Was that notion prophesied by your gay prophet mohommed? Well, let me tell you this, the South is very capble of swinging your rears back to the desert of the Suadis where you originated. If you have issues with that, then just wait and see who will be left breathing and who will be sent to meet imiginary virgins. God bless South Sudan.

          To Hell with Bashir
          Bashir is just baaking like Saddam Hussien and Gadhafi calling protesters rade and dogs, If we are insect, how is he who doesn’t have a child to hunt and kill insects. God Bless South Sudan because if you are abuse, denial acess to resources, murder, you are rightous in the kingdom of God. SPLA is There to protect the inch of South Sudan regardless of War planes and Jihadism

      • 19 April 2012 07:49, by Chol

        That’s very funny, Bashir couldn’t capture Heglig for more than a week and now he believed that the easiest thing he could do is to capture Juba and the entire South Sudan.

        We all know, the loud mouth don’t do or capture anything, just people to fight if you have them, we don’t thing you have any, just few people behind Bashir with red-bend around their heads for scare tactic show only.

      • 19 April 2012 08:37, by Diu J.Kuek

        All are nonsense either you will retake Heglig by force or will topple SPLM Government non of these will succeed so for your friend failure Former President Thabo Mbeki also will do nothing to harm our nation let them send his false reports to UN with his other dog so called Jean Ping I know very well is enemy of S. Sudan as in his remarked against the Independent of South Sudan we remembers.

    • 19 April 2012 05:50, by zulu

      victory is ours and you are behind the news. We have destroyed the convoy you sent to recapture Panthou and captured your base 25 miles in Sudan. In Raja we have capture 3 garrisons. In Upper Nile, the line doing well. In Darfur, SRA have captured a garrison. All are marching to liberate Khartoum from the NCP

    • 19 April 2012 06:21, by Makuei


      Is a liar - he have to free Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan from his government oppression before he talk about the South.

      Jihadists are always sent to hell by SPLA/SPLM - Juba.

        • 19 April 2012 07:29, by Lorolokin

    • 19 April 2012 08:28, by bior angeth

      Bashir, please think of peace! The war is in your hand and the peace is yous to decide. Do not kill the people of Sudan and South Sudan in vain. If you were somebody else, these two countries would have coexist peacefully. you will blame yourself later if it goes out of your control. Do not deceive yourself please! Victory is far away from you.

    • 19 April 2012 08:51, by emad

      I do not think Bashir’s mouth is bigger than Silvakir’s, foolish man.
      Our president is absolutely right and all people of Sudan behind him to achieve that goal which will be very soon.
      The people of the south should be liberated from those thugs and corrupt politicians led by the Sergeant Silvakir.
      We want to correct what we as northerners have done by letting the SPLM to rule the south .

      • 19 April 2012 22:50, by panom lualbil

        PEACE in south sudan with ppl like EMAD will not get any better. Big mouth should be correct term when apply to those failure individuls paid by OMAR BASHUT to disarm their fellows during spla struggling untill today. Or BASHIT who was caught stealing our oils damage it for being jealousy. But a fuck this mfucker came up with? Death is driving you cat!!

        • 19 April 2012 23:11, by panom lualbil

          Those big mouth are what OMAR BASHIR called INSECTS under this topic. OMAR knows who to curse bitterly amongst us and you too are kind of, better believe it. Your SATAN’s heart against dinka calling PRESIDENT big mouth beside vissionless riek machar won’t help you, fool. You and ur SSDA will one day join us.

      These guy is really baboon he should liberate Heglig first than think to hold liberate south Sudan. Who is insect? Not him? He know his days are numbers and he don’t want to dei alone.

    • 19 April 2012 16:00, by daniell

      It would be much more better for South and North Sudan to choose their ill descriptive language wisely in order to stop war escalating to the point they CANNOT mediate.21 years for nothings but accumulation of corpse, carcass and exploitation of beautiful Sudan. Hopefully they find a common ground no matter of their thin line differences.

    • 20 April 2012 02:47, by daniell

      The definition of the truth and ordinary are lost by Omar since he got into power. He cannot and will not recognise people of south Sudan are the legitimate citizens if he cut history short. Negotiation is essential if not; then War is war, you fight to liberate yourself and country people to live an ordinary life. Big thank to Spla and rest of the parties or I should say,well done to the entire S

    “Either we end up occupying Juba or you end up occupying Khartoum but the boundaries of the old Sudan can no longer fit us together, only one of us has to remain standing” Bashir said."

    I appreciated the way you put it. No one knows who will end up in what city. We will see what will be response from Juba, if it is now matter of ending up in Juba or Khartoum, then they will not wait.

  • 19 April 2012 05:55, by Daniel Buolmawei

    And by the way Juba needs to read between the lines. The war is declared upon us by Khartoum. Yesterday, Sudanese parliament designated South Sudan an enemy #1 followed by the State of Israel. They also publicly proposed the agenda to topple Juba government, which confirmed by their president, today. So, there’s no other declaration of war between the twn nations in the waiting. It is just bullet.

In fact, al Bashir is one of the mental patient being seen Psychiatrist in Khartoum, Prof Hammed Huron.
