    Loss of lives is bad, however, God might have ordered the destruction of Criminal Bashir’s Antonovs before reaching the destination where innocent civilians would have been the victims. May God destroy all Russian killing Machines, especially Antonovs, Mig 29 and Gunships just for the sake of civilian lives.

    Not Sudani-Inta, why go all that far? Islam killed 2.5 Million South Sudanese people, now killing another millions Nuba people. Or do you say the Jihad that was launched by your genocidal Muftis in Khartoum against South Sudan was not in the name of Islam? If not why did Muslims kept silent about it? I know Islam more than you do because I have studied it.

    The antonov that crashed is the one which killed people last time in Panthou,so let it go.Al Bashir always depend on airforce but Jesus has deployed his defence forces in heaven to destroys any plane that used for killing innocent christians.

    This is what happened to someone whose heart to kill an other one.you Arabs, shall not kill the spirit of real-sudanese people.
    Your army fails to accompany convoy of tructs,so you resort to plane cargos.
    I can say among the 13 victims there is no even the single Arab, all are black Sudanese Africans.
    "May God Almighty rest their soul in the internal peace".

    Jesus gave orders to Kiir yesterday that do not wast your resouces in airforce because i have came up with new strategy to deal with any plane that will carry out any attack in the land of cush which is my promised land forever.So guys Jesus has shown us his seriousness.

    • 7 October 2012 16:40, by Dinkawarrior

      M. Coma!
      100% I strongly believed Jesus’s promised! Remember what he did to President Hussien Obama during the Presidential debate, everybody on earth praised him as smart guy specially the Muslims. They thought it was Mohammed who made him wise. When Jesus got mad, he took his wisdom from him and the man left with big empty hrad. After all, everyone went wild and start asking what is wrong?

    The ’Savage Government’ gets rewarded in this way! The wage of sin is DEATH! The savage government that promotes rape, murder, torture and all other inhumane practices in the society that belongs to children of God, shall be punished in this very way! This is a clear sign of victory to people of Darfur who suffer in the hand of stinking government. A government that oppresses its own citizens!

    Khartoum government is fighting with African gods. This Khartoum regime had been against Black African tribes for many centuries this is why we have lost 2.5 millions lives, 300,000 Darfurian African tribes being murders by Omar al Bashir’s militia and in addition to Nubian people being bombs using these expensive Antonov and I think God and African gods are punishing Khartoum regime for sinful
