    I hope that US new envoy would come and be more pragmatic than come and be yet another US lecturer to South Sudan and the South Sudanese people. South Sudan did had a good will of American people and so did the South Sudanese people to American people. But then came some crooks who thought they can manage South Sudan like it their 51st states and the South Sudanese people like US subjects>>>

      and the rest got mired in the process. Some outsiders do not know that South Sudan people don’t like to be bullied or controlled. Others called backwardness or arrogant, but that is how it is and always will be. Yes, our myopic elders have made a very costly mistakes, and South Sudanese people have paid a very heavy price for their myopic mistakes. And of course, some foreign moles with their>>>>

        dirty and nasty interests over South Sudan want to use these same useless South Sudanese criminals to have their own way in South Sudan, however they are plainly told that the bucks would come and stop in South Sudan and with the South Sudanese people. Regime change of other countries’ govts often work in other countries. But here in South Sudan, it is not going to happen as we know it.>>>>

          Yes again Mr. Salva Kiir is just an empty head in that cowboy hat. He has let this rort goes on for so long. He always sacks some his mobs for corruption and incompetent, and when some his sacked mobs rebelled and went and make a lot of noises outside the corridors of power, then he would try to reinstal them into power to queiten them up. A system of governance that was properly used by>>>

            former Zaire, now DR Congo dictator, Mr. Mobutu Seseko. Mr. Salva Kiir has been warned to stop ruling South Sudan like Mobuto Seseko, that a line has to be drawn in the sand, that corruption, incompetence and an unnecessary armed rebellion must be always rewarded at all costs. Again, foreign powers are not supposed to dig deep into South Sudanese people internal issues>>>>

              but the loser seem to heed these South Sudanese Solomon warnings, but when the real truths behind these warnings later came into fore, then the empty headed cowboy hat wearer would try to blame others. But he doesn’t know he was part of the problem in the first place. Why he let Mr. Riek Machar out after J1 complex shot out solely rest on him and his henchmen>>>

              • 1 February 16:15, by Langbaar

                Why he succumbed to foreign pressure all times, especially the release of the so-called former detainees (FDs) to Kenya to go and be used by the US, the UK, the UN, their sleazy NGOs and some of their lackeys here in the IGAD and the AU solely rests on him and his henchmen. Mr. Salva Kiir knows that South Sudanese are very proud, brave people and don’t like to be bullied by anyone.>>>>

                • 1 February 16:22, by Langbaar

                  But our Salva Kiir of all people and his bunch of advisors have let South Sudan and South Sudanese people be played circus and bullied by even some creeps here in our region whom we can just walk over in matter of a week or two. Mr. Salva Kiir has now taken a full time errand to foreign capitals to go and knelt down and to explain himself to foreign leaders>>>>

                  • 1 February 16:31, by Langbaar

                    something that is utterly degrading to South Sudan and the South Sudanese people. Mr. Salva Kiir, his henchmen and his opponents should instead be crisscrossing South Sudan telling South Sudanese people to grow their own food to have enough for our selves and sell the surpluses to other countries to have enough money in our pockets. But all these myopic elders love is to create a mess, run to>>>>

                        however there was a rumored minor incident between Mr. Salva Kiir and John Garang before the 2005 comprehensive peace agreement(CPA). Those are just considered rumors by the South Sudanese people. Mr. Salva Kiir also asked the ’national reconciliation and dialogue’ in side South Sudan. But foreign powers of the US, the UK, their evil juus (co-called israel) attack dog, their lackeys here in the>>>

                          IGAD and Africa union (the AU), the UN and the NGOs refused this ’national reconciliation and dialogue’ inside South Sudan simply because they will come and have no ’leverage over South Sudan, blackmails or bargaining chips over South Sudan and the South Sudanese again. But keeping their foreign puppets/stooges, traitors and thieves of Mr. Riek Machar>>>>

Even a deaf or a blind South Sudanese know this simple fact. But our enemies who covet our country and county to death are going to be bombed pretty badly out of our country>>>

South Sudan is not part of the so-called ANGLO-AMERICA empire, never has and will never will, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM.
