    Our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, game is over. Let this fat criminal (Italian) go and play game with you and you would regret it big times. This fat criminal (Mike Pompeo) and his secret societies criminals, think, they are equal with us here in South Sudan. Pope Francis, was a low life from Argentina. But he is now ’a pope in Italy’.

      Mr. Pope Francis even welcomed our low lives, Mr. Riek Machar and Riek Machar, and went and knelt down on them in Rome. The whole show is not being entertained here in South Sudan. Roman Catholic and evils are not any different. Read the damned ’da vinci code’. Catholicism, Anglicism and islamism are being fought over our country and our people----all the times.

        The lives have been dreaming that ’from Jerusalem, to Tigris Rivers, Euphrates Rivers and up to our Nilotic plains and valleys, their evil empire would expand to?!!’ I don’t know what do the evils smokes? The whole game behind the scenes is to ’geopolitical chess game South Sudan and the South Sudanese’ and then South Sudanese *carve in or surrender* themselves and our country to evil white Americans,
