South Sudan ethnic clashes leave 200 dead

Ethnic clashes have left up to 200 dead in South Sudan.

At least 200 people have been killed and hundreds more have been wounded in South Sudan in the latest series of fierce ethnic clashes and cattle raids.

Hundreds more are missing as a result of the attacks in the state of Jonglei, which has been said to be reprisals for a wave of cattle raids and ethnic clashes.

“The people killed are around 223, 150 are injured,” Jonglei state governor Kuol Manyang said, adding that some 300 women and children are thought to have been abducted.

Thousands of cattle have also reportedly been stolen when the ethnic Lou Nuer living in neighboring Upper Nile state were attacked by people from Jonglei’s Murle area.

A historic peace agreement between Sudan and South Sudan signed in 2005 paved the way for an independence referendum in January 2011, in which southerners voted almost unanimously to secede.

South Sudan became independent on July 9, 2011 after decades of conflict with Sudan, which claimed the lives of thousands of people.

The oil-rich nation is one of the least developed countries in the world, where one in every seven child dies before the age of five.

    Huh, isn’t that weird? Here we have an organization which was supposedly created to prevent this sort of thing, And yet this kind of situation has happened several times since the UN was created…or brought back from the dead…which ever way you want to look at it.

    It’s almost as if the UN were not there to protect any individual at all but rather to protect certain individual’s interests… (People “lie”…corporations “protect their interests.”)

    So what is the purpose of the UN if not to protect people from atrocities such as this? Any so called “peace keepers” heading that direction? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Sending peacekeepers in to such an area is in direct conflict with their population control agenda. Those people don’t matter and need to be eliminated anyway, so let them kill each other, right? They have no wealth among the people so what use are they to them? Once the poeple have killed each other, it will be no problem to move in and claim their oil. Oh sure, they may have to put a puppet in a position of leadership, but I’m sure the CIA could make this happen. It’s worked well in the middle east so far… Everybody has a price, right?

    The UN and all of it’s puppets which are being placed in positions of leadership is a disease on the planet.

    Oh, and hello my fellow Americans who visit here, let me clue you guys in on something. It has been let out that the Obama (puppet) administration has been collecting dirt on Mitt Romney (puppet) for a year and a half. Why do you suppose that is? My opinion: Because Romney has already been chosen as the GOP nominee, that would be my guess anyway. Why waste time digging up dirt on the others when you already know who wins the nomination?

    When the SHTF, I will stand with those who believe in life and the right to live no matter what nationality they are, what “race” they are said to be, or what dogmas they may believe. I will not fall for the divisions our leaders are desperately trying to get us to believe.
