South Sudan: Beware of your New Masters!

The United Nations voted to admit South Sudan as the as its 193rd member, barely a week after the new African country proclaimed independence on 9 July 2011, to become the 55th nation in Africa. How the United Nations ended decades of brutal civil warfare, provided humanitarian assistance, and all things charmingly beautiful and seemingly godly, is all we ever here and see in the msm, as usual! - (example here).

This blog has said quite enough about Sudan already (see related posts below), so I really don’t know what more to say - except to maybe point out a few facts the Judaic-controlled msm do not publicly broadcast too enthusiastically.

The wars in Sudan have been partly an Islamic vs Christian battle - terror-ifically fuelled by the stealthy forces of darkness, furtively aided by their communist brothers in the East - and partly a struggle over the resources of the now independent South. There was a virtual news blackout during the colossal conflicts of the not too distant past, and not much was reported on the enormous quantity of weaponry supplied by Soviet Russia and Communist China – weaponry that was utilized effectively to slaughter civilian Christians by the dozens.

The scorched earth tactics of the Islamic radicals, systematic terror bombing of civilian targets and the resurgence of the slave trade in Sudan, are some of the horrors that were exposed in Peter Hammond’s book, Faith Under Fire In Sudan.

-- OIL --

With the dawn of oil production in 1999, Sudan's government began collecting $500 million a year in revenue… BUT, about 80 percent went to the procurement of Chinese-manufactured weapons. See also: China Invests Heavily In Sudan's Oil Industry – (Washington Post)

Although the oilfields lie in the newly independent southern part of Sudan the new nation cannot do much with it, because all the Chinese-built pipelines and refineries are situated in the northern region.  So if the Arabs in the North want to annoy and provoke the people in the South, all they have to do is block the pipeline. This actually happened during July 2011 in the week before independence. The pipeline was blocked before bombing resource-rich Abyei (for the umpteenth time). See also: Equitable Oil Deal Needed For Peace, and Sudanese army takes control in Abyei. - Take note: This region does not form an integral part of new independant South Sudan!

So what more can I say about Sudan, that average folk do not know about?

More than 90 percent of the South Sudanese population live on less than $1 a day, yet despite this shortcoming, the many wars, the terror, famine and genocide, it has remained one of the strongest Christian Nations in Africa. South Sudan has willingly accepted tens-of-1000’s of refugees flowing from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Central African Republic. In early 2010, for instance, more than 3,000 Congolese refugees sought safety in Southern Sudan (source here), which begs the question why? Why do African refugees flock to nations where Christians are in the majority?

I take my hat off to the Southerners of Sudan for so valiantly resisting the northern Islamic jihad, but simultaneously - I also wish to warn them that that their leaders are now like putty in the hands of clever new masters, and that a new kind of enemy, which will be operating under the disguise of democrazy freedom, will progressively plunder the land and corrupt the minds of its people… But don’t stress – it will be done peacefully… with arts, sport, and entertainment... God Bless, and Good Luck!

TM, your write up on the So. Sudan is realistic and factual and, of course, one wishes 'God bless and Good Luck' to the 55th country on the continent.

However, having lived many years in Africa, 5 (five) of which in the Sudan, my expectations are - you guessed it. I was never brilliant in maths at college, but I do remember some basic statistics: when 54 times something got goofed up, the likelihood of the 55th is - well, no price money for coming up with the likely answer...!

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
