Khartoum’s Demon and Gimmick – Bashir’s Folly Demise.

If it’s rhetoric let’s do some slick rhetoric and if it’s hardware shield, let’s put up the shield.
Juba have waited too long to speak out, about Abyei’s Khartoum forces alleged attack by Southern Sudanese arm forces, whereas withdrawing to the North (it was a two joined Integrated Unit soldiers quarrel: one from the South and one from the North, that caused the fight – termed to be an ambush, said, Kiir). Salva Kiir’s peace speech (we don’t want anybody to drag us into war) and Omar Bashir’s war-vulgar speech (Abyei is Northern and there is no “South Sudan Independence” on July 9th, without borders demarcated between the old Sudan and the South). Is someone writing Kiir’s speech, the wrong way, or is Juba waiting for the child to be born, so he knows how to feed a child? Mr. President Salva Kiir, You don’t wait for South Sudan, to say now we are a Country, to protect them, you protect them at all times of their need from the enemy North SAF. Someone must speak up here, and speak out loud for the demon to hear.
“Never surrender to fate, for then she ends by making herself intolerable” – Gracian, Baltasa. “The Art of Worldly Wisdom” (Book - 1647). Surrendering the Southern Sudanese masses including Abyei, to their fateful evil NCP by softy stance is a grave mistake, that’s unacceptable to Southern Sudanese people at home and abroad. The Juba leadership has gone silent in issues which matter to the region and its neighbors. Our women raped, civilians killed and displaced, homes and villages burned down to ashes, cattle rustled, and our belongings looted inside the South and most of all; our defense mechanism endangered on the frontline – where in the world, would Juba stand as a nation’s capital, without a hand to interrupt all these invading attitude!!
The Southern Sudanese people from civilians to their clothed brothers (both gender) in uniforms have voted to be a nation of their own – that mean, no one has the right boxes or ballots than the ones we have casted, counted and rejoiced for. So why is Bashir out to nullify South independence? The reason is greed and folly. Bashir must stop his irresponsible hate speech and invasion; they are not going to function for a new state. We should begin on a new floor. Khartoum knows exactly what is coming, after July 9th, 2011; the oil is never going to flow according to Bashir’s will, but Juba’s and that’s why he is trying to create some chaos, so he remain in charge to be selling oil in the South still.
So Bashir has this:One United Nations official said a northern Sudanese general revealed this week that there was a plan to send 15,000 Misseriya, an Arab and nomadic people, into Abyei in the coming days, which could have a serious impact on Abyei’s delicate demographics. Other United Nations officials estimated that 5,000 to 10,000 Misseriya had already entered Abyei town.New York Time, News “U.N. warns of Ethnic Cleansing in Sudan Town”.
Khartoum Fighting Folly of their Demise
The Satellite Sentinel Project – images in Muglad (www.satsentinel.org) are Bashir’s terrible behavior toward Sudanese people. This clearly showed Sudan Arm Forces intention to arm militias and government forces against the Ngok Dinka and Juba government. The military hardware apparatus of helicopters, and other fighting aircraft, tanks, truck and ammunitions on the ground facing South Sudan and particularly Ngok in Abyei; are worrisome. Some of these were used, both on the ground and in the air, during the recent Abyei town’s capture by SAF.
Did Bashir not claim that Abyei is Northern? If so, why did you burn Abyei once again for the second time in two years, displacing its Ngok population; replacing it with Misseriya tribe? This makes the North’s demand to be the owner of Abyei area – a fake requirement. Now it’s clear, only that we don’t have the judge. Khartoum needs Abyei not as inclusive as it could be with its people and resources, but wealth alone, of pastures and minerals which Khartoum want. There is no wise leadership which can support one tribe against the other (Misseriya against Ngook).
“This is absolutely absurd, said Sadig Nimir, a Misseriya elder, on Wednesday, from Khartoum, Sudan’s capital. We have no interest in occupying Abyei. Most Misseriya are cattle herders, and they don’t come to Abyei except once a week on Thursdays to buy supplies like sugar and oil. They don’t have the desire to live there. They only come to Abyei to graze. He added: We have no problem with the Ngok Dinka. We have nothing to do with this. This is a battle between two armies”- New York Time, News “U.N. warns of Ethnic Cleansing in Sudan Town”.
Dispensable are looting of UN’s and NGOs’ aid supplies in their compounds in Abyei by Khartoum’s national arm forces, with their militias without control. Besides, the dissolving of Abyei administrative body – replacing it with some people appointed from Khartoum, is just an insult to Abyei district constituencies.
Bashir government have failed to understand the sovereignty of the region South as a Country of its own, since the Naivasha agreement was tabled, incase if they didn’t comprehend the south Sudan’s, that took them more than 3 presidents since 1983, then time itself will shame them soon.
