Since 2013 there has been a civil war in South Sudan; over 50,000 people have been killed as a result of the conflict, 2.5 million displaced, and 4 million left in utter poverty.
When South Sudan seceded from Sudan in 2011, it took most of the oil fields, with both countries agreeing that Sudan would have the right to control the means of exporting the oil. In 2013, South Sudan broke out into Civil War, with Dinkas and Neurs — the two biggest ethnic groups in South Sudan — killing each other over power and territory. It turns out that Omar al-Bashir, the Islamist leader of North Sudan, has been arming rebels against Salva Kiir’s government.
As we read in a report published by Foreign Policy, “more than 70 percent of the sample of the opposition’s ammunition was manufactured in Sudan, with the vast majority made in 2014, indicating the deliveries were recent. The cartridges match those airdropped by Khartoum to Séléka rebels who overthrew the government in the Central African Republic in 2013 and to ammunition allegedly provided by Sudan to Yau Yau rebels in South Sudan in 2012. Damage to some of the materiel recovered in South Sudan indicates that it was likely airdropped to the rebels, which eyewitnesses claim occurred in September and October 2014.”
North Sudan has been perpetuating the conflict, in order to make itself to be the hero and justify invading the South under the guise of intervening and restoring order. Just this month, the dictator of North Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, said that he is ready to send troops into South Sudan to ‘restore order.’ “We are really concerned about what is happening in South Sudan, and we feel that we have the ethical responsibility towards the normal citizens in South Sudan because they were our citizens in one state, we are the government and the political party which make the peace agreement that led to the separation. So we will intervene to stop the war and famine in South Sudan,’’ Bashir said.
All of these governments do such things. Its all part of a conspiracy. Germany brought in refugees and allowed terrorists to enter in order to justify militarism; Turkey supported ISIS so that they could make a pretext to “intervene” into Syria and Iraq, and of course they ultimately plan on conquering all of that territory. North Sudan is utilizing this same type of strategy in their wanting to invade South Sudan.
Sudan has been called the “arm’s dump” of Africa. It was a country that had a huge absorption and circulation of arms way before South Sudan succeeded in 2011. When South Sudan did split, there was an estimated 3.2 million small arms being used in that country. In 2010 and 2011, numerous rebel and militia groups began popping up in the Jonglei and Upper Nile states, and the ownership and possession of guns has been precipitously increasing partially due to this.
In the civil war in South Sudan, you have hired militias, paramilitaries, rebels, bandits and even foreign fighters, with the global arms trade and smuggling deeply fueling the violence. But who is a major player behind the circulation of arms in Sudan? Germany. Former West Germany started a weapons flow into Muslim dominated North Sudan. Germany even built an ammunition factory in Khartoum, which is the capital of North Sudan today. In the 1980s, East Germany (under the Soviet Union) responded to the West German’s distribution of arms into the north, by sending weapons into the more Christian dominated South Sudan. As we read in one report:
“Meanwhile, research has shown the international role in weapon supply, with former West Germany introducing automatic small arms in vast numbers to Sudan, which, until then, mainly had old British carbines. West Germany also set up the ammunition factory in Sheggera, Khartoum, in effect, providing the bullets to keep the guns firing. In the 1980s, East Germany responded by supplying the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) with AK47s via Ethiopia. In this way, Cold War animosities were played out in the Greater Horn of Africa.”
The West Germans and the Soviets used Sudan to do a cold war against each other. In 1956, Sudan became independent from Anglo-Egyptian rule, and had its own first government. Ibrahim Abboud, a Sudanese general who served in the Second World for the British, became the head of state of Sudan in 1958. Abboud conducted a policy of Arabization all throughout South Sudan, which pushed English out in favor for Arabic, forbade missionaries from opening Christian schools or practicing their faith outside of churches. Southern Sudanese, tired of this discrimination, began to voice their remonstrances against Abboud’s despotic impositions. Southerners formed a very influential committee called the National Front of Professionals consisting of Christians, Muslims and communists, and began to do mass strikes which eventually exhausted Abboud’s administration. In 1964, the campaign strikes finally ended with Abboud abdicating his power and with the establishment of a transitional government.
In the same year of 1964, not too long after the ousting of Abboud, the new transitional government of Sudan sent weapons, supplied by Germany, to the Simba rebels in the Congo. When the Simba rebels were defeated in 1965, those same German weapons were in the possession of the South Sudanese Anyanya separatist group. After the failed 1976 coup in Khartoum against President Jaafar Mohammed Al Nimeiri, thousands of small arms and other weapons ended up in the hands of the local population in western Sudan. After 1983, Muammar Gaddafi actually armed opposition forces in South Sudan on account of his hatred against Al Nimeiri.
By removing Gaddafi, it strengthened Omar al-Bashir, the Islamist dictator of Sudan who is responsible for the deaths of millions of Christians and non-Arab Muslims. In fact, in 2012, Omar al-Bashir said that the removal and murder of Ghadaffi was “the best gift,” saying that:
“We came to thank the Libyan thwars (revolutionaries) for what they gave us, the best gift to Sudan in its modern history”
Ibrahim al-Hillu, of Darfur’s Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) faction headed by Abdelwahid Nur, called for the Libyan government to arrest Bashir for crimes that his regime had committed in Darfur:
“We are calling for the Libyan authorities to arrest Bashir and send him to the ICC because he committed crimes against his people in Darfur”
Gaddafi was arming rebels against the North Sudanese government, and by removing him, it was only to the glee of a genocidal Bashir. There is a conspiracy here. For when South Sudanese leader, Silva Kir, was sending arms to Dafur for rebels who wanted to overthrow the Islamist tyrant, the Obama administration pressured South Sudan to cease its arms flow to the opposition forces. In August of 2012, I wrote a report on how while the US government is arming Islamists in Syria, it has stopped the arming of rebels against an Islamist government in Sudan:
“The support of the rebels in Syria, and the condemnation of Assad, by the Obama administration can only make one question as to why he is against this particular regime, but not that of Omar al-Bashir, the tyrant who has been responsible for the deaths of millions through the Jihad that he has commenced against Christians and the non-Arab Muslims of Darfur.
In fact, Obama had at one point in time prevented Salva Kiir, president of South Sudan, from aiding rebels who wanted to topple al-Bashir’s regimen, and replace it with a secular government.”
In the same article, I quoted a former U.S. envoy to Sudan, Andrew Natsios, who recounted how Obama was directly involved in pushing Salva Kiir to stop giving arms to anti-Bashir rebels:
“On November 12, Agar, Hilu, and the three major rebel leaders in Darfur formally announced a new alliance to depose Bashir’s Islamist autocracy (the Sudanese affiliate of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood) and install a secular democratic pluralist state. Khartoum has accused the South Sudanese government of supplying the rebel alliance with weapons. The Obama administration repeated the charge. That led to an acrimonious meeting between U.S. President Barack Obama and South Sudanese President Salva Kiir late last year. The South has since stopped weapons transfers.”
What is happening here? Its a conspiracy. The US killed Gaddafi who was against Bashir; the US stopped weapons, which were going to be used to remove Bashir, while at the same time arming Islamist rebels in Syria; and Germany gave the Islamic North Sudan weapons. And now we know that North Sudan gave weapons to rebels in South Sudan to continue the conflict there. This is reflective of a global conspiracy being done by both African and Western nations. The nazis in suits never cease in devising evil, from paying terrorists for blood diamonds to further fund their operations to enslave people to dig for more shiny rocks, to supporting Islamist killers with weapons, they never stop their evil ways. I spoke with a Catholic priest who works in South Sudan, and he told me:
“The conflict in is about power and wealth and everybody in the region is conected: Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudán, European Union, China, USA, etc. Where there is oil, everybody wants to be in and get something.”
The tyrants of Shinar used slime to embed their bricks together when they built the Tower of Babel, that is, they used oil to build their edifice of despotism. Where there is oil, out from it comes riches, but where there lies the source of extravagance, there lies the source of vitriol. The black slime protrudes from the earth, and as the despots bask in the darkness of their gluttony, the cries of the innocent are heard from the same earth, crying out for justice.
