OMAHA, April 14, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — As the regime in South Sudan remains an obstacle to finding an everlasting peace in the world’s youngest nation, the humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in an alarming rate.

To analys the comments
The erupted war had caused a lot of crisis basically in Greater Upper Nile Regions although our brothers make themselves cheaper for that rogue genocidal regime.
The international community should make amicable decision on those who are carrier crimes involving of innocent murdered in Juba and one ethnic tribe cleansing.
However Mr killer regiment is finished thought their bribed allies will shortly end up soon in Bentiu for the last thickest party and other location in upper Nile.
Congratulations to the splm/spla iO delegation to US for humanitarian support to south susan ‘s suffering citizens.
All the donors should desist giving money to the rebels and the government.
This will put more pressure on them to bring an end to this murderous killings civil war. This war was caused by them and they do have responsibility to bring it to an end. All the donors must not heed these problem-causing people request.
You are really making move! ”LET MY PEOPLE GO” is one of project needs to be implemented because Kiir is busy killing humanitarian workers in his territories. Tell those USAID to come down and help them
Nuer and FOODS,look at them.
SPLM was left by Nuer in the 1990s and when they came back, they cling to it and abandoned their own movements they had formed when they stabbed it (SPLM/A) in the back…Big shame to the Nuers….I know when this war becomes hotter, you will form your own movement with different name…SPLM does not belong to you. It belongs to the mighty Dinka who founded it, stood firmly and fought it to the fullest…Naath, your population has been reduced terribly in this war, you better leave the fight and come home, your sins are forgiven atleast for the sake of peace….
Those people got everything in USA.,they should go to South Sudan for private business trips or visits.
If Dinka were men why should they involved them selves with Uganda force?
It mean that no army for Dinka to depend their food
Congratulate Nuer they are Husband of Dinka
Dream on if Nuer they are Husband of Dinka. Why only obese people ran to Addis Ababa? Are you not ashamed of Addis Ababa and Hotels? Nuer should think twice before doing anything.
rightly said agumut & chulbaar nuers are on the brink of extinction in south Sudan. if few of them survive this, then they will keep on telling their grant children never to dare dinka. dinka still reigns & they shud also remember majority rules ova minority
Thomas, history can tells all but we are all the witnesses, yourself Including. You know very there are many our Nuer people who go into fighting without asking what if ????
We, the Dinkas are strong and brave people, but that is not to say that other 62 tribes are not brave. They are strong and brave too. Nuer is the only tribe which is frustrating essential development in the Republic of South Sudan. There is no tribe in the South Sudan which previously formed many tribally-affiliated militias more than Nuer tribe. In fact, Nuers are known for bad things. Nuer people are nothing, but tools of theirs corrupt politicians.
Nuer tribe will not make us listen to them by fighting us.
In conclusion, you cannot instill political sense of discipline in the people by killing them. Nuers have been wrong many times in theirs previous political endeavors and they will be wrong too this time. For those of us who have lived the war cannot be history. We are the living testimonials prove of the war.
Most of those people in picture will pack up and leave USA like AL Shabaab Terrorists. They have to Show off,but they should think twice of their US citizenship.
what ‘s happen to ‘s kiir ‘s mentall.but some dinka can’t understandable.please my people peace ‘s one way that will unit us insteade of rase our new nation. Look why a mr.kiir still killing you danka ?misled money lover u will see!!

The world is fighting Terrorism,ISIS,Boko Hram and Al Shabaab. I think those big guys need to protect their own lives and their own security because Kiir is the president,they will unite with United States to kick them out one by one.

Most Al Shabaab Terrorists were living in West,but where are they now.,they have kill them one by one.
