South Sudan: Defense by words isn’t the solution

BY: Mulana D’Duot, USA, DEC/31/2012, SSN;

Calling the cabinet for a meeting after the attack carried out by Sudan Armed Forces and not doing anything about it isn’t the solution. Our leaders need to think twice about this. How can citizens of an independent nation be attacked constantly and nothing is being done about it?

Could it be because they (Sudan Armed Forces, SAF) can defeat us or could it because they can do what they want in our territory? One might disagree with that, but one can say it’s basically because of Kiir. It could be because of his failed leadership as it well know that Kiir never ever captured any town during the war and that is unfortunately what is affecting us today.

He is good at closed door meetings but never succeeded in any of these meetings. It should be reiterated that this is not the first time that our country has been bombed and invaded by Sudan Army and their militia armies, especially in the Upper Nile, Unity and Northern Bahr elgazel and Warrap States

Every time SAF attacks our territory, the only thing we hear from his men is Mr. President called his cabinet for a meeting as he did yesterday in a luxury hotel in Juba to enjoy White Bull beer without any fruitful action from his inner circle.

“The cabinet has deliberated a number of issues today. The president briefed the council on the recent aggression by Sudan in Northern Bahr el Ghazal State. During the deliberation chaired by the president of the republic, it was unanimously agreed that defense of the country should be the top priority,” Marial, the government spokesman, said. “our priority will be defending our territories and all the necessary arrangements have been made.”

How can you be saying you’re defending your citizens, while they are being bombed and killed like sheep without a guidance?

Our leaders often enjoyed their fruits of failure in luxuries hotels in Juba and our citizens are dying from an enemy that we know how we defeated them. These leaders need to get out of hotels and get to work, give the SPLA their needed tools to do the job and to teach the SAF a lesson as the did when they seized Heglig, a defeat that they will not ever forget.

Our army, the SPLA are capable to protect our nation. However, our leaders sitting in Juba are failing our army. These leaders sitting inside their offices just talk and nothing being done. Time for talking is over, these are times for actions.

Our enemies are proven to be weak, and they are getting weaker as we know. Our armed forces can put complete stop overnight against the aggressors. Why not support them and let them show who we are? Our men and women are more ready to do this than what our leaders may think.

    Bottom line is: No change, no progress! Kiir’s inability to provide sound leadership is a nightmare for us, the citizens, and to the nation as whole. We must decides now, and not tomorrow!

  2. Molana D. Duot, it is because you’re out in Sudan, before secession of south Sudan, if you were here, you would have known the capability of pres. Kiir. His capability, humility and faithfulness to the work of liberation has brought him to SPLM chairmanship and to be the president of the new state south Sudan. Being kiir the president, that is why our national armies the SPLA are capable to defend the nation from foreign aggression. Come and join the people in protection of our young nation from foreign aggression, instead of being hidden somewhere and claim Kiir irresponsibility!

    To Dengor Akuei,
    This man called Mulana D’Duot is a coward as you said. The front lines that he had survived, you can’t be knowing them, man. The jechamer (Red Army) Kapeota who fought in 1994, he was among them. Let me assure you that jechamer itang, he was also there as a child soldier too.

    • Micheal koma, such people like Molana D. Duot didn’t join the Red army to help the people in the work of liberation, they joined the Red army to seek where to survive from hunger. If they joined Red army for the work of liberation, they would have not despised the party which has struggled under liberation and belittle of pres. Kiir. They are from the poor family who have no food in their houses, that is why they joined Red army to get something to eat. If they are patriotic, why they take refuge in other countries and left behind the people in warring zone? If they are really people with mind and heart to think, they would have not to tell something to people who sacrifice their life for the seek of south sudanese freedom.

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through many of the articles I realized it’s
    new to me. Anyhow, I’m certainly delighted I found it and I’ll be
    book-marking it and checking back often!
