The sharp deterioration of the situation on the border of Ethiopia and South Sudan

30
Information Agency Associated Press reported a sharp exacerbation of the situation on the border of two African states - Ethiopia and South Sudan. According to the news agency, several hundred armed militants invaded the territory of the Ethiopian province of Gambela, where they massacred the local population. In total, 140 people were killed at the hands of the militants, including many women and children. Most of the victims, as noted by the Ministry of Communications and Information of Ethiopia, belonged to the Protestant confessional group.


The sharp deterioration of the situation on the border of Ethiopia and South SudanThe Ethiopian army and police launched a large-scale operation in the said province. As a result of this operation, it was reported that about 60 militants, most of whom belong to the Murle people, were liquidated.

According to AP, the Ethiopian army decided to pursue militants and entered the territory of South Sudan. However, the official authorities of Ethiopia deny the border with the Republic of South Sudan. The fact is that in the province of Gambela the border between the two states can be considered more symbolic. In fact, it is not protected by anyone, and conflicts in this region have long ceased to be rare.

For reference: South Sudan gained independence (from Sudan) quite recently - in 2011 year. During the referendum, more than 98% of the population of South Sudan were in favor of independence. The largest denomination of South Sudan are Catholics (about 25% of the total population). Islam is practiced less than 2% of the population. The majority of the population are followers of African quasi-religious cults. In 2016, the country has recorded a record level of hunger since South Sudan gained independence. Under these conditions, separate nationalities of the country are trying to fight for the territories of a number of neighboring states, including Ethiopia, Sudan and Kenya.

            This is also an important resource, but in general a great deal is brewing there.

                One hundred points - the resources are to blame for everything !!!

                Correctly! And the geopolitical technology of capturing these resources (in this case, gold and oil deposits) is the same everywhere - the Anglo-Saxon one:
                1. First, divide the country into parts by separating from it a resource-bearing territorial piece or a geostrategic piece of territory - South Sudan - with its comprador-colonial administration.
                2. Then, in South Sudan, to terrify everyone with the atrocities of their mercenary gangs and thereby cause “controlled” chaos in the country with the aim of making the authorities in a state of necessity to ask for outside force assistance.
                3. Then it is “kind” to offer their foreign military assistance to the people distraught from fear and chaos for their “salvation”.
                4. If the authorities refuse such help, make another coup d'etat and establish absolutely its colonial administration in the country - South Sudan.
                5. To enter there, at the "invitation" of the final pro-Western collaborators, their troops and build their military bases there. The foreign occupation of the resource-bearing region by the ex-aggressor "liberators" is over. Economically, they can infinitely neocolonially extradite in their interests.
                6. For helping to force the country's authorities to pay the neocolonialist “liberators” by transferring their national natural wealth into private foreign property. During the civil war and the ongoing "regulated" chaos, the whole country becomes the property of its own and foreign oligarchs - then only to foreign oligarchs.

                Whose geopolitical technology is modern warfare to seize world domination? That's right - US technology.
                It is in this "mess" in South Sudan that the ears of the US Federal Reserve bankers in the person of the CIA, the Pentagon and the US Department of State with their henchmen privately hired militants from around the world like "IS" stick out.

      Are you sure that this is a blunder, and not a subtle hint of thick circumstances, or a check for lice, there can be a lot of things, or rather, to stand behind this blunder, and not only. It’s somehow that the direct line did not really come out this year, even worse than in the past, and this is not only my opinion. So I thought, why?

    Unfortunately, this is a war of worldviews, a war of religions. Either it needs to be wiped off the face of the earth as hard as possible everywhere in the world, or it will erase the civilization familiar to us

    Look for the impudent ears of the United States in Sudan, which divided this state into the North and the oil-bearing South, which they took under their control. The problem now is that Russia found a huge amount of gold there and the government of South Sudan chose to give up its production in favor of Russian companies, which infuriated them. For this, the overseas bandits need a war in that region. Expect US Marines to arrive soon to defend "democracy." Oil and gold - that's the whole worldview and religion.

    And such times have never been removed from there. They fought, fight, and will fight, especially with external incitement. There are no full-fledged armies there, borders too. Look at least on the map - all borders are cut evenly and directly, without taking into account ethnic groups living in the border areas, which, among other things, often lead a nomadic lifestyle. By the way, South Sudan does not see oil and gold as its own ears.

    Ethiopian Militants Attack Kills 208 people

    An attack by militants from South Sudan in western Ethiopia killed 208 people. 75 were injured, reports The Guardian.

    The attackers also abducted 108 children. Currently, the country's armed forces are searching for terrorists who have committed massacres.

    The attack occurred in the area of ​​the city of Gambela, which is located 50 kilometers from the border with South Sudan. About 284 of thousands of refugees left South Sudan at the start of the civil war.


    Well, in general, Ethiopians now cannot reliably close the border. Through them is the main flow of arms smuggling from both Sudan, including Iraq, Syria and Libya - the same Chinese MANPADS and ATGMs came from Sudan via Ethiopia (to Libya via Egypt, but now Egypt is closing the border, introducing various additional measures tracking and the flow of arms through the country fell sharply).

    And what does Guzdep think about this? Something they put their tongue in to lick someone else's oil in the wrong place, in a place with a smell. Should this happen on earth, a bunch of rabble adventurers moved to another continent, knocked out the indigenous people and attracted the most notorious crooks to their country, formed, bred and arranged the times of the Wild West around the world. The US state itself will not be able to survive if the world abandons the American currency - the US will come "kirdyk".

    That’s how the Kosovo conflict began. KLA militants attacked Serbian villages and military units, then, having received an ear, quickly retreated to their bases in Albania. In turn, Serbian special forces carried out ferocious raids on Albanian territory, and the police carried out tough sweeps in Albanian villages at home. and the AOC would be completely destroyed, but nata intervened
