U.S., U.N. Stood by While South Sudan Troops Raped, Beat Aid Workers
South Sudanese troops ravaged through a hotel complex frequented by foreign aid workers last month while a United Nations force stood by in a neighboring area and the U.S. Embassy did not act despite repeated pleas for help to both.
On July 11, South Sudanese troops, fresh from winning a battle in the capital, Juba, over opposition forces, went on a nearly four-hour rampage through a residential compound popular with foreigners, in one of the worst targeted attacks on aid workers in South Sudan’s three-year civil war. They shot dead a local journalist while forcing the foreigners to watch, raped several foreign women, singled out Americans, beat and robbed people, and carried out mock executions, several witnesses told The Associated Press.
For hours throughout the assault, the U.N. peacekeeping force stationed less than a mile away refused to respond to desperate calls for help. Neither did embassies, including the U.S. Embassy.MOST South Sudanese are Christian.
The reason South Sudan exists is as a haven for the Christians and other people (some of whom are Sufi Muslims) who were being murdered in a 25 year long genocide by the Sunni Arab Muslim Government of Sudan.
This is a shame on South Sudan.
Hang the lot of them.
They do not deserve to be called Christians.
What a fucking abomination.
