South Sudan is bleeding as never before; its people were better off under Sudan than being an independent country. Five million people don't know where their next meal is coming from and, of them, 100,000 are starving and face death. If not for humanitarian efforts, millions could die.
As you may know the country was created by the West for its oil resources. They were sold lies about discrimination from Khartoum and what a prosperous country it could become if it chose to secede from Sudan. They believed in those lies and dreamed big. They voted in a free election, and decided to secede.
And now they know better. Its two main ethnic groups, the Dinka and the Nuer, went to war over oil and power. South Sudanese Christians are killing other Christians and animists and vice-versa. Ethnic cleansing is going on for the last few years in which government and rebels forces belonging to president and vice president, respectively, are participating to wipe out respective foes. Famine is ravaging in this man-made crisis. As a result, more people have died, and continue to die and suffer than anytime before. That is the sad reality!
