|[Disorder and Instability in South Sudan]|
Currently, South Sudan is steeped in ethnic violence, creating conditions of chaos and instability and threatening to draw Sudan and Uganda into the conflict. The Ethiopians are already there as UN "peacekeepers", but that is another story. And of course, in the background are the major players, Russia, China, and the US, all of whom have some stake in the entire affair. Of course, where there is oil there are those players. And of course, those same players are also the key powers in the UN and on the Security Council, using poorer nations the likes of South Sudan in their selfish quest for economic and military advantage. When is this greed at the expense of poorer countries going to end?
