Editorial :ROSS .. Jumping from a Frying Pan into the Fire!
The government of South Sudan started to payback the high price for its senseless step by attacking Heglig and occupying it.
That step granted the Sudanese government a golden chance to catch several birds at the same moment.
The price which the government of South Sudan will not be limited to the awful defeat which its forces will inflict its troops and the big human and material losses.
The price will reflect, according to observers, in the consequences of the southern inner to exacerbate the storming challenges facing the new-born state on political, economical and internal security levels.
We believe that the actual reasons behind that absurd step committed by the government of South Sudan are looking for an outlet to escape for the crises that threatens its continuation as a state.
Since its independence on July 2011 the government of South Sudan is facing internal cracks as several armed groups are leading a wide range rebellion against the SPLM government.
Those groups are unified now under the alliance called South Sudan Liberation Army and represent a great threat to the continuation of ROSS President, Salva Kiir Mayardit.
According to the International Crisis Group report, the rebel groups in South Sudan became not only a threat to Juba government, but also to the region as a whole as it might lead to humanitarian crises and abort development efforts.
The SPLM government military and political adventure was not accurately calculated as Juba government practiced what is considered as an escape forward without being aware of its capabilities to continue this exhausting action with its high political and economic price.
The SPLM government will harvest the bitter fruit of its brutal act, and the great powers, which supported it and pushed it to enter into proxy war, could not compensate its losses in the war imposed on Sudan.
Regardless of what had happened in Heglig the SPLA and the Darfur mercenaries under the so-called revolutionary front will not stand to stay in the area after its remnants are fleeing inside the new-born state borders.
After Heglig storm is cleared the SPLM will discover that it is the biggest loser as it will shoulder the responsibility of missing a good relationship with Sudan which was one day the motherland.
