“The only peace that can be made with a dictator is once that must be based on deterrence. For today, the dictator may be your friend, but tomorrow he will need you as an enemy.” Natan Sharansky

July 4, 2016, The Dinka-Centric regime of Salva Kiir has without a doubt turned out to be an instrument of pain. Instead of delivering governance and services to its citizens, it is focusing on nothing but creation of Kraal Dynasty as evident by recommencement of killing spree in Equatoria and this time the victims are the Equatorians.
ALL Equatorians serving in the Dinka-Centric regime are stepping on timing bombs which can explode at any time. Colonel George has been the latest victim after Wau Massacre. Everyone is a potential target as long as you don’t belong to the dynasty.
The killing of Col. George highpoints the determination of this criminal government to Dinkanise by Elimination (DbE) and by the look of things, nothing can stop them from realising their dreams, simply because the Equatorians have not planned for anything for their safety, up to the time of the writing of this revolutionary article.
Benjamin Franklin supposedly once said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail,” and so is it with us the Equatorians. It is seemingly becoming clear that we didn’t have any solid plan to navigate through the political storm when the two giants plunged the country into war in 2013. Without much discerning the Equatorians simply jumped on the wagon of a lesser evil cowboy who was on his way to the unknown destinations.
The lesser evil hero is finally back to his previous post while his gullible passengers aka Equatorians have become the unknown men among the unknown gun men.
They (Equatorians) have become political chewing gum which have now been spitted even by the lesser evil cowboy because it has lost its flavour.
If the chewing gum hasn’t lost its flavour would he (the lesser evil hero) not have come out to strongly condemned the brutal murder of colonel George, given that it was a failed assassination attempt on the life of his loyal General?
And if the Equatorians can come to their senses and for once, try to challenge the philosophy which has always held them back, would their lives continue to be stolen by the so called unknown gunmen, day and night?
So far Equatorians have been driven many times upon their knees by the overwhelming conviction that their patience would pay one day but it is utterly wrong. The situation has turned into survival of the fittest. If they must survive, they have to start speaking in language that can be understood by the criminal regime too, not just trailing a lesser evil hero all the time, or else perishing in their patience, civility or whatever you call it will become a reality.
A government that thrives in killing its own citizens is not a government but an organised criminal organisation; a government that cannot pay its civil population is not a government but a disaster. Doing nothing to get rid of it simply makes you an enabler by default and therefore responsible for its existence.
