Breaking News: U.S is taking over South Sudan. The campaigning to stop Dr. Machar is now been revealed

US-based think-tank calls for establishing international administration in S Sudan

salvakirrNovember 30, 2016, Juba – An American think-tank has published a report calling for an international transitional administration established by the United Nations and the African Union to be placed over South Sudan.

A special report entitled “Ending South Sudan’s Civil War,” published by the the US-based think-tank Council on Foreign Relations, said that the remaining path to protect South Sudan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, restore its legitimacy, and politically empower its citizens is through an international transitional administration established by the United Nations and the African Union (AU), to run the country for a finite period.

The report pointed out that the civil war left South Sudan on the cusp of full-scale genocide, with its sovereignty discredited by warring elites.

Katherine Almquist Knopf, the author of the report and director of the Africa Center for Strategic Studies based at the National Defense University, noted that an international transitional administration is the only realistic path to end the violence and to allow South Sudan the kind of “clean break” from its leaders and power structures that can restore the country to viability.

She explained that the proposed international transitional administration would not necessitate an investment costlier than what the United States is already spending—more than $2 billion since 2013 (and more than $11 billion since 2005).

The report produced by CFR’s Centre for Preventive Action recommended the United Nations and the AU to lead the transitional administration with an executive mandate for ten to fifteen years to maintain the country’s territorial integrity, provide basic governance and public services, rebuild the shattered economy, and establish the political and constitutional framework for the transition to full sovereignty.

It noted that opposition to a UN and AU transitional administration could be mitigated through a combination of politics and force by working with important South Sudanese constituencies frustrated with President Salva Kiir and oppostion leader Riek Machar and their cronies.

The report called for deployment of a lean and agile peace intervention force to combat and deter the remaining spoilers once they have been politically isolated.

Knopf noted that similar efforts have previously succeeded in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, East Timor, Cambodia, and Liberia.

The author emphasized that brokering such a transition will require committed diplomacy by the United States in close partnership with African governments.

  1. Keep away from our affairs. South Sudan is not the only country which is fighting itself. If USA need to take over our country because of the civil war which raging now, then the UN and the African Union should solve first the wars in Sudan. Nuba, Al Funj and Darfur people are bombarded with chemical weapons on daily basis, Where is the African Union? Where is the UN and USA? We believe that the UN and the USA are main cause of our suffering. We fought with Arabs of Sudan for centuries and but UN or USA and all European did not come to rescue us, We have lost nearly 3 milloin lives in two civil wars.-1955-1972 and from 1983. The first civil war broke out before the British had not left the Sudan. British knew very well what they did to South Sudan. They developed the North Sudan and kept the South Sudan backward, so it\s people remain subordinate to the North Sudan. South Sudan took the arms, and fought bravely for 17 years. In 1978, the USA Cheveron discovered the oil in South Sudan, by then Preisdent Jafer Numery was the best ally to USA. So the USA was relectant to support the SPLA/SPLM because of the conflict of interest. USA other Western countries become involved after September 11, for Ben Laden was in Sudan. We appreciate their support to bring peace into South Sudan. But this should not be used by our friends to decide what is good for us. They are suppose to assist the elected government to bring peace to our nation. But we have realised that they just want resources and not the people of South Sudan. If you want to be refree, be at the centre and you must be fair in your decisions.
