  1. Very foolish people. They should go an island and kill themselves there. Stop dragging Sudanese into your War.

  2. SPLM) has become the dominant single political movement in
    Southern Sudan, and the potential genesis of a one-party
    state. The July 2005 death of John Garang and the formation
    of the Government of South Sudan (GoSS) have given the SPLM
    opportunities to bring rivals and former adversaries into the
    fold. The enlargement process has intensified factionalism
    within the SPLM )- by no means a new phenomenon — as the
    former inner circle of John Garang competes with a bloc
    coalescing around GoSS President and SPLM Chairman Salva
    Kiir, and a smaller faction headed by Riek Machar. GoSS
    President and SPLM Chairman Salva Kiir,s commitment to
    consensus has kept the situation in check, although internal
    tensions remain. Presidential Advisor Malwal reportedly
    leads a sub-faction within Kiir,s group that was a major
    factor in the agitations between Kiir and Garang faction.
    Malwal,s influence over Kiir now seems to be on the decline,
    to the satisfaction of the Garangists. The following
    paragraphs chart alliances and internal dynamics. End
    summary.

    2. (U) During two decades of civil war, the SPLM experienced
    a series of internal splits generated by traditional ethnic
    rivalries, differences over secession, and the autocratic
    leadership style of John Garang. The Government in Khartoum
    took full advantage of this process to use factions that
    hived off from the SPLM as Khartoum,s proxies in the war.
    Despite its fissiparous tendencies, the SPLM remained the
    dominant political and military movement in the South. As
    the Naivasha peace process gained traction, various factions
    began to return to the fold, beginning with the Equatoria
    Defense Force in 2004.

    3. (SBU) The signature of the CPA in January 2005
    accelerated this process. The historical political parties
    of the South ) atrophied, with largely geriatric leadership
    ) provided no serious counterweight. Other forces such as
    the South Sudan Defense Force (SSDF) remained in the field
    but were more military than political in nature, although the
    personal animus of some militia leaders toward John Garang
    posed a daunting challenge to southern unity, and thus
    implementation of the CPA. Garang,s death offered
    opportunities for compromise that had not been possible
    before. Since Salva Kiir cut a deal with the most powerful
    leader of the SSDF, Paolino Matiep, many of the followers of
    other factions, such as that of Gordon Kong, have reportedly
    defected to the SPLM.
