Obama’s War in South Sudan

The genocidal war being waged in South Sudan today is “Obama’s War”. Why?  Because the Obama regime is paying for it.

Thanks to Wikileaks we know that the CIA began paying the salaries of what is today the South Sudanese “rebel army” led by Reik Machar in 2009. And the CIA is still paying them today.  We know this because there is simply no other source of funding for these brigands that anyone anywhere has been able to establish (a question, btw, that the western media has completely failed to raise).

We are talking about an army of at least 20,000 professionals with at least an equal amount of “militia”, little more than ethnic death squads, who have been actively waging combat for 18 months now in an attempt to overthrow the existing South Sudanese government.

The bill for salaries, food, fuel, equipment and ammunition runs upwards of $100 million with the source of these funds a best kept secret.

“Show me the money”. On the CIA payroll beginning in 2009, secret until Wikileaks broke the story, and on the CIA payroll still. It’s the CIA’s M.O. clear as day.

When it comes time to start looking for answers for the causes of the murder and mayhem in Africa its best to follow the money trail, in this case right back to the Obama Mafia White House and its African expert, BHO’s “Quiet Consigliere”, Gayle Smith.

Why would the Obama regime pay for this terrible crime ravaging  South Sudan?

Its all about oil. The USA wants China out of its only oil field in Africa and will pay what it takes to get whomever to do its dirty work, whether the Contra “rebel army” in Nicaragua 30 years ago (back then it was Reagan’s War) or Riek Machar’s “rebel army” fighting “Obama’s War” in South Sudan today.

China supports the present South Sudanese government headed by Salva Kiir to the tune of over $8 billion in emergency aid and loans over the past 5 years and this is why the USA is determined that President Kiir must go.

Today, thanks to a brigade of Chinese “peacekeepers” protecting the Sudanese oil fields a minimal amount of oil has resumed production. But the Chinese efforts to develop the rest of South Sudan’s oil reserves have come to a complete halt, thanks to “Obama’s War”.

Lets face it, when it comes to the USA’s “national interests”, as in preventing Chinese access to African oil, there is no limit to the crimes the USA will instigate and fund, no matter how many millions of Africans are left to rot in refugee camps or worse, starving in the bush in South Sudan.

It’s “Obama’s War” in South Sudan with the USA being the only party to benefit from this madness and the only party to have been proven to have funded Reik Machar’s “rebels”. Its not the first time the USA has done this.
