Southern Sudanese line up at dawn in the soon-to-be capital of Juba for the first day of voting on independence earlier this month.

While the outcome may have been a foregone conclusion, the official results are finally in: South Sudan has voted, with 99.57 percent in favor, to secede from the north. —JCL

create a new country for the purpose of the greater israel…

remember, the 2 blue bars on that country’s rag are supposed to represent the Euphrates and the Nile…  and now south sudan or whatever… controls the Nile.

So…  the horn of Africa, the diminishing French influence, the increasing Chinese influence… israel and its ameriKan vassal needed to create this fiction.

Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Morrocco, Jordan are lost…

what better opportunity for the criminal jews to start another war, hoping to draw Iran into it this time and, again, force amerikan troops into it?

This is what this is all about and yet, incomprehensibly, nobody, even on these blogs, talks about it.

WWIII is here, made of whole cloth, how long you’re gonna keep your eyes wide shut?

If the time is now for revolution and insurrection in these lands, when does it become the case in the so-called “free world”?  which is nothing more than a fascistic capitalist zionist prison?

Wake up!
