    Alturabi is not a scapegoat . He is to blame because he talked about the attack before it happened , he alerted the government , because he wanted to be a hero .
    He likes it .
    He likes to be in the heart of every movement , he thinks he is the best man that ever was born in Sudan , he doesn’t think that Khalil could do any thing without him or even any rebel other than Khalil .
    Did you hear him yesterday in Aljazeira !!!!

    Why did you think Dr. John Garang succeded , because Alturabi was outside the game !!!
    He was targeting Dr. John also.

    Everybody now thinks that it is the game of power between Alshabi and Alwatani !!!

    Where are you Khalil ?? You ran ???
    why did you leave your army to be killed if you are such a strong person , why did you run from the government ???

    OK , get more money & come back , and again Alturabi will be the HERO .

          Dear Sudani barking like a dog does nothing it could be better for you to wait for the next attack if JEM’s Soldiers will think to attack the Gov’t of Sudan again, so it will be a great chance for you to do what your mother and your father Bashir failed to do during that time as you stated that you were not in the City during the atttack as if you were to be there,then you would have do something to JEM’s leader.
