Sudanese MP proposes sending parliamentary platoon to fight South Sudan


April 10, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — A Sudanese legislator suggested Tuesday to form a military platoon from the Members of Parliament (MP) and to send it to the battle fields to fight against the south Sudanese army.

The proposition comes as the Sudanese army is recruiting young people and the Popular Defence Forces - the government’s main paramilitary group - launched mobilisation campaigns in the different states of the country to send more troops to South Kordofan and Blue Nile a practice that was common before the 2005 peace agreement ended the previous north-south conflict.

MP Ahmed Al-Tayeb Alphengulw, speaking at a the National Assembly on Tuesday, said lawmakers themselves should fight besides youth mobilised recently by the government after hearing reports about the control of Heglig by the South Sudanese army and rebel fighters.

Alphengulw who is a member of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) accused the government of abandoning its principles adding "We have to remember the principles of our relationship with God, and call for jihad for the sake of God."

Yesterday the Sudanese government remained silent all the day while reports were broadcast by the international media about the capture of Heglig by the South Sudanese army.

Suleiman Guidoum, another legislator, called on the government to give a green light to the Sudan Armed Forces and allow it to wage a comprehensive war against the South Sudan. "How long the army will remain in the defensive position?" he asked.

He further called for the citizens of South Kordofan to be involved in the negotiations that are taking place in Addis Ababa, stressing that the government has to recognise the crisis in the state like it did in Darfur.

Sudanese government and former South Sudanese rebels (SPLM) signed a peace agreement seven years ago that led to the independence of the South Sudan in July 2011. However, a number of issues remained unresolved with the SPLM members in the north Sudan have been fighting Khartoum since one month before the proclamation of a new state in the South.

The growing tensions have led to a low level of war between the two partners of 2005 peace deal despite the international calls and the efforts of a regional mediation to settle the disputes.

The two countries now appear to be heading to war despite reassuring statements from the two sides the military option is not a preferred solution.

      No doubt about that. It is now pupable in Khartoum that the wrong turn was sour. They need reassurances that spla is a national regular army trained by specialists. their prime purpose is to defend our soverignty. Any belocose eratic behavior is misguided and illadvised. Poor school children should be wasted for NCP’s lunacy. regime change is certainly a true crouse for stability.

      Ahhh,Jalabas have forgotten the fate of ten thousand regiments debut as(Ashara Aliif) they sent to South in 1985. Illequipped with Quran in one hand and key to heaven in thier pockets, they were instanly sent to Allah they were indoctronate to meet. What do you think this time? It will be worser and unpecedented colossal human disaster to mujihadins in the history of sudan.

    I urge the honorable MPs to take panadol and relax. War is not a picnic and should not invoked without a serious thought. North did not really lose anything in the latest skirmishes. South just took what was ours and you guys can take solace in the fact that the barbarians are not at the gate. And by barbarians, I mean the Islamist officer corps within the SAF that is trying to overthrow Bashir.

    It is even much better if Khartoum cabinet ministers head South for the war. They should not enjoy themselves in their air conditioned homes while they send innocents to their so called heaven which is actually hell. The thunder of South Sudan is waiting for them to rumble.

      Where Jabare (jalaba) here?

      Gay man you want to understand that the first fighting on Heglig has forced all SAF and its ally-jihads to buff-up to protect oil rich town and ready for any attack. Now the question is why south Sudan forces managed it to seizures SAF up-to 30kilmeter out of Heglig while they are ready? This time you will go back to your Arab countries.

    Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ah! What an interesting thing? So Khartoum understands that no Darfurians and other black Sudanese they will use against their brothers these time, so they call themselves to come and fight a war with the south. Good indeed. Our parliament Members are all war heroes and generals who came out of war recently. They love to fight Khartoum’s MPs. Just come & meet them at bor

    "We have to remember the principles of our relationship with God, and call for jihad for the sake of God."

    You called for Jihadist war against Darfurian, Nuban and Blue Nilian Muslims? Does Allah allows that? What a great confusion in the Sudanese Capital?
