      The numbers of killed from SPLM are 1,200
      The toll is impossible to verify but an AFP correspondent who accompanied Marouf said the putrid bodies of dead South Sudanese soldiers lay beneath trees which are scattered about the area.

      He said the number of bodies was so large they were "uncountable".

        1200 is nothing

        in and around Heglig.

    Let AU,UN enjoy those photos because this is what they want by ordering the withdrawal of Mighty SPLA from Panthou.They are now watching without actions.SPLA is capable in teaching Khartoum more lessons.But this time if the woman(Bashir)of AU,UN cry to them and they ask us to withdraw from Khartoum,then our deaf ears are ready for them.

      Chol,

      AU, or UN has no problem at all. We are like two bulls fighting while they enjoy watching us. When one side is defeated, they laugh. I’m sorry to say this, but it is true that the International Community like Mr. Ban Ki-Moon of UN supports Sudan and he will soon agree with Sudan claims concerning the damage they have done to the oil production. They bombed it and claim SPLA is responsible.

    This is a real war. If I am mr president I would order Governor of Upper Nile-Simon pouch and Jonglei Governor Kuol manyang to attack Kurmuk onward to Damazin. And Paul Malong-NBG and Reziz-WEG to attack , and Warrap-Nyandeeng and Unity state-Taban plus the Three Equatorian states be order to attack Abyei. If someting like this happen,then the North will top killing our civilians. Thanks

      You are right!
      This is a simple matter to SPLA. all we need is to win both diplomatically and militarily, but unfortunately, our diplomatic wing did not play well in the game. Maybe this evidence will educate the world about who is aggressive. I am sure you will wake up tomorrow and hear about world responds. All we need to hear in the news is official SAF aggression towards S. Sudan.

    Jalabi,
    As wild and uncouth, uncivil as Arabs are across the globe, you can’t far from those doing these senseless killing of innocent civilians and bombing other’s territories. Do you think all that you guys in Khartoum are doing to us will go unanswered. One day, you will hate it! You will pay back for any damage that you have done to South Sudanese people and their territory. Believe me!

    If Higlieg burns then south sudan burns. The more the SPLM or the rebels they support attack our borders the more we will attack and these attacks will keep moving south and become more intense. If you thought attacking higlieg and burning the oil field will go unpunished then think again. Attack Abeyi and we bomb Juba.

    No anti-aircraft missile system yet? how about sacrificing your monthly salaries to buy a weapon that can protect us from the aerial bombardment, does this make sense? or do we choose to be bombed with the salary in your pocket. Why don’t we use common sense? and those secret oversease accounts could have saved lives

      The SSLA is calling upon remaining SPLA forces to join the forces of change to liberate our country from corruption. Under the leadership of Salva Kiir, South Sudan cannot achieve peace because the only thing Salva Kiir specialized in is corruption. Without equality, democracy, internal peace and stability, the realization of the good life—better food, housing, and living conditions

In fact the bomdbardments on South Sudanese territories is nothing but a false asurance of NCP to its masses who is going to feel the pain inflicted on them by SPLA.

There are no AfroArabs as there are no AfroEuropeans, or AmericanEuropeans or AustralianEuropeans or CanadianEuropeans thereare only Afro-Americans. And Afro-Americans are blacks.

    If you’re Africans then believe that you’re black. You’re only brainwashed by the Arabs and they laugh at you when you claim that you’re Arabs. Look at your vice-presidents, Nafie and most of you...you look far more different from pure Arabs of middle East. You are odd from them. So you’re Arabs wanabees...that is embarrassing indeed
