    Yea, the creeps have messed up their relationship with the European countries and they think. They will come and have their usual smooth ride in African countries?! Good luck to the evils. Probably in Middle East though. But l doubt African countries would want to have anything to do with the British. Here in South Sudan though we just hate the evils like our backs that we don’t see>>>

        British people and their evil juus? That the South Sudanese refugees are in North Sudan? What the hell are they going to do in that hellhole? Some of these idiots think that they can Geo-politically play our country and our people like their then West and East Germany and then hope that they can eventually re-unite us with the people we hate to death. Careful fellows>>.

          The English, white Americans and Arabs always consider themselves the most racists people on earth. But that is not true, South Sudanese people are the most racists and the most revengeful people on earth. The Nuers and some Equatoria usual messy ways is what still let the cloned so-called arabs still deal with us. But we will eventually settle our old scores with the evils cum-sun, cum-rain.
