South Sudan UN report

Quote:
The South Sudanese government has conducted a “scorched earth policy” against civilians caught up in the country’s civil war, allowing its soldiers and allied militias to rape women in lieu of wages, torture and murder suspected opponents and deliberately displace as many people as possible, according to a UN report.

TIA it sad but thats how african armies work. Most of the SPLA and for that matter most african armies dont have professional soldiers. They have thugs in uniforms. Thats why they break at the first sighn of trouble and target cilvians. The boy scouts would make better solders.

Saw a nasty report the other day about sea containers being used as suffocation chambers, with men and boys being herded in 60 at a time and left sealed for 3 days.
