"JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — South Sudan became the world's newest nation early Saturday, officially breaking away from Sudan after two civil wars over five decades that cost the lives of millions.

In the new country's capital, Juba, streets pulsed with excitement. Residents danced, banged on jerry cans and chanted the name of the world's newest president, Salva Kiir...."

I wish the very best for this new nation. I hope the people of South Sudan are able to secure their liberties and develop a prosperous nation.

Maybe Obama can produce a long form birth certificate and become their president. No wait, I wish them the best.

Nevermind.

Carry on.

Update on South Sudan

Just to give an update on the Republic of South Sudan that was recognized as a sovereign nation by the United Nations about 6 months ago.

Apparently, the government of South Sudan is at war with at least seven different factions. The government is disarming the various tribes that live within the borders of South Sudan. This move is seen as a method of ensuring that the current government remains in power.

Well, so much for hoping that the people of South Sudan would use the opportunity of having their own nation to build a better tomorrow.
