South sudan has been in trouble for a long time now, with two sides to the military. i think they have tried to roll the military into one body, but this has failed hopelessly. the problem is blind servitude to certain generals, and, war incitement by senior soldiers, where when there is a opportunity to fight, they put petrol on the fire to incite violence, to keep the soldiers together and in high spirits, still fighting for what they originally fought for - their leaders to have power. So, if this is the only way to end it, i would hazard a ante that 'they allow these generals power.' if it comes to saving lives and stabilizing the economy, so that people will have a better way of life, then why not appoint the generals into senior positions? why not, better yet, allow the generals to be senators from their own regions? like provinces or states - they could run those, yes? But, these are old solutions to problems, we need new ones. the soldiers were promised riches, something they still long for - give them houses? they still long for authority - mould them into a political party? these things should buy them over, at little cost, then the promises would be kept, they will need to lower their arms... i mean, loyalty is one thing, providing for your family is another.
