    “BRIGHT STAR”!! What a meaningful, wonderful, wishful thinking name! In the middle of the upheaval in South Sudan a Team of ELEVEN may take things around. The people of South Sudan may agree ON THIS ONE, at least until the euphoria dies down — IF, IF, IF they win the game.
    After a day or so, things will go back to “normal” — one dictator fighting another dictator — one tribe against another — and the dis functionality of South Sudan, like any other African Country, will continue. WE can’t help it! It seems, it is in our nature!!!
    Please read my commentary entitled: : “I have no idea if my mother’s dead or alive” Apr 29, 2017″ about South Sudan in response to an Article on the same title. THE END
