NAIROBI, Kenya — Gunfire hit three U.S. military aircraft trying to evacuate American citizens in a remote region of South Sudan that on Saturday became a battle ground between the country's military and renegade troops, officials said. Four U.S. service members were wounded in the attack in the same region where gunfire downed a U.N. helicopter the day before.

Time to unleash some drones on these rebels. They will not know where they are getting hit from.

Oh I see. A commenter calls for random killing in South Sudan and his jingoistic comment can stand. However a comment containing the truth about U.S. drone strikes and a call for a halt is scrubbed from comment.

Now, tell me again why we give a hoooter's damn as to what happens in these countries where the governments are usually corrupt and loyalties to clans and tribes are most important! So many of the countries in Africa are run in the very same way! Who in the living hell cares what they do to themselves!
