April 1, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — The leadership of the movement the SPLM/A must develop a new shift in the military strategic planning that would seek to strengthen the position of SPLA and subsequently will boost the morale of the troops. These would require a solid establishment of a strong intelligence body that would provides the operation with a real genuine operational military data.

Across the Upper Nile’s federal states, and Lich State for example, the movement had only concentrated to identify the state capital Bentiu as the primary military operational target for the movement. However, this is a wrong assumption of this particular military doctrine for this particular operational field from the military intelligence sector of the movement that highlight to the diehard supporters and political sympathizers of the movement the weakness of the SPLA’s fourth military infantry division.

Liberation of Bentiu without first the liberation of government’s strategic strongholds like Parieng county headquarters means nothing than simply winning a battle that would be exceptionally lost to the enemy the following day and subsequently loses the main expectation of the battle, which ironically means losing the war.

Parieng county is a government stronghold in Lich state in addition to the Abiemnom county in which the government uses them for reinforcement. The strategic Ida airstrip in Parieng county as well as the Abiemnom’s strategic bridge that links Warrap state to the Greater Lich region offer the dictatorial regime of Salva Kiir with cheaper cost mean reinforcement to its genocidal troops against the movement’s SPLA.

The recapture of Bentiu in May by the pro-government troops was simply due to government’s huge and cheap reinforcement routes by airlifting troops using Ida airstrip as well as reinforcing troops from division three from Bahr Al-Gazhal using Abiemnom bridge.

For Bentiu to be liberated for good and for all, Parieng must be first subdued to the control of the freedom fighters, closing all the strategically important installation being used by the regime in Juba to down-roots its presence in the oil-rich Lich state, including the narrow roads used by the Sudan Revolutionary Front rebels and in-Justice and Inequality Movement (JEM) to cross to the Republic of South Sudan from southern Kordofan state with the aim of reinforcing the Juba loyalists tribal army.

  • Madong Kuoth

    you are right man! But who knows what is going on there.

  • It should be asess first by freedom fighter on ground because they know the military tactic.

  • Try and that will be all Warrap backyard,i meant we will join in to kick all of you out.

    • GatNor

      You been saying you will join since forever as I can recalled on your old lies. You have not joined but you keep calling on others to come to the front line that you yourself is nowhere to be seen. What a war monger coward.

  • Deng II

    Panrieng and Abiemnom is not part of Lich State because it is Nuer State. There Is in no way you invented a name under a tree hiding and become reality. Why can Riek Machar fight for separation of Nuer Country? Riek will never become South Sudan President, and if he does, South Sudan will become Somalia.

    • Bentiu Ramaran

      Deng II,

      Who care if South Sudan become like Somalia. You Dinka you love to be in power yet you do not know how to lead people. Your incompetence president create these messes South Sudan is going through so less go for what you what want. The Dinka people create Ramicial to be the capital of South Sudan. Is Ramicial not a Dinka language? Why no single person opposes it?

      • Deng Ii


        There is a name given called Unity State that is existing, why we change it? When we move from an existing name Juba, we have to given a new name to the City that start from crush, and that is why the name Ramicial came about. Ramicial did not change any an existing given name to that city. So your comparison is irrelevanted. What is the reason Riek change Unity State name?

  • You deserve it wad Madira but in our culture we have what so called respect we share this 2 counties in good way instead to defend the colabrate Kiir’s regime we all away add our vioce to would world to end this comflict made by Killer Kiir but the ball is in the hand of Spla-Juba, his group is not responsive as President of New Nation, any way we will take over government by war.

    Kiir will win the battle by wine not by war

    • Deng Ii

      Kiir will win the war because its between him and Riek Machar. He is a patriat wine drinker, but Riek is triator killer. Abiemnom population is so fewest in number now a day because Riek 1991 try to erash them on the face of earth, a part from bor and Panrieng. All Nuer of Unity State know that facts very well. The two counties of Unity State will not co-exist any more. Nuer always turn to start killing Dinka Padang first even though they don’t have an idea what going on in world of politics.

  • GatNor

    Some general here on the ground are saboteurs and are undermining any strategic plans and strategies leading to the progress of SPLM/A-Pagaak capturing and maintaining any control over captured areas. These such generals should be put on time-out. I am a little concern by the lack of progress of Pagaak’s faction not having any control of any major town for this long considering the level of increased organization and readiness as compares to the first weeks and months of the break out of the civil war.


    hello dear war preaching are you folk in the front-line or you just assuming what will happen tomorrow? i want to assure you as a son of that land you are wishing them whatever you wishing us please you better forget about panaruu or panrieng whatever you name it. the sons of bless land will never ever allowing to set foot again. so you better not fool yourselves or maybe if want them to die then we will have no problem killing whoever trespass in our lovely land of Ruweng.

  • lich state …… you are dreaming and that can not happen ….. panreng can not be entered by your millita all of will die

  • dengcholmijak

    What a wishful thinking by a lone orphan writing behind the keyboard in Cairo egypt. Come to the battlefield yourself mister author of this wishful conspiracy. I am here in Panrieng town but there is no any foreign troops here other than the indigenous sons of the Ruweng County or heartland, do not mess with Panrieng, the sleeping giant in this conflict, God forbid you do not invade their native land or you would be hunted down subsequently as the result of your intrusive aggression. You are strongly advised and cautioned brotherly and friendly.

  • Juang

    As you are takin about war tactics to be used by renegade machar rebels to put this young nation back to travel is not a welcomed rather than peace

  • Buzy King Dee

    Fault accusations and wrong allegations will never spare you single second. You had been trying Panrieng since but what you gained most is mourning. …………try your luck this time maybe there are different Nuer emerged within you recently!.

  • The dogs of bentiu or nuer slaves of dinka are dreaming out far farther than a reality.They are our slaves and we the masters worry not.
    If they follow that plan,no one from them will remain to tell their children the tales of war.
    we are all the time converge to deter any attack from the aggressors and all the times, the enemy is for the lost.
    Worry not my brave people about that but only that if “Nyok Geeu toc.”
