Nov 3, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — Phase Two … Eric Reeves the cursed to South Sudanese and Sudanese people and also a cursed to future South Sudanese relations where “America’s chickens are coming home to roost”

Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright in 2008 warned that “We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye… and now we are indignant, because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought back into our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost”. I hope the American government is monitoring what Eric Reeves is doing


November 3, 2014, today in his usual hypocrisies statements on the so called Sudan Reeves Organization, Eric loosely described the most powerful man who is loved by his people namely Gen. Peter Gatdet that “is a notoriously brutal and untrustworthy soldier” and “bears command responsibility for the terrible atrocities in Bentiu that occurred when the town was seized by his forces” he said.

Eric Reeves continues his communication with Juba by revealing that while the dry season is accelerates with the arrival of the dry season, the rebel forces that make up what has been designated, without precision, the (SPLM/OI) will be badly hampered by the lack of effective communications and intelligence-gathering capacity and lacking modern warfare” no wonder why Salva Kirr is fooling the world by withdrawing the negotiation team in Addis Ababa?

My Respond to Eric Reeves:

“General Peter Gat is an Able military commander and a fierce fighter, as well as a charismatic leader and talented mobiliser” according BBC World Service, July 11, 2014”

Therefore, you are wrong, you are just being jealous for you are nothing in America beside misleading information and hearsays that you collect based on amounts of dollars you collected. Gen. Peter Gatdet is not as you have described above. Gen. Peter Gatdet is a beloved son and father of the people of South Sudan who has simply responded to a simple called by his people. Gen. Peter Gatdet has backs of his people and will always be, unlike you Eric Reeves who is little known in his native/own country and community.

Peter Gatdet is a well-known General worldwide for his “able military commander and a fierce fighter, as well as a charismatic leader and talented mobiliser” according BBC World Service, July 11, 2014”

A profile of Gen. Peter Gatdet continues, according to BBC that “Gen Gadet is believed to be politically orientated and always responds to any harms to his tribe namely the Nuer People of South Sudan”

Unlike you, Eric Reeves who depend on hearsays and long article writings to get some few dollars from your donors. General Peter Gatdet is only depending his people from being brutally murdered daily by your likes, the so called money first society and politics. The entire world knew that Salva Kirr triggered this unwanted war in South Sudan for well-known reason in Africa, died in the office and killed anyone on your way.

 Confusing the humanitarians and Politics

In 2008, the then, U.S senator Barrack Obama almost lost his bid for the presidential candidacy when his then pastor Jeremiah Wright in the sermon makes the distinction between God and governments, and points out that many governments in the past have failed: “Where governments lie, God does not lie, he said. Where governments change, God does not change”

Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright continues and said “the government lied about Pearl Harbor too. They knew the Japanese were going to attack. Governments lie. The government lied about the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. They wanted that resolution to get us in the Vietnam War. Governments lie. The government lied about Nelson Mandela and our CIA helped put him in prison and keep him there for 27 years” These lines by Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright became the overall issues almost caused Barrack Obama’s bid for White House.

As Rev. Wright was to President Obama, the Eric Reeves’s Sudan Organization as it represents humanitarians is in question. The prove, the following statement said it all that “Accompanying Gadet’s accusations, often wildly agitated and almost incoherent, are repeated threats to shoot down UN helicopters. Indeed, the point of the call Gadet made was precisely to issue this threat. Five days later, the UN helicopter was shot down, killing three Russian crew members working for the UN and injuring a fourth. (Russian officials made clear very early on that they were convinced the helicopter was shot down, not a victim of mechanical failure or pilot error.)

Is Eric Reeves is trying to incited war between Peter Gatdat and UNIMIS? Agitated, incoherent and repeated threat, how so? This statement itself has not purely beyond opinion and inciting violence? Or is Eric Reeves’s hatred toward Peter Gatdet is another twisted to encourage UNIMISS to declare war on the Nuer people who are already the victim of Salva Kirr’s greed?

As useless as he is, Eric try and said “If it names Gadet as responsible for the August 26 helicopter shoot-down, he may well respond by declaring a no-fly zone over Bentiu and its environs, shutting off a key humanitarian corridor and destination”

This is not going to happen; the whole world knows that Peter Gat was not in Bentiu when the JEM was chased out in Bentiu.

In conclusion, It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt, said Mark Twain
