U.S. Marines leaving Spain for South Sudan

See also

The world’s newest country, South Sudan, is violently falling apart at the seams. Right now it looks like it will be up to the United States Marines to swoop, evacuate the stranded 100 U.S. citizens, and beef up security at the United States Embassy.

In advance of the predicted civil war, some 150 U.S. Marines are believed to have left Spain for the Horn of Africa and will enter South Sudan when given the order.

There appears to be another 40,000 private citizens, non-Americans, who are locked down at U.N. bases inside the country.

Yesterday, U.N. Secretary Ban Ki-moon announced that peacekeeping troops from other missions would deploy to South Sudan as soon as possible, bringing to mind the U.N. debacle in Rwanda in 1994.

Meanwhile, the four U.S. Marines who were injured Dec. 21, when their V-22 Ospreys had to abort a rescue mission, have been transported to the military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany. One of those Marines is reportedly in serious condition.

The National Military Examiner publishes military and law-enforcement related content on this site and here on Facebook.

Thanks for reading and thanks for supporting those who defend our nation.
