Why were the aircraft there? Did they have legit business there? If there were risks, were they paying attention to them?

This is a typical CIA precursor to the next "war on "

I give up. Why?

Seriously, though- probably because we have had our fill of young men coming home in coffins?

Just a wild guess.

What, the US can fly through anyone's airspace on any pretext and they don't expect to be shot at. Just Typical. I don't buy the US citizens bit although on further reflection I suppose CIA operatives are sometimes US citizens.

This has been posted before, quite a while ago in fact.

Same ol same ol.....Oil and keeping it out of the hands of other countries:

China's interest in Sudan Oil




By Waakhe Simon Wudu
JUBA, 5th July, 2011 [Gurtong] - A ten days capacity building course organized by China Petroleum Engineering and Construction Corporation, CPECC aimed at promoting petroleum industry in South Sudan commenced in Juba yesterday.

CPESS confirmed that the training is divided in to two stages: theoretical knowledge lecture and practical operation.

35 eligible South Sudanese have been selected out of 800 applicants to be trained by the Chinese Oil Company.

According to the training manuals, the program intends to consolidate cooperation in petroleum sector, improve the employment situation and encourage talented South Sudanese to mastering knowledge and techniques relevant to petroleum and working in CNPC’s subsidiaries.

“This is the first step on how South Sudan will manage her oil resources,” said Hon. David Loro Gubek, the Undersecretary of the GOSS Ministry of Energy and Mining who was invited as the guest of honour.

He urged the trainees to apply the knowledge they will gain from the training effectively. Gubek said that as South Sudan becomes a new nation in a few days from now, the region still lacks skilled labourers especially in oil exploration.

He urged other oil companies to carry out similar capacity building initiatives to boost the South Sudanese human resource in the oil sector that is still very low.

While delivering his remarks, Mr. Zhang Zailian the Deputy Consul of the Chinese Consulate pledged for close ties and cooperation with the new government of the Republic of South Sudan, ROSS.

The over two decades of civil war in Sudan limited the South Sudanese from access to quality education. This hindered South Sudan in having skilled personnel in most sectors.

For the virtually independent nation, skilled labours in nearly all sectors remains a critical challenge that the new State is likely to face.

Violence threatens Sudan Oil




South Sudan is rich in oil, but infrastructure challenges and rising violence could undermine economic hopes for a troubled region, Graeber writes. The country gained independence in 2011, but border issues, ethnic fighting and disputes over oil have led to violence in South Sudan.
