That other US foreign policy disaster

Beside the ones in the Middle East. Above, via Sudan Tribune, a photo of government soldiers near a village in South Sudan. South Sudan was brought into existence as a bipartisan policy choice by the USA, but it's been a humanitarian and kleptocratic disaster from Day 1. The manner in which the soldier on the left is holding his gun does not inspire confidence that this is an army with civilian safety as a top priority.

Among the stories not getting much attention in the Trump obsession is that an army atrocity at the Terrain Hotel specifically targeted Americans. Normally, Americans being targeted produces a strong US government response.
