Contention 1 is the South Sudanese Civil War The conflict in South Sudan continues and is set to escalate in light of rebel leader Machar's call for an armed struggle against president Kiir Butty 9/27 (James Butty is a reporter/journalist that focuses on Africa for VOA news, September 26, 2016, "South Sudan's Riek Machar Calls for Armed Struggle" ) Former South Sudan First Vice President Riek Machar has called for an armed struggle against the government of President Salva Kiir — a move that could mark a renew al of the country's civil war . The call came in a statement issued over the weekend, following a meeting in Khartoum of Machar’s Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in Opposition (SPLM-IO). The movement signed a peace deal with South Sudan's government in August 2015 but implementation was delayed and largely fell apart after the sides clashed in the capital in July . Stephen Par Kuol, a senior member of the SPLM- IO political bureau, said the call is in reaction to the Juba government’s repeated attacks on SPLM-IO positions . “We have been waging armed resistance since 2013 when this was imposed on us. We had suspended that until we were attacked recently in Juba. Be also informed that the government is launching attacks on our positions everywhere in the country. So, we are putting up resistance now,” Par Kuol said. A spokesman for South Sudanese President Salva Kiir , Ateny Wek Ateny, said Machar is a warmonger who has nothing good to offer the people of South Sudan who, he said, are yearning for peace. "I actually read the statement and came up with the conclusion that Riek Machar will be Riek Machar. He will never have anything better to offer to the people of South Sudan apart from war,” Wek Ateny said. Unchecked Chinese involvement in Sudan feeds into a system that exploits children, engages in mass killing, and genocide Powell 9 -- (Tessa Li Powell, "China’s Relationship with Sudan—and Human Rights Consequences," ) Introduction China is the largest country in the world and has a rapidly expanding economy. Its streets are starting to crowd with cars instead of bicycles and there is an increasing demand for the luxuries of developed nations. The desire to keep up with major international players has pushed the Chinese government to overlook whatever human rights abuses may be occurring inside and outside of its borders. China has taken steps to support Sudan despite its use of child soldiers and the genocide in Darfur that has been occurring for years. By criticizing and withdrawing support from President alBashir, China could serve as a major player in curtailing the human rights abuses in Sudan. Child Soldiers Sudan has been suffering from internal conflicts for years, and boys are often drafted into militia and government armies . At a young age, boys are forcibly drafted and brainwashed into committing acts of violence

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
