The Nuer White Army issued a statement in which it announced its intention “to annihilate the entire Murle strain on earth, the only solution to ensure the long-term safety of Nuer`s livestock.”  In the Pibor massacre in particular, an estimated 900 to 3000 people were killed in Pibor. Although Machar and Kiir are both members of the SPLM, they come from different tribes with a history of conflict. Kiir is an ethnic Dinka, while Machar is an ethnic Nuer.   All peace agreements signed since the beginning of the current civil war were Juba-dominated agreements on power-sharing at the elite level. To have a seat at the table, you need armed forces. Therefore, in order to participate in internationally sanctioned peace agreements, rival armed factions recruit civilians. During the negotiations, they then rush for control of lucrative ministries. Those who are excluded from the process have no choice but to return to the battlefield to regain a seat at the table. . . .
