Now they’re sounding the alarm, warning that South Sudan, the world’s newest country, is “on the brink of catastrophe” that could rival the horrors of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. In that conflict, some 800,000 people were slaughtered in the span of just 100 days while the international community watched, unable or unwilling to stop the bloodshed.

Read the entire issue devoted to South Sudan: http://www.vice.com/read/saving-south-sudan Late last year, South Sudan's president, Salva Kiir, accused his former vice president, Riek Machar, of attempting a coup d'état amid accusations of rampant corruption within the government. Infighting immediately broke out within the presidential guard, sparking what has now become a brutal tribal and civil war that has pitted Machar's ethnic Nuer loyalists against the majority Dinka, who have sided with Kiir. Machar narrowly escaped assassination, fleeing to the deep bush as Kiir's troops razed his home and killed his bodyguards. And now the world's newest sovereign nation is in imminent danger of becoming a failed state. In February, journalists and filmmakers Robert Young Pelton and Tim Freccia ...

South Sudan is less than four years old, but the world's newest nation now tops the ranks of failed states worldwide. After decades of civil war with the north of Sudan, it was meant to be a dream come true. But the country has disintegrated into chaos. Thousands of people have been killed and almost two million displaced in a civil conflict that erupted in late 2013. How has a country that was born out of so much promise turned into such a nightmare? Were there warning signs that this could happen? Fault Lines investigates how a select group of US politicians and advocates shepherded the nation into existence, and asks what responsibility they now bear for the political and humanitarian disaster unfolding in South Sudan.
