South Sudan, one of the world’s newest countries, is already in danger of becoming a failed state. A civil war, which erupted there in December 2013 shows little sign of abating. Robert Young Pelton traveled to South Sudan to search for rebel leader Dr. Riek Machar and ride along with the White Army in combat. His report "Saving South Sudan" filled the entire April issue of Vice magazine.
