FILE - In this Sunday Jan 9, 2011 file photo Sudan Peoples' Liberation Army, SPLA, line up to cast their vote at their base in Juba, Southern Sudan. Only six years ago the Sudan People's Liberation Army was a ragtag group of guerrilla fighters battling a bloody civil war with Sudan's north. Next weekend, when the south breaks away from Khartoum and becomes the world's newest country, the SPLA becomes a national army. The U.S. is investing tens of millions of dollars into this fledgling military, one that is massing troops on the internal north-south border as tensions _ and violence _ with the north rise.(AP Photo/Jerome Delay, file) less
