    "If I was the leader of my country, I would not follow what America has done because the real-time to help a country is when a country is in problem. I would have not paused any kind of aid. Instead of giving those aid to the government first, I would have distributed them directly to the people.I would tell the new leaders to rule the country by keeping the opinions and wants of the citizens in consideration and not letting their voice suppressed under fear and worry. I would help the people both financially and academically. I would focus on academic help more and try to provide scholarship opportunities in my country for poor students and hand over different study materials to them. If the country still faces an autocratic and suppressing rule then I would make an alignment with other countries and ask for help with international organizations like UNO and UNICEF in favour of the people

    If I were the leader of my country , I would first establish the economy in it, because the most important thing in the state is the economy, and then establish parks and major centers such as hospitals and schools, and I can say to other countries, let us unite because in the union there is strength.

    If I were the leader of my country, I would have united my country under the slogan of unity and weakness in division, because unity is the basis of every state and every civilization. By loneliness, no one can defeat us and we can overcome all dangers. I advise my people to rule justly. It is not fair to stop aid to the people of the country because there are families who are not guilty of anything and innocent children who do not know how to fight or hate, so we must help them in every way and means so that we raise them generous and lively. Because children are the foundation of the future

    If I were the leader of my country, I would first not follow anyone, because if I was the leader of my country, I would increase the aid and not cut it off on my community. The advice that I will speak to my people about is not worrying about anything. If I exist, I will give you the best assistance in everything.
    (A few words, but it has meaning and great joy for the residents of the country.) 💜

    Since independence in 1956, Sudan has witnessed several military coups, some of which succeeded and others failed. In a military coup, Al-Burhan announced on television that the city's pilgrims had been exempted and pledged Sudan's commitment to the agreements he signed. in Admala. Occasionally, and in the recent coup, the Sudanese army believed that a number of civilian officials in the government believed the Transitional Council, including Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and his wife, the dissolved Sovereignty Council and the government, among them. Militarily and civilly, he has held power in Sudan since August 2019 under an agreement reached by the two parties after a few months of obedience to President Omar al-Bashir in April of the same year and ending his 30-year rule.

    If I were the leader of my country, I would not stop the aid provided by my country because this is my country's activity. If I stop it, we will kill people from starvation. So should the aid be stopped??? If I were the leader of my country, I would like to give advice to the people, which is that we must all unite in order to face the difficulties and so that our country does not become the poorest country in the world. Our people are hungry and poor, and all the people can buy all the products, so we have secured the needs of our people

    I will not accept what America has done and provides the Sudanese with adequate aid in terms of clothes, money, food, etc. I advise them to follow the orders of physical health and to preserve the value of the country. I tell the neighboring countries and cities that provide valuable aid to communicate with them and make them send valuable and sufficient aid to the Sudanese, such as Saudi Arabia and Yemen If I were the president or minister of my country, I would make my city the first state or place on which I am based, by making it not see poverty or hunger at all, and I would make parks and do each person with his requirements and what he needs from winter, summer, spring and autumn clothes, and sufficient healthy food, and distribute it to the merchants and the merchant If he sells it at a cheap price, the poor person will be able to buy it..... I will be proud that I am the president of my country and I will make everyone in my country to slander me with his tongue on goodness and thanks... But we have to help Sudan.

    First of all, As the "leader" of Nigeria, I have decided to keep the aid in Sudan and even add more troops to help the country. As a developing country leader, I know what it is like to experience coups, in Nigeria, we have militants like Boko Haram, Fulani Herdsmen, and even our own Anti Robbery Squad. My advice to Sudan Leaders is to embrace the culture of humility, don't be afraid or too proud to ask for help, if you really need it, it will be given to you. As for the citizens of Sudan, I urge you to be cautious but brave, don't be afraid to speak your mind. For the rest of the world, you can help Sudan by Giving to UNICEF, which is working to help the children displaced by the conflict, and by donating to Save the Children, which has been working in Sudan since 1984.

    From my point of view, I do not agree with preventing aid, whether I prevent it for my country or any other country. What is the fault of the people who suffer from poverty and hunger, that their only supply line, which is aid, is cut off, and with this decision, you condemn the death of approximately 146 families due to cutting aid and deadly poverty? Their fault is that they found in a poor country corrupt presidents who are not interested in the people
    Aid is a light in the sea of ​​darkness for these people, so I do not agree and strongly oppose the decision to cut aid

    If I was a leader I would not ‘pause’ my funds but I would controls where they are headed. Maybe toward climate organisations or other less violent institutions because as Sudan is extremely poor it needs funding but could be irreparably altered by someone who was suddenly able to access large amount of wealth and could misuse it. But I would also urge other countries to follow my lead and assist many of these types of countries - especially Sudan because of the current coup- financial aid so that they can attempt to realise a new governing system. However, you never know what the situation is for many people and communities so I do not believe that America was totally in the wrong to be hesitant but they are still wrong for denying Sudan life-saving financial support.

    2-- In my opinion and from my point of view, they should try to become what the presidents before them have corrupted and learn from them. As the saying goes, “He who reads the past in the wrong way will see the present and the future in the wrong way.” “Therefore, they should learn from others and avoid falling into the mistakes of previous presidents, such as neglecting the people.” Not developing the state and being negligent in spreading corruption, so they have to work to help the people, because the people are the foundation of the state and they are the ones who put their hopes in you. You represent to them a sun that appeared after a long, dark night. Do not disappoint their hopes.

    I used to hold meetings and called on all parties to assume responsibility and restraint, and to prioritize the interests of the homeland and the citizen above all else.

    If I were the leader of Sudan, I would conduct an interview with heads of state and talk about the causes of the coup and ways to limit it and sign a power-sharing agreement between civilians and the military. The Sudanese army is still dominant in matters with the decline in the role of civil forces due to the division they are witnessing, according to what analysts see. .

    The military and civilians signed a power-sharing agreement that provided for a three-year transitional period that was later extended after the Sudanese government concluded a peace agreement with a number of armed rebel movements.

    Under the agreement, the military would assume power at the sovereign level while a civilian government and a legislative assembly would lead the transition.

    It is no secret to anyone that this topic is one of the vital issues that concern all members of society, and in this topic I will try to address all points and aspects effectively equally. If I become a ruler, I will impose the law effectively equally on everyone. For free: “In the beginning, the citizen’s hunger is silenced. Then we move on to the second step to remove industrial, commercial, agricultural, and household taxes for temporary periods until the country rises and and become a civil state not governed by a military state. One of the demands that the people (the demonstrators) rejected was the overthrow of Al-Bashir’s rule and his government.”

I would judge with the help of Sudan or not. first, I would compare the previous policy way better than the current, I would cut aid to Sudan, but in half, or if the current was better, l would send aid and this would be l will vote and l will advise the new leaders that if they are wronged, this will not pass without reckoning, and I advise the people to calm down until the new leaders are judged fairly.

    This event reminds me of a scene in the anime Attack on Titan, where the army guarding the walls arrested the king and the advisors to discover their lies and plots against the Survey Corps, And if I were to talk about my response to this coup, I would say it simply. Of course, there is a convincing reason that caused this coup, and this defect in the government because it is not natural for an entire army to turn against it, To be clear, the government deserves this. Over these years, it has been making the people die of starvation and does not provide the necessary services for them,The soldiers had to take a stand to shed light to solve the problem, whether it was with the support of the rich countries or the act of the government.

    I will not stop the aid, but I will stop sending aid to the government and I will appoint a team to distribute aid to the poor, because a failed government will fail even in financial management

    I tell you with confidence, that no good will happen , if your minds remain in an intellectual ruin, and this intellectual ruin is the failure to provide the necessary services to the people, and the exploitation of the presidency to meet their own needs!!!!! , And for myself, as a leader, I support the coup against you, if you will continue to postpone the demands of the people, because the rights of the people are not something that is condoned, but rather an order on you as a president, as a person who put hope in him, to achieve it!!!

    If you are going to take action and help your people, start by supporting their creative minds, I, you, they, everyone has the right to share their creativity and theories widely where they can find someone to listen to,
    Especially at this stage of global issues, where there is the Corona virus, and also climate change, you, as a president who wants to improve the country's economic level, must improve the percentage of its participation in global issues,Because if you support the experts in your country, you will be able to shed light on the scientific field in your country, and this will attract the big countries to cooperate with them, and this will return a material, moral and scientific return to the people.


    We as other countries, it is true that we are different peoples and governments, but this issue is a humanitarian and political issue, we have to support the people financially, even if only a little,Because we too will go through this situation one day. All our countries have gone through a phase of destruction because of the leadership of a failed government, so we, as governments, have to support each other, This will increase the unity among the people of the world and will make humanity appear!!! If we carry out major international projects in Sudan, and of course they will be joint projects between countries and Sudan, we can gain our peoples knowledge of different cultures,This will help them when doing research on global issues and their impact on poor countries ,This is how we support science and scientists in our countries

I will solve it by developing projects, not obliterating them, and the support that comes from friendly countries. I will use them to open factories to work in them, and some of them I will distribute to people equally. Democratic I will choose from my country people I can consult with on some matters and take their opinion and point of view, I will try hard to unite people and make them brothers to fight the occupier and make our state independent (unity is the way to victory), I will be strong and not afraid of facing injustice, some of the leaders are afraid of facing injustice and are silent and encourage it for fear From losing their rank and consequent demonstrations and coups.

    In case I was a pioneer I would not stop my assets however I would controls where they are going. Perhaps toward environment associations or other less savage organizations in light of the fact that as Sudan is very helpless it needs financing yet could be hopelessly modified by somebody who was unexpectedly ready to get to enormous measure of abundance and could abuse it. However, I would likewise encourage different nations to take cues from me and help a significant number of these sorts of nations - particularly Sudan in light of the current overthrow monetary guide with the goal that they can endeavor to understand another administering framework. Notwithstanding, no one can tell what the circumstance is for some individuals and networks so I don't completely accept that that America was absolutely off base to be reluctant however they are still off-base for denying Sudan life-saving monetary help.

I will tackle it by creating projects, not wrecking them, and the help that comes from amicable nations. I will utilize them to open production lines to work in them, and some of them I will appropriate to individuals similarly. Popularity based I will browse my nation individuals I can talk with on certain issues and take their viewpoint and perspective, I will make a decent attempt to join individuals and make them siblings to battle the occupier and make our state free (solidarity is the way to triumph), I will be solid and not scared of confronting unfairness, a portion of the pioneers fear confronting foul play and are quiet and empower it for dread From losing their position and ensuing shows and upsets.

    If I were the leader of my country, I would condemn and denounce what happened. I see that change takes place in a democratic way that respects the people's will for change and peaceful demonstration that guarantees the rights of all. The occurrence of injuries among the demonstrators indicates the use of force of violence and this is dangerous. The authority must return to its democratic path and resort to elections, as was agreed upon under the previous government, as a people called for freedom. and democracy under international auspices. As for sanctions, they should not include the people, as rulers compete for power and influence.

It is also necessary to provide job opportunities for the unemployed youth, and to give the Sudanese people complete freedom to express their opinion and support the youth and not make facilities for legal and illegal immigration, and if All of the above has been met. My country will be a coherent and strong state, because we have listened to the voice of the people, and most of the people's problems will be solved.

    If I am a leader one day, I will work to help people and secure their life needs, and I will work to cooperate with many charitable institutions to do this because I will allocate some of the state budget to employee salaries and the establishment of hospitals, clinics, gardens, parks, etc. .. Therefore, it is my duty as a leader to provide permanent assistance to needy and poor families, and I will also work to provide more jobs to reduce unemployment rates, and also I will work to benefit from smart and creative minds that can help the state and provide everything they need to avoid and prevent their exit outside the countries In order to get job opportunities, I will also work on focusing on the scientific and cultural aspects, because knowledge is light and ignorance is darkness. I will also be doing alms with neighboring countries and avoiding wars

    I would not necessarily pause any aid that my country is giving but I would attempt to fund and assist the places where the situation is most critical. This is because I would like to use the most effective strategy possible while decreasing the amount of money that is used. I believe that this method will be able to significantly help those in severe danger and hopefully reduce the amount of problems and deaths in Sudan.

    I would also endeavour to keep as many people fed as possible, creating a source of funds to Sudan globally. If we were to give 7 million pounds to Sudan we would only be able to feed approximately 3 million people, leaving the other 45 million people to be left hungry. We would have to donate at least 112 million pounds to feed everyone. That is why I believe that if we can create enough sources of money we will be able to feed more people and save many lives.

    The coups that took place in Sudan is the reason for the Sudanese leaders’ neglect towards the citizens by not giving them their right to live in security and their right to life. It is necessary to encourage the Sudanese people to defend their rights and we will support them to be one hand against the enemies

    Humanity has always lived with the idea of a "saviour leader" who will fulfill its hopes and dreams, and ridding it of all kinds of misery, to a green and honorable beach on which the sun of happiness, calm and prosperity shines. And the more severe the crises, the greater the need for this hero and leader.
    So how did this coup happen in Sudan?
    I don't live in Sudan, but through the media, I learned what is happening in Sudan, and according to what I heard and read, the reason for the coup was that a crisis was for personal reasons, and now it has developed into a political crisis. This contributed to the coup against the partners.
    Today in the history of Sudan, the coup has become an inevitable fact, with the beginning of the coup in which the President of the Sovereign Council in Sudan Al-Burhan announced the dissolution of the sovereign councils and ministers and declared a state of emergency. The work of the articles of the constitutional document or some of its articles was suspended, but the announcement was preceded by the arrest of a number of civil officials in the government. The Ministry of Culture and Information also issued a statement saying that the Prime Minister and his wife were kidnapped from their home in Khartoum and taken by unknown military forces to an unknown location.
    This has resulted in the rupture of the constitutional document and a complete coup in Sudan, and the death of the Sudanese people, who have been shed in blood because of this coup.
    After knowing the cause of the coup in Sudan, I will answer your questions as though I was the leader that might save Sudan:
    Certainly, I will not accept American aid, and I will not follow America. As a leader of Sudan, I want to rid Sudan of this coup and I will work to stop the aid provided by America, because it does not represent anything in aid, and relying on it and on the West will not benefit the people in anything.
    But I and my people will stand alone in the face of this coup and tyranny.
    But there is a question on my mind, which is the idea of stopping the aid, in your opinion. Could it have an effect on the ground in persuading Al-Burhan to back down??
    As a leader, there is the ability for Sudanese society to come out of this coup without aid, but relying on American aid and other aid will not benefit or affect the solution to this coup. I'm trying to say that America's rulers play with its interests before the interests of the people, and this is what I think.
    As commander, I want to say a word to the New Elders/
    First, when the people fall into crises, they do not expect you, O new rulers, to help them, or for the national and international authority to help them, or to restore their democracy to them.
    And that the new rulers’ dependence on other foreign aid will not benefit the people, for the people are the ones who tame the world from the perspective of freedom and democracy, and that the rulers should not decide our fate, we the people, but we should decide our fate by ourselves and our right to it.
    My advice to my people and my message to them is how to be a civilized nation and the soldiers of the coups control us.
    I teach them that military coups are always aimed at gaining more power and money, meaning for personal interests, and there is no officer who risks his life and tries to make a coup for the benefit of the people, but there are naive people who think the opposite.
    We don't rely on the expressions (condemn, denounce, denounce)
    Now the whole world will witness the mighty will of the Sudanese people, and we will uproot everyone who tried to provoke this Sudanese coup, and we will publicly punish them.
    They should know that you cannot be heroes while you are fighting against your country.
    I also want to say a word to all the countries of the world:
    Countries should not have good relations and normalization with enemy countries, such as printing Sudan with Israel, because this is one of the most important reasons that lead to the spread of chaos and coups that occur in the country.
    And weak countries should not be affected by threats emanating from the major countries, because this will not affect them, and this is nothing but a weapon that they use to frighten them, and this is what the major countries aspire to from the weak countries The weak state is forced to submit to the strong state, and this is what the major states aspire to from the weak states.
    So the country should not fall into this trap. The threats serve as a green light to highlight the greed, greed and dirty goals of these countries.

        As I said earlier, the weak state should not succumb to the threats of the major states. It must confront the threats. Addressing the threats also identifies new ways to understand the face of the interrelationship between states and their implications for the policies and institutions that weak states must have.
        A weak state can counter threats by seeking help from friendly and supportive states that know they have no colonial or political interests, though I don't think there is a state either ، because in this life there is always a return for every service.
        Likewise, the threatened state must reconfigure and renew again its institutions, which have arisen through the threat of chaos and lack of focus, in order to discuss the threats emanating from the great states and work to discuss the threats.
        If the concept of the threat in order to expand the scope of the Great Power and expand its colonization and control over countries?! If so, the weak country should work to take its right
        and not succumb to the threats issued and give the task force to insist that we all must understand the purpose of threats from the major powers.

    If I were the leader of my country, first, I would stop the population alone and hold elections for all the people. Second, the matter of America, I do not follow, because if I deducted from the amount only 70 percent, because when America stopped giving it 700 million dinars, it made it difficult for the Sudanese to access the files of aid funds to the country. Third, I say to the new leaders of Sudan: Keep On your flock, because they are faithful to your neck and do not give up anything, and do not sit on chairs made of the bones of the poor children of Sudan and care for the population (the elderly) and provide all their needs. Third, I say to the leaders of Sudan to advise the population to help each other because despite the huge resources that the civil war is 1 Poverty 2 caused death and injuries (which also reduced the population) Fourthly, I tell other countries to support Sudan and the rest of the poor (developing) countries, and I advise brothers among all countries, whether Arab or non-Arab / and in the end all countries are brothers🥰

    In the beginning, if I am a leader, the most thing I will try to implement is to keep my country in permanent safety away from all dangerous events, because this affects the people and all countries as well, for example, like the events in Sudan now. You will tell me how these events affected you while you are Palestinian, but it really affected I will tell you my story with Sudan and the current events in it My cousin Raed, who is 21 years old, had a dream from a young age to become a surgeon. He got a high school score of 96, and as you know in Gaza universities, there is no major in medicine and surgery, but he got a scholarship in Sudan, so he decided to travel to Sudan and enter the Faculty of Medicine for him Now, nearly 3 and a half years in Sudan, at first, he did not study because schools and universities were closed due to the Corona virus. Throughout this period, he did not study any year . After that, these bad conditions occurred in Sudan, and the airports were closed, and all internet networks floated, and because of the bad situation in Sudan. He is now trying to get out of Sudan and go to receive his university education in Egypt, but this is difficult because my uncle's financial situation is not good enough, he needs money to be able to travel to Egypt, and also in light of the closure of the airports, it is more difficult, but we are trying to get him out of Sudan for fear of him because the situation is not He is safe and, God willing, he will leave Sudan safely. Therefore, all these events negatively affect everyone, not only the people of this country, and it is possible that the residents of the country will bear this responsibility, but travelers and expatriates do not bear this. Because if there is safety, it will be the best countries.

    As a "leader" of my country, Tunisia, I wouldn't "pause" my aid provided by my country in Sudan. On the contrary, I would improve our funds. However, the military forces led by General Abd Fattah Al-Burhan should stop violence and illegal seizure of power. I would urge them to rule the country with democracy and avoid discontent. To Sudanese citizens, I exhort you to choose your leader, be brave, never be afraid to report, and never forget to claim your rights. For the other countries, I urge you to follow the need to help Sudan, save people and save children.

    If I were the leader of my country, I would not follow what America did. How could it stop aid to Sudan? As the leader, I will not stop donations, on the contrary, I will encourage them to donate and provide aid. I will tell the leaders to take care of your people, as it is their responsibility. There are many tips that I will give them, including: I will collect donations from people who are able to donate and present them to the people of Sudan, and I will make a large palace with many houses to take every family deprived of shelter home. Of course I will do this if you are the leader. I will tell other countries donate Imagine that you are in the place of the poor. Would you allow them to be mocked? Of course, do not put yourself in their place and feel their feelings. I will have a meeting with the leaders of other countries and talk about the problem of Sudan. When we get the money, you will not donate it to people who are not in need. The needy has more right to this money. Approximately I will raise more than a billion dollars a week, of course, because our people are generous, and this will facilitate the donation process.

    If I was the leader of my country, I would respond to the coup in Sudan by justifying the promises of the military law and their materialisation and want to know how the people of Sudan living, whether their democratic rights and lives are in danger are not. If the citizens are living peacefully, I would try to create pressure on America to resume is aid through the UN. I want to convince the World Bank to ease the restrictions over Sudan's military government to access its aid money for the country. And if I come to know that the current government is not materialising its promise, I would not stand beside them. I would also try to create more pressure along side America and other UN countries on them to hand over the power do the democratic parties.It entirely depends on their work towards the country and their citizens.

    Most importantly, As the "PIONEER" of Bangladesh, I have chosen to keep the guide in Sudan and even add more soldiers to help the country. Starting around 1988, Bangladesh has taken an interest in 54 peacekeeping missions in 40 distinct nations more than 5 landmasses with in excess of 175,000 formally dressed faculty, including more than 1,800 female peacekeepers. As of now, there are more than 7,000 soldiers and police sent in 10 missions(According to Information from the Armed Forces Division).

    My recommendation to Sudan Leaders is to accept the way of life of modesty, don't be apprehensive or too glad to even consider requesting help, assuming you truly need it, it will be given to you. With respect to the residents of Sudan, I ask you to be careful however valiant, don't be hesitant to express your real thoughts. For the remainder of the world, you can help Sudan by Giving to UNICEF, which is attempting to help the kids uprooted by the contention, and by giving to Save the Children, which has been working in Sudan beginning around 1984.

    I tell you, countries and their leaders, that what is happening in Sudan is not something normal, and that what is happening in it and what it faced from the Americans is an injustice to its people, and it must be helped and not boycott or increase aid from them. On our world and its policy, this iron must be melted and green grass must be planted in Sudan again and irrigated continuously..

    The first is to invest it in order to produce from it what is commensurate with the size of the needs by establishing factories and various businesses
    The second part will be spent on the most important obligations, such as providing food and medicine
    As for the last part, save it for emergencies

But we have armed forces that carry the homeland, many of which I will not prepare ... As an advice to the State of Sudan and its virtuous sons, that they should not be repeated To be in a state of {humility}, do not be ashamed to ask for help, and do not be afraid, you must take me your freedom, not yourself, but children must be for their parents to teach their children to be careful and trust themselves...

    Such a coup happened in many countries, and it will happen in many other countries, so we must take legal and humanitarian measures for Sudan and other countries. In a correct way to reach the people and not to any of the conflicting parties, such as their entry through international institutions from UNICEF, UNRWA, the Red Cross, or popular institutions that are neutral and independent from the parties involved in the conflict, to reach the people of Sudan, especially children, because they are the most affected category of wars. To provide them with food and medicine Security and safety are the responsibility of the whole world.

    Being world leader I would take some money (not too much that I would harm my country) and call a global leader meeting (assuming you can do that). I would then convince them to take money like I did to help Sudan. The other countries and I would use the resources and money to build a new economy and bring people to get rid of the coup. We would reinstall a government making sure there is an election and make sure that coup does not come back.

    * This plan does not involve war hopefully not because it would be most of the world against 1 military government.

    if I was a leader of a country, i would never "pause" aids to a war-torn country. I would continue to give $700m of aids to Sudan. The whole world today relies on its fellow countries for support. As Sudan was getting back on its feet and America made the big decision to freeze all of its aid. I believe that that was not right. i believe that first world countries like america that have the privilege of wealth, but often abuse it should be more compassionate to the struggles of other countries and offer their support more regularly.

I shall refuse not to give aid to the country because it is a small country and it will suffer largely if we stop its help. Therefore, I will hold a chat with the countries' leaders to find out what they are planning to do. Lastly, I shall tell all the other countries to also keep a close eye on them just if things go out of hand. So, if the situation goes wrong, it can be under control

    If I modified into a leader I may not ‘pause’ my price range however I may controls where they're headed. Maybe within the route of climate businesses or different much less violent establishments because of the fact as Sudan is extremely bad it needs funding but might be irreparably altered through the usage of someone who was all at once capable of access massive quantity of wealth and could misuse it.

    But I could also urge one of a kind nations to follow my lead and assist lots of those kinds of international locations - specifically Sudan due to the contemporary coup- financial useful useful resource with a view to try and understand a brand new governing device.

    However, you by no means apprehend what the state of affairs is for lots humans and organizations so I do no longer remember that America was totally within the wrong to be hesitant but they're although wrong for denying Sudan life-saving monetary help.

    Secondly, our military performance is well known to the world. Definitely I will send our cops for operating different mission in that country to maintain peace.

    I would like tell the leaders of the Sudan that you should not worry about anything for seeking help from our side, we are always trying to help the countries like you.

I was shocked that Sudan has become poor But according to my expectations, it has resources that some people will not have, but if I were a leader.... I would not make the poor need to feel any shortage, but the state of Sudan needs a great leader who does not understand after what happened to her that everyone would be surprised by her sudden behavior to build homes and hospitals for the needy Parks and also for people {with special needs} to build kindergartens, corridors, hospitals and picnic places for them to avoid feeling lonely.

    If I were in the place of the State of America, I would withhold aid from them, because this aid was aimed at facing the challenges of the transitional period and moving to the democratic path in order to achieve development and prosperity for the country, and now it is in the stage of a military coup against the democratic path.

    I think if we can create enough sources of money, we will be able to feed more people and save many lives.

    If I became a leader one day , I would work to achieve the demands of my civilian people and provide them with what they desire also I would cooperate with many associations to do this as I would allocate some of the budget of the State of Sudan 🇸🇩 to the salaries of civil employers then I would establish schools, universities, hospitals, clinics and private holy places . As you know , what I have just mentioned is a simple thing from the duties of the leader of his state 🇸🇩🇸🇩🇸🇩

    In fact, if you are a world leader, my opinion will certainly influence, so I would like to say to the new leaders of Sudan, that you should leave everything related to personal matters, or any disagreement that occurred between you, and think about the future of your country that has always contained you, try to find The solution, but in a calm way, stay away from everything that could harm you, or your country, I hope I made a difference, and thank you...

      That's an interesting point, pioneering_wilddog. You say that if you were a world leader, your opinion "would certainly influence". Can you explain why world leaders might be able to influence other leaders?

        In fact, we all know that changing a world leader's viewpoint is very difficult and almost impossible, but if the leader is convinced that his view is wrong, or completely incorrect, he can change it.

    If I was the leader of my country, I would not follow what America has done because Sudan is an uneducated poor country .pausing the aids lead to starvation and caused a lot of deaths . I want to help Sudan by providing the foundation of health and education because education will give awareness to local people to know right from wrong .education will help them to be independent and has their own products and this will decrease the amount of aids over time. I think other leaders will consider this because in this way we will save lives and minds.

    If I were the leader of my country, I would respond to the coup in Sudan by peaceful means, so let us take peaceful means because it is safer and more peaceful for the people . As for the coup in Sudan, I see that this is nothing but a simple misunderstanding, so we have to think of a radical solution that ends this coup as well as helping his people to solve their problems and satisfy them calmly without using violence . All regions of the world are subject to coups, but the beautiful thing about that is the ability to control the problem. Every problem has a solution. The more parties, the more problems. Therefore, unity and union are necessary. Unity is the right solution to end this coup. After today, we do not want to hear objections and protests. We only want to hear the voice of unity and peace.

    If I was the leader of my country, I would respond to the coup in Sudan by refusal because this led to the weakness of the state and therefore the people. Even if I am in America’s place, we have yes aid. This aid came in order to help the Sudanese face the difficulties of life until the economy recovers. Therefore, the new leaders should try to undo what they did, and all countries must help them and provide them with aid until Prosperity returns to this country

    If I were the leader of my country, I would begin with the word (poverty). We must unite to face the difficulties so that our country does not become the poorest country in the world. As long as our people are hungry and poor, I will not allow any aid to be stopped, whether from America or others, because if it stops, people will die of hunger. As a leader, I will not allow tyranny and injustice to my country, and I will provide them with jobs, education, security, safety, stability and adequate treatment. I will not allow anything illegal in my country. I will make sure that my people are equal and united under one flag.

    I If I was a world leader I would give motivating yet grave advice to Civilians in Sudan stating these few points:

    Prevent inflicting physical damage to people; Verbal protests will undoubtedly be what causes the coup to end.

    Stay safe,keep distance and prevent large protests; small protests will do the job.

    Set sights on your freedom from the military, do not prevail to them.

        The advice that I would give to Sudanese leaders is to persist in regaining control, but to prevent going into any physical harm. Also I would advise them to contact other countries for assistance, to increase the chances of seizing control again. Finally I would also advise them to stick with an inconspicuous profile to prevent any harm inflicted on them by the military.

    As the Leader of 'Bangladesh' I would respond to the coup of Sudan by sending military force(including medical and educational units) to help them as our country has a large armed force . Besides my advise to the leaders of Sudan would be to remove corruption and provide everyone what they are told to provide. Because when there will be corruption the people wont get what they are provided besides other countries will also have a bad impression towards them

    If I were the leader of my country, I will promise you that I will make different parties in the country because when there is more than one opinion, the possibility of solving the problems that the society encounters in its various forms increases because many ideas have different solutions to different problems.

    The second promise will be that I will increase job opportunities for women in all businesses, because this is a development of the economy, and because this increases success and different ideas, because women, by the nature of their thinking, are different from men, this increases the inventions that work on developing the economy of the country.

    If I became a leader for my country, and I was a real leader, I would not run away from confrontation, and it is necessary to learn good communication if it was embarrassing for me, and I would learn good communication for reactions, in order to know the needs of the society or the state, but the emphasis is that leadership does not mean that I keep orders and omit self-interest Rather, I will lay out a strategic position for the laws of the entire country, towards its goals, and have a positive impact on those around it, and lead them to success, and to coordinate everything with supervision, motivation, and division of roles and in terms of organizing everything, and to differentiate between what I know and do not know and to clarify the roles for my country And I will do all the experiments so that my country becomes in the highest rank and its banner is elevated.

    If I was the leader of 'England',I would respond to the coup in Sudan by sending many military troops and intensive care unit to help them as this will make them be an armed country with the military forces.In addition,my second promise to the country will be do make many more occupations available for men and women as this will allow everyone to develop the country with their great minds working together.

    If I were a leader over my country, I would not follow what America did of cutting off aid , it is true that the revolutionaries are in control of Sudan, but this aid reaches them and I know this, and because they are in control, we must increase aid to Sudan , the talk is that the revolutionaries take what they can of this aid and disperse the rest , for the rest of the people, and this reduces the aid that reaches the people, for this reason I say we must increase aid, and I like to tell the leaders of Sudan not to depend on the aid that comes to them from other countries because it must make itself by itself and not by relying on others, and the advice that I will present it to the people of Sudan is their respect and appreciation for women, because they may carry some messages to the world and to rely on themselves by developing themselves, and I call on other countries to provide a lot of aid to Sudan, and to encourage their leaders.

    As the 'leader' of England, I would send medical equipment to the coup in Sudan as Sudan is one of the poorest countries in the world and they can't afford much medical equipment. Also, if I was the 'leader' of England I would be very rich and would have the power to by all these medical stuff so I would be a leader of generosity and share my power to the countries in need.

    If I were the leader of MY country, I would promise to apply all the laws issued by the government to me (the head of state) for equality between the president and the people because there are countries from which dozens of people die of hunger and racism (commit suicide) and they are concerned with high positions and high ranks

    My second promise would be that the system of government after me in the country is a republican system through elections, because I feel that the hereditary (monarchy) system has some of the people’s deprivation to express their opinion, and it results in military coups.. and I do not want this to happen.

    If I was the leader of my country, I would do many things to be a great leader. Although whoever competes to take power wants to be the president and promises the people many things and does not do them. As for me, if I am a leader, I will swear by my life to serve my people and give them everything They need it and this promise must be true and before I promise my people I must be honest and develop my country to become better and better and after taking power I will do everything I promised my people to do .

        The Sudanese government suffers from two parts of the people:
        Who says she saw all parties and supported. But some Sudanese, however, see it as a quota government, and consider that the priority is to treat their urgent problems, which are the deteriorating economic conditions and the high cost of living , which prompted many Sudanese to protest in recent weeks in several regions of the country, including the capital.
        Likely now the head of the "Sudan" I think it should not be biased for a particular, However, We must see the state from the inside, and the sponsorship of the affairs of the State. And take the lesson from previous generations and modify them, For example, the Ottoman state was one of the greatest and most of the countries, but has been destroyed by an unexpected, It is weakened from the inside,With her fortresses were strong and radied, but the inner side of us needs care too.

    If I would was the leader of Sudan I would give back power to the imprisoned Prime Minister and I would recognize the issues the general thinks are bad and decide if they are important. The military have a opinion that I would recognise but we need to protect the people and we need a civilian government.

    If I was I world leader I would try to calm them down and bring them back to a normal country again, for example i would find the a good leader/ become the leader of the country. But, my first approach to this would be, being polite to them and getting stronger and stronger until i can find the perfect time to take over. I would then implement all the same rules from my country and that would be that.

    If I was the leader of my country, I would respond to the coup in Sudan by that I will not help the United States, nor will I stop the fund, but I will help them further. I will send a contingent of them from my army to help and protect them. I want to tell their new leaders to listen to the voice of their people and fulfill what they want to say because these are the people who can develop your country. I want to tell the people of this country that we are with your aims to raise funds for food and medicine for those in Sudan. I want to say to other countries that please protest against the uprising in Sudan in your country which is happening in this country. You have to convince the people of Sudan that you are with them and give them funds. kindly work with a Sudanese group to bring emergency medical aid to Sudan. If you help them then they will help you.

    If you were the leader of the country of Mauritania, and by virtue of our relationship, it would be a great achievement for Sudan to achieve liberation from tyrants and to remove the nightmare of authoritarian dictatorship. As for aid, if there is what we can provide, we will provide it as much as we can, considering that we are a developing country, but moral support is also present. I say to the new leaders of Sudan that you must From fortifying what your revolution achieved with political actions and strong positions that count for you on the political level. My advice to the people of Sudan is to preserve the liberation you have reached and to work together to build a strong Sudan free of conflicts and to have the courage of opinion to preserve what you have achieved. As for other countries, you must Recognizing Sudan's right to change and providing support for what it needs, especially the international institutions, human rights and the United Nations
