The United Nations has bumped up the crisis level today after officials found mass graves in the country—a sign that clashes are dangerously close to all out civil war.

The U.N. has ordered an increase in peacekeeping troops to South Sudan, and the U.S. has stepped up efforts to evacuate American citizens there. What do you think of the escalating situation and what can be done about it?
