Why is Obama Silent Over the New Congo War (tags)
The last Congo war that ended in 2003 killed 5.4 million people, the worst humanitarian disaster since World War II. The killing was directly enabled by international silence over the issue; the war was ignored and the causes obscured because governments were backing groups involved in the fighting. Now a new Congo war has begun and the silence is, again, deafening.
Rwanda in Peril, Ingabire and Ntaganda Behind Bars (tags)
The broadest context of this story is resource war for the mineral and fuel resources require to sustain advanced weapons manufacture and war. I keep reporting the details, but that is the broad context of ongoing repression and peril in Rwanda, and the ongoing holocaust in D.R. Congo.
The world turned its back on Rwanda in 1994? (tags)
Paul Kagame has been blackmailing the Western world for "turning its back on Rwanda" in 1994 ever since, but this 1994 news clip reports that he actually threatened to fire on UN peacekeepers as though they were enemy combatants, if they tried to stand between him and his Rwandan Patriotic Front Army and the government's Rwandan Army.
Africa advocates to Obama; don't recognize Kagame election (tags)
President Obama said, in his 2009 speech in Accra, Ghana, that America should support strong institutions and not strong men. However, in the case of Rwanda, this has been no more than rhetoric. Rwandans, like most Africans, cheered Obama’s election, hoping that it might signal a new, more peaceful and cooperative relationship between the U.S. and Africa, but Obama has expanded AFRICOM, the U.S. Africa Command, and now he remains silent as Rwanda’s strongman, President Paul Kagame, prepares a sham presidential election to retain his brutal grip on power.
Haiti Earthquake: Capitalism, Occupation and Revolution (tags)
The earthquake that wrecked the capital of Haiti and surrounding areas on January 12 produced human tragedy of almost unfathomable proportions. It has been termed “the most destructive natural disaster in modern times.” Five months later, Haiti is no longer in the headlines or on the nightly TV news, but for the hard-hit Haitian population the scene has hardly changed. Now a new disaster is in the making as the hurricane season begins. This was a calamity made by capitalism: the earthquake was predictable and was predicted; the inferior construction methods are the result of Haiti’s poverty, and the swollen slums were the result of U.S. policies that have destroyed Haitian agriculture, forcing peasants off the land. On top of everything, Haiti is under imperialist occupation: Washington makes sure it has ultimate control of the strategically placed island, as it has throughout the Cold War and since. Haiti's devastation is not the result of “natural” causes or even “neo-liberal” policies – it is the product of the oppression of this semi-colonial country by the imperial masters ever since black slaves rose up to abolish slavery and throw out the colonialists two centuries ago. No new “economic model” can resolve this: what’s required is a new Haitian Revolution, a workers revolution overthrowing capitalism throughout the Caribbean and extending into the heart of imperialism.
Museveni and Kagame attack independent press (tags)
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and Rwandan President Paul Kagame are attacking independent press amidst increasing strife and deadly violence, which many charge the Museveni and Kagame governments are themselves responsible for.
Green Party banner over Rwanda (tags)
By giving democratic forces in Rwandan an internationally recognizable banner to rally round, the international Greens have helped Rwandan Greens kick a hole in the huge and hugely evil IMF/World Bank/U.S.-U.K. State Department/Rev. Rick Warren lie about Paul Kagame's Rwanda, and, about the covert U.S. War in Central Africa---the most lethal, but least understood, conflict in the world.
Rwandan President Paul Kagame questions Euro justice (tags)
Rwandan President Paul Kagame now questions the fairness of the International Criminal Court, and, says, without naming names and countries, that most people who organized the "Rwandan Genocide" are outside Rwanda's borders.
