Congo’s M23 conflict: Rebellion or resource war?..Congo 20 million dead and the role the US and its allies played
M23 rebels in DR Congo have threatened to march to the capital and depose the government. UN reports confirm that rebels receive support from key US allies in the region, and Washington’s role in the conflict has become difficult to ignore.
Instability, lawlessness and violence are nothing new to those who live in the troubled eastern regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. An estimated 6.9 million Congolese have perished since 1996 in a spate of ceaseless military conflicts that have long gripped this severely-overlooked and underreported region. In late November 2012, members of the M23 rebel group invaded and took control of Goma, a strategic provincial capital in North Kivu state with a population of 1 million people, with the declared purpose of marching to the nation’s capital, Kinshasa, to depose the ruling government.
M23′s president, Jean Marie Runiga, later agreed to withdraw only if the ruling President Joseph Kabila listened to the group’s grievances and adhered to their demands. Rebel leaders have threatened to abandon peace talks unless Kinshasa signs an official ceasefire, a demand the government dismissed as unnecessary.
Kinshasa called on M23 to respect previous agreements to withdraw 20km outside of Goma in a move to prevent the region falling back into war after two decades of conflict, fought largely over the DRC’s vast wealth of copper, cobalt diamonds, gold and coltan.
CONGO 20 MILLION DIE AND THE WORLD SILENT: The role that the America/Israel and its allies, Rwanda/Uganda, have played in the greatest humanitarian crisis at the dawn of the 21st century..The footprints of the West are also quite prominent in some of the worst cases of misrule in Africa. The West killed Lumumba and installed Mobutu. How many years and people did the Congo lose? It decapitated Nkrumah’s regime. How many years and the people did Ghana lose? It waged a war against Angola through UNITA. How many years and people did Angola lose? It prolonged Apartheid in South Africa. How many years and people did South Africa, Angola, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe lose? It Installed Idi Amin in Uganda. How many years and people did Uganda lose? It installed Kagame in Rwanda and Kagame has plunged the Great Lakes Region into war with 8million dead. How many years and more people will that region lose? We have yet to know how Libya turn out. But Libya was one of Africa’s best countries if not the best. Gaddafi’s head is barely on his shoulders. How many years will Libya lose? The west invaded Ivory Coast and installed pupet as a leader how many more people will Ivorians lose?,U.S train military to topple democratic government in Mali for Al quida to invade mali how many people Mali will lose?What exactly is the monetary value of these costs to Africa?
if you dont know about the congo and the murder and rape of millions then its time..you are probabaly using the spoils of this war/massacre via your smart phone..and thats the sad evil truth..
