DR Congo: The Forgotten War

The New York Times Bloodshed in Congo: The Forgotten War
More than three million people have lost their lives in central African wars in recent years while the world has stood by doing virtually nothing. Now
the slaughter is set to escalate once again. In an effort to prevent free elections in the Congo and secure its ongoing plunder of natural resources, Rwanda is doing its best to aggravate clashes among local militias.
A very good article from the New York Times, on the situation in Congo (DRC), and the nefarious effects of Rwandan interventionist habits on the plight of the Congolese people. It is definitely not all-encompassing, but it is as complete as any article can be. I submit it here to receive comments, and criticisms, so we can get somewhere with the discussion on how to resolve the problem in this country of crucial importance to the development of Arica as a whole.
