The mines of king... Museveni Congo-Kinshasa: Congo Protests Museveni Threat: "HE foreign minister of the DR Congo on Wednesday summoned a Ugandan diplomat in Kinshasa to lodge a protest against a threat of military intervention by Ugandan troops on Congolese territory.

Raymond Ramazani Baya told the Ugandan charge d'affaires, Big Jackson Ocana, that comments made by President Yoweri Museveni in Kampala were 'totally unacceptable' and 'particularly unfriendly', AFP, a French news agency, said.

The ministry said in a statement it had lodged 'the government's surprise and strong objection to the threats from the highest levels in Kampala with regard to the presence of Ugandan rebels in the DRC.'"
It was about time that Congolese diplomacy grow a backbone. I mean who allows a country to invade its territory twice in a row, be condemed for it in an International Court of Law, and threaten to invade it again? Pres. Museveni Kaguta needs to stop eyeing the lucrative mines of the morth of the Congo, because he has already stolen enough, and killed enough people! He should be focusing on paying the Congo the damages she was awarded - and he cannot go steal more Gold from the Congo to pay us with our own money! Additionally, he should stop disowning people that he supported:
THE Minister of State for Defence, Ms Ruth Nankabirwa, has dismissed claims that Uganda trained and armed the recently indicted Congolese warlord, Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, currently in the International Criminal Court cells on war crimes charges.

"He came here and once met with President Yoweri Museveni not for (armed) support but advice," Nankabirwa said on Monday.

"Given the President's experience in regional issues, he advised them to talk with the Kinshasa government."" (New Vision)
Fess-up to your mistakes, Mr Museveni, and stop thinking of yourself as some newborn King Solomon who would have rights over the entire Great Lakes' wealth! I am done venting, and I am still wondering...
