Kagame: Murderer of Millions in Congo and Rwanda

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by executive editor Glen Ford

In what may be the world’s most bizarre spectacle, notables from around the globe this year pay homage to Rwandan President Paul Kagame, as if he is the savior of Africa. “For 20 years, Kagame has posed as the soldier who stopped the Rwandan genocide, when all evidence and logic point to him as the main perpetrator of the crime.”

Rwanda’s Formula for Success: Murder Your Neighbors and Steal Their Wealth

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by executive editor Glen Ford

The New York Times touts Rwanda as a place of economic miracles, a country with almost no mineral resources that nevertheless plans to “leapfrog” straight to an information economy. What the Times fails to mention is that Rwanda’s relative prosperity is based on the extermination of its Congolese neighbors and the expropriation of their natural resources.

Rwandan Warlord Kagame Threatens Neighbors and UN Force

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

After almost two decades of killing Congolese with impunity, Rwandan President Paul Kagame, one of Washington’s favorite warlords, is threatening the United Nations and his neighbor to the east, Tanzania. Kagame told Tanzania’s president: “I will wait for you at the right place and I will hit you!” A Tanzanian official responded that Kagame “will be whipped like a small boy.”

Are African Union Peacekeeping Troops Really The Answer?

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

News reports this week tell us that African Union peacekeeping troops are on the way to the Central African Republic. But why are more men with guns the only aid African nations seem willing or able to offer one another? Why not doctors and medical schools, why not farming cooperatives, teachers and schools? And why is the US equipping and training the armies of more than 50 African nations?

Did Bloody Hands, Not Black Womanhood Sink Susan Rice Nomination?

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

Did Susan Rice step down on her own or did she do so at the insistence of the White House. Did Republican oppostion doom her nomination, or was the Obama administration too afraid to have such a bare knuckled champion of disaster capitalism and African dictators as Secretary of State, lest its real Africa policy be more closely examined?

16 Years of U.S. Genocide in Congo

 

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

The U.S. tells the world it can’t figure out how six million people died in the Democratic Republic of Congo – while Washington writes the checks and arms the perpetrators to the teeth. Like Mafia Dons pretending to be honest businessmen, successive U.S. administrations subsidize and direct the worst genocide since World War Two.

US Africa Policy Will Remain Imperialistic

 

by Abayomi Azikiwe

U.S. imperialism is escalating its aggressions around the world, especially in Africa. A system in general crisis tends to lash out in all directions.

Britain and America Target DR Congo

 

by Antoine Roger Lokongo

It’s now an “open secret” that the U.S. is plotting the dismemberment of the Democratic Republic of Congo, through Washington’s proxies Uganda and Rwanda. “This is not a Congolese civil war, but a continuation of a 16-year aggression by its two neighbors, financed and directed by the United States and Britain.”

A Second Wave of Genocide Looms in Congo, with Susan Rice on Point

 

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

Susan Rice is a woman of ghastly accomplishments: suppressor of the facts on genocide in Congo, and chief U.S. warmonger in Africa. Yet African American politicians rush to her defense, as a role model for young Blacks, especially women.

Humanitarian Coverup: Why is Obama Silent Over the New Congo War?

 

by Shamus Cooke

The United States is a silent partner in the latest bloodshed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, under siege by so-called M23 “rebels” controlled by U.S. allies Rwanda and Uganda. “It’s likely that the Obama administration will jump into action as soon as his M23 allies complete their military objective of regime change, and re-open the Congo’s military wealth to U.S. corporations to profit from.”

The Tragedy of Goma: Shame on UN and Rwanda’s Western Allies

 

by Theogene Rudasingwa

Rwanda and Uganda, Washington’s closest allies in central Africa, are embarked on the full conquest of their neighbor, the Democratic Republic of Congo. Following the capture of Goma, “Rwanda is now poised to take Bukavu in South Kivu, and most likely will be lured into DRC's tempting but dangerous belly, as far as the capital, Kinshasa.”

America and the Politics of Genocide in Africa

 

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

Uganda threatened to pull out of the dirty war in Somalia unless it was afforded continued immunity for its mass murders in Congo. Washington is the Big Daddy of both bloodbaths. Within days, Uganda backed down, since a “withdrawal from Somalia would amount to going on strike against its employer, the United States.”

A Profitable Genocide: Rwanda and Uganda Annex Eastern Congo

 

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

Another United Nations report has been leaked, documenting Uganda and Rwanda’s de facto annexation of the eastern Congo and complicity in a genocide that has claimed six million lives. “The blood of millions flows into the ground, while billions of dollars in minerals are extracted from the earth and delivered to their corporate customers – with Rwandan and Ugandan middlemen pocketing their cut.

Low-Intensity Warfare In Africa: The US "Policy Wonks" Behind Covert Warfare & Humanitarian Fascism, Part 1 of 2

by Keith Harmon Snow

From the 1980s to today, an elite group of Western intelligence operatives have backed low-intensity guerrilla warfare in certain African 'hotspots'. Mass atrocities in the Great Lakes and Sudan can be linked to Roger Winter, a pivotal U.S. operative whose 'team' was recently applauded for birthing the world's newest nation, South Sudan. Behind the fairytale we find a long trail of blood and skeletons from Uganda to Sudan, Rwanda and Congo.

Far from a Humanitarian Savior, the U.S. Causes Vast Misery In Africa

 

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

Americans want to believe their president when he poses as a humanitarian world leader. But Africa knows different. Literally millions have died and been displaced as a direct result of U.S. imperial strategies. “American policy in Africa is to create chaos, and then to present itself as the cure.”
