A new book, America’s Wars on Democracy in Rwanda and the DR Congo,  reveals how U.S. Presidents of both parties unleashed the CIA in the Congo to do the dirty work of greedy corporations, causing misery, mutilations and massacres of such magnitude they dwarfed even the wildest accounts depicted in Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness.

The Simba war of the 1960s set the groundwork for the Congo wars of the 1990s, which were instigated by U.S. proxy forces in Rwanda and Uganda who committed yet more atrocities.---

Kagame is actually one of the most outstanding mass murderers of our time.---

The Rwanda genocide is another case of history turned on its head by the aggressor and victor. Paul Kagame invaded Rwanda from Uganda with U.S. backing. The U.S. now backs Kagame's invasion and genocide in the DRC.

"When shall it be said in any country of the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive...when these things can be said, then may that country boast of its constitution and government."~ Thomas Paine"

Thanks for more information of the US crimes piling up higher than any nation ever before it. It has one choice, hold the year of jubilee party of Isaiah 25, (Sounds like good idea for all countries to hold from time to time.) when veil is lifted from all nation's eyes or continue to burn.
