EVERY DAY, THE WORLD MEDIA ARE BEATING THE DRUMS ON THE CRISIS IN UKRAINE, WITH PICTURES AND THE VOICE OF UKRAINIANS IN AND OUT OF UKRAINE WHERE NEITHER 50,000 NOR 10,000 HAVE DIED; YET, THE SAME WORLD MEDIA AND GOVERNMENTS KEEP QUIET AND ACTUALLY SUPPORT THE COUNTRIES AND THEIR DICTATORS WHO HAVE SLAUGHTERED OVER 8 MILLION INNOCENT PEOPLE IN THE CONGO.
As one listens and watches the world media these days, one would never believe that the worst crisis of our Era actually is taking place neither in Ukraine, nor in Syria, nor in Venezuela, nor in North Korea; but, that the worst crisis has been going on in Central Africa in the Congo (DR) where over 8 million innocent people have been killed by two neighboring countries: Rwanda, Uganda, and “Joseph Kabila”, and over 2 million innocent women and little girls as young as 4 years old have been gang raped and mutilated. You would never know it if you just landed on earth from planet Mars.
WORLD AND NATIONAL (US) MEDIA
Those media that report on Africa, their reporters in Africa are routinely paid off by the African dictators they report on. Almost ALL reporters of Western media in Africa take the money (it’s only Black Africans dying, anyway!). This is why they report “positive” things about these African dictators who murder African people or make the death of 8 million Africans “bearable”, negotiable, and not so urgent, not so despicable, not like the death of 100 Ukrainians.
One of the prices the reporters would pay of NOT reporting what these dictators want the media to say about them would be to be banned from reporting from the dictators’ countries. So, the rule of thumb is that any Western news organization that reports on African dictators and has access to them is being paid off. Period!
The BBC case
Case in point: as early as 2004, a BBC reporter who was bought by Kagame was exposed by a Rwandan Tutsi and soldier in Hitler Kagame’s army, Lieutenant Abdul Ruzibiza, who was a member of the commando unit that was sent by Kagame to shoot down Rwandan President Habyarimana’s plane, which triggered the 1994 Rwandan co-genocide. (This is why, in spite of the evidence, BBC has never forcefully exposed Kagame as the trigger of the Rwandan 1994 co-genocide. Neither has any major media outlet with reporters in these countries. There are tons of money for these reporters to make). If it were not for the corruption, these three African kings of slaughter and rape would have been arrested long time ago so that the people of Rwanda and the DRC would be in peace right now.
Lieutenant Abdul Ruzibiza, in his 2004 “Confession”, has a section he calls “The Secrecy Surrounding the RPF’s Crimes in Areas under its Control” [(keep in mind that today’s “Areas under Kagame’s control” include, beside Rwanda, the entire DRC using his Trojan Horse, “Joseph Kabila” – cover name –, an intelligence officer in Kagame’s army that invaded the DRC and commanded one of the deadliest units that slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Hutu refugees and Congolese in 1996-1998) – any foreign government or media that says otherwise is either corrupt, racist, or in league with African Hitler for the minerals, the military bases, or otherwise –] :
“The one major trickery, which the RPF (of Paul Kagame) will use for ever, is flatly denying its crimes, accepting them only when they are innocuous. In the more than 4 years of war (1990-1994 in Rwanda), the RPF allowed journalists in their zones only after ascertaining that at least they have a favorable opinion. Other journalists the RPF corrupted with fat kickbacks, like the one Hussein Abdou Hassan of the BBC. You could never have guessed whether this guy was an RPF soldier or a journalist from a respectable news organization like the BBC. The RPF invited journalists only at a time of its choosing, and showed them around only in selected areas, often warning them of a possible ambush or an on-going battle as a reason to stay off certain areas and reveal only what’s been carefully pre-choreographed. Many times journalists were driven around along the Ugandan border instead of going deep inside Rwanda, until they got tired and stayed overnight, not having covered more than one single kilometer from the border. This mastery of deceit kept the RPF’s lifeline going and prevented anyone from ever stumbling upon its horror scenes. The RPF also simply outfoxed the government in killing people and burning their bodies, then carefully dispersing their ashes in far-flung woodlands, removing any possible trace of the dead. Of course we know most of the areas where these macabre crimes occurred. It was simply out of question to surprise the RPF, since a special permission was needed prior to setting foot in their zones, and the scout officer had to carefully screen sites to visit.”
Why? Why the loud and sustained outrage over Ukraine, Syria, Venezuela, North Korea, and why NOT over the Democratic Republic of the Congo?
Another reason, beside corruption, was given in The Washington Post years ago, specifically on June 29, 2003, by Lynne Duke in an article titled “Whispers of Genocide and again, Africa suffers alone”:
“Many may be forgiven for believing it is about race and the lesser value that the United States places on African lives.”
Yes, it is about race, race, race, and the lesser value that the Western world places on African lives… and this was written by a white woman who went and saw, and… understood!
Rwanda and DRC case
World governments of the “Free World”, beginning with the United States (under Bill Clinton), are actually the ones that were behind the invasion and the occupation of the DRC in the first place. Bill Clinton armed and supported Rwanda and Uganda in their invasion of Rwanda to remove Habyarimana as a stepping stone (see Kagame’s letter below) to the invasion and occupation of the DRC for the DRC’s resources and land.
Below is Kagame’s letter showing that the final goal of the US (Bill Clinton), Museveni, and his invasion of Rwanda after he killed Habyarimana was not to stop any genocide – which he, Kagame, triggered with his killing of Habyarimana – but rather the ultimate goal was the invasion and occupation of the DRC (Thus, because Bill Clinton, the UN, and Tony Blair were supporting and covering up for Kagame and Museveni, BBC and the other major world media never published this Kagame’s letter or the evidence in the Gersony Report to expose Kagame’s killing of Rwandans and, later of Congolese):
“Dear Brother Jean Baptiste Bagaza, we have the greatest honour to extend our sincere gratitude to you both for your financial and technical support in our struggle that has just ended with the taking of Kigali.
“Rest assured that our plan to continue shall be pursued as we agreed at our last meeting in Kampala. Last week I communicated with our big brother Yoweri Museveni and decided to make some modifications to the plan. Indeed, as you have noted, the taking of Kigali quickly provoked a panic among the Hutus who fled to Goma and Bukavu. We have found that the presence of a large number of Rwandan refugees at Goma and the international community can cause our plan for Zaire to fail. We cannot occupy ourselves with Zaire until after the return of these Hutus. All means are being used for their return as rapidly as possible. In any case, our external intelligence services continue to crisscross the east of Zaire and our Belgian, British and American collaborators, the rest of Zaire. The action reports are expected in the next few days.
“Concerning the Burundi plan, we are very content with your work to ensure the failure of the policies of FRODEBU. It is necessary to paralyze the power of FRODEBU until the total ruin of the situation in order to justify your action that must not miss its target. Our soldiers will be deployed, this time, not only in Bujumbura, but in the places you judge strategic. Our elements stationed at Bugesera are ready to intervene at any moment. The plan for Burundi must be executed as soon as possible before the Hutus of Rwanda can organize themselves.
“In the hope of seeing you next time at Kigali, we ask you to accept, dear brother, our most respectful greetings”.
[The above letter was dated August 10, 1994, written by Paul Kagame and addressed to Jean-Baptiste Bagaza of Burundi. The letter was marked “confidential” and was uncovered among the documents of ICTR by chance by the legal assistant of Attorney Christopher Black, one of the lead counsels during ICTR’s Military II Trial in 2008. The translation is Mr. Black’s].
The importance of Kagame’s letter above as described by Lead Counsel Christopher Black when he exposed this letter on November 18, 2008 follows:
“The importance of this letter if you have grasped it fully cannot be overstated. It means the attack on Rwanda from 1990 was not the prime objective of Kagame and his collaborators. Zaire was always theprime objective. That their excuse for the attack on Rwanda about establishing democracy and return of refugees, was completely false. That the invasion from Uganda had only one purpose: to clear the path through Rwanda to Zaire. That the return of refugees, as many witnesses have stated, was not for humanitarian reasons, but to clear the path for the invasion of Zaire. It means that the Americans, British, particularly with Kagame and Museveni, planned the invasion of Zaire [sic] in 1994, probably before that. It means that the excuse given for the invasions of Congo since this letter was written to clear the ‘Interahamwe’ or ‘genocidaires‘ is completely false. No mention is made of ‘Interahamwe’. No mention is made of ‘genocide’. It means, since this was received, it looks like a date stamp of this tribunal, 8th December 1994, that the Prosecutor of this Tribunal has been hiding information indicating a conspiracy to commit a war of aggression against Congo-Zaire, Zaire and all of the war crimes have flowed from it since and the continuation of those wars in Congo now begun 14 years ago, if not longer. And that the principal parties are the principal parties stated in this letter. It indicates that the prime target, Hutus in Rwanda and Burundi, that they want to suppress the Hutu population in order to carry out their plan. Democracy was never their concern. And it indicates that the Prosecutor was in — had information in a territorial and temporal jurisdiction of this Tribunal under rule — under Statute-Article 1. That they are also concerned with war crimes committed in neighboring states.
“So, here you have the smoking gun, the letter, planning the invasion of Zaire with the Americans and British. And it confirms our theory all the way through this trial that the Belgians were involved with those other countries. And again, there must be — and this, as a colleague pointed out, is page 8 of 12. So where are the other eleven pages of — what other letters do they have in their hands? And again, it indicates that these men have been stitched up, falsely accused, in order to clear them out of the way so this plan can take place. If this is published in the New York Times or Washington Post, the whole picture of the war in Rwanda and the wars in Congo would change.
“So I ask the Prosecutor, once again, where is that file? And in fact I would like them to produce the indictment against Kagame 9 because I want to see what he’s been charged with, exactly what crimes and where. So, again, I ask for this file to be produced and I ask why they have not acted. Mr. Jallow and Louise Arbour and everybody else have been protecting the RPF which has now resulted in millions of deaths in the Congo and continues up till today and what is going on in Congo now.
“And I state openly that the Prosecution office is complicit with this invasion of Congo and is responsible themselves for all those murders in Congo because they’ve hidden this for a long time and they could have exposed it many years ago and stopped the invasions.
“If the international community, that is, other than the United States and the Britain, had been aware of what was going on, it would never have taken place. But they sit there and they accuse us, my client, andthe other officers here of committing crimes, they knew what they were doing in Zaire. I don’t think they can even shave and look in the mirror in the morning.”
And, as Kagame, Museveni, and “Joseph Kabila” have killed millions of Congolese, the West, in the words of an American diplomat, “has looked the other way” even while 4-year old little girls have been gang raped and mutilated. Just as the governments of the West have “looked the other way”, so has their media. Except, here and there, an article without any sustained drumbeat calling for the sacking of the dictators, a report, all being ignored by the Western governments.
A sample of the reporters who have written about these atrocities that have been ignored by the leaders of the West, beside The Washington Post’s “Whispers of Genocide…” mentioned above: The Heraldscotland staff’s “West’s Involvement in Congo Suffering” of 22 November, 2008; Nicolas Kristof’s New York Times’ “Congo Killing Fields Worse than Holocaust” of 6 February, 2010; Johann Hari’s Independent of London’s “Congo’s Tragedy: The War the World Forgot” of 5 May, 2006; Eve Ensler’s Glamour Magazine’s “Women Left for Dead – and the Man Who’s Saving Them” of 1 August, 2007; Lorette C. Luzajic’s WordPress.com’s “The Coltan Miners’ Slaughter: The Congo Holocaust(s) for Absolute Beginners” of 23 October, 2009; David Patterson’s “Peter Erlinder Jailed by One of the Major Genocidaires of our Era” of 17 June, 2010…
In the United States, while the government and Hitler Kagame’s supporters lie about FDLR and so-called Hutus who want to attack – but never do – Rwanda, it was actually a former US diplomat, Herman Cohen, who stated the obvious, in a guest piece, titled “Can Africa Trade Its Way to Peace?”, 12/16/2008, in the New York Times:
“And from 1996 to today, the Tutsi-led Rwandan government has been in effective control of Congo’s eastern provinces of North and South Kivu. This control has been maintained through intermittent military occupation and the presence of Congolese militias financed and trained by the Rwandan Army.
During these 12 years of Rwandan control, the mineral-rich provinces have been economically integrated into Rwanda.”
[Indeed, any one who knows a little Geography and looks at the sizes of Rwanda and the DRC, would conclude that Rwanda could NEVER be in “effective control” of Congo’s Kivus without controlling, first, the DRC government, which Kagame does through his Trojan Horse, his agent “Joseph Kabila”]
[Imagine Barack Obama continuously meeting and joking with Osama ben Laden after the latter killed the 3,000 Americans on 9/11… This is what “Joseph Kabila” does by meeting with Hitler Kagame… All reports have shown that Kagame has slaughtered millions of Congolese. “Joseph Kabila”, former officer in Kagame’s army, consults regularly with him on how to perpetuate Kagame’s control of DRC… And the West and their media, pretend that “Joseph Kabila” works for the DRC. Who’s the FOOL?]
Due to the fact that these dictators are supported by Western governments and even former heads of governments (i.e. Hitler Paul Kagame is supported by the US and British governments and others, with Tony Blair now his paid lobbyist and Bill Clinton his partner and friend), another CONSEQUENCE for any reporter who dares to expose the truth is death by poisoning (i.e., the BBC African reporter Komla Dumor – Just check what he was working on and who he interviewed before his sudden death -, in DRC, Rwanda, and Uganda, many reporters have met the same fate, sometimes by assassination with bullets, what an American reporter called “a heavy dose of lead”, when he wrote about “Joseph Kabila” as if this dictator was Al Capone, in the way he kills anyone who he suspects to be a potential enemy or opponent while the West “looks the other way”).
Thus, these dictators (Kagame, Museveni, Kanambe-Kabila, and others) feel free to kill and to silence any opposition because the Western governments have given them carte blanche to do so while actually giving these killers more money (it’s only Black Africans dying, anyway!); these same Western powers that raise Cain when 100 Ukrainians are killed while hypocritically shouting about crimes against humanity and oppression when it comes to nations like Syria, North Korea, Venezuela, and others.
Freedom and independence on the part of BBC and the rest of the world media would have exposed Kagame, Museveni, and Kabila-Kanambe long ago. Not only because there is a mountain of evidence from official and global institutions like the UN and others on the crimes that they have committed, but because even small media outlets, independent reporters, lawyers, and investigators have detailed these atrocities. Yet, BBC and the other media keep repeating ad nauseum the same lies and falsehoods that were made up by Kagame and his associates in 1994 – 2001 when they had the direct backing of the Western governments in their invasion of Rwanda and of the DR Congo.
Today, Kagame’s own pals who have defected have detailed his crimes (Dr. Rudasingwa, General Kayumba, General Karegeya – now assassinated by Kagame,…), including even his subalterns (Abdul Ruzibiza, Aloys Ruyenzi,…). This evidence from those who worked with or worked under Kagame is backed by the mountains of UN evidence and even the evidence uncovered during the ICTR trials; evidence such as The Robert Gersony Report, the Michael Andrew Hourigan Affidavit, George E. Moose’s “Human Rights Abuses in Rwanda”, Carla Del Ponte’s Memoirs, Christian Davenport and Allan C. Stam’s “What Really Happened in Rwanda”, and International Lawyer and Professor Peter Erlinder’s The Accidental Genocide. Therefore, NO world media, government, or entity has any excuse to continue to praise Kagame or to not expose him for his crimes, atrocities, and holocaust in the Congo, beginning with his assassination of the Rwandan democratically elected president, Juvenal Habyarimana, which was done by Kagame in order to trigger a conflict that allowed him, with Bill Clinton and Museveni’s help, to take over power in Rwanda, in preparation for their invasion of the DRC.
Corruption, corruption, and corruption of BBC and the other major media shame this generation, our generation, especially when both these media and the governments of these countries, KNOWING THE EVIDENCE, keep quiet over the crimes and holocaust while propping up these three African kings of slaughter and rape, namely Hitler Paul Kagame, his partner Yoweri Museveni, and Kagame’s Little Hitler in DRC, Hyppolite Kanambe (cover name “Joseph Kabila”), Kagame’s Trojan Horse in DRC.
Thus, the billions of dollars that Hitler Kagame, his associate Museveni, and Little Hitler “Joseph Kabila” (real name Hyppolite Kanambe), these three African kings of slaughter and rape, have made from the Congo’s resources through the blood of over 8 million innocent Congolese, these billions of dollars they have shared with the Bill Clintons, the Tony Blairs, the mining companies, the hundreds of other Western politicians they have bought, including the media (BBC and others). To the US, Hitler Kagame has blackmailed with two military bases in Rwanda in order to keep the Pentagon looking the other way while Hitler Kagame slaughters millions of Congolese.
[There is NO CONGOLESE on this picture. Yet, Ban ki Moon, the world media and the Western governments play Hitler Kagame’s game in identifying as “president of DRC” Hitler Kagame’s former army subaltern, Commandant Hyppo (Hyppolite Kanambe), cover name “Joseph Kabila”, no matter the evidence exposing the set up, no matter the cries of the Congolese people to “send him back to Rwanda”, and no matter the thousands of the Congolese he has slaughtered...]
How sad, how sad, how sad that Obama-Hollande-Merkel-Cameron are still keeping quiet over the Congo holocaust as if they have partaken of the Billions made from the Congolese innocent blood… How sad…
