Does America embrace and invite mass murderers to the White House? Does America act the see-hear-speak-no-evil role hoping that Americans will not know or notice?
Mass killers who are not our friends, we can denounce them, fund and support their opponents, and, finally, we can get rid of them. Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, Libya’s Kaddafi, and even Osama bin Laden come to mind as examples.
What about our allies such as the African Great Lakes’ trio: Paul Kagame of Rwanda, Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, and Joseph Kabila of the DRC, who, between them, have slaughtered over 10 million people? Americans do not hear about these dead or about the unspeakable violence such as gang raping four-year-old little girls. Why?
Trio Kagame/Museveni/Kanambe: United to slaughter and rape in DRC
The head of this trio is Paul Kagame. He helped Yoweri Museveni seize power in Uganda (1980-1985); he led the murderous invasion from Uganda to seize power in Rwanda in 1994; and, in 1996, he masterminded the invasion of a sovereign country, Zaire (DRC), and, since then, the occupation of eastern DRC for land and the illegal exploitation of the DRC’s resources.
The mastermind Paul Kagame who smiles “when he is killing or seeing people killed”
In DRC in 2001, as revealed now by Major Dr. Theogene Rudasingwa and General Kayumba Nyamwasa, Kagame’s former RPF (Rwandan Patriotic Front – the Tutsi rebel movement from Uganda that took power in Rwanda in 1994) companions, Kagame ordered the killing of Congolese president Laurent Kabila (who was used as a front for the invasion of Zaire in 1996) and he installed as president a 29-year-old intelligence officer of his RPF movement by the name of Hyppolite Kanambe, cover name “Joseph Kabila”. Though the world calls him “President Kabila”, according to a French official, the diplomats in Kinshasa, the capital city of the DRC, refer to him as “le petit rwandais“ (the little Rwandan).
Rwandan Genocide Hero or Villain?
The evidence shows that Americans were bamboozled in 1994 by Kagame who, it turns out, was actually the trigger of the Rwandan genocide instead of the hero who stopped it.
The tell-telling evidence is coming both from his fellow high-ranking officers like
General Kayumba Nyamwasa ; Colonel Patrick Karegeya (assassinated in South Africa by Kagame this past January 2014), and Major Dr. Theogene Rudsingwa; and from his low-ranking officers such as Second Lieutenant Aloys Ruyenzi, Lieutenant Abdul Ruzibiza, and Intelligence Officer Jean-Pierre Mugabe. All have stated that President Kagame planned and ordered the shooting down of the plane carrying two heads of state, Rwanda’s Habyarimana and Burundi’s Ntariamira, which triggered the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
From 1990 to 1994, Paul Kagame participated and ordered the killing of Rwandan people in Rwanda, including Tutsis like himself. In fact, Kagame is a mad mass murderer who “enjoys” killing, as one of his body guards for 10 years, 2nd Lieutenant Aloys Ruyenzi, has given an eyewitness account:
“Kagame can spend a whole month without smiling… He is a bloodthirsty person. When I worked with him, he would go very early in the morning to visit detention places of DMI2 to sometime supervise killing. I recall once in Muhura when we were fighting to capture Kigali, he personally went on a 12.7mm AAC (anti air craft) mounted on a jeep of his escort and sprayed bullets on a peaceful market crowd of peasants gathered on a market place. It was in 1994. He then ordered his soldiers to use all available weapons and shell the market. It is very saddening to see a leader getting involved in massacring people in a market, while sarcastically laughing. The few times you will ever see him smiling is mainly when he is killing or seeing people killed”.
Kagame Has Also Run Crematories in Rwanda a la Adolf Hitler:, Ruyenzi continues:
“…I saw him personally instructing for the digging of mass graves for people who had been massacred in Byumba, Muhura and Murambi. Later, he ordered their removal
and to be taken to crematory centres in Gabiro, Nasho, Masaka, Nyungwe, Kami, Gitarama military barracks and Mukamira. At times, people would be packed alive into lorries and be taken directly to the above places to be executed on the spot”.
Americans investigators also uncovered Kagame’s crimes going back to 1994. Examples are The Gersony Report by Robert Gersony, the Information Memorandum for Secretary of State Warren Christopher by then-Assistant Secretary of State for Africa George Moose, Christian Davenport and Allan C. Stam’s “What Really Happened in Rwanda”, and The Accidental Genocide by Peter Erlinder. Add to these Suisse’s Carla Del Ponte’s Memoirs and Australia’s Michael Hourigan’s Affidavit.
So, how many millions more Paul Kagame has to kill before America and the world stops him from killing anymore? How many millions a mass murderer must kill for our world to decide that he has killed enough and we are not going to allow it any longer?
Kagame’s toll has surpassed that of Adolf Hitler. As the New York Times wrote in 2010 in “Congo killing fields worse than holocaust“, 6.9 millions have died in DRC alone; and, when extrapolated to today, over 8 millions have died in DRC alone. Add to this the 500,000 Hutu and Tutsi refugees and Zairians slaughtered in 1996 to 1998, the 550 to 800 thousands of mostly Hutus and moderate Tutsis slaughtered in 1994 in Rwanda, and the over 200,000 Congolese soldiers and civilians killed by Joseph Kabila throughout DRC and you get a total of nearly 10 million lives destroyed by Paul Kagame, Yoweri Museveni and Joseph Kabila.
This trio’s culpability is amply documented in the October 1, 2010’s UN “Report of the Mapping Exercise Documenting the Most Serious Violations of Human Rights and International Law Committed within the Territory of the Democratic Republic of the Congo between March 1993 and June 2003“. The crimes detailed “…in this report reveal a number of inculpatory elements that, if proven before a competent court, could be characterized as crimes of genocide.”
Finally, the U.S. Congress is waking up to Kagame’s criminality. Thus, Congressman Edward Royce, Chairman of House Foreign Committee wrote to Secretary of State John Kerry on March 11, 2014, requesting that he “reevaluate U.S. engagements with Rwanda and take into account these troubling actions when considering future assistance.”
What is America going to do about these three allies — Kagame, Museveni and Kabila/Kanambe — who are mass murderers and have been blackmailing the U.S. with two military bases and the service of their mass-rapist armies: invite them to the White House and fete and wine and dine them?
Can this America be silent and “look the other way” while this trio continues to slaughter and rape because of whatever we get from the DRC through their bloody hands when America could get it from Congolese themselves without people dying or little girls being gang raped?
