Relecture de la manifestation de Goma – LE PIEGE DE KAGAME


Des tracts venus de nulle part inondent Goma : ils sont destinés à attiser la haine entre ethnies congolaises car les Congolais n’ont pas la culture de la violence. Ces tracts "venus de nulle part" ont été imprimés à Kigali au moyen d'une ligne budgétaire du service de renseignement, d'action et de propagande à l'étranger, External Special Operation (E.S.O.).  Que Kagame prouve le contraire.

 

Les soldats rwandais, qui sont revenus du Soudan (Sud-Soudan) après la division de ce pays en deux parties, ont été envoyés à l’Est de la RDC pour renforcer les soldats rwandais qui s’y trouvaient déjà en appui aux rebelles de M23 issus du CNDP. La puissance de feu, le nombre subitement important des effectifs militaires engagés dans les hostilités contre les FARDC et l’aggravation de la situation sécuritaire dans le territoire de Rutshuru, province du Nord-Kivu, s’expliquent par cette présence massive des soldats rwandais revenus du Soudan et rapidement affectés à l’Est du Congo.

Le Rwanda est le principal responsable des dégâts matériels, des pertes en vies humaines et des graves violations des droits humains dus à l’action des mutins. Ce ne sont pas seulement les positions des FARDC qui sont prises pour cibles dans les tirs des soldats ennemis mais aussi les campements des éléments de la MONUSCO déployés sur le terrain pour maintenir la paix et protéger les populations civiles, conformément à leur mandat. A distance, le Rwanda est épaulé par les Etats étrangers et les firmes transnationales qui bénéficient des ressources naturelles pillées par le Rwanda à l’Est de la RDC mais il reçoit également le soutien des marchands d’armes à la recherche des foyers de tension pour liquider leurs vieux stocks.

"... When we consider the suffering and the scale of the atrocities in Congo, we cannot but recall our own 6 million victims of Nazi genocide. The "hear nothing, see nothing and do nothing" approach fails to fulfil the promise to "never again!" stand idly by while human beings are slaughtered. It denies justice to the victims and questions our very commitment to humanity ... "

" For far too long has the United States along with other multinational special interest Nations been deaf to the cries of the dying and survivors of this ongoing conflict, propositions have been drawn up to catch a general interest but always fall short on deliverance, instead these nations would rather back well documented war crime nations like Uganda and Rwanda with military supplies and training. Not only that but also fund the very genocidal factions themselves by purchasing mineral resources from their business fronts that funnel the money to keep them in their seats of power. It is time that United States government set the example for what honor, dignity, and humanity stand for by not turning a blind eye to this violence instead putting a foot down and standing firm against these War Criminals and see that they are put to justice in the correct fashion and that the U.S and other Nations help establish a peaceful ground for the people of this conflict to live on and flourish just as we had when we established this fine nation of ours. - Anthony Randal Moore "

Great Lakes of Africa Coalition Calls for U.S. Action to End Instability in the Democratic Republic of Congo

A United Nations Group of Experts report has documented the Rwandan government's support for rebel groups inside the Congo. Various media have reported that the United States Mission to the United Nations, headed by Ambassador Susan Rice had first attempted to block the report and after pressure has subsequently agreed to allow the publishing of the Group of Experts report. Reuters states that "the (UN) experts have implicated several high-ranking Rwandan officials who are directly involved." The U.N. material has been "verified by five separate sources," identifying Rwandan "officials supporting M23 as Defense Minister James Kaberebe; chief of defense staff Charles Kayonga; and General Jacques Nziza, a military adviser to Kagame." Kaberebe, according to this source, was "in constant contact with M23." In spite of the abundance of evidence demonstrating Rwanda's support of war criminals in the Congo, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the U.S. State Department refuses to hold Rwanda to account in spite of a U.S. Law that calls for withholding of aid to countries that destabilize the Congo.

Atrocities continue to mount in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where over 200,000 people have been displaced from their homes in the last three months as a result of attacks by rebel groups M23 and the National Congress for the Defense of the People (CNDP). Support of the M23 militia is only the most recent example of Rwanda underwriting rebellions that continue to devastate Congolese communities; this is the latest of many documented instances of such support. Worth noting are previous rebellions of the Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Congo-Zaire (AFDL) in 1996, the Rally for Congolese Democracy (RCD) in 1998 and the National Congress for the Defense of the People (CNDP) in 2006. It is telling that former members of the RCD like renegade general Laurent Nkunda formed the CNDP and that, today, former members of the CNDP and RCD, including indicted war criminal Bosco Ntaganda, are members of the M23 rebellion. These rebellions are not separate, internal rebellions as they are often reported, but are all related recurrences of foreign intervention by the Rwandan government.

According the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navy Pillay, "The leaders of the M23 figure among the worst perpetrators of human rights violations in the DRC, or in the world for that matter, and many of them have appalling track records including allegations of involvement in mass rape, and of responsibility for massacres and for the
recruitment and use of children."

While President Obama has long recognized that the DRC has been destabilized by neighboring countries, his administration has yet to get tough on those fueling the cycles of violence. The need to hold the DRC's neighbors accountable was part of the only law he sponsored as a senator in 2006:
PL109-456. Section 105 of that law gives power to the US Secretary of State to withhold aid from neighboring countries deemed to destabilize the Congo. US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton co-sponsored this law.

This legislation has been on the books for 6 years, but has yet to be fully implemented. The recent flood of evidence pointing to Rwanda's military aggression in the Congo calls for an enforcement of this law. In the United Kingdom,
more than 20 members of parliament have joined the call to suspend financial support to Rwanda in light of the content in the UN report implicating Rwanda in supporting rebels in the Congo. In accordance with its statutes, the US government should withhold any military, bilateral and multilateral budgetary aid until Rwanda permanently ceases its support of rebels in the DRC.

Given the
Obama administration's mass atrocities prevention directive, current violence in the Kivu provinces of the DRC tests the US government's political will to fulfill its promises and enforce its laws. Will the administration recognize the atrocities in eastern DRC and use the law Obama wrote to hold destabilizing parties responsible? Historically, economic sanctions have proven effective in curtailing Rwandan aggressions across the border. In late 2008, Sweden and the Netherlands suspended aid to Rwanda after evidence surfaced showing Rwanda's support of the CNDP rebel group.

The CNDP rebellion, parent to the M23 rebellion currently led by the International Criminal Court (ICC) indicted war criminal Bosco "The Terminator" Ntaganda, had been devastating eastern Congo, causing thousands of deaths and displacing over three hundred thousand people from their homes. As soon as aid was withdrawn, Rwanda arrested General Laurent Nkunda. With a law on the books requiring that the United States respond as Sweden and the Netherlands did, and as the second biggest donor to Rwanda providing nearly $200 million in aid annually, the US has the power to help stabilize the region or continue to underwrite those who are destabilizing it. In its position, the US has both tremendous leverage and responsibility to take action.

The international community failed Rwanda in 1994 when it did little to respond and help prevent genocide, and nearly a million Rwandans were slaughtered within three months. Aftershocks from that tragedy have been reverberating through the region ever since. Though Rwanda has stabilized significantly, it is still a time to respond to mass atrocity in the region, as more than six million civilians have perished in Congo since 1996, Rwanda's first documented invasion. The United States government must do its best to foster peace and reconciliation in the whole region, not just in Rwanda. This means not merely giving aid but doing due diligence; the best hope for a speedy end to the atrocities is for donor nations to begin withholding aid from governments who perpetrate instability in the region.

Please join the Great Lakes of Africa Coalition in urging the US government to take swift and decisive action in Congo. Call on Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, to help end the impunity in the Congo by enforcing Section 105 of Public Law 109-456.
