DRC: We Are All Responsible. We Should Feel Revolted and Do Something.

Posted on the 15 January 2014 by Therisingcontinent @Ambrosenz

Today Wednesday 15/01/14 leaders of the countries members of ICGLR are meeting in Luanda – Angola. One of the points on their agenda is the question of security in Eastern Congo.

We know that since October of last year the rebel group M23 backed by Rwanda and Uganda has been officially defeated by FARDC with the support of the International Brigade of Intervention attached to the MONUSCO peacekeeping mission.

This week too the chief of the UN mission in DRC, Martin Kobler, announced that he had evidence showing that remnants of M23 in the said two countries where they are presently have been recruiting new elements, probably for their next attack on Eastern Congo.

The scenario we see today has played for far too long. If people want different outcomes, something radically different needs to be tried.

Because of the strategic minerals DRC has, MONUSCO, as one of the major stakeholders to the more than two decades conflict in the region, appears as responsible of the ongoing insecurity as the militias killing civilians and raping Congolese women.

The radical attempt of solution to the crisis is to analyze all avenues to get MONUSCO out of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The history of UN peacekeeping missions tells us that since the inception of that UN structure, rare has been its successes.
