Real Terror

And real terrorists.

A war of information and dis-information is raging. Kony the Beast's camps were raided. It is almost certain that they were empty, but what the hell. The soil was bombed. Quite unlike what is happening in Gaza at the moment. Shrug...!

Anyway, the beast, having not drawn blood for years (not sure of that, or at least, it hasnt made it into the news here,) has decided to go on a spree of massacres. Now it is not Ugandans. No, it is the long hurting Congo (DRC) people.

What we are hearing of the conflict is, well, slanted. But interesting. The government paper tells of the rebels who have been killed. The 'Independent' paper tells us of the massacres that are ongoing. Oh well....!

Massacre: Kony slaughters 45 in church

Suspected Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebels on Friday hacked to death 45 civilians in a church in the DR Congo, bringing the number killed in the central African country and South Sudan to 90 in four days, an aid agency and military officials have said. The army yesterday said it had followed the rebels and killed 13 members of the rebel unit behind the church massacre.


Most of the 45 civilians cut with pangas and clubs inside a catholic church, about 10km south east of Doruma in northeastern DRC, were women, children and the elderly, an aid agency official who did not want to be named for security reasons told Daily Monitor yesterday.


He said the civilians could not flee following suspected LRA rebel attacks on Christmas Day. Doruma is about 80km from the DRC border with the Central African Republic. “Bodies of women and children, with deep cuts are littered inside and outside the church,” the aid official said. “The residents have fled the place and are in Dungu where they expect protection from the DRC government.”


The spokesman for the allied forces, Capt. Chris Magezi, yesterday confirmed the massacre via satellite telephone link from DRC but added that the army yesterday directly engaged the rebels, killing 13 of them.

Watching the CNN documentary 'Bloody Murder' by Christiane Amanpour, a sudden realization engulfed me: Man is the greatest enemy of Man.
The Khmer Rouge massacre, the Holocaust, the Rwandan massacre etc were caused by Man.
I do not want to sound like a pessimist (just a realist), I do not believe that the 'spirit of 2009' is here to end all the problems that were formented before its arrival.
The question is: Who will save Man from Man?
