I agree. Cuz it's not just an African problem....it's EVERYBODY'S problem. And unfortunatley the propaganda that has spreaded about Africa since the onset of slavery has INTERNATIONALLY caused folks to think that Africans are much like welfare receipents[sp]. Or that they are trying to run games on African Americans when they enter America. Those are just some who were able to get away from the war torn continent...and you really don't know what their story is. And not everyone from Africa...

A group of 19 soldiers in the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) has defected in the Central African Republic in the largest mass defection from the notorious rebel group since 2008, American advocacy group Invisible Children said Tuesday. http://invisiblechildren.com The California-based NGO heralded the defection in a press release as a huge victory for African Union-led efforts against the LRA, and said the defection was “non-violent.” About 100 U.S. Special Forces experts are helping African...

There are two statements that make me wonder about this. The first I don't disagree with, the second (in light of the first) makes me wonder about good intentions and genuine concern being used. A commonality I've found among those who seriously discuss those issue continent wide are concerns (and outright distrust of most) of what's called R2P. The question raised is does R2P mean, Responsibility to Protect or Right to Punish? Whenever there's a call for U.S. (read formal colonial powers)...

Yep! This is correct. However, the world did notice the genocide in Rwanda. But by the time, they recognized what was going on hundreds of thousands were murdered and left on the streets decaying. I think Africa is a place where she has been raped and plundered by so many of the world that by merely reminding those of her still existence brings chills and guilt to those who have used her for wealth and power. It's much like slavery. It's been done and still goes on....but! Nobody, especially...

That is our problem: As a people, we are too nice to a fault! We should have immediately killed every single last one of them as soon as they stepped foot on our lands. The Japanese and Chinese weren't so nice, especially when they saw what was happening. Good for them! Unfortunately, the Japanese were eventually punished for not allowing foreign invaders to force Christianity down their throats.

I remember when I first read about Patrice Lumumba some years ago. He won the people's vote in a fair and square democratic election. However, the West didn't approve of him because of what Lumumba wanted for his people and country, which wasn't in the best interests of the West (USA and Europe). We all know what happens to leaders of sovereign nations (especially African) who go against the West. They end up dead.
