Out of Africa: troops to Africa, Obama sends a letter

This may be the worst idea since Vietnam - the Obama sends the Speaker a letter that he's sent 100 service personnel to the hell of Africa (Uganda, South Sudan, DRC, and the Central Afr. Rep.) (WTF is Odinga?) *hm* to take the leader of the LRA "off the battlefield" -

Big Peace: "Uganda, LRA, And The ‘Christian’ Lie"

Joseph Kony, the monstrous leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Uganda, a group possibly more despicable than Hitler’s nazis, has apparently been targeted by the Obama administration. News broke on October 14th that 100 US troops were being sent to track Kony down. The meme that is being floated in the liberal media is that Kony is a radical Christian protestant. Obama’s apparatchiks might attempt to advance that meme as much as possible for political advantage against the Christian right. There’s a small problem with it. It’s a lie. (...) >>>

NRC: "Zimbabwean authorities "institutionalised trade in blood diamonds""

The Mozambican town of Vila de Manica is thriving thanks to the trade in illegal Zimbabwean diamonds. (...) Maguwu calls the Marange stones ‘blood diamonds’, because the local population is being put to work to mine them. "Forced labour," he said. They are taken through the mountains or just across the border crossing to buyers such as Jesus. (...) >>>

Breitbart: "Witnesses to Kenya election violence threatened"

The tribal warriors planned to hurl grenades into a camp of displaced people during Kenya's horrific postelection violence two years ago, but a tip to police aborted the attack, saving lives but ruining the tipster's. Ken Braziz, who says he warned police of the attack planned by a tribe with whom he and his wife were aligned, is now in hiding with help from human rights groups after receiving numerous death threats. (...) The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court believes crimes against humanity were committed during the violence that killed more than 1,000 people and forced 600,000 from their homes in Kenya. International Criminal Court judges are considering prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo's request for permission to investigate. But if witnesses like Braziz are terrorized into silence, justice might never be done.

The fighting in late 2007 and early 2008 began amid allegations of fraud as President Mwai Kibaki, the incumbent running against challenger Raila Odinga, suddenly took the lead in ballot counts. Violence erupted along tribal lines, exposing frustrations over poverty, corruption and ethnic rivalries in a country where Kikuyus—Kibaki's tribe—are perceived to dominate others, including the Luo, Odinga's ethnic group. Braziz took a rare step by informing police to avert attacks before they happened. An ethnic Luhya who supported Odinga, Braziz said he witnessed other Odinga supporters recruiting, arming and transporting fighters to attack Kikuyus in the town of Eldoret in the Rift Valley.

TRP: "Africa Must “Dislodge” Mugabe: Kenya PM"
Citing a hyper-inflation rate of 231 percent and rampant cholera outbreak, Kenyan PM Raila Odinga has called on fellow African nations to “dislodge” Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe from power in Zimbabwe. “The crisis in Zimbabwe has now reached a point where further lack of action by the African Union and the international community will constitute nothing less than a crime against humanity,” said long-time Mugabe critic Odinga.
The African Union “must formulate a resolution to send African Union troops into Zimbabwe,” he said. “If no troops are available, then the AU must allow the U.N. to send its forces into Zimbabwe with immediate effect, to take over control of the country and ensure urgent humanitarian assistance to the people dying of cholera and starvation.” If Mugabe does not co-operate, then international troops should “dislodge Mugabe from power.” (...) >>>

Yahoo!News: "South African president Mbeki agrees to step down"

South African President Thabo Mbeki agreed to resign after the ruling party ordered him Saturday to step down, a move that could heighten turmoil in Africa's economic powerhouse. Mbeki's rival and heir apparent Jacob Zuma was not expected to take over immediately. Another figure in the ruling African National Congress could be named interim president by parliament. "Following the decision of the National Executive Committee of the African National Congress to recall President Thabo Mbeki, the President has obliged and will step down after all constitutional requirements have been met," the presidency said in a terse statement. Mbeki was due to stand down next year after two terms in office, but faced growing pressure from Zuma's supporters to quit following a judge's ruling that Mbeki may have had a role in Zuma being charged with corruption. On Saturday, African National Congress secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said the party's high-level committee "decided to recall the president of the republic before his term of office expires."
