We in the US have very little information about what is occurring Africa. We get bits and pieces of information regarding the secret deployment of troops in Africa and confusing reports about "civil wars" and other mysterious conflicts going on mostly through alternative internet sources. (See this, this, and this.) Recently we have been reading about new attacks on civilian towns in eastern DR Congo. This African writer's take on the Congo wars has a decided ring of authenticity to it.
What is happening in eastern DR Congo is not a civil war, but continuation of a 16-year aggression by the country’s two neighbours, financed and directed by the United States and Britain.
