So Much for being "Revolutionaries"

I have been following the events in the DRC, since the early 1990's (at one point I had a vested interest in what was going on), and the situation is just sad. The NY Times has an article on the latest of the utter nonsense that is going on:

"Every day, 10 new women and girls who have been raped show up at his hospital. Many have been so sadistically attacked from the inside out, butchered by bayonets and assaulted with chunks of wood, that their reproductive and digestive systems are beyond repair.

“We don’t know why these rapes are happening, but one thing is clear,” said Dr. Mukwege, who works in South Kivu Province, the epicenter of Congo’s rape epidemic. “They are done to destroy women.”

Exactly what kind of "man" does this?

And Bob Marley must be wretching in his grave:

According to victims, one of the newest groups to emerge is called the Rastas, a mysterious gang of dreadlocked fugitives who live deep in the forest, wear shiny tracksuits and Los Angeles Lakers jerseys and are notorious for burning babies, kidnapping women and literally chopping up anybody who gets in their way.

United Nations officials said the so-called Rastas were once part of the Hutu militias who fled Rwanda after committing genocide there in 1994, but now it seems they have split off on their own and specialize in freelance cruelty.

Honorata Barinjibanwa, an 18-year-old woman with high cheekbones and downcast eyes, said she was kidnapped from a village that the Rastas raided in April and kept as a sex slave until August. Most of that time she was tied to a tree, and she still has rope marks ringing her delicate neck. The men would untie her for a few hours each day to gang-rape her, she said.

I currently cannot even comprehend what these guys must be thinking.

They may be black. Not sure I can call them "brothers". Hardly anything good about Africa from the NYT anyway.

Well yeah, NYT et al may not be reporting all the good stuff, which is why I have Timbuktu Chronicles linked, but sometimes you just gotta admit that some really dumb ish is going on in the Congo and has been for a long time.

I agree. From the slave trade to the Congo Free State, these guys have learned too well. But the soukous and ndombolo is still sweet.
