End of the M23 Era but no end yet to USA and her clients’ looting of Congo resources : Kabila Congratulates Congo Army for Defeating M23 Rebels: FARDC captured Ugandan and Rwandan Nationals fighting alongside M23 Rebels

The destruction of the Congo says much more about the West than it does about the Central African country. It reveals most clearly that the West is largely a criminal enterprise, the prosperity of which is based on the genocide of Third World people and the theft of their resources. The Congo is perhaps the worst example of this but the West has followed the same policy in Asia, Africa and Latin America for centuries. In this sense, Western countries can be seen as a murderous mafia led by their godfather the United States government for which no amount of blood and wealth is enough.  

The US and her client states have been terribly exposed for  supporting their  proxy regimes, Rwanda and Uganda to destabilize D.R Congo so that US, Canadian and European companies continue to loot resources in Congo un disturbed. USA client states, Uganda and Rwanda have been greatly  exposed for  supporting M23 rebels. Even the most gullible person now knows that the M23 rebels are supported by Rwanda and Uganda. Now, that the M23 has lost credibility, it must be ‘annihilated’ in order to pave way for another militia  that  will cause confusion in the DRC for mineral plunder’s sake. As the M23 moves into oblivion, a new militia or militias will emerge with the full support of the US and her client states.  

Kabila Congratulates Congo Army for Defeating M23 Rebels

DR Congo’s army has recaptured Bunagana, the last major town that was still occupied by the M23 rebels in North Kivu province. The victory marks a turning point for eastern Congo, which has been plagued by unrest for more than a decade.
To stress the importance of the moment, President Joseph Kabila took to the airwaves tonight to congratulate the Congolese Armed Forces, known as the FARDC, for liberating “most regions of North Kivu that had been under the control of the enemies of peace for 19 months.”

“Kibumba, Rutshuru, Rumangabo, and since the last few hours Bunagana, are again under the administration of the legally established political and administrative authorities,” Mr. Kabila said in a speech to the nation broadcasted on national television.

Mr. Kabila said that the offensive, which began last Friday, “was ordered after a long series of harassments against [FARDC] positions and cities with high population concentrations.”

In a span of just five days, the Congolese army has all but liberated the entire territory of North Kivu province from the M23 rebels. A few rebels remain holed up in the hills of Chanzu, Mbuzi and Runyoni near the Ugandan border. The Congolese army was advancing towards them tonight.

In his speech, Mr. Kabila called on neighboring countries to abide by the UN and African Union-brokered Addis Ababa Framework Agreement, which calls on all countries of the Great Lakes region to stop supporting armed groups in neighboring countries.

He warned other foreign armed groups operating in eastern Congo, namely the FDLR, ADF-NALU, LRA and FNL, to “lay down their arms and end their abuses on the Congolese people.” Failing to do so, he said, will expose them to “an operation to forcefully disarm them like the one that is currently underway.”
Mr. Kabila also thanked the peacekeepers of the UN mission in DR Congo, known as MONUSCO, for supporting the Congolese army.

He honored the memory of the three Tanzanian peacekeepers who lost their lives and other peacekeepers who were injured. “Through my voice, the Congolese nation as a whole expresses its gratitude,” he said.
“Having suffered from war, we, Congolese, know the price of peace. So, let’s grasp the opportunity presented by the latest developments in North Kivu to strengthen national unity and rebuild as one our beautiful and beloved country.”

Congo Defeat Of Terror-Army M23 Must Be Followed With End To Tyranny In Rwanda and Uganda

DR Congo M23 rebels 'all but finished', says UN


Government forces celebrate in Rumangabo, 28 Oct Government forces celebrate the capture of Rumangabo
The UN's special envoy in the Democratic Republic of Congo has told the organisation's Security Council that the M23 rebel movement is all but finished as a military threat.

Martin Kobler said the M23 had abandoned most military positions in the east and was confined to a small triangle close to the Rwandan border.

A fifth rebel-held area in a week fell to government forces on Monday.

The rebels say that their withdrawals are temporary.

Mr Kobler told the UN Security Council by video-link: "It is practically the military end of the M23."
He said the rebels had abandoned a key position on Mount Hehu near the Rwandan border.


There is no dispute that the M23 rebels are facing a military defeat.

The military option was not the route that regional actors and the UN favoured. But as the humanitarian crisis escalated in eastern DR Congo, a military alternative seemed acceptable, even desirable.

The Congolese army was emboldened by the deployment of a UN mission with a robust mandate to attack the rebels using helicopters.

While the military defeat of the M23 is a psychological victory for the government, the region's problems are far from over.

Ethnic-based groups, including those linked to the Rwandan genocide, still operate. A new rebel group, M18, recently emerged, adding to the complex mix of the conflict.

Several issues lie behind the unrest, including a competition for resources and a history of ethnic rivalry.
Add the involvement of regional actors in a vast area with weak state institutions and it is clear that bringing peace to eastern DR Congo is not a straightforward matter.

After the UN meeting, French ambassador Gerard Araud said he hoped there would now be talks between the rebels and the government.

He said: "Mr Kobler has briefed us and basically he told us that we are witnessing the military end of the M23.

"So I think it's a positive development of course and there was a general agreement that now we should go back to the table of negotiation in Kampala."

Peace talks between the government and M23, hosted by neighbouring Uganda, broke down last week.
There had previously been about two months of relative calm in eastern DR Congo.
'Retreating rebels'
  Cheering crowds reportedly welcomed government troops on Monday as they entered Rumangabo town, where the latest M23 base to fall was located.

The government is re-establishing its rule there, said North Kivu province governor Julien Palukui.
"We have just held two meetings in order to discuss how to uplift the population... and we are announcing the restoration of the civil service within the next 24 hours,'' he added.

Rumangabo - about 50km (30 miles) north of Goma, the main city in eastern DR Congo - had one of the three biggest military bases in DR Congo before it fell to the rebels last year.

There is no doubt that the government forces have achieved huge victories over the rebels, says the BBC's Maud Jullien in the capital, Kinshasa.

The UN has deployed a new intervention brigade to eastern DR Congo with a stronger mandate to confront armed groups.

On Sunday, the UN mission in DR Congo, Monusco, said a Tanzanian peacekeeper was killed during fighting with the M23 in the town of Kiwanja.

"The soldier died while protecting the people of Kiwanja," Monusco said in a statement.

The military success in Rumangabo followed the capture of four other areas - Kiwanja, Rutshuru, Buhumba and Kibumba - since the weekend, the army said.

M23 officials in Uganda said their fighters had retreated because government and UN forces had launched a joint assault, reports the BBC's Ignatius Bahizi from Uganda's capital, Kampala.
Rebel forces were outnumbered, they said.

M23 fighters planned to regroup before making their next move, the officials added.
At least 800,000 people have fled their homes in DR Congo since the M23 launched its rebellion in April 2012, the UN humanitarian agency, Ocha, says.

The rebels briefly occupied eastern DR Congo's main town, Goma, in November 2012 before pulling out under international pressure.
The M23 are mainly ethnic Tutsis, like most of Rwanda's leaders.

Rwanda and Uganda deny persistent Congolese and UN allegations that the neighbours are backing the rebel forces.

Eastern DR Congo has been wracked by conflict since 1994, when Hutu militias fled across the border from Rwanda after carrying out a genocide against Tutsis and moderate Hutus.

M23 rebels ‘face military end’

29 OCTOBER 2013

The army of the Democratic Republic of Congo, who just one year ago abandoned their posts and fled in the face of an advancing rebel army, succeeded yesterday in taking back a strategically important city

In what appears to be a turning point in the conflict, the c civilian population of Rumangabo, which reportedly suffered grave abuses under the rebels, poured into the streets to welcome the soldiers, running alongside their tanks.

Women threw flowers. Men picked palm leaves off of the nearby trees and waved them. The UN envoy to the DRC told the Security Council it was the military end of the M23 rebel group.

“I confirm that we have just taken the city of Rumangabo,” said Congolese military spokesman Lt. Col Olivier Hamuli. “(We) entered the city at 11am and were met by the applause of the population.”

Over the weekend, Congolese soldiers took back Kiwanja, Rutshuru, Buhumba and Kibumba. Of the five, Rumangabo is the most important militarily, because it is home to one of the largest military camps in the country’s troubled east.

The soldiers faced no resistance as they headed into Rumangabo town, according to a reporter for The Associated Press accompanying the troops.

From there they advanced toward the camp, which dates back to the time of ex-dictator Mobutu Sese Seko and was taken over about a year ago by the M23 rebels, who used it to train their recruits.
The Congolese army reached the camp at around noon, secured the stockpile of weapons left there and posted guards. It was there that the troops were approached by Jacques Leon Liripa, a soldier who was captured by the rebels in 2012, and spent more than a year as a prisoner of war.

He said the M23 rebels deserted the area on Sunday afternoon, and he was able to break out of jail. He spent the night in the forest, emerging only when he saw his former colleagues.

Martin Kobler, the UN special representative for DRC, briefed the UN Security Council and told them “we are witnessing the military end of the M23,” according to French UN Ambassador Gerard Araud.
“We hope that the rebel movement has been chastised, and will go back to the negotiating table,” Mr Araud said.

The government will quickly restore administration, said the governor of the North Kivu province. “I confirm the fall of Rumangabo,” said Julien Paluku

FARDC captured Ugandan and Rwandan Nationals fighting alongside M23 Rebels

The border town fell in the hands of FARDC after a fierce fighting between the M23 rebels and the DRC army that lasted for almost a week.
FARDC has vowed to keep on pressing until they kick the M23 rebel group out of Eastern Congo.
Earlier the M23 rebel leader Bertrand Bisimwa left the Eastern part of Congo to Kampala where he is supposed to meet the M23 delegation team that is having peace talks with the DRC government.
On capturing Bunagana, the FARDC revealed that the M23 rebel group has been committing serious crimes that included torturing and killing people.

Congolese M23 rebel leader, Bertrand Bisiimwa is in Uganda for peace talks between his group and the Congolese government.

The facilitator of the talks, the Ugandan minister for defense Dr. Crispus Kiyonga sent a chopper to pick Bisiimwa from the Ugandan border at Bunagana border contrary to reports the rebel leader had surrendered to Ugandan security, army Spokesperson Paddy Akunda said.

Regional leaders last month directed that peace negotiations between the M23 rebels and the Government of Congo should resume as a way of ending fighting in eastern DR Congo.

This was in a declaration made at the end of an emergency meeting called by President Yoweri Museveni in his capacity as the chairperson of the regional body, the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR).

The meeting was attended by the four other regional Presidents Joseph Kabila (DR Congo), Salva Kiir (South Sudan), Paul Kagame (Rwanda) and Jakaya Kikwete (Tanzania). Also present were Mary Robinson the UN special envoy to the Great Lakes region and Dlamini Zuma the chairperson of the African Union Commission.

The Presidents directed that the peace negotiations should resume within the three days after their Heads of State summit, and conclude within a maximum period of 14 days.

M23 head flees to Uganda

Kampala- The president of M23 rebel group, Mr Bertrand Bisimwa, yesterday fled to Uganda as Congolese troops backed by a special regional intervention brigade captured rebel strongholds in North Kivu Province.
“It’s true he is around, I’m not sure he has run away, he may be here as part of efforts to contribute to the peace talks,” the UPDF spokesperson, Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, said last evening.
Earlier, a security source told this newspaper that Mr Bisimwa entered through Bunagana as the rebels’ lairs came under heavy shelling over the past week.
In the latest round of military confrontations since the inconclusive peace talks in Kampala, M23 fighters retreated from the frontline, losing Kiwanja, Rutshuru and Rumangabo strongholds to rapidly advancing Forces Armées de la République Démocratique du Congo Forces (FARDC).
By last night, it emerged that President Joseph Kabila’s forces had captured the strategic Bunagana border post with Uganda, more than a year since the rebels captured it.
Kisoro leaders speak out
“The Congolese government has repossessed Bunagana border town after chasing away the M23 rebels,” the Resident District ommissioner of the neighbouring Kisoro, Mr Ahmed Doka, said. ”We hope the situation shall be normal and the problem of refuges solved.”
Uganda presently hosts more than 100, 000 Congolese. The overpowered M23 rebels reportedly scattered into the bushes, with some sneaking into Uganda as refugees.
News of the Bunagana takeover prompted thousands of Congolese nationals, who in the past week had ran to Uganda for safety, to stream back home in large numbers. The situation remained calm, but tense, witnesses said.
In November last year, the M23 rebel group overran Goma City after Congolese soldiers retreated hurriedly without firing back.
The International Conference on Great Lakes Region, a 11-memebr regional bloc chaired by President Museveni, sweet-talked the rebels to withdraw from Goma as a pre-condition for dialogue whose pact both parties refused to sign.

Thousands flee DR Congo fighting to Uganda: UN

Thousands flee DR Congo fighting to Uganda: UN

Congolese refugees entering Uganda
Over 5,000 refugees fleeing fighting in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have escaped into neighbouring Uganda this week, United Nations officials said Wednesday, warning that double that number are expected to cross the border.

" causing a large amount of displacement into Uganda," said Lucy Beck, a spokeswoman for the UN refugee agency UNHCR, adding that 5,000 refugees had crossed the border since Monday.

"We are predicting up to 10,000 people would have crossed by tomorrow, because the fighting seems to be going on very close to the border... People are continuing to cross even as we speak."

Congolese troops backed by a United Nations intervention brigade launched a major offensive earlier this week against the M23 rebel movement of army mutineers in Congo's turbulent North Kivu province.

The number of refugees will "put some strain on our resources", Beck added, but said that preparations had been made for up to 150,000.

"The way it is going, we can imagine they will be staying for some amount of time," she added.

The M23 was founded by former Tutsi rebels who were incorporated into the Congolese army under a 2009 peace deal.

Complaining the deal was never fully implemented, they mutinied in April 2012, turning their guns on their former comrades and launching the latest rebellion to ravage DR Congo's mineral-rich and conflict-prone east.

The UN and various rights groups have accused the M23 of atrocities including rape and murder in a conflict that has caused tens of thousands of refugees to flee. Reuters

 Oh! God when will you avenge this: Congolese abandoned by international community


In this impressive book, Edward S. Herman and David Peterson examine the uses and abuses of the word “genocide.” They argue persuasively that the label is highly politicized and that in the United States it is used by the government, journalists, and academics to brand as evil those nations and political movements that in one way or another interfere with the imperial interests of U.S. capitalism. Thus the word “genocide” is seldom applied when the perpetrators are U.S. allies (or even the United States itself), while it is used almost indiscriminately when murders are committed or are alleged to have been committed by enemies of the United States and U.S. business interests. One set of rules applies to cases such as U.S. aggression in Vietnam, Israeli oppression of Palestinians, Indonesian slaughter of so-called communists and the people of East Timor, U.S. bombings in Serbia and Kosovo, the U.S. war of “liberation” in Iraq, and mass murders committed by U.S. allies in Rwanda and the Republic of Congo. Another set applies to cases such as Serbian aggression in Kosovo and Bosnia, killings carried out by U.S. enemies in Rwanda and Darfur, Saddam Hussein, any and all actions by Iran, and a host of others.
