"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

I am really worried about North Kivu. Reports like those on this blog are becoming more and more common, incidents of low-level violence, though normal, are more frequent, the Rwandans are pushing for military action against the FDLR (and the Ugandans are echoing their calls), and desertions from the army (always a sure sign that something is about to happen) are on the rise. There have been a couple of incidents in the last week on the Sake-Masisi road, which is one of the places serious trouble could start if it starts at all.
