congo watch

Thank goodness, the UN Security Council agreed today to send 3,000 extra troops to the DR Congo! This is great news, and if they can 1) get a country or two to commit those troops and 2) get those troops on the ground before May, will really help to protect more civilians there.

In other news, the rebels are conducting reeducation classes for officials in Rutshuru that include a rather unique interpretation of Congolese history. My guess is that the works of Alexis Kagame are taken very seriously in those classes. Super.
