congolese rebel watch
Are they dividing or aren't they? My general rule for life and work in the Congo is that if Jason Starnes is worried about it, it's serious. He sounds concerned about the potential ramifications, but I don't think it's time to panic yet.
In other news, my favorite Congolese rebel/politician Jean-Pierre Bemba's war crimes confirmation of charges began at The Hague today. That's one down. If they ever get around to prosecuting every other major Congolese politician/warlord whose election campaign t-shirts I possess, we might get an actual peace deal.
I won't be holding my breath.
