Now that we’re free will you come back and save us?

The west must ditch its “double standards” and act decisively against the violence worsening in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Dr Denis Mukwege, the Nobel prize-winning surgeon, has said.

In a stinging criticism of the international community’s “negligence”, Mukwege urged Britain and its allies to impose sanctions on neighbouring Rwanda to help ease the growing crisis in the east of the country.

Pick up the burden again……

  1. On the contrary Steve; as we live in a time of Global Heating, refreshing cool beverages like Um Bongo become even more essential to our nation’s survival. Therefore I demand that PM Sunak declare war on Rwanda immediately, to secure our supply lines.

  2. Bloke in the Fourth Reich

    And all the other countries can think – if we hadn’t been colonised by the Brits/French/Spanish/Portuguese etc, we’d have been at the mercy of the Belgians!

  3. “We can see very clearly that this politics of double standards is undermining the credibility of the international, multilateral system. I’m sorry to say that this sort of flexible humanism is frustrating young Africans,” said Mukwege, comparing the huge international response to the war in Ukraine with the muted references to the “totally forgotten” DRC.

    For the sake of the inhabitants of the Democratic Republic of Congo, it’s a good thing the West isn’t interested in doing for them what we did to the country soon to be formerly known as Ukraine.

    Nobody needs millions more refugees and what should’ve been a minor territorial dispute turned into mini-WW2. Also, the British government is still pretending it’s gonna send rapefugees to Rwanda, so we can’t afford to piss them off.

  4. From Dr Pippa:

    “Consider Rwanda. That nation has somehow managed to move itself from a brutal genocide to becoming what many are calling the Singapore of Africa. This transformation has happened in less than 25 years. It is an astonishing testament to the power of imagination. I recently met with some of Rwanda’s cabinet members and found them to be exceptionally savvy and switched on to reality. One explained to me that the choice was simple. They could continue killing each other or become an entirely new country. So, they became a new country. Decisions were taken that most would have considered utterly impossible. The crackdown on corruption has been ruthless. By 2017 Transparency International declared Rwanda to be the least corrupt nation in East Africa, 3rd in Sub-Saharan Africa, and 48th out of 180 countries. Today one hears of Silicon Valley firms creating spin-offs based in Rwanda because the policy environment is so inviting and because it is home to the largest and most creative pool of coders, probably anywhere in the world now”

  5. PJF – I thought the radio was to blame.

    Not the Hutus who decided to chop up their neighbours with machetes, natch. The radio did it.

  6. “Kigali has been accused by the UN of supporting the M23 rebel militia, ”

    Those bastards from Sussex have taken over all the way down to Brighton and completely wiped out the A217 Posse and dreaded A24 Gang.

  7. Full marks for the Rwanda genocide. Obviously the right cunts got massacred. And no lions were troubled in the process. Could this be a model for Africa?

  8. Dennis, As White As They Get

    When we’re there, we’re racist colonizers.

    When we’re not there, we’re racist do-nothings.

  9. “Bringing a claim to the International Criminal Court, Tarquin Act’e-Viste declared that the British Government’s refusal to intervene in the ongoing mass killings in Fumbuck was clearly and obviously an act of genocide for their refusal to intervene and their acceptance of the mass murder being carried out across the country on an unprecedented, never-before-seen scale”

    Next week:-

    “”Bringing a claim to the International Criminal Court, Tarquin Act’e-Viste declared that the British Government’s intervention in the ongoing violence in Fumbuck was clearly and obviously an act of genocide, where white colonialist soldiers had ruthlessly gunned down innocent Africans who were merely engaged in traditional tribal disputes.”

    The week after that:-

    “Bringing a claim to the International Criminal Court, Tarquin Act’e-Viste declared that the British Government’s withdrawal of its troops from Fumbuck was clearly and obviously an act of genocide as they abandoned thousands of innocents to be massacred.”

    And so it goes…
