John, a foreigner who tells you the truth on what has been happening in Rwanda is misinformed and or stupid; a hutu who tells you the same truth is called a genocidaire or has a genocide ideology; a tutsi who tells you the same truth is labelled an enemy of the state. If all these people are telling you a similar story, don't you think it is time to reflect on what they are telling you instead of being in denial. In fact the more people telling you the truth, the more difficult it will become for you to face it later, if you continue being stuck in denying the reality.

Good metaphor about the fox guarding the hen house.

Today there is overwhelming evidence about Kagame being responsible of the assassination of Juvenal Habyarimana and Cyprian Ntaryamira on April 6th 1994, so much so that even those still trying to cover up his involvement must somehow feel ashamed of their actions.

And what the proposal from the Tanzanian president Kikwete of having talks between armed rebels in the region with their respective governments [Rwanda, Uganda and DRC] would bring to the situation?

Great woman Cynthia McKinney. I met her for the first time in Tripoli back in January 2011. We were both attending an international conference for the global African diaspora which was organised by Kaddafi government. Coming from the Great Lakes region where there is a human tragedy which has been going for almost two decades, but within which US and UK responsibilities are distorted because of their economic interests, she was the first during her time as congresswoman to question such role for her government.

As I mentioned in my posting today http://therisingcontinent.wordpress.com/2012/12/2... I believe that Ambassador Susan Rice was opposed by Republican Congressmen for a possible role as Secretary of State more for racism reasons than anything else. In fact, despite her disastrous performance in Africa and particularly the Great Lakes region, only from Africans' perspective, she has tremendously defended US interests.

@Gakondo. I am going to find out with you some logical thinking around the Rwandan genocide of 1994, though I feel it might be difficult seeing where you stand. My family which is Hutu lost many members who were killed by both Interahamwe and RPF elements during the 100 days of 1994 covering what the UN termed as the Rwandan genocide. I know RPF has recuperated the terminology and simply named it the genocide of the Tutsi. If I say that during the genocide I lost many members of my family, am I wrong according to you, or do I become a genocide denial, because in your logic there can only be one genocide in Rwanda, the one that targeted Tutsi?

@James. Maybe you are not at the receiving end of the oppression of Rwandans by president Paul Kagame and his inner circle. It's not however a very ethically enviable place because you involuntary get associated with the oppressing group. The author of the article maybe foreign but he knows more about Rwanda than your leaders want you to know, because they don't want the general public to be aware of all these things. Ask yourself objectively why there isn't in Rwanda any independent press not linked to RPF? Is it because Rwanda is a paradise?
