Civil War in The Congo: Template for Neo-Colonialism
J B Gerald, Global Research, Dec 5 2012
Two motives for indiscriminate mass death are population removal or murder as a corollary of corporate resource-extraction development, and population removal or murder in an elite’s agenda to kill everyone it considers expendable and any witnesses. The abuse of human beings in the Eastern Congo suggests a non-African military agenda that places no value on human life. Criminal resource-extraction efforts have robbed African countries for several centuries, with and without overt slaughter. Currently, Western corporations pay national leaders to present favourable contracts. This pattern of neo-colonial controls creates a class of the very rich and leaves the people impoverished, susceptible to disease, starvation, and conflict. True leaders of the people such as Patrice Lumumba and peacemakers such as Dag Hammarskjold are murdered, both with provable implication of US and UK intelligence networks. The practice of sacrificing the people for profit is familiar. In the Congo, the brutality plays out in real time what happens more subtly in all countries serving corporate rule, as if the Congolese are in a dream we can’t quite remember. But nothing rational explains the scale in the loss of human life during Rwanda‘s genocide, nor the uncountable ongoing losses of humanity in the DRC.
