This is a question we cannot help but ask, when we see how things are turning out to be in Eastern DRC. It is obvious that the so called international community has privileged the infamous SADC over the ICGLR initiaves. If you remember well, when the talks began in Kampala after M23 unilaterally withdrew from Goma, following the peace initiative by ICGLR via its current chairman, instead of handling the discussions successfully, Joseph Kabila run to his "looting DRC" allies from the South to engineer the way of finding obstacles to the peace process. Those of us who know how he has been acting since Sun City knew perfectly, he was up to breaking the Kampala process, pretty much in the same way as he did in Nairobi, 2009. He was also trying to find a way of blaming every failure in this whole matter unto the DRC neighbors on the Nort-Eastern Boarders. Hence the Ntaganda adventure. However, this time, he could not get away with that one, since Makenga beat him to it. So he tried his pseudo-diplomacy with Addis-Abeba to pave way for the latest UN resolution manufactured by his allies, the French, always in search of genocide blood in the region, where they firmly believe they left unfinished business in 1994. Since colonial times, colonial powers have used Africans to enslave Africans, Africans to exterminate Africans. If the hutus failed in Rwanda, and FDLR with the help of Kabila's cronies (remember Yerodia Ndombasi?) have not exterminated tutsis in Eastern DRC as planned by their patrons in the UN and the EU, then, the UN has to do it. That's where we have reached now. The battle has not yet started, but it will not be as easy as the French and their new allies from South-Africa, Tanzania and Malawi think. We already know they will be defeated, but let not say once again that it will not be M23 but Rwanda and Uganda, that broken record sound must be put to rest.

The other point everyone must keep in mind, including the "vultures" is that this UN new adventure against the whole of Eastern DRC will never clear Joseph Kabila of his utterly bad governance, which is the bigger picture Makenga, like Nkunda are fighting for. The tea plantations that have grown into authentic forests remain totally unacceptable in a country where the sole source of livelihood has become rotten aid food for IDPs, of all places, in the Kivu. Whether the French who engineer the UN resolutions like it or not, patriots from the Kivu must fight to restore the State. The infamous brigade being imposed on them will not restore the State.

Interesting readings here:

The online Congoindependant dissects what Kabila thought to be a diplomatic victory but is, indeed, a failure, it's about the UN resolution 2098, of course:

But some times I feel like I should not blame Kabila in the sense of what Cicero said once about Caesar:

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new wonderful good society which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious".
