You can't stop thinking

“I’m never gonna hold you like I did / Or say I love you to the kids / You’re never gonna see it in my eyes / It’s not gonna hurt me when you cry / I’m not gonna miss you.” The situation is undeniably hurtful but we can'stop thinking we’re heartbroken over the loss of our beloved ones. "You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom". Malcolm X

A Candle For Remembering

A Candle For Remembering
May this memorial candle lights up the historical past of our beloved Country: Rwanda, We love U so much. If Tears could build a stairway. And memories were a lane. I would walk right up to heaven. To bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken. No time to say goodbye. You were gone before I knew it And. Only Paul Kagame knows why. My heart still aches with sadness. And secret tears still flow. What It meant to lose you. No one will ever know.

Welcome to Home Truths

The year is 1994, the Fruitful year and the Start of a long epoch of the Rwandan RPF bloody dictatorship. Rwanda and DRC have become a unique arena and fertile ground for wars and lies. Tutsi RPF members deny Rights and Justice to the Hutu majority, to Congolese people, publicly claim the status of victim as the only SurViVors while millions of Hutu, interior Tutsi and Congolese people were butchered. Please make RPF criminals a Day One priority. Allow voices of the REAL victims to be heard.

Everybody Hurts

“Everybody Hurts” is one of the rare songs on this list that actually offers catharsis. It’s beautifully simple: you’re sad, but you’re not alone because “everybody hurts, everybody cries.” You’re human, in other words, and we all have our moments. So take R.E.M.’s advice, “take comfort in your friends,” blast this song, have yourself a good cry, and then move on. You’ll feel better, I promise.—Bonnie Stiernberg

Why did Kagame this to me?

Why did Kagame this to me?
Can't forget. He murdered my mother. What should be my reaction? FYI: the number of orphans in Rwanda has skyrocketed since the 1990's Kagame's invasion. Much higher numbers of orphans had and have no other option but joining FDLR fighters who are identified as children that have Lost their Parents in Kagame's Wars inside and outside of Rwanda.If someone killed your child/spouse/parent(s) would you seek justice or revenge? Deep insight: What would you do to the person who snuffed the life of someone I love beyond reason? Forgiving would bring me no solace. If you take what really matters to me, I will show you what really matters. NITUTIRWANAHO TUZASHIRA.

RPF committed the unspeakable

RPF committed the unspeakable
The perverted RPF committed the unspeakable.Two orphans, together against the world. Point is the fact that their parents' murder by Kagame & RPF held no shock in the Western world. Up to now, kagame and his death squads still enjoy impunity. What goes through someone's mind as they know RPF murdered their parents? A delayed punishment is actually an encouragment to crime. “I always think I am a peaceful person but if someone harmed someone near and dear to me, I don't think I could be so peaceful. I would like to believe that I would seek justice - I would devote myself to bringing the 'perp' to a non-happy ending but would that be enough? You'd have to be in the situation I suppose before you could actually know how you would feel or what you would do”. Jean-Christophe Nizeyimana, Libre Penseur

Rwanda-rebranding

It concluded: “The truth is, however, the opposite.” Rwanda has hired several PR firms to work on deflecting criticism, and rebranding the country.

This should be seen in the context of accusations that Rwanda has plotted to kill dissidents abroad. A recent investigation by the Globe and Mail claims, “Rwandan exiles in both South Africa and Belgium – speaking in clandestine meetings in secure locations because of their fears of attack – gave detailed accounts of being recruited to assassinate critics of President Kagame….

Ways To Get Rid of Kagame

How to proceed for revolution in Rwanda:
  1. The people should overthrow the Rwandan dictator (often put in place by foreign agencies) and throw him, along with his henchmen and family, out of the country – e.g., the Shah of Iran, Marcos of Philippines.Compaore of Burkina Faso
  2. Rwandans organize a violent revolution and have the dictator killed – e.g., Ceaucescu in Romania.
  3. Foreign powers (till then maintaining the dictator) force the dictator to exile without armed intervention – e.g. Mátyás Rákosi of Hungary was exiled by the Soviets to Kirgizia in 1970 to “seek medical attention”.
  4. Foreign powers march in and remove the dictator (whom they either instated or helped earlier) – e.g. Saddam Hussein of Iraq or Manuel Noriega of Panama.
  5. The dictator kills himself in an act of desperation – e.g., Hitler in 1945.
  6. The dictator is assassinated by people near him – e.g., Julius Caesar of Rome in 44 AD was stabbed by 60-70 people (only one wound was fatal though).
  7. Organise strikes and unrest to paralyze the country and convince even the army not to support the dictaor – e.g., Jorge Ubico y Castañeda was ousted in Guatemala in 1944 and Guatemala became democratic, Recedntly in Burkina Faso with the dictator Blaise Compaoré.

KAGAME VS JUSTICE

Sunday, June 30, 2013




“Many of the Western countries have been wasting time on supporting and building the Rwandan economy, and the end has come out of full hands of a bloody dictatorship and a terrorist state built on:
 
the horrifying Tutsi minority (14%) ethnic domination, the Tutsi minority ethnic rule with an iron hand, tyranny and corruption in Rwanda. The Tutsi-led government has always been characterized by the total impunity of RPF criminals, the Tutsi economic monopoly, the Tutsi militaristic domination, and the brutal suppression of the rights of the Hutu majority (85%) added to their assassinations, mass arrests and killings by the RPF criminal organization”. =>AS International]


 
 

“Peace, president Obama said, relies on the golden rule of doing unto others as we would have them do unto us. “Adhering to this law of love has always been the core struggle of human nature.”

'You negotiate peace with your enemies not with your friends'


Former U.S. Secretary of State James Baker

If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.” – Moshe Dayan.



For pretty much his entire time, man has been fighting wars against his enemy, which is traditionally also man. Yup, that’s right. Mankind, a species with so much going for it, with such a wonderful potential future ahead, seems to be more interested in spending its time fighting itself.
Irrespective of what these fights are about, there are generally 3 possible outcomes for any given faction -
  1. Win. You beat your enemy, overwhelm them with superior force and strength, until they are so badly destroyed that they can’t stop you and they give in.
  2. Lose. Your enemy kills so many of you and destroys so much of your resources that you can’t fight any longer and you give in, letting them do whatever it was they wanted to do.
  3. Draw. Both sides suffer such heavy losses that they both agree to stop fighting for now and nothing is resolved.

And so the fighting stops for a while. But there is no real lasting resolution. The victor rejoices for a while. The loser goes away and licks their physical wounds, while the psychological wounds run deeper and fester away, ready to resurface later when the loser’s strength and numbers have increased or the winner has got complacent; often it will be some other excuse to start fighting again, but the root cause is the unfinished business from the first fight. And so the destructive cycle continues, fighting until one side loses, both go away, the loser brooding and regrouping, the victor having to keep an eye out for the next attack, neither side able to grow and move on. And should the result be a draw due to mutual attrition, then both sides will regroup and fester and plot until they spot a weakness in the other side and launch the attack anew.
Such has been mankind’s history for longer than there has been history.

However, there is another way. One which doesn’t happen too often but when it does, can lead to lasting peace and growth for both sides. And that is to talk with the enemy. To negotiate with them. To find out just what the heck you are both fighting about and why. Because when two enemies can actually talk about the issues, they open up the very real possibility of finding areas of common ground, areas of mutual interest, areas of potential compromise which do not mean having to “give in” to the other’s demands, but which stem from fostering a mutual respect and understanding and, over time, working together to achieve common aims. Alas this happens all to rarely – it is so much easier just to keep battering the “enemy” down, safe in the knowledge that you are right and they must be wrong, completely rejecting the reality that you re both right and both wrong and both have more in common than you might choose to believe.

Yet when this does happen, it can have very strong positive and rapid results.

A prime example of this is “The Troubles” (as they were known) regarding Ireland, Northern Ireland & Eire. These had been going on for decades or even centuries, depending upon where you trace the roots. Certainly the open warfare element arose in the 1960s with several different armed groups on all sides being heavily involved in 30 years of ongoing fighting, attacks, terrorism (it all depends upon which side you were on as to which was which). People on all sides were murdered with disturbing regularity, including a great many members of the general public both throughout Ireland and on the British mainland. No end was in sight.
Until the late 1990s which suddenly heralded negotiations and a peace treaty which, whilst not resolving all of the issues overnight, certainly lead to long-term ceasefires, weapons decommissioning, cross-community co-operation and growth, the removal of the British Army, and a cessation of violence in a very short space of time.
What decades of outright and brutal fighting had failed to achieve, discreet discussions and negotiations between the “enemies” on both sides managed to achieve in very short time.

They talked with each other. Listened to each other. Understood what each actually wanted, what each was working towards, and found common ground. Not by fighting but by talking with the enemy.
Far more solid progress can be made by talking with the enemy rather than with friends. Understanding what you are fighting over, understanding what you are both looking to get, understanding that in many cases you have common grounds and aspirations and goals, and realising that the only way to achieve them is to stop fighting and to work together.

Of course, I’m not just talking about armies or countries or towns fighting, am I?
Just like our species at large, each and every one of us is capable of many achievements and a great future;  we spend a disproportionate amount of our time fighting ourselves. We face these battles with ourself on a daily basis, sometimes many times in a day, and every single battle is destructive, counter-productive and a waste of our time and resources, holding us back from fulfilling our potential (or even just from making it unscathed through another day).

What do I mean when I say we fight ourselves?

Well consider any time you’ve wanted to do something, anything, and you find yourself in the position where part of you wants to do it, part of you doesn’t. and you have a great long fight with yourself over whether you should or shouldn’t. Sound familiar? When you are in that position, you are fighting yourself! And the sad thing is, the part of you that wants to and the part of you that doesn’t, both reached their position based on wanting what they believe is the best for you – they are both working in your own best interests! Or when you want to do something but this nagging voice at the back of your head says you can’t do it because you are not good enough. Or any of countless other examples where we fight ourselves, but the fight is based upon each aspect of us wanting what is best overall.

If only we realised!

If only we talked to our own internal enemies instead of fighting them, finding that common ground, working together, how much more could we be?

If only we understood not what each side wants, but why they want it, what is driving them, what do they think it will get for us… Try it. Next time you are “in two minds” about doing something, don’t just write down the age old list of pros and cons; instead, consider what doing it would get for you, what it would mean for you, what the purpose behind it might be. And then do the same for the other side of the argument.

You might be surprised at what comes up…

"Asking Africa to choose between prosperity and democracy is not only a false choice but also an unattractive one. The more America trades with Africa, the more political influence it is likely to gain. That, it seems, is also the view of Mr Obama".

I would go for democracy for prosperity instead of choosing between prosperity and democracy. Prosperity won't be achieved without democracy. It's a matter of fact. Prosperity based on democracy  should be indeed be  one of President Obama's main words in his speech to strengthen real relationships between United States and the African continent and the African great lakes region in particular. We saw the contrast between growth and democracy. We saw no democracy but perpetual tensions and wars and each day we've been told the Rwandan dictatorship's economy'growth reached 8%. Meanwhile the majority of Rwandans are sinking in poverty and misery; forced disappearances are common in Rwanda, arbitrary arrests and extra judicial executions (unique in the world)are intensified.

Political opposition and the majority of Rwandans remain ignored and the Rwanda and Rwandans were narrowed to the RPF (Rwanda) and its members (Rwandans)that holds the executive, legislative and judicial branches, a system that led to annihilation of all other political parties seen as illegal. 

The would-be president of Rwanda, known as the main and very courageous political leader Ms. Ingabire Victoire is imprisoned to have dreamed saving the tiny country from perpetual wars and hatred between the main ethnic groups and most of i t, to have told the truth about the Rwandan tragedy.As far as she's not freed and accepted as the opponent of the RPF regime, Rwandans will not accept to work for the axis of evil (Kagame and his RPF). At this moment, all of those born from the majority Hutu ethnic group have factually no chance of running the country.

For more than one decade, they have been prejudiced and who ever accepts to be the *umuhutu wanjye* meaning the *house nigger* can be seen raised from his lower to the higher position and getting appointed minister in the Tutsi led government or ambassador with the aim of mirroring the country's political space as democratic and representative of all ethnic groups. 

                          Negociations with the FDLR 

Understanding conflict and peace in the African Great lakes region and in Rwanda in particular with joined Intense behind-the-scenes contacts and pressure on General Kagame and the Tutsi RPF ruling class are necessary for peace in Rwanda.General Kagame and RPF are the main responsible for the current and previous human violations in Rwanda: nationalization of the ethnic Hutu assets, freedom of the press and open elections are inexistent in the country. Since 1994, RPF mass murder and assassinations of hundreds of thousands of citizens believed to be born from the Hutu majority, especially outspoken activists and thinkers, journalists, political opposition leaders and members have become  more and more impossible to sustain. To prevent these crimes and step up to peace, it's important that the current Tutsi led government negotiate with the FDLR. Taking these steps would save millions of innocent lives, give the political opposition a better chance to succeed within the open elections.Tanzania should be central to the mediation between the FDLR and the Tutsi-led government.

Foreign Policy is a complex labyrinth of balancing local needs with international interests. This act requires awareness of one’s population, needs of the community, financial and peaceful stability as well as serving the interests of the greater good.  These are all signs of a mature and aware politician. The key here is being able to look beyond the individual interest to the needs and to focus and serve the needs of the great good.

Recently Rwanda has come under much scrutiny by its neighbors who are asking President Kagame to negotiate with the FDLR. President Kikwete of Tanzania recentlysuggested that Rwanda negotiate with the FLDR and end the 19 year standoff.  Kagame rebuffed this advice and instead asked for an apology from President Kikwete for such a recommendation.  Now the SADC has also urged Rwanda to also engage in these peace talks as well. Mr. Ban Ki Moon, Security General of the UN, has also made a statementsupporting President Kikwete in his call for negotiations.
With these powerful neighbors and world leaders who have stable countries and democratic processes one has to wonder why President Kagame won’t heed the advice of such nations.
The U.S. Department of State announced today that a new special representative to the Great Lakes Region has been appointed with the goal of finding a solution to lasting peace to a region that has been overly involved in war for nearly twenty years. It appears that since President Kagame will not engage in peace talks other nations have decided to intervene and urge him to do so.In a press release published today, top opposition groups to the ruling regime in Rwanda have stated their support for the SADC statement.  This press release is published in full below:
PRESS RELEASE
Date: 19 June 2013.
RWANDA : POLITICAL OPPOSITION COMMENDS SADC POSITION ON TALKS FOR LASTING PEACE IN THE GREAT LAKES REGION.
On 17 June 2013, the extraordinary summit of the Heads of State and Government of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) held in Maputo (Mozambique) urged Rwanda and Uganda to consider peace talks with the armed opposition for a lasting peace in the Great Lakes region. During the last African Union Summit, Tanzanian President Kikwete advised Rwanda to talk peace with its opposition.
On 2 June 2013, in Yokohama (Japan) during his meeting with H.E. Mr. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, commended his stand for comprehensive peace in the region, the deployment of Tanzanian forces for the International intervention brigade in Eastern DRC, and his advice for peace talks. He promised to deepen this issue of lasting solutions engaging all stakeholders during the September 2013 meeting in New York.
Earlier on 26 May 2013 in Addis Ababa, during the first meeting of the Regional Oversight Mechanism of the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework Agreement for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the region, the participants “agreed on the need of a comprehensive approach including to engage all stakeholders working towards the objective of the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the DRC and the Great Lakes region”. They “agreed to meet again in September 2013 in New York, on the margins of the 69th UN General Assembly, to further discuss concrete steps and specific benchmarks for implementing the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework.”
The undersigned, members of Rwandan opposition organisations, distance ourselves from arrogant words aired by President Paul Kagame against the President of Tanzania, H.E. Mr. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, on 10 June 2013, while officiating a graduation ceremony of senior military officers, at the Rwanda Defence Forces Staff and Command College. He said about President Kikwete’s advice: “I kept quiet for the contempt I have for it because I thought it was utter nonsense spoken out of ignorance. We must be left to live our lives the way Rwandans want to live them.”

The Rwandan political opposition, FDU-Inkingi, RNC, PSI-Imberakuri and Amahoro People’s Congress commend SADC recommendations for lasting peace in the DRC, Rwanda, Uganda, and the whole Great Lakes region. We, the undersigned, express our readiness to fully contribute to any peace efforts in the region and to take part in talks under the facilitation of SADC leaders and the international community.

His Excellency J. Kikwete
President of Tanzania
On 26 May 2013 in Addis Ababa the UN Secretary General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon and the Chairperson of the African Union Commission Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, convened the first meeting of the Regional Oversight Mechanism of the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the DRC and Region. It was at this important meeting where the President of the United Republic of Tanzania, H.E. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete made what many level headed commentators have referred to as candid and commonsensical remarks about the protracted conflicts in the Great Lakes Region.

President Kikwete
 - a seasoned and consummate diplomat who has helped broker many peace deals in Africa - remarked that it was high time Rwanda and Uganda gave serious attention to peace talks with FDLR and ADFrebels respectively. He said, and correctly so, that it was evident the barrel of the gun cannot bring about the ultimate answer as testified by the recurrence of fighting in our region. He never condoned the role that the FDLR rebels played in the 1994 genocide. He was being reasonable and pragmatic.


Rwanda should know better than any other country that there is no way Tanzania would condone or sympathize with the perpetrators of genocide. To make suchinsinuations is, quite frankly, demonstration of breathtaking ignorance about Tanzania’s enviable and unparalleled history - the history of speaking out against any forms of crimes and injustices. Moreover, for Rwanda to make such insinuations is to show just what a short memory span this country has.
Admittedly, genocide brought about painful and unforgettable misery to the people of Rwanda but its spillover effects were felt well beyond its borders. The effects of genocide were felt right inside Tanzania which had to shoulder the burden ofproviding for thousands of Rwandan refugees. By the way, Tanzania has a long history of taking good care of Rwandan refugees both before and after genocide.The sons and daughters of the Rwandan refugees benefitted from Tanzania’sgenerous education system by studying, for free, at the country’s Universities and many of them are now occupying high positions in the Government of their motherland.

So given the foregoing, I have to say that I have been taken aback by ourneighbors’ over-reaction to what was a completely innocuous statement byPresident KikweteIndeed, what the President said could (and should) have been said by other leaders a long time ago. What he said is a no-brainer!  It is common sensical!  Negotiations have a much better chance of resulting into durable peace than the use of force. Thus, I find the reactions from Rwanda not only disturbing but also objectionable and utterly impudent! What is even more shocking is the discourteous behavior shown by the Rwanda’s Foreign Minister.  She seems to be getting too much big for her boots as to suggest that President Kikwete’s statement was absurd! She even has the audacity to ask that he should retract it. If anything, I think it is our Foreign Ministry which should summon the Ambassador of Rwanda in Dar es Salaam and ask him to clarify his Minister’s inadvisable utterances.

For far too long now the international community has adopted a softly softly approach with respect to Rwanda and this has meant that this tiny country gets away with literally everything, even murder. Rwanda has become like a spoiled child - untouchable and overly sensitive to everything even the slightest suggestion of censure. Rwanda has a tendency of not taking kindly any form of criticism whether from within or without. And its leadership comes across as snobbish and delusional. May be the western countries’ plaudits about its so called success story have finally got into the heads of Rwandan leaders so much that they think they know it all.

For Rwanda to say that they cannot engage in talks with FDLR rebels because of their role in 1994 genocide is to allow themselves to be the captives of the past. History is replete with numerous instances of former sworn enemies burying their hatchets and extending an olive branch to one another for the sake of peaceful coexistence and future prosperity. This happened in South Africa where ANC and other progressive movements sat down with the perpetrators of one of the most brutal and inhumane policies in the history of mankind (apartheid) and agreed to work together in an inclusive and democratic society. Similarly, after many decades of committing some of the most heinous crimes against the people of Angola, UNITA is now part of the democratic government of that country. And in 2011, US and its allies initiated direct talks with some elements of the Taliban in Doha (Qatar), if my memory serves me well.
Rwanda should wake up and smell the coffee! Being delusional has not worked and won’t work.
It is now close to 20 yrs since the 1994 genocide and during all that time Rwanda has not been able to achieve its objectives visa vis FDLR rebelsthrough the use of force.  Any sane person in Kigali should see the wisdom of changing the tactic/strategy which is, for all purposes and intents, what our President said in the Statement. Rwanda should understand that by calling for direct talks, Tanzania does not suggest, by any stretch of imagination, that the architects and executors of genocide should go scot free. Not at all! Talks can, and indeed should, offer the mechanism of dealing with known perpetrators of genocide by isolating them from non-perpetrators such as those born after 1994.This is just one example of approaching talks. I am sure there are many others.

But talking of genocide, am wrong in recalling that even President Kagame himself was once found to be complicit in this crime by a French Magistrate? I recall that Rwanda’s reaction to this finding was, as we have come to expect, fast and furious to the extent of severing its diplomatic relations with France. Again, this goes to show that this “spoiled child” can’t stand any sort of censure or straight talking. I also recall that as recent as last year a UN report revealed that Rwanda’s Kagame had committed or assisted in committing genocide in DRC!
Despite all this compelling evidence, neighbors of Rwanda are still ready to engage that country in talks. Why can’t Rwanda show the same attitude? And lest he forgets, Kagame himself and his RPF henchmen come from a background of rebellion. They were rebels operating from Ugandan forests before taking over power in 1994. However, despite their “rebels” status they were invited and took part in the Arusha peace process of the early 1990s.  
Finally, I have a gut feeling that Rwanda doesn’t want FDLR rebels to go away that’s is why it is vehemently opposing the suggestion of talks which is one sure way of ending this conflict once and for allThis because, the perpetual presence of FDLR rebels in DRC gives Rwanda a convenient excuse to interfere in the DRC’s affairs thereby making the country ungovernable for its own economic and geopolitical interests. I read somewhere that Rwanda’s army – which is one of the biggest for a country of that economy and size - is mainly sustained by the exploitation of DRC’s natural resources. So, Rwanda goes into the DRC on the pretext that it is in hot pursuit of the FDLR rebels but in actual fact what it does is to plunder the resources.
And Rwanda is particularly angry with Tanzania because by being part of MONUSCO in DRC, its misdeeds will be exposed and curtailed by our non-nonsense troops. So the over-reaction to our President’s innocuous statement should not be seen in isolation. It is part of the frustration born out of the uneasy situation which Rwanda finds itself in as a result of our troops being part of the UN/SADC intervention force in DRC.

I submit.

Gén. D. Tauzin Demande Justice

Le Général Tauzian réclame la Justice pour la France et pour les Soldats français. Les Présidents Nicolas Sarkozy et François Hollande ne font que ridicuriser les soldats français qui payent de leurs vies pour la France. Plutôt que rendre hommage à la France et à l'armée française, ils n'ont fait que prendre partie pour l'ennemi de la France. Il l'explique dans le vidéo qui suit:
