A Win In The Congo!

Filed under: General Discussion — bobfunke @ 2:26

M23 rebel recruits stand at attention during a training session at the Rumangabo military camp in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo on 16 May, 2013.

Nicholas Kulish of the NYT’s:

Is reporting that the group known as M23 has stood down and will no longer engage in armed conflict, ending a 20 month rebellion.

The Congolese government, with UN support brokered a tentative agreement.

I am not an expert on this subject, but when wars and fighting cease, I can see the dawn. The larger question will be how the Congolese government will deal with Group M23. There are many facets involved in this situation, but I hope the Congolese government realizes that when the wheel of justice turns; forgiveness is a part of that wheel.

There are references to Rwanda aiding M23 and other rebel groups, but nothing of substance has turned up. The US has suspended military aid to Rwanda, (as where we should everywhere).

As “minor” as this may seem, at least less blood will flow in the Congo.
