Shouldn't The Label Be Covered With Blood?

Whenever I see the word 'Congo' I accociate it with Belgium. What a great record for a country that houses most of the EU government eh?

I think that there is no political faction (with mainstream media access) in the West that has a dog in the Congo fight, so it may as well not exist.

OTOH, speaking of dogs, everyman and his dog seems to have an opinion about Israel and Palestine, which may mean that particular conflict is the clash of the titans.

For a fascinating alternative read (i.e. one you won't hear in the MSM) take on the Belgian Congo, colonialism, and decolonisation see here:
