    I'm sure that after Obama's inauguration, the US will have a much stronger presence in many African Countries. I can't wait!

    I guess instead of Tutsi and Kongo people fighting over control of the Congo's coltan and diamonds, you'd like to see modern American and French armies doing it?

    To escape poverty, girls are choosing to be child soldiers in the DRC
    Dec. 29, 2016 -Throughout the decades-long conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo, children have been abducted and made to serve as soldiers. While most are male, it is estimated over a third are female, used mainly as domestic and sexual servants, but sometimes as fighters. Now the London-based NGO Child Soldiers International has released a report showing that many of the girls in armed groups weren't enlisted by force. They joined of their own free will – driven by poverty and a lack of access to education.

    African tribal chiefs threatening war has become a cliché.
