Porkins Policy Radio episode 140 In Praise of Blood by Judi Rever

Freelance journalist Judi Rever joins me this week for an in-depth discussion of her new book In Praise of Blood: The Crimes of the Rwandan Patriotic Front. Judi talks about her first experiences in the aftermath of the Rwandan Genocide while reporting in Congo in the late 1990s. Judi discusses what it was like to uncover the true nature of both the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) and its actions before, during, and after the genocide. We then move onto Paul Kagame himself and the structure of the RPF. Judi and I talk about Kagame’s life in Uganda, his close relationship with Yoweri Museveni, and his time as head of Ugandan intelligence. Judi also talks about the much feared Directorate Military Intelligence (DMI). She talks about the structure of the DMI and how it functioned as the nervous system of the genocide. We then move onto the political ideology of the RPF and what it would ultimately achieve. Judi and I discuss its extreme views which saw the mass slaughter of Hutus all across Rwanda and the seizing of land as a result. Judi talks also talks about how Kagame and the RPF have turned Rwanda into a nation of spies and informants.

In the second hour Judi and I talk about the Byumba Stadium Massacre, and how it acts as a template for RPF’s crimes throughout the genocide and afterwards. Judi explains how the RPF tactic of luring injured and starving Hutus into a central area under the pretense of providing aid was used through about the genocide. We discuss how under Kagame’s direction, burning bodies avoided the existence of mass graves, which could be discovered on satellite photos. Later on we talk about the assassination of Juvenal Habyarimana. Judi explains the reality of the assassination, which was in fact carried out by the RPF on orders from Paul Kagame. We talk about the significance of this event and how the media is beginning to openly talk about the true nature of the assassination. Judi and I also touch on western collaboration with Rwanda. Judi explains the CIA’s role in aiding Rwanda during the genocide and afterwards during its military operations in Zaire that overthrew Mobutu. We also talk about the exploitation of minerals in Congo by western companies under the auspices of the Rwandan military.
We finish the conversation by talking about Kagame’s silencing of activists, whistleblowers, and journalists in both Central Africa and Western Europe. Judi discusses the importance of speaking out and what we can do to expose Kagame and the RPF’s massive crimes.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 20 The Falsification of Genocide with Keith Harmon Snow

This week we are joined by independent journalist Keith Harmon Snow for an extended conversation on the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda and it’s effect on Congo and central Africa. This is a longer podcast than usual, but one I am especially proud of. For the most part I take a back seat and just let Keith break down the truth about what actually happened during those infamous 100 days, and how that event reverberated through out Africa. Keith names names and connects a lot the dots in this complex story involving the Pentagon, multinational corporations, mass media propaganda, and the brutal slaughter of millions in the pursuit of domination and money. Keith breaks down how the Tutsi elite, with the backing if the US, UK, and Israel, actually committed the majority of war crimes and acts of genocide. We explore how this was used as the pretext to invade and rape the Eastern Congo. Keith also goes into depth regarding the imperial history of Africa. I really suggest that you read through the articles in the show notes, as well as explore all of Keith’s writing. He is a fountain of knowledge on a subject that few here in the West fully understand.

M23 had “external support”

20130220-132851.jpg

More proof that the M23 rebel movment is a corrupt puppet army was provided yesterday by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. Referring to a three month report conduced by MONUSCO peacekeepers, Ban stated that the M23 movment had “external support” when they seized Goma in November of 2012. While this is a welcomed announcement, it is disappointing that Ban did not state who this external actor was. Especially since the UN has already stated the Rwanda and Uganda are the benefactors of the M23 movement; funding, controlling and providing the actual rebels themselves. We can most likely assume this is yet more arm twisting by the imperial US government and by the reprehensible warmonger Susan Rice.
