I think you have all the story facts except one: The people of Eastern Congo have never been recognized as Congolese citizens since more than two decades ago. And that is partially the reason why M23 is fighting even though they themselves are not clearly stating their reasons of fighting. Discrimination against the people of the Eastern Congo by the Kinshasa government for over almost a century turned many men from E. Congo to take up arms and fight. Their fight is legitimate but because of the nature of the land (rich in mineral resources) and because of the African rampant corruption, war becomes beneficial for outsiders instead of inhabitants. UN or U.S.A , can not do anything to stop that Congo except and only if Eastern Congo becomes independent. If you think that Joseph Kabila is a puppet of Uganda and Rwanda, do you think Mubutu Sese Seko was too? what about Laurent Kabila? It's been like that for decades and decades. No Congo president who has ever considered building roads, hospitals, schools and any social center of infrastructure in the Eastern Congo. That alone gives Eastern Congo young men fight. In your article, you called rebel leader, Bosco Ntagand a Rwandan, but he is not. Yes many of Banyamurenge people (Eastern Congo tribe) resemble Rwandans, speak a 95% similar language but they are Congolese including Bosco Ntaganda, Laurent Nkunda, Masunzu and all other rebel leaders. These leaders have been to Rwanda like any other has. Kagame grew up in Uganda but was Rwandan, Kabila grew up in Tanzania but was Congolese so rebel leaders of M23 are not Rwandan. Therefore, consider understanding the point that although the war has done a lot of harm to innocent civilians, the sole causer is the government of Congo, its failures, discriminative systems and corrupt policies and the solution is only and only one: Separation of Eastern Congo from the Congo Kinshasa.

I'm a Congolese student in the USA. I'm tired of hearing this and that about my country. Let me ask you this: what would stop the fighting, and the curruption, I want peace for my country. I want to be able to take my family one day and not worry about getting kill or shot at. What does the Congolese people need.

Dieudonne , the problem is too complex and too deep to find a straight solution, from my point of view to get ride or the current Congolese government will be a good start and also to find a way to cooperate with the US government as we r not in power to oppose them way of bullying us coz they r the ones responsible of indirectly fueling wars in Eastern Congo for their interests.

Who knew Somali, Sierra Leon, Rwanda, Uganda, and more would finally have peace? Even Congo will.

It's time we Congolese wakeup and do things for our self, find ways to fixed our own problems cuz no one will fixed them for us. As long as we blame other for what they did to us and looking back in the past, will not help us. We are still in the past, and most everyone else is in the present. I want us to be in the future, not the past or the present.
There is hope for DRC.

Really? I guess not. UN has 17000 soldiers in Congo and have done nothing secure other than insecure. Do you need facts ?
