Well done the youth groups and well done the youth that have the sense to keep away from another war and becoming the pawns of another warlord or the like.

Congo is being totally dismissed by the UN, with 99 % of the foreigh investments there being chinese and condemned with the worst poaching issues in the world....ENOUGH!

Since the beginning of time there has been war! It will never change! Only people can change! Change attitudes, economy, and education. Tolerance of one another! Then no wars!
