Bloodshed has once again come to the Democratic Republic of Congo, where Congolese forces and U.N. peacekeepers, equipped with attack helicopters, battle the supposedly Rwandan-backed M23 militant group

Indeed Cal, with the eyes on one area so many are forgotten about. One only has to read the words that were in the article to understand, how something on such high proportions of human suffering is never much spoken upon.

"The renewed fighting poses a serious humanitarian threat in Congo, where around five million people have already died since 1998. It remains the bloodiest conflict since World War II."

Horrific, and thanks Cal for doing a noble deed in bringing this to the attention of others. I just hope that they will take the next step and notify their Leaders to not overlook the suffereing of these people.

Noted. There has been violence and killing in DRC going back at least to the mid-60s that I can remember.
