The D.R. Congo crisis must be resolved, not militarily but strictly politically and diplomatically. Period! French government driven UN security council Resolution 2098 of march 28, 2013 is a nasty, dangerous and very expensive sort of folly: gimmicks with hidden agenda, technically incompatible with peace and security in eastern Congo, neighboring Rwanda and the great lakes region as a whole. The interlacustrine region of Africa runs the risk of turning into a mighty fireball if care is not taken to nullify said French government & UN folly of follies.

A reminder: all the calamities we have had in the d r Congo over the last 20 years issue from a similar folly the French government dragged the UN into: the June 1994 Zone Turquoise!

Conniving with UN secretary general Boutros Boutros Ghali, French diplomats quickly drafted “a UN security council resolution” in French President Mitterrand’s office at the Elysee in Paris, June 1994, when they realized they were irreversibly defeated by the Paul Kagame led Rwandan patriotic front’s rebellion. They then rushed to New York and had it signed in a twinkle of an eye: the “zone turquoise” was signed and immediately implemented:

Defeated genocidal armies and militia of the politically and morally bankrupt Habyarimana government were thus allowed free retreat into Congo , then Zaïre, with all their heavy armaments and war planes.

That was the Pandora box France opened into the d r Congo. Now they want to open yet another Pandora box into the whole great lakes region of Africa!

President Obama and world peers: beware! Forewarned is forearmed!
