2. Are you still pushing the Rwanda mythology?

 

Western powers intervened in Rwanda years earlier, arming the sides in the eventual civil war. Rwanda was a French client state. The US set up, armed and trained the RPF under Kagame in the years before it invaded Rwanda in the attempt to take power - prompting the Hutu militia to initiate a genocide. During the genocide, France invaded Rwanda to secure the retreat of the Hutu Power killers. Only in the United States and among a very select class of humanitarian imperialists (outside the "reality based" community) in the mode of Samantha Power does anyone confabulate that the Rwandan genocide occurred because of a lack of Western intervention. It happened with the support of dual Western interventions!
