Nuance

Sometimes I read something that makes me remeber what I've forgotten from my short trip to Congo, namely the nuance and complication of the situation. This is what makes advocacy so difficult, the lack of stark enimities, the diffuse dragging nature of the fight. Read this view of the Hutu rebels in the east that I've been talking about. They were too young to be genocidaires. They are rag-tag. Some fight for ideals, some fight for bread, some don't remember what they're doing there and would like to go home but are afraid... all of these guys joined various militia groups in the mid-and late nineties, and this is the ongoing fallout. And since there's no law where they are the criminals among them go unpunished, and the population despises their predation...

Hi: Just came across your blog. Intersting post and good looking site. I'm definitely going to visit again! I recently set up a new website just about **San Diego plastic surgery** There are a lot of interesting plastic surgery/cosmetic articles. So, if you have an interest in San Diego cosmetic surgery please stop by and let us know how we can improve the site.

Thanks
