    UN reports over 500 rapes in eastern Congo

    UN reports over 500 rapes in eastern Congo - Yahoo! News

    Khare told reporters after the council session that around 15,000 rapes are reported in Congo each year.

    UNITED NATIONS – The United Nations reported Tuesday that more than 500 systematic rapes were committed by armed combatants in eastern Congo since late July — more than double the number previously reported — and accepted partial responsibility for not protecting citizens.

    "While the primary responsibility for protection of civilians lies with the state, its national army and police force," said Khare, "clearly, we have also failed. Our actions were not adequate, resulting in acceptable brutalization of the population of the villages in the area. We must do better."

    Rape as a weapon of war has become shockingly commonplace in eastern Congo, where the government army and U.N. peacekeepers have failed to defeat the few thousands rebels responsible for a protracted conflict fueled by vast mineral reserves. Luvungi is a farming center on the main road between Goma, the eastern provincial capital, and the major mining town of Walikale.
    Some disgusting numbers from the homeland to use as reference.
    Rape Statistics

    In the Congo these women are dependent on the UN, but at home the solution is simple; allow people to arm themselves. Then the pricks will never know who can bring them down.

    It IS that simple. Armed targets rarely get raped.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It is often a good idea to be weary of simplistic solutions.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yeah, what the Congo needs to stop the rape problem is more education, help groups, university studies, and non-rape incentives.

    No, the women need to be able to shoot the rapist's penis through the back of his ass with a single shot. That's what they need.

    And then we'd have to pay for a UN Program to help "Gun Shot Tranny's" have a normal life. No they need to aim for the center mass, and keep firing till the targets dead.
