General Bosco Ntaganda and Kase Lawal both hit the news again this week.  Ntaganda on trial at the ICC, Lawal looking to benefit from a $3 billion dollar investment from a South African public pension fund.  

Lawal, became one of President Obama's top trade advisors in 2009, but quietly stepped down after UN investigators on DR Congo published a report documenting his failed attempt to smuggle $75 million worth of gold out of Goma, but General Bosco had other ideas.

democracy? 
banker fueled dissension,
simple, create unemployment, so the people have too much time on their hands, then just raise food prices to where people are actually hungry,  then put mega dollars into organizing demonstrations, then throw in agent provocateurs on both sides to escalate the violence, 
then put in the money to the people who are willing to sign up with up with them first. and withdraw the money from the people they want to lose. 
those countries were democracies, 
and they will be what ever the bankers want them to be when this is over.
