The case of Rwanda is indeed tragic.  There are no signs of the region moving away from continuous wars and chaos allowing permanent imperialist interference and plunder of its resources.  The only acceptable solution would be diluting the violent inheritance of Rwanda through the building of a kind of loose “confederation” of the Great Lakes region, incorporating Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Uganda, and the Congo (there are Hutu/Tutsi minorities in all these countries), pursuing a common sovereign project as distant as possible from the Western powers.  An immense task for the popular and democratic forces in the region.
