I just came across Code Pink Women for Peace's “How Obama Welcomes Peace Activists,” a report about how nicely the Obama People treated them, on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009, while they danced the "Yes we can-can for peace" in Washington D.C.
I've tried, several times since 01/20/2009, to explain to Code Pink activists, that Obama invaded D.R. Congo, with African proxy armies, on Inauguration Day, 01/20/2009, and, that the Congo War is the most lethal conflict in the world, and, that the U.S. military industrial complex could not manufacture for war without the geostrategic mineral wealth of D.R. Congo, the most resource rich nation on earth.
But, to be fair to the goodhearted women of Code Pink, and, to the “beautiful, quilted cozy” that they've been knitting “to cover the fence in front of the White House to honor Mother's Day," May 10, 2009, they are far more conscious than most Americans, who, as Friends of the Congo Director Maurice Carney says, “can't even find Congo on a map.”
