On Tuesday, the African Union expressed its "grave concern" about the situation. "The (AU) Commission strongly condemns the indiscriminate firing on unarmed civilians, which left dozens dead and many others injured, while serious other violations of human rights were committed," the AU stated.

Human rights groups say they have had reports of soldiers bayoneting people and women being stripped and raped in the streets during the protest. Junta head Capt Moussa Dadis Camara denied knowledge of sexual assaults. But he admitted that some of his security forces had lost control.

Monday's violence was the worst since Camara seized control of the world's top bauxite exporter in a December 2008 coup. But the junta leader said he was not responsible for the deaths and would still hold meetings to decide on whether to stand in a presidential election due in early 2010.

Bit sick, isn't it?

The guy who led the coup promised full democracy and that he wouldn't stand for President, then reneges on his promises and stands anyway, leading to these disturbances. To roder your troops to fire upon, rape and bayonette your people is twisted.

It's guys like this that need to be "regime changed" and this country has rich Bauxite and other mineral deposits. Why waste time on Iran?

Maybe there is not much more to add about this tragic event, but I felt a need to post something about it.

Any democratic improvement seems bleak, at best.

Let's not forget that so very many people on the African continent suffers just so that we can ease our thirst for more resources.

Bauxite (Wikipedia)

We seem to let them have their way, as long as we can maintain ours for a couple of more generations.

The colonization of Africa has not stopped, not even decreased, through history.
It just keeps getting worse.
Now, we don't even have to get our own hands dirty; they can do that for us.
One hand washes the other.

They starve so that we may eat.
They live in war so that we may live in peace.
They die so that we can live.

What ever we think we give to them in charity, we take twice as much from them. Be it food, natural resources or knowledge (known as "Brain Drain").

And when we have sucked them dry as a bone; what do we give in return? Some vague promises and a couple of white tents to live in.
Let the volunteers take care of that.
It's the perfect scam.

It is happening every day, right in front of our eyes.
I hope you take a moment to think about that.

Sorry if I ruined your day...
