Congo: A splendid victory!
[Posted: 18.05.97]

So now it's confirmed: Practically the whole of
Kinshasa, and thus the whole country, has been
liberated, and the last part has been with very
little bloodshed. Only at a certain military camp
are some units of the old "presidential guard"
putting up a last-ditch resistance; no doubt it
will be broken soon.

The founding of the Democratic Republic of Congo
has been announced. Congratulations!

It was fun to watch the huffing and puffing and
grumping on the news broadcasts just now, att
00.00 hours GMT, by the news services of some of 
the imperialists. One speaker even still was 
calling the AFDL "the rebels" - the news hadn't 
yet sunk in properly there. A very positive 
thing, this development in the Congo, for the
entire international situation.
