"Behind the Numbers: The Plunder of Central Africa"
Interview with journalist, Keith Harmon Snow. "Genocide" in the Darfur region of Sudan is analyzed in the context of global investment capital, natural resource exploitation, "intervention" media war propaganda masquerading as humanitarian effort. The militarization of the region by the U.S. and other nations.
The take-over of Uganda and Rwanda by rebel forces supported by the U.S. is discussed, as well as the role of Uganda and Rwanda in the destabilization of the entire region to facilitate competing global corporate interests in the plunder of Africa's great mineral and oil wealth. The film "Hotel Rwanda", publicized as based on historical fact, is revealed as fiction, to cover the manipulation of internecine wars in the exploitation of Rwanda's resources by western business interests.
