    While I understand the need for awareness, I must, however, denounce the insidious endeavors of this author. When asked questions like why nobody seems to be aware of this, he typically brings answers such as 'it's because it's complicated' and then goes further explaining : 'there are no Adolph Hitler figure in this conflict.' Which is his goal. Downplay and even hide the role of such men as dictator Paul Kagame of Rwanda and his allies. He even goes further when tries to bring things such as the origin of the uranium of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, thus suggesting that somehow this extremely wealthy country deserves its curse...This is actually the approach he presents in his book every time he has an opportunity to talk about it.
