I decided to create this for the sole purpose of ranting. I needed somewhere to voice my opinions. Many of you will not agree with me, but i'm not here for you; i'm here for me. You can expect anything to be said here. If I have an opinion, I will most likely rant about it. This is my little home away from home. This is where I put my thoughts into words. You can also expect lots of grammer mistakes, and typing errors. I will do my best to look over what i am typing, but for the most part, I don't exactly care. I am not very old, therefore I am not very wise, so expect nothing magical and brilliant. Well, let this be the begining of my blog.
Make sure you follow! Also, comment with your opinions!

Democratic Republic of Congo?
Well, I was doing homework the other day, and the news was on in the background, and that is when I heard that the European Union, was going to meet and possibly make plans to occupy Congo, because of the civil war. This is a good idea and all, attempting to get rid off the rebel groups, and maybe give some of the refugee's some of their life back. It seems to me though, that maybe entering Rwanda, or Uganda, would be a better idea. It seems that the genocide that has taken place in these areas, has not yet ended. And what about the child soldiers. Well, I guess Congo most likely also has them, but it seems that Rwanda has been in much greater need of an occupying foreign army for a longer period of time. From what i've heard, learned and have been told, nothing was done in an attempt to save the hundreds of thousands that were slaughtered here. Don't forget the millions still stuck in camps. Well, I guess not NOTHING, was done, peace keepers were sent to the region, but what can they do. They keep the peace, not make it, and when there was no peace to be kept, what good were they. Maybe the U.S would be better off helping Africa re-build, rather then destroying Iraq, and stealing it's oil. But if oil is the only reason they are there, then maybe they could move next door to Afghanistan and increase the U.S troop count there and to fight the true war on terrorism, along side the Canadians and many other foreign countries. Back on topic though, Congo is a place in great need of foreign help, I just think they shouldn't JUST focus on it.
