Machetes, Not Guns Were Used In Rwanda to Murder 1 Mil.+ People in 28 Days of Genocide. Were The Machetes Responsible...

Mr. Costas? When it comes to murder, murderers will always use the most lethal of weapons available to them. No guns; no problem--they had machetes! Imagine if the people in Rwanda had guns, could a million+ people have been slaughtered? I, personally, don't think so. Even if both the murderers and the people had guns, it never would have happened--guns would have saved many of their lives!

"Innocents Betrayed" is a documentary that proves that in the 20th century alone 170 million defenseless, unarmed, innocent people have been slaughtered and are in their graves now via "death by government" (their own or by a foreign government). These innocents were betrayed and murdered and couldn't defend themselves, nor defend their families because they weren't allowed to keep and bear arms for their personal protection! They didn't have a Second Amendment. See it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAU9AJfttls

By the way, Susan Rice the then Secretary of State for Africa during the Clinton presidency, stood by and did nothing! Yes; the same Susan Rice who Obama wants to replace Killary Clinton as the new Secretary of State, according to this article entitled "Obama’s Adviser On Human Rights Accuses Susan Rice of Being a Bystander to Genocide" @: http://www.ethiopianreview.com/content/41216)

They used machetes for the

They used machetes for the most part, but there were also guns at every checkpoint. Entire classes in pre-schools, kindergartens and grade schools were gunned down with machine guns. This is a better argument against imperialism, intersecting with the right to self defense.

Rwandans were divided by European interests, and this is just another example where the U.S. and U.N. ride in like White Knights and use the opportunity for a racist foreign policy to be validated under the presumption that only white people can save black people from themselves. It's akin to the pro-Lincoln story.

There is a big Neo-Lib anti-gun show

Goin on. On Piers Morgan tonight. It sickened me so badly I couldn't bear to watch it anymore. They had Dershowitz on and Piers was agreeing with him every goose-step of the way.

When they were talking about how the murder rate is lower in some countries "because" of stricter gun laws I'm thinkin:


These Neo-Libs are idiots. The floozy they had on arguing "FOR" gun rights was a moron, couldn't convince a starving man to eat a hamburger.

I have the hood and grill of a pick up truck that should be prosecuted for hunting out of season. They got me a 10 pt buck going down a country road a couple years ago.
This is as ridiculous an argument as these idiots blaming guns for crimes of violence. It never has been about gun control it has always been about people control.


The real story here

is that the UN let it happen, and that's not the first time, either.


Best to ask Madeleine Albright why that was.

Not exactly the case.

UN troops on the ground were forced to stand by and watch the massacre take place. In some cases, hand over Tutsi people that had sought protection from them, just to see them hacked to death.
Fortunately some individuals, in contravention of standing orders, assisted many to safety. If it was not for the French military intervention, in disregard of the US led, UN resolution, the mass murder of the Tutsi people would have continued.

100 days of slaughter.

On a related note,

The UN is supposed to stop things like this from happening. But, of course, they didn't do anything until it was over.

See what happens when you take the peoples guns away?


That's a good argument

Yes the Rwanda genocides were horrible and what not, I'm glad I never have had to experience something like that. But this example is a great tool for a debate against gun control.

I thought so, ...
