In today's Sunday NY Times, there is a truly and completely heartbreaking cover story. It's about the increasing frequency of brutal rapes in Eastern Congo - where rebels and ex-Hutu milita men from Rwanda and god-knows-who-else are acting to create the most hostile environment for women in the world. You'll have to read the article yourselves to understand just how heartbreaking this is - and only kilometers from the Uganda border, where fighting and violence has increased in recent weeks and months. It's not for the faint of heart. If the international community can't respond to crises like these - what is the point of having "UN Peacekeepers" at all??
