RE: “France’s guilt will push it deeper into ridicule” (The New Times, October 13).
The only thing the French can do is to try to deflect attention from their role as an active accomplice to the Genocide against the Tutsi, before, during and since.
They have continuously done this—with the help of their media, paid Genocide denier individual ‘academics’, lawyers for genocidaires and a large network of various genocidaires-supporting institutions around the world to try and focus on what, in the context of the larger crime of genocide, is really an irrelevance: the bringing down of an aircraft—be it of a president—over the capital city of a country in the throes of civil war.
The scandal in all this—that testifies to enduring racism—is that many western governments and opinion-makers feign to believe the French are engaged in bona fide criminal investigations about the Genocide, when all these worthies know fully well the primary role the French played in conceiving, organising for, and setting off the spark for its launch.
I have no doubt given everything we know that the French military or their paid mercenary agents, with Paul Barril in the thick of things, brought the aircraft down themselves as the starting gun for the Final Solution for the “Tutsi Problem”.
It wouldn’t be the first time the French have been involved in assassinations on the African continent and beyond.
