the Unreported Wars of Ethnic Cleansing
Ethnic Cleansing Continued ....
From the former Yugoslavia in the West, to Distant Russian Asia, to Pakistan, India, South East Asia, to Indonesia and beyond, to Northern and Central, and Eastern Africa; an unrelenting War of Ethnic Cleansing has begun and is continuing, much of it unreported.
The East African nation of Ethiopia is the latest US Terror War ally to turn its guns on indigenous peoples in a zone coveted by corporate interests for its natural resources.
Four months after armed forces of the ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Defense Front (EPRDF) and settlers from the Ethiopian highlands initiated a campaign of massacres, repression and mass rape deliberately targeting the Anuak minority of Ethiopia's southwest, atrocities and killings continue--and the situation remains in whiteout by the Western media.

After North Korea, what foreign crisis poses the greatest danger to the United States? It's surely not Bosnia, Haiti, or Rwanda. My candidate is Algeria.
Algeria may lack the drama of nuclear weapons, besieged cities, or masses of starving refugees, and so we tend not to pay much attention to that country of 28 million Muslims on the southern shore of the Mediterranean Sea.

For the past 10 years, Algeria has been wracked by a murderous spate of blood-letting by diehard Moslem fundamentalist guerrillas, directed mainly at the secular regime and costing thousands of civilian lives.
The wave of violence began after January 1992, when the army stopped a general election a Moslem fundamentalist party was poised to win.
According to official figures it has since claimed more than 100,000 lives. An unofficial toll based on press reports and official statements runs to 150,000 dead.
Algeria achieved independence 40 years ago after a violent insurrection against French rule between 1954 and 1962. Between 200,000 and 400,000 lives were lost in the war, but the National Liberation Front (FLN), which fought French rule and was for years after independence the country's only political party, puts the figure at some 1.5 million.
