Zafar Bangash, Ann Garrison, Scott Taylor
Zafar Bangash explains how the US created the Sunni militia, which became Al Qaeda and then ISIS in Iraq. Bangash points out that both the Shia and Sunni want to get rid of the barbaric ISIS, and they are moving forward in a careful and methodical manner (to avoid landmines and snipers). Once Tikrit is liberated then the destination is Mosul. There are no Europeans nor Americans telling them how to fight.

Ingabiere's "crime" was attempting to run for president of Rwanda and establish a real democracy. She was arrested and falsely charged with crimes related to terrorism, speech crimes related to genocide, as are many of those who attempt to support her in Rwanda and/or who question the Kagame regime.
Garrison also comments on the lunacy of Canadian public safety minister for invoking the Holocaust in an attempt to defend Canadian "anti-terrorism" Bill C-51, which would give the government extraordinary powers to target and jail Canadian peaceful activists.

Immigration lawyer Lisa Winter-Card discusses the strange case of Rwandan refugee applicant, Jean Berchment Habinshuti, who faces deportation

The present Rwandan government has a well-earned reputation for persecution of dissent. As Ms Lisa Winter-Card makes clear, Mr. Habinshuti is at risk.

The weight on Victoire’s shoulders is that of resource war, the ongoing wars for the world’s natural resources that threaten to destroy the whole planet. The fate of her tiny East African nation, Rwanda, is intertwined with the resource war in Rwanda’s vast, resource rich neighbor, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, site of the most lethal conflict since World War II. The Congo conflict has taken over 6 million African lives since 1998 alone.
