Letters: U.S. money for mass murder

December 25, 2012

Re "Pressure mounts on U.S. to curtail aid to Rwanda," Dec. 21

This article casually mentions the killing of about 5 million people in Congo, many of them by rebels assisted by Rwanda, which receives U.S. aid.

I was under the impression that the civilized world (which includes the U.S., although after recent events one wonders) had agreed with the Jews after World War II to adopt the motto "never again." Now it appears to have changed to, "Well, it's OK as long as they are not white."

Now we give money to the perpetrators of this mass murder while cutting funds for essential services to the poor at home. Shame on our civilized government.
