King Paul is finding new medals – not in USA or UK anymore. The medals from the USA/UK have dried up. Kagame is getting medals from the Arab world these days. The hunt for new medals is on. Kagame just landed a new medal from Morocco.
Meanwhile a new US Congress “national security white paper” places his regime in the company of tyrannical regimes around the world.
According to the White Paper, “the historic expansion of freedom worldwide has been eroded by democratic backsliding. Many of the democratic transitions that marked the end of the Cold War and were sustained over the following decade have stalled or reversed.
Freedom House reports that 72 countries experienced a decline in freedom in the last year, while only 43 countries posted gains, continuing a decade-long decline in global freedom…In Rwanda, a constitutional referendum on presidential term limits will effectively allow President Paul Kagame to stay in power until 2034.
In Venezuela, the regime has cracked down on the opposition and imprisoned itsleaders such as Leopoldo Lopez.
The regime in North Korea likely has the worst human rights record in the world. Over 140,000 North Koreans are kept in forced labor camps where many are worked to death. Yet for years, the global community, including U.S. administrations, largely ignored this barbarity in a failed attempt to arrest North Korea’s nuclear development.”
