such a striking piece visually


ProfessorZhirinovsky

Just an excellent piece of artwork in its own right. You could hang this one on the wall in your house, and people would admire it without knowing anything about the subject.

Minor nitpick: The African heart has the Sinai peninsula but not the fist Africa.

Rip to a great. Fuck the CIA.

Killed by the CIA. Normal day in the third world.

Technically, the CIA only helped Mobutu to coup him (first coup ever in Africa) and then let local Belgian agents and Katangese operative to torture him to death before dissolving his body in acid.


LibertarianLeninist

Yes. The belgians and Mobuto had most of the fault in this tragedy. Congo suffered through 40 years of Mobuto's kleptocratic dictatorship and 20 years of civil war following that. 5 million people died only in the congo wars... Imagine what could've been if Lumumba had stabilized the country alongside Kasa-Vubu...

Even Tschombe becoming PM on 1965 would have been better than the guy who was so corrupt we had to invent a new word to describe it.

Patrice Lumbuma: Killed Kwane Nkruma: Overthrown Muammar Gaddafi: Assassinated

It's sad that Africa a big continent is treated like one big monolithic country. Imagine doing the same with Asia.

That's how everyone treats Europe.
