Shortly after my post “Military Incapacity”, a few hundred Tutsi rebels evicted the “Congolese Army” (poorly equipped black Cathedral third world armed forces) and seventeen thousand “United Nations International Peace Keepers” equipped with helicopter gunships and suchlike (better equipped and not quite so black Cathedral Armed forces) from the city of Goma in the Congo.
This a straightforward conflict between a minority less inferior black race, and a majority inferior black race, with the Cathedral, naturally, backing the inferiors. The inferiors were in the way of efficient extraction of mineral resources, in that their intolerable crime levels disrupted productivity, hence the need to evict Cathedral forces so that order could be imposed and commerce proceed.This is not the beginning of the end, far from it. The beginning of the end will be when something similar happens a lot closer to the European heartland. I have been expecting anarcho piratism. The rebel takeover in Goma is much more orderly than I expected, imposing the order required by the productive, rather than destroying what little order the Cathedral supported and then stealing whatever is not nailed down, which is a promising portent for the future. The unproductive, living on Cathedral welfare, were evicted, which the Cathedral perceives as disorderly, though I see no reason why the Cathedral should not feed its pet parasites somewhere further away from anything that they can wreck. The rebels are acting like stationary bandits right from the beginning, rather than undergoing a long, slow and gradual transition from mobile bandits to stationary bandits, which is what I was expecting, and still rather expect.
