The interesting thing about most militia focused conflicts in Africa is the way in which they wage their wars against each other. They wage them in the purest form of warfare. They advance on an area and completely destroy its way of life, they take from the people their ability to take care of themselves by disfiguration, and they take away the ability to give birth to their own peoples by way of rape. However, the key to any successful military campaign is the occupation of physical land space and the symbolic measure of controlling the capital. The march on Kinshasa is that symbolic measure. The real generational effect is the massacre of the offending tribes. Such that the Hutus were killing the Tutsi to make themselves dominate, they were pushed out by the Tutsis from the North. Interestingly enough, they settled back around Lake Kivu, which being nourishment for life also is in close proximity to many high demand resources. As the militias continue to fight, at a group-think scale it is easy to gather people and support against a common foe (the evil Hutu's who "started it") but in modern times, we can probably safely assume that natural resources and the wealth that come from the control of them is the real motivator for whomever is behind the ear of the mobilizers. Interesting thing about the typical routes of march on Kinshasa and the Congo is that, yes, they begin on the border locations of Hutu camps but those areas are on both North and South sides of the Lake Kivu. Lake Kivu is the world’s tenth largest inland lake, which is also fresh water, which is drinkable, not to mention the fisheries it can host. Aside from the huge advantage that comes from potentially controlling the whole lake, instead of sharing it with Congo, is that large amounts of copper, cobalt, & coltan are located around it. It needs not be said how important those three resources are in today's markets. It also deserves mention that it is known that the Eastern Border with Rwanda supposedly harbors many violent individuals and groups. In the realm of international politics, this could be attributed to the proximity of Rwanda and their assumed intelligence activity in the area, perhaps funding anti Congo and Hutu groups and individuals ala "sleeper cells" that Islamist Terrorist groups are known to use.
