Charlie Rose on the Congo

From December 4, features Anthony Gambino, Suliman Baldo, and Severine Autesserre. For non-U.S. readers: Charlie Rose is the "high-brow" evening news and culture show on PBS, our non-profit TV network.

The participants on what needs to happen:

Autesserre: Can't wait three months. Many of the problems are over land and local power. Need a European or multinational force going in.

Gambino: End the lawlessness. Need to get DRC army back in their barracks, ceasefires among other groups, and effective military action against one group in particular: the FDLR. A force is needed because the armed groups operate in bad faith. The US needs to work with other actors, help put together the necessary coalitions.
