        Amen.  Sitting in a waiting room today, I read a last summer's article
in NEWSWEEK or some such entitled YUGO'S WAR.  It told how this butcher riding
around in Zaire in a Toyota Land Cruiser with his gang would arrive in a
village, locate several persons and simply execute them viciously.  Obviously,
he was dealing with an unarmed population.  He could carry on his massacres
with impunity.  The population was pretty much helpless.  They wailed a lot and
then buried their dead and their heads.  Such predators could not operate in
area where they could easily be shot by an armed and vigilant population.
