ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the hostage crisis in Congo. It mentions the initiatives of the several diplomats for a political solution, believing that the military powers of the Communist-backed rebel Simba have already surpassed that of the Congolese and mercenary forces. Moreover, it highlights the need for the U.S. and Belgium to send increased logistic and material support than trying to polish the ineradicably tarnished image of Congo Prime Minister Moise Tshombe.
