DRC: 250,000 Congolese forced to flee and scores of women raped are nothing more than pawns in Nkunda’s game and used as negotiating chips

NKUNDA'S AT IT AGAIN
It’s 10 days or so since I left Goma and I see that it remains business as usual. A bunch of thugs are still trying to hold an equally thuggish government to ransom and the media continues to give General Laurent Nkunda far more credit than he’s due…
Note, Rob's unfair dig at the BBC for reporting Nkunda's warning of war.
Given Rob's statement that "the media continues to give General Laurent Nkunda far more credit than he’s due…" I wonder why Rob labels Nkunda as a thug but respectfully refers to him as a General.
My understanding is that Nkunda is a civilian and a self-appointed General. A thug and terrorist group leader. A General, no.
Surely, respectfully referring to Nkunda as a General gives him far more credit than he's due?
