RE5: Actually happening?

Check out this story from Uganda.

"According to officials trying to tackle it, the crime is directly linked to rising levels of development and prosperity - and an increasing belief that witchcraft can help people get rich quickly."

Wow. This is more macabre than any transnational quasi-corporational terrorist plot for immortality featuring a matrix-ripoff villain. And I love RE5! Now who's up for doing steroids and searching for their old partner in Uganda? I call the Hydra.

Uganda's president is no stranger to battling some rather heinous causes, even if they don't involve malevolent parasites. Paul Kagame led the Rwandan Patriotic Front during the Rwandan genocide. For a good read on that, check out the book We Wish to Inform You that Tomorrow We Will be Killed with Our Families. Although Phillip Gourevitch clearly idolizes Kagame, Gourevitch's account of Kagame's exploits is pretty cool. Basically they marched in with a ragtag army and radios and just captured ammo and supplies as they went around, killing or imprisoning people involved in genocide. It was like...a video game plot. A good video game plot.
