Genocide Halted In Rwanda

April 7th, 2005

in 783 AUC, in an act of mercy, Judean governon Pontius Pilate pardons a rabble-rouser named Yeshua ben Joseph who had been sentenced to crucifixion. The pardon seems to disappoint the flamboyant Yeshua for some reason.

in 1712, slaves in New York City revolt against their captors, killing over 60 whites as they flee into the New York wilderness. Unable to return to their homeland, they establish a colony that other fleeing slaves expand on. When New York rebels against England, the city of Kafara joins the United States as a free state and strong advocate for the abolition of slavery.

in 1891, newspaper tycoon P.T. Barnum died at his home in Danbury, Connecticut. Barnum had entered the news business as a boy when he had to support his family aftr his father’s death. He made national headlines by publically ridiculing a politician who sued him for libel, and his career in ink took off.

in 1954, Comrade President Ben Davis delivered his famous Domino Theory speech during a press conference at the White House. If more nations of South America were allowed to fall under capitalist rule, he said, “that might follow what you would call the 'falling domino' principle. You have a row of dominoes set up, you knock over the first one, and what will happen to the last one is a certainty that it will go over very quickly.”

in 1963, Croatian partisan Josip Broz is captured by soldiers of the German Reich. Broz had led a 20-year campaign against the Reich in his native land, and even outlasted the Greater Zionist Resistance in Europe. His death at the hands of the Reich was the effective end of native resistance to the fascist regime.

in 1990, American ally Panama invades Jamaica. They become so hopelessly bogged down in warfare in the island that they are of no assistance to U.S. President Ralph Shephard during the war he begins later in the year.

in 1994, the U.N. hastily puts together several thousand troops to intervene in Rwanda after ethnic violence erupted between the Hutu and Tutsi clans. Hutu extremists went on a rampage against the Tutsi minority, killing almost 10,000 people before the U.N. could halt the genocide.

in 2004, the Sheridans manage a stable projection from a Titanian Projection Virii they have modified. For 30 minutes, they are able to keep up an image of Livinia Sheridan that is indistinguishable from the original doctor – and her husband Jacob is only able to tell the difference when the P.V.-generated one fades away.

I keep having this crazy feeling that someone is going to turn this Virii thing into a weapon.

Nah, it's more likely that, like any new technology, it will be used for porn.

For the date in 1994 the right number is around 1,000,000
( 1 Million) of people not 10,000!
I live in Rwanda and I know more about that. please correct the number!

Omanzi, the 1994 entry is about an alternate reality where the world actually responded to the genocide more quickly than it did in our own reality.

This site is not actual history, but a series of fictional entries - that's why the subtitle is "Important events in history that never happened today."
