    First Congo War also nicknamed "Africa's First World War" was a civil war between the DR Congo-icon (1997-2003).png ALDFball and Zaire-icon.png Zaireball After the war modern DRC government was estabilished.

    It all started in a poor, kleptocratic state called Zaire-icon.png Zaireball, ruled by Mobutu Sese Seko-icon.png Mobutu Sese Seko. Mobutu Sese Seko-icon.png he got into power by killing socialist Congo-Léopoldville-icon.png prime minister Patrice Lumuba in a coup backed by Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball and the CIA-icon.png CIA. Mobutu was evil as hell and was willing to silence opponents, but because many of his views were anti-communist such as supporting the Portuguese in Portuguese West Africa-icon.png Angolaball (and as said helping killing Patrice, who was a socialist), USA-icon.png USAball and Union of South Africa-icon.png South Africaball were willing to support Zaire-icon.png Zaireball for the rest of the Cold War.

    In Rwanda-icon (1962-2001).png Rwandaball'a clay however, the Tutsis felt oppressed by the Hutu government and started to rebel. As a result, this led to a horrible event; the Rwandan Genocide OMG CAN PEOPLE STOP BRINGING IT UP FOR 3 SECODNS WHEVER THEY TALK ABOUT RWANDA. This led to many tutsis fleeing to Zaire-icon.png Zaireball. Hutu extremists, Rwanda-icon (1962-2001).png ALIRball and Interahamwe-icon.png Interahamweball also fled to Zaire, and used refugee camps to try to build a coalition to invade Rwanda.

    To reduce a rebellion by the Tutsis, Zaire-icon.png Zaireball started supporting the Hutus to kill the Tutsis in its clay. But this only made Rwanda-icon (1962-2001).png Rwandaball pissed off, because the Rwandan Civil War ended and the Tutsi government led by Paul Kagame ruled the country to this day. Now that the Tutsis, have the higher ground in Rwanda, they started giving weapons those of the Tutsi who fled to Zairian lands. They eventually invaded Zaire-icon.png Zaireball with the help of Uganda-icon.png Ugandaball & Burundi-icon.png Burundiball, all three of which which Mobutu had supported opposition groups against.

    DR Congo-icon (1997-2003).png Congolese Laurent Kabilia believed that by sibing with the invaders and rebels, he can end Zaire-icon.png Zaireball, bring a Democracy-icon.png democratic state, and improve living conditions in the Congo. Well, Zaire-icon.png Zaireball's dictator had been dying anyways. DR Congo-icon (1997-2003).png Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Congoball was created and operated in the eastern portion of Zaireball, and overtime, the more the war went on the more territory Kabilia helped foreign invaders seize. Zaire-icon.png Zaireball had to rely on mercenaries from around many countries in Africa with some from Europe, with the promise of giving them access to African resources. The Zaire-icon.png White Legionball was made up with former Yugoslavia-icon.png Yugoslaviaball for example, defended Kisangani until it fell.

    Months after, Angola-icon.png Angolaball started sending troops near the capital.

    Eventually, Kabilia and his allies reach Kinshasa-icon.png Kinshasaball and the DR Congo-icon (1997-2003).png Democratic Republic of the Congoball is proclamed. To avoid capture, Mobutu Sese Seko-icon.png Mobutu flees to Morocco-icon.png Moroccoball, where he dies a few months after.
