Revelation 13:1 "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy."

Revelation 13:3 "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."

Daniel 10:20 "Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come."

What are the most traded currencies in the world?
  1. US dollar (USD)
  2. Euro (EUR)
  3. Japanese yen (JPY)
  4. Pound sterling (GBP)
  5. Australian dollar (AUD)
  6. Canadian dollar (CAD)
  7. Swiss franc (CHF)
  8. Chinese renminbi (CNH)
  9. Swedish krona (SEK)
  10. New Zealand dollar (NZD)
The top 10 most traded currencies in the world



10: Australia - (5)
9. Democratic Republic of Congo
8: Venezuela
7. The United States - (1)
6. Brazil
5: Russia
4. India
3. Canada - (6)
2: Saudi Arabia
1: China - (8)

Which 10 Countries Have the Most Natural Resources?

So there are 4 currencies which are among the top 10 most traded which belong in the top 10 Countries of 'natural resources'.

But why wouldn't the other 6 Countries which supply the most 'natural resources' be among the top traded currencies?

Democratic Republic of Congo
Venezuela
Brazil
Russia
India
Saudi Arabia


All these are independent Countries.


So, without natural 'raw' materials, 'good(s)' cannot be produced nor manufactured.


Now... could any king who establishes himself up, who sets himself up, who exalts himself, be abled to without the use of either currencies or 'raw' materials?

It is sometimes referred to by its former name of Zaire, which was its official name between 1971 and 1997. The DRC borders the Central African Republic to the north; South Sudan to the northeast; Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania to the east; Zambia to the south; Angola to the southwest; and the Republic of the Congo and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. It is, by area, the largest country in Sub-Saharan Africa, the second-largest in all of Africa (after Algeria), and the 11th-largest in the world. With a population of over 78 million,[3] the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the most populated officially Francophone country, the fourth-most-populated country in Africa, and the 16th-most-populated country in the world.

Joseph Kabila Kabange is a Congolese politician who has been President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo since January 2001. He took office ten days after the assassination of his father, President Laurent-Désiré Kabila. He was elected as President in 2006. In 2011, he was re-elected for a second term.

Joseph Kabila Kabange and his twin sister Jaynet Kabila were born on 4 June 1971. According to official accounts, the twins were born at Hewabora, a small village in the Fizi territory of the South Kivu province, in eastern Congo. Rumors have abounded that Kabila was actually born in Tanzania, which would make him a citizen of that country.[5] He is the son of long time rebel, former AFDL leader and president of the Congo Laurent-Désiré Kabila and Sifa Mahanya.

Kabila's childhood coincided with the low point of his father's political and military career. He was raised in relative remoteness, with few records of his early days. Kabila attended a primary school organized by his father's rebel forces, before moving to Tanzania where he completed primary and secondary school. Due to his father's status as an enemy of Zairean strongman Mobutu Sese Seko, Kabila posed as a Tanzanian in his school years to avoid detection by Zairean intelligence agents.

So although the term 'President' has Republic/Democratic undertones, it may not always mean that is such.



Congo Free State (1877–1908)
Belgian Congo (1908–60)
Independence and political crisis (1960–65)


In May 1960, a growing nationalist movement, the Mouvement National Congolais (MNC) led by Patrice Lumumba, won the parliamentary elections. Patrice Lumumba thus became the first Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The parliament elected as President Joseph Kasavubu, of the Alliance des Bakongo (ABAKO) party. Other parties that emerged included the Parti Solidaire Africain (PSA) led by Antoine Gizenga, and the Parti National du Peuple (PNP) led by Albert Delvaux and Laurent Mbariko.

Democratic Republic of the Congo - Wikipedia


The Democratic Republic of the Congo is sometimes referred to by its former name of Zaire, which was its official name between 1971 and 1997.


Zaire (/zɑːˈɪər/), officially the Republic of Zaire (French: République du Zaïre; French pronunciation: [za.iʁ]), was the name of a sovereign state between 1971 and 1997 in Central Africa that is now known as Democratic Republic of the Congo. The country was a one-party totalitarian dictatorship, run by Mobutu Sese Seko and his ruling Popular Movement of the Revolution party. Zaire was established following Mobutu's seizure of power in a military coup in 1965, following five years of political upheaval following independence known as the Congo Crisis. Zaire had a strongly centralist constitution, and foreign assets were nationalised. The period is sometimes referred to as the Second Congolese Republic.

The Hutu /ˈhuːtuː/, also known as the Abahutu, are a Bantu ethnic or Social group native to the African Great Lakes region of Africa, primarily area now under Burundi and Rwanda. They mainly live in Rwanda, Burundi, and the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, where they form one of the principal population divisions alongside the Tutsi and the Twa.

Hutu - Wikipedia


The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi,[2] was a mass slaughter of Tutsi in Rwanda during the Rwandan Civil War, which had started in 1990. It was directed by members of the Hutu majority government during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994.[1] An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed, constituting an estimated 70% of the Tutsi population.

Rwandan genocide - Wikipedia


Authenticité,[a] sometimes Zairianisation in English, was an official state ideology of the Mobutu regime that originated in the late 1960s and early 1970s in what was first the Republic of Congo-Léopoldville, later renamed Zaire. The authenticity campaign was an effort to rid the country of the lingering vestiges of colonialism and the continuing influence of Western culture and to create a more centralized and singular national identity. The policy, as implemented, included numerous changes to the state and to private life, including the renaming of the Congo and its cities, as well as an eventual mandate that Zairians were to abandon their Christian names for more "authentic" ones. In addition, Western style attire was banned and replaced with the Mao-style tunic labeled the "abacost" and its female equivalent. The policy began to wane in the late 1970s and had mostly been abandoned by 1990.

Zaire collapsed in the 1990s, amid the destabilization of the eastern parts of the state in the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide and growing ethnic violence.

The Hutu is the largest of the four main population divisions in Burundi and Rwanda. According to the Central Intelligence Agency, 84% of Rwandans and 85% of Burundians are Hutu, with Tutsis the next largest ethnic group at 15% and 14% of residents in Rwanda and Burundi, respectively.

There is an ongoing debate as to whether the Hutu and Tutsi are really separate groups or not; the government of Rwanda seems to no longer use any such distinction.

Additionally, many Hutu speak French, the other official language of Rwanda and Burundi, as a lingua franca.

As of 2006, violence between the Hutu and Tutsi had subsided, but the situation in both Rwanda and Burundi was still tense, and tens of thousands of Rwandans were still living outside the country.

Hutu - Wikipedia

Tutsis are the second largest population division among the three largest groups in Rwanda and Burundi; the other two being the Hutu (largest) and the Twa (smallest). Small numbers of Hema, Kiga and Furiiru people also live near the Tutsi in Rwanda. The Northern Tutsi who reside in Rwanda are called Ruguru (Banyaruguru),[4] while southern Tutsi that live in Burundi are known as Hima, the Tutsis who resides in Masisi which is in Kivu and they are known as Banyamasisi and the Tutsi that inhabit the Kivu plateau in the Congo go by Banyamulenge.

The definitions of "Hutu" and "Tutsi" people may have changed through time and location. Social structures were not stable throughout Rwanda, even during colonial times under the Belgian rule. The Tutsi aristocracy or elite was distinguished from Tutsi commoners, and wealthy Hutu were often indistinguishable from upper-class Tutsi.

Rawalpindi: Youngsters in Pakistan are the most affected by drugs and alcohol and the number of these addicts is increasing at the rate of 40,000 per year making Pakistan one of the most drug affected countries in the world while the most disturbing fact is that majority of heroin addicts are under the age of 24.

The growing trend of drug abuse in educational institutions has posed a serious threat to the lives and health of students as the college and university students use drugs freely and openly.

According to one survey, one out of every 10 college/university students is a drug addict and almost 50 per cent students of different educational institutions particularly elite schools/colleges in Islamabad/Lahore are addicted to drugs, and majority of these students belong to elite class, having no issue of affordability.

Head of Community Medicine at CMH Lahore Medical College Professor Dr. Muhammad Ashraf Chaudhry expressed this while talking to ‘The News’ in connection with United Nations International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking that falls on June 26 every year around the globe. He said the drug abuse jeopardises students’ health, both physically and mentally, because of which they cannot concentrate on their studies. “The widespread availability of drugs in Pakistan is making souls of youth lifeless and it is need of the hour to come up with effective measures to curb this menace.”

Drug abuse among Pakistani youth rises to alarming level




Literacy rate is very low in Pakistan as compared to other countries. Pakistan's literacy rate has declined from 60 percent to 58 percent, as revealed by the economic survey of Pakistan.

Literacy rate in Pakistan



Afghanistan has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world, currently estimated at about 31% of the adult population (over 15 years of age). Female literacy levels are on average 17%, with high variation, indicating a strong geographical and gender divide.

Afghanistan attempts to counter drug use through sports

KABUL -- Afghanistan's Ministry of Counter Narcotics is joining forces with sports authorities in a unique attempt to prevent drug use among youth.

The ministry and the Afghanistan Cricket Board on June 11 signed a contract to build two sports stadiums in Helmand and Zabul provinces. They will be finished in a year, estimate officials.

Ground-breaking will take place after Eid ul Fitr, according to the Cricket Board.

The idea is to give youth a healthy outlet for entertainment and to raise awareness of the dangers of drugs.

"The government, including the Ministry of Counter Narcotics, and the international community have been trying for more than a decade to eliminate the cultivation, processing and production of narcotics, but unfortunately this dangerous and deadly phenomenon has yet to be curbed for various reasons," Minister of Counter Narcotics Salamat Azimi told Salaam Times.

Only about half the people in Rwanda and Burundi can read and write in their native language. Even fewer can read and write French. There are schools for teachers and at least one university in each country. Well-educated persons speak French. Rwanda's educational system was disrupted by the 1994 conflict.

Hutu | Encyclopedia.com

Rwanda's population density, even after the 1994 genocide, is among the highest in Sub-Saharan Africa at 230/km² (590/mi²). This country has few villages, and nearly every family lives in a self-contained compound on a hillside. The urban concentrations are grouped around administrative centers. The indigenous population consists of three ethnic groups. The Hutus, who comprise the majority of the population (85%), are farmers of Bantu origin. The Tutsis (14%) are a pastoral people who arrived in the area in the 15th century. Until 1959, they formed the dominant caste under a feudal system based on cattleholding. The Twa ( pygmies) (1%) are thought to be the remnants of the earliest settlers of the region. Over half of the adult population is literate, but no more than 5% have received secondary education. During 1994-95, most primary schools and more than half of prewar secondary schools reopened. The national university in Butare reopened in April 1995; enrollment is over 7,000. Rebuilding the educational system continues to be a high priority of the Rwandan Government.

How Rwanda has combated abuse and trafficking in illicit drugs

The world on Friday celebrated the International Day against Drug Trafficking to raise awareness on the dangers of illicit drugs to society.

According to 2014 statistics from Kigali Health Institute, more than half of the youth in the country (14-35 years) have consumed one or different types of drugs.

Dr Yvonne Kayiteshonga, the head of the Mental Health Division at Rwanda Biomedical Centre, says one-in-13 youth is alcohol-dependent.

This is cause for concern considering that figures from the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda show that out of a total population of 10.5 million, the youth represent 40 per cent, and, in urban areas where the drug problem is thought to be more rampant, the youth population is recorded at 53 per cent.

Police says abuse of drugs and illicit alcohol are considered to be the root causes of most violent crimes, especially gender-based violence.

Marijuana and a local brew commonly known as ‘Kanyanga’ are among the most consumed illegal substances.

Local leaders say the brew that finds its way from neighbouring countries through porous border points, has found a niche in Rwanda. It is relatively affordable, going for as little as Rwf250 a litre.

According to statistics from Rwanda’s top mental health facility – Ndera Neuropsychiatric Hospital – as of last year, in just four years, patients who checked into the facility with alcohol and drug induced mental illness almost tripled.

“Statistics at Ndera hospital, Kigali, show that 11 per cent of the patients registered have ailments related to drug abuse,” Jeanne d’Arc Dusabeyezu, the in-charge of drug abuse prevention and treatment at Rwanda Biomedical Centre, said.

“I was a drug addict for about 3 years. That time was punctuated with spending nights on road sides, and hurling insults at strangers,” confesses Eugene Niyitegeka, who has since overcome the addiction.

“In 2009, we treated 440 patients with substance abuse-related ailments but, by 2012, the number had risen to 1,099,” said Jean Michel Iyamuremye, the director of nursing at Ndera Neuropsychiatric Hospital.

Police are constantly involved in run-ins with dealers and consumers of illicit drugs and brews across the country.

While Police destroys any confiscated substances to raise awareness and deter any potential dealers and abuse, the forces of demand appear to be having an upper hand.

Theos Badege, the commissioner for Criminal Investigations Department, says Police always come up with measures to break the supply chain and rehabilitate the addicts.

Eastern and Western provinces had the highest cases of drug abuse in the country as of June last year, Police figures show. The two provinces border countries where the substances are largely smuggled from.

According to the Rwanda Bureau of Standards, any drink whose alcohol content exceeds 45 per cent is considered a banned narcotic drug.

The UN Office on Drugs and Crime estimates that every year, 210 million people use illicit drugs.

Constitutional, Totalitarian, Unilateral, Bipartisan, People's Republic.... what are the youths doing while the leaders are engaging in Cross political talks with every other Country besides their own citizens?


In the U.S, it is reported that the 'majority' of illicit 'drug' users are of the 'White' category. Although they could be more 'wealthy' than certain other 'race' groups, theirs has the highest usage(s). So Education and wealth are not necessarily 'indicators' that 'drug' 'determent' is there.


Ideologies have impacts on personal views, whether it be told in truth or in lies.

Adolph Hitler, Albert Einstein, Emperor Hirohito, Mahatma Ghandi..... These all had personal 'ideologies' to which they believed upon. Not only by 'sight' but by 'reason' also.


2 Corinthians 5:7 "(For we walk by faith, not by sight: )"
Romans 1:17 "The just shall live by faith."


Ideologies have impacts, whether it be told in truth or in lies, even to those that 'see' such lies or truths being 'verified' by those certain 'ideologies'.


The LORD and God and (J)esus Christ calls us, asks us to: "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." - Isaiah 1:18

342,465.75..... to be 'spent' each day from the day of birth to the day of birth in the 80th year, to spend 10 billion, 'whatever(s)'.

Monies, sex, drugs... What do they have in common?

They cause 'dependencies' if not watched over carefully.
