I do not think we should get involved unless its our turn to send UN troops. These tribal wars will never have peace the belgians could not sort them out when they ruled the area. the only solution is to divide the area of congo, rwanda, burundi into smaller nations aligned to tribal areas but the rich deposits of stones and minerals will mess that up plus other african nations may be backing various sides.

a quagmire we should keep out of.

Not many troops are left after the current deployments.
And the MoD would probably only send The
Parachute Regiment or Royal Marine Commandos.
The UN is the Congo's best bet.
