    Hand it over to the UN. They'll take care of it.
    Then our Liberal populace will find a way to blame it on Republicans.

    Could we fix our society's problems before we devote billions of dollars to some hell hole that will never get it's act together? Or do we want another Afghanistan?

    not a good analogy...

    Afghanistan had its shit more-or-less together, albeit in a fucked-up ragheaded way, before we ever went there... people in Afghanistan were never subject to famine...

    if we dared to try to intervene in any of the various shit-holes in Africa in any kind of meaning way, despite our good intentions it would be an absolute disaster of nightmarish proportions...

    Send in the Peace Corps if you want, but don't use our military as Policemen of the World.

    That won't work because our Military is ALREADY under UN control. Obama and Panetta already said so.

    Africa should be France and Britain's problem. They created most of the messes there.

    true dat...

    Germany, Belgium and Italy also had a hand in it...


    Liberia is 'bout the only spot on the continent for which we should have to bear some direct responsibility...
