Our Illustrious President has decided the whole of North Africa is the next stop on our little World Tour for bringing better days and brighter
futures to people who aren't asking for it, don't want it and will kill us for attempting it. When I saw your headline, I was hoping it would only
be French involved (The French fighting for the Colonization of Algeria goes well back into the 90's and before...Long and BAD history there).
Well... I have to say I have limited sympathy on first glance. Unless they are media. what are they DOING in Algeria? This isn't a major tourist
must-see and it's absolutely not a Western-Friendly place to start opening new plants and factories for Western business. So.....we got some
intelligence officers or military snagged, eh?
Maybe not...but if they aren't? The bad guys won't care much for the difference. Americans probably ought to stay OUT OF at least a few nations that
flat don't want us. Algeria would be on the short list, indeed.
Thank you for your well and quickly written comment Wrabbit,
This is not about the good old U.S of A in my eyes (and probably in the eyes of many others too)... and Westerners have been implanted in Algeria and
have helped to maintain jobs over there for many years... ex : textile, oil, telephone platforms and many others etc etc...
I respect that you may have limited sympathy, (could you make things clearer as to why you have limited sympathy please if it's not too much to
ask...) it's not happening near to where you live so you have nothing to fear about do you?
Apparently and also in your eyes this place is not a major tourist area?.... (where do you live and where did you get this info from... statistics...
The French fighting for colonisation of Algeria goes well back to the 90s???? That's new to me and to probably 99.999 per cent of the French speaking
population on this planet... It goes back Waaaaaay long before that.
Come on Wrabbit, please do some history homework before wrabbiting on about something that apparently you haven't done your homework about please.
I quote "Unless they are media"... could you please make things a little clearer?
My initial thread was to just make people aware of what was going on real time... not to create heavy debates... bla bla bla...
If you don't want to answer to my questions feel free not to, but may i suggest that at least do your homework first before typing please.
