When is America going to send troops into DR Congo?
[Edited on 21-5-2003 by Fantastic_Damage]
The UN troops have been pulled back into Bunia for their own protection after the killing of two soldiers some 70 km north of the town.
There not!!! They don't care about a bunch of Africains, plus there is no oil there

The history of the region is almost unique: it was never really a "colony" of Belgium - by some very strange diplomatic skulduggery it was made in effect a personal possession of the King of the Belgians.
Other than commercial exploitation, little else was ever done there. IT remains uniquely "unwesternised".
One of the best short novels of the late 19th Century is Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" set in the Congo: well worth a read, based on Conrad's own experience.
Perhaps Estragon we should all pretend that peace above all is so important that eating others is well within the UN Charter????
Estragon I have neither the desire or need to insult you despite your
inclination to do the opposite.
To be very honest I couldn't care less.
Simply stating an opinion Estragon, if you do not like it perhaps you would seem more credible by attacking the opinion and not the person responding.
In your last response prior to mine you cited military action with respect to 1940.
That to me is a joke with respect to how much technology has advanced since then.
As far as your concern about Sars given what you have said about your life its understandable.
While some gentlemen may cry peace other's cry for liberty specifically from the BS
