    I think it is time for their own thread.

    So any comments on Mali or the Algerian BP hostage situation?

    Bravo to the various forces fighting these desert thugs. I took a trip through Morocco into Mali and Senegal about 10 years ago. All I encountered was friendly welcoming people and I felt relatively safe. There was poverty, but not to the point of malnourishment, disease and widespread homelessness.

    It would be a shame if these people I remember become victims of these ruthless Sharia thugs

    On NPR they were talking that we (the USA) may set up drones in Niger to help out the French.

    Perhaps Alarmist, but Burundi could be going the path of 1994 Rwanda and just like then, we (the world) will probably just look the other way.

    Zuma survived, about 30 members of his party voted against him, but he was able to hold on as his party voted to support him.

    Kenya has less violence this time (good), the losing candidate is still claiming a rigged election, he will sue to the supreme court, and will probably lose.

    WOW, I am not sure what will happen, but this is great for the independence of Kenyas courts.
