#2 A commie can do no wrong. Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot killed millions. No big deal. Ironically, obooboo is getting bad reviews for not being red enough...

#4 War was started long ago and the entire regions happily remains in a constant state of on again-off again tribal conflict. Appears to be a French rescue mission and spanking of sorts. As you are aware, they've made a fairly large economic and cultural investment in Chad and some of the neighboring areas. With examples such as Detroit and Chicago as optimal outcomes, my guess is they'll wisely stop short of any attempt at "nation building".

#5 The French have generally provided the firepower, while letting the locals do what they want with the defeated. And that is how decisive victories are won, via merciless bloodlettings.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
