#1 Maybe, we've been sucking up to the wrong allies for our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Kenyans certainly know how to deal with terror organizations...and have you noticed the lack of hand wringing and angst by the western media? If this had been a Brit, Frog, or US incursion into Somolia, the MSM would be having a hissy fit over dead duckies, puppies and kittens.

I say we ask Kenya to send some of their troops to Afghanistan, shut the door and look the other would be interesting.

It's also interesting that the only two countries in the world with the stomach to deal with terrorism as it should be dealt with are Kenya and Sri Lanka. The western leaders are hamstrung by the ninnies in the press and the opposition at all cost mentality of election politics...even if it is a survival issue.

Well, yes. That's because there's no 'white man's guilt' (which also includes the Japanese, btw)involved.
