Darfur?

Jack Wheeler echoes my thoughts:
If there is anyplace in the world that America has no interest being involved in, this is it. And yet, liberal outfits like SaveDarfur are repeatedly taking out full page ads, … demanding "President Bush, Stop the Genocide Now!" … There are no good guys here - not the government, accused of supporting the Janjaweed, not the tribal crazies. But for liberals, that's the only justification for the death of American soldiers - only when it is not to fight for American security, only when it is purely "altruistic," only when there is no American reason for risking their lives whatever.

It isn't politically correct to go after the nation that airdrops munitions and supplies to the Janjaweed militias in the Sudan from their "UN bases" in Chad.

The nation I speak of is France, also known as New Algeria.

If ever a people deserved to be nuked of the face of the Earth for anything, including entertainment value, it would be the French.

Add Haiti, I love the Haitian people but the place is a mess.

What are the French success stories as far as colonies are concerned? England gave birth to the USA, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. To be sure there are many examples of ex-British colonies that have floundered and one giant, India, that still struggles but what are the French success stories?

Haiti doesn’t look good; French Indo-China went down the drain; Algeria is terror-ridden; French Equatorial Africa (I can even remember these names) is broken into many problems. Quebec is fine but who gets credit there? There must be an example … Guadalupe?

Let’s see USA, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia on one side of the scale.

Guadalupe on the other.

Tip tip tip crash!

Come on Jason . . . the French gave us New Orleans, which happens to have the highest population of stupid people of anywhere in the USA (besides Washington, D.C. of course).

France has the anti-Midas touch.

Everything they touch turns to shit.

Esso is developing Chad's oil fields under a contract set by Chad's current President. That President is under threat by a rebellion supplied by the Sudanese regime through Darfur, there is rebel column marching on Chads capital and the President has a tank parked outside his residence. Hardly in American interests to let a Sudanese friendly regime take over Chad.
