    FYI: Liberia was a colony founded by America for American freed Slaves. (This was part of Abraham Lincoln's vision before he was assassinated, some historians note.) Liberia's flag is just like ours except it has ONE big star instead of 50.

    Liberia used to be Free and Peaceful years ago when President Tubman, a Christian, was alive. After he died, Liberia has become more and more chaotic, ruled by wicked militant leaders, including Charles Taylor who has aided al-Qaeda in finances by funneling diamond smuggling trade from Sierra Leone (in which thousands upon thousands of innocent civilians and Christians have been slaughtered).

    Thousands of people have thronged to Monrovia, the capital, begging for the US to intervene, it has been reported by cable news, BTW.

    I would agree with the idea of sending troops to protect our embassy in Liberia. [​IMG]

    I would be curious if you have a link for this. Neal Boortz on his website say that there was not any evidence of Taylor's support for terrorism. Perhaps you have a source he does not know about.

    A while ago there were actually rumours going around that Charles Taylor is a cannibal.
    Normally I wouldn't mention this, but I heard it on the most politically correct radioprogram in the Netherlands. &lt;De andere wereld van zondagmiddag&gt; The sort of place they never say anything that might come across as stereotyping.
