Into Africa: Now the Yanks want to join the party

Gene Expression has a compelling piece on a proposed US intervention in Liberia. The conclusion is Africa: don't go there. Of course there will be plenty of people - possibly among the post-Libertarians on Samizdata - who would say that we need to go in and force freedom on the Africans.

If any of them still read non-Leftist-Imperialist blogs (I don't care what you call yourself - you want to use my tax money to export "freedom" and you're a lefty) any more there's plenty of warnings from my new favourite American columnist Gary Brecher, the War Nerd:

Please Don’t Eat the Pygmies
Congo: the War without Battles
Live from the Skeleton Coast
It's D-Day In Zalambessa
