Hypocrisy v2.0

So while the US and others are stumbling around in Iraq, generally being ineffective as the country slides inexorably into sectarian violence, things in the Congo continue to devolve.

Where are the UN or US troops to "help promote democracy and free a nation from terror"? 120,00 people displaced, thousands murdered by rebels and government troops, "systemic sexual abuse" of the female population by both sides of the conflict and no armed international force to help them.

The Congo is an area where people are regularly being hacked to death with machetes. The Congo is a place where people are being used as fodder in a tribal conflict over a mineral resource; in this case diamonds. So, again I ask, where is the giant protector of freedom and bringer of democracy?

I guess our leader was too busy making money deals on our seaports with the Arabs. I am keeping my passport current. It's getting scary over here in the land of the free folks.
