(Excerpt) Read more at foxnews.com ...
Now the US Armed Forces are the taxi service to the world.
I believe we already have about 5000 troops there.
DEFENSE SECRETARY HAGEL = Valerie Jarrett................
Are we leaving Afghanistan yet!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don’t worry the French just upped their total troops to 1500 - That should do it!
One side of this fight is Muzzie and the other side is Christian correct? If so which side are we being a taxi service for?
Maybe the French and Burundians will kill the Mohammedans down to the last one in the Central African Republic—but then maybe not.
It’s the new Rwandan Response. The world ignored the Rwandan genocide and it ended up making the civilized world look bad. So now we have to make sure we(the First World) keep skin in the game.
:) You voted for these clowns, America. Can you believe it?
next Bammy will build them a high speed train.
Departing from the UN in NYC.
It’s fashionable to rip on French troops on FR, granted . . . but their performance in Africa of late leaves nothing to scoff at . . . .
didn’t helping the french out of a bad situation get us into viet nam?
Another group of Moslems run amok no doubt.
WHAAAAT??? I guess O is just bowing to every one these days .except for Christians. They can be slaughtered with impunity
would these be the Hutu or the Tutsi Burundians I wonder?
>> You voted for these clowns, America. Can you believe it?
Hey! I didn’t vote for *these* clowns.
Instead *I* voted for the Two Stooges (McCain and Romney). Three stooges, if you count W.
It sucks to always have to choose between the Joker and the Penguin.
From that article it looks like the Christians are trying to take their country back from Muslim rebels (now Muslim rebel is president). ??? Are we going to be fighting for Muslim who overthrew the Christian president????
Luckily France is there to stop Obama and McCain from supporting the terrorists. But I don’t know if the French will stay.
1500 rifles cheap... never fired... dropped once.
What, more unused weapons on ebay 8-)
10:1 China just opened their arms spigot to full valve including covert advisors.
Wag the Jackal.
“The decision, amid warnings that the historically unstable country could be on the verge of genocide, would assist both French and African Union troops who already have been deployed. “
Let the russians or chinese take care of it.
When corporations buy and/or merge with one another, they consolidate and remove redundancy.
Same with nation states... gearing up for the global world order.
Does anyone know what has happened to the “advisers” sent months ago or last year to Africa to ferret out the War Lord Joseph Kony, what is going on? Obama is just going to drop more of our $$$ in Africa and nothing will change except our loss of more treasure, both monetary and life.
“If you LIKE your Burundians, you can KEEP them...”
Heck, someone has to surrender there so best be them.
Susan Rice’s war
I don’t see how anyone has problems with this. If we can use our vast military logistics to support a country that appears to have a constitutionally elected government in what was perceived as a fair election. These are more muzzies killing Christians in this scenario.
As for those of you who want to make fun of the French and their military, I can tell you that the French people are very proud of their military and the Legion Estranger (Foreign Legion) is an outstanding military unit.
If you want to complain about something, it should be that these Euroweenies spend all of their money on socialistic cradle to grave programs and one of the reasons is because they enjoy our free military support. The French owned much of North Africa including this territory at one time so I can see how they have a very close relationship here. However, we need to start sending them a bill or they need to cut down on the social programs so they can have a proper military like they used to when they owned this part of the world.
Are the Brundians Christians or Moslims?
“Its fashionable to rip on French troops on FR, granted . . . but their performance in Africa of late leaves nothing to scoff at . . . .”
Indeed. The French Air Force transported Moroccan troops to what was then Zaire in 1977 to fight Marxist rebels in Shaba province. The Foreign Legion itself took on those rebels a year later. I can think of other examples, like fighting Libyan troops in Chad back in the 1980s.
Religion in Burundi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

About 80 percent of the population of Burundi are Christian and about 15 percent are Muslim. The remainder practise indigenous religions, or have no religious
no Bill Clinton ignored Rwanda because if he “noticed” it, he would have had to do something.... and there were no aspirin factories at which to launch Tomhawks ..and there was an election coming up
his advisor was Susan Rice
Now she is fulfilling her fantasy of US troops in an African war
The Twa, Hutu and Tutsi peoples have lived in Burundi for at least five hundred years and, for over two hundred years, Burundi was ruled as a kingdom. At the beginning of the twentieth century, however, Germany and Belgium occupied the region and Burundi and Rwanda became a European colony known as Ruanda-Urundi. Social differences between the Tutsi and Hutu have since contributed to political unrest in the region, leading to civil war in the middle of the twentieth century. Presently, Burundi is governed as a presidential representative democratic republic.
Burundi is one of the five poorest countries in the world. It has one of the lowest per capita GDPs of any nation in the world. The country has suffered from warfare, corruption, poor access to education and the effects of HIV/AIDS. Burundi is densely populated and experiences substantial emigration. According to a 2012 DHL Global Connectedness Index, Burundi is the least globalised of 140 surveyed countries.
A half dozen A-10 Warthogs would cure the Muzzy’s problem over there.
Flush em out in the open and play Cowboys and Muzzys, kind of a high-tech whack-A-mole.
The whole world seemed to ignore it.
I'd rather not, thanks. In a few months, the whining on FR would be deafening. (And those people won't take kindly to being reminded that when it mattered, they were making old and lame jokes about the French).
In regards to my last post, my bad. They are still in a transitional government. I thought they had held elections, I was wrong.
We lost 3,300 people in 2 hours on 9/11/2001 because Clinton ignored what was happening in the world.
