Aggression Against Chad Roils Central Africa

In Roman Times, it was the Huns. They had to be kept abay for the safety of the Empire. They couldn't be ignored and when Rome failed to defend itself, eventually it fell.

It is the same kind of world today, only more so. When we see the modern day Huns running amok in Africa, it is clear that we have little choice but to respond. If we don't, the consequences could be dire.

So, the latest developments in Chad, where Sudanese aggressors are wreaking havoc, killing and murdering. A small French force, flown in from Gabon, has been trying to master the situation.

We simply are fated to fight these wars. Better in the Middle East and Africa than here. But still, because of the threat of weapons of mass destruction, it doesn't mean it's not serious.

The papers are so full of the violence in these benighted areas, there is little else in the news sections these days. But the big papers are doing a good job keeping us up to date.
