AU Mission to Libya. Pot, kettle, black?

15 Apr

The irony of the African Union mission to mad dog Qaddafi has not passed me by…..but it seems to have escaped most news reports.

Mauritania. Not a lot of democracy there. Be an opposition member if you dare! Words like campaign, terror spring to mind. Plus of course Uganda: two headlines this week – trip to Libya and violent crackdowns on peaceful dissent by the opposition. Not to mention the country headed by rape-charge dodger and polygamist Zuma. Congo – a haven of peace and tranquility.

Not so much a mission – more like a gathering of war criminals and manipulators attempting to gain publicity abroad while deflecting attention from human rights abuses back home.
