Troops for Africa?

It's only been 10 years since the mess in Solmalia, are we ready to go back into another African hellhole on a mercy mission trying to restore peace. Perhaps, perhaps not, either way we should go and the Bush administration has the chance to quiet some critics of the US only going after oil, etc. There are no big money resources in Liberia but we have the chance to mine a lot of credibility in the process. If we are serious about speading peace then lets be serious, especially when the locals are begging us for help.

UPDATE: Here is James S. Robbins on why Liberia is an opportunity. It just adds fuel to the fire.
