A scumbag is dead

The New York Times is reporting on the death of (yet another) African strongman. Foday Sankoh, the warlord from Sierra Leone who made mutilations his signature weapon of war and came to symbolize the face of deranged cruelty, died Tuesday night in the custody of a United Nations-backed war crimes tribunal, officials of the court announced today. Sanokah was trained in Libya alongside of another whack job named Charles Taylor (Liberia). Sanokah had an offensive in 1998 called “”No Living Thing.”” Remember the kid soldiers who hacked off people’s arms? You guess it. Reminds of me of something P.J. O’Rourke once wrote: “”Man developed in Africa. He has not continued to do so there.”” ]]>
