Good News or Bad News?
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is to go to Kenya amid efforts to end the violence that erupted after a disputed presidential election. President George W Bush said Ms Rice would back the mediation efforts led by former UN chief Kofi Annan.
She would press for an immediate halt to violence, justice for victims, and “a full return to democracy”, he said.
Hmmm … In most cases, when the US sticks its oar in, things go from bad to worse – not always, but usually. I’m surprised they even know where Kenya is! And it has to be remembered that the President sending Ms Rice gained his first term through apparently murky means.
And … watch out for friendly fire!
