Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Ruud Lubbers, top UN Refugee Official, shows he just doesn't get it. Speaking about the continuing massacre of people in Liberia he said.

"This can't go on," Ruud Lubbers told a small group of government representatives during a stop Wednesday in the war-blasted West African country's capital, Monrovia.

"You're killing your own people," he said.

In Monrovia on Wednesday, Taylor was a no-show for what had been a scheduled meeting with Lubbers.

Clearly annoyed, the U.N. refugee chief spoke flatly with local reporters who asked what the United Nations was doing to aid Liberia's war-displaced. "Your president makes it totally impossible," Lubbers answered.

Jesse Jackson pal, Charles Taylor couldn't care less about the average Liberian. They just get in the way. All he needs are his militias and the slaves necessary to extract Liberia's gold and diamonds. The rest can die and rot. Ruud thinks that pleas like this mean something to mass murderers like Kim, Taylor, Saddam, and other tyrants.They think we need only appeal to their decency and the killing will end.
