The Kenyan government and its main opposition group have agreed to a four-item agenda that includes a promise to end the violence that has wracked the country for more than a month, former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan announced at a news conference Friday.UPDATE: In the comments to this post, BL@KBIRD writes:
The first three items, to be completed within a 15-day period, are: stopping the violence and restoring fundamental rights; taking immediate measures to address the humanitarian crisis; and promoting “reconciliation, healing and restoration,” Annan said. The fourth item, which could take up to a year, aims for a resolution to the political crisis, the former secretary-general said.
So, what is the PC approach to Kenya this week? Still not allowed to say M****m or I***m?
You know what, BL@KBIRD? You don't even have to come here if you just want to insult somebody. This isn't Hot Air. And, yes, I consider the assertion that I am PC an insult--especially by somebody who who patently doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground with regard to me, my father's country, the work I've done on the crisis in Kenya or the work I've done on this blog for four and a half years.
My father and step-mother--who are Luos, who are not Muslims, whose tribe is not made up of mostly Muslims (in spite of a Free Republic ignoramus-authored comment to a post) and who are the same tribe as Odinga and Obama, the communists--are trapped in Kenya and could be killed simply on setting foot outside or being pulled out of their car. You see, after the Luos and the Kalenjin (you do know who they are right?) set upon the Kikuyu, the Mungiki (you do know who they are right?) understandably want revenge. They’ve already taken in upon at least one MP, so what do they care about one old journalist—even one who continues to call for an end to the massacres?
So you’ll forgive me if I don’t indulge your Islam versus Christianity fantasies or those of all the other ersatz Kenya experts out there on the web. I don't claim to know the nearly enough about the situation. That's why I study the situation every day, gather facts, look at every angle possible on what might be happening, try to come to conclusions on the smaller issues and try to delay the larger ones until the facts and how they fit together, are in.
Too bad others are not following this method and are, therefore, talking out their ass about things they wouldn't care about if they couldn't spin them.
If you were smart, you'd be more worried about the communists right here on your doorstep rather than the Islamists under your bed. If you were smart.
Have a nice weekend.
UPDATE: And the idiot is still trying to tell me that all Luos are Muslims. Now I see what I'm dealing with.
