Great article in Slate today about how friends of America can do no wrong......and foes well..they're just plain foes
Who's Africa's Worst Dictator?
Hint: It's probably not Robert Mugabe......
(of course that doesn't cover Saddam Hussein who was a friend and was even sold some of the 'tools of war' by the USA that he was later accused of using and then Invaded/Hung for being a foe, but thats another story).
Go support Slate and do something good for the nations IQ.
