Disturbing massacres are full of contradictions, as always. The
CNN anchor has a hard time with the Algerian minister, who accuses Amnesty International
of inflating the figures and not knowing the full story.
What is the full story in Algeria?
Algerian Media Links, News From Algeria, Travel to Algeria.
After years of Islamic insurgency, and over 80,000 slaughters
later, the European Union, United States and Canada all agree that their think-tanks
should be doing something about it.
But there's always a bigger problem.
The French have the most at stake, as former colonial rulers, but this
time they are not as concerned about the forgotten country in North Africa as they are
with the repercussions it could have in their own.
There is already a large Algerian community in France, and fears are that more people will try to escape
to safety across the Mediterranean.
With the genuine refugees always comes the odd terrorist.
That is their thinking, and there have been enough Islamic funded
bomb scares on French soil for the French to be even more concerned.
Our computer connections are bringing many people together in greater
understanding, but we still can't stop these humiliations to humanity, committed in cold
blood by fellow human beings.
