So the Casamance is no longer a dangerous place. The Senegalese government has signed a peace deal with the rebels. This is very good news for that region, and for all of Senegal.

And as MeFi points out the folly with some of the governmental relief efforts:

Our country is more humanitarian than YOURS is! No it’s not. Yes it is. See? We donated more aid than you did. Well, we doubled our donation. So there. But yours are loans, not donations. Nuh uh. They’re donations. Are not. Besides, we’ll triple ours. And we’ll send planes. You wouldn’t. Watch us. Well then, we’ll just octuple ours. Yeah? I bet you won’t. I quadruple dog dare you. I hate you… you know that, right?
