  • Education is not what it used to be.

    "I will just assume from common sense that we are talking about the Sierra Leone education system." What gives your senses the illusion that I am talking about the Sierra Leone education system? I will just assume from common sense that we are talking about the Sierra Leone education system. One may assume from common sense that the heart of my argument lied with the education system in America and not Sierra Leone, but I digress.

  • Developing countries should prioritize environmental protection over resource extraction

    Experts claim that the illegal sale of blood diamonds has produced billions of dollars to fund civil wars and other conflicts in various African nations, including Sierra Leone (where conflict ended in 2002), Angola, Liberia, Ivory Coast and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). For example, in Sierra Leone a group known as the Revolutionary United Front killed, threatened, and even cut off the arms of people living and working in diamond villages until they were able to take control of the mines in the area. Then the group moved on to the next village to do more of the same, effectively terrorizing the entirety of Sierra Leone, to the point that many people fled their homes in fear.

Opinions

  • Is Uganda's 'Kill the Gays' bill wrong?

    All nations from the USA to Uganda to Sierra Leon must uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights set by the United Nations, especially Uganda considering that they are a United Nations member state.

  • Should the United Nations have its own permanent standing army?

    Genocide in Rwanda illustrates this incapacity, as do the massive killings of innocent people in Cambodia, the former Yugoslavia, East Timor, Sierra Leone, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, the Sudan, and elsewhere. This would make a strong statement to the offending government and could dissuade potential conflicts in the future.
