Solome skeptical friend does raise a very interesting but critical question. Can Africa continue to indulge in these military responses to crisis scenarios? Should African nations continue to use the same tactics in attempting to achieve peace on the continent? I wonder how far militarism can in fact achieve peaceful ends. If anything it sounds much like a contradictory then anything to me.


I also am skeptical of a militaristic approach to solving this problem, especially if it is the only approach being taken. What is being done to address the underlying causes of the problem namely resources, arms trade, poverty? and who is addressing these problems? I'm not very knowledgeable about the history of this conflict, but I feel addressing the issue at its root is important.
