    Yeah, the LAST thing private Ugandan citizens need is guns. Don't they realize that the government is doing this for their own good?

    It's Africa...who cares?

    I'm not purposely trying to sound like an asshole, but seriously...who cares? The only thing they have that we want is their sparkly rocks (read: diamonds).

    The only other thing Africa is good at is proliferating AIDS and murdering their own people.

    It's really crime that we burn/throw away billions in foreign aid over there considering the money could do a lot more over here.

    I've actually considered that a small [50?] group of well-armed, well-trained men could take over an African nation.

    I would never go to Africa unarmed, period. If the lions don't get you the natives will.

    These guys were heavily featured in a TV show about mercenaries a couple of years ago (comes on the Military Channel now and again)... the wiki doesn't have much info but IIRC they consistently prevailed against overwhelming odds with few casualties.
