  Fighting continues on the area where the borders of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea Bissau meet. Liberia tolerates rebels from both nations, who set up camp in Liberia and raid into the neighboring nations. Guinea Bissau has been making attacks into Liberia to try and deal with the rebels. The Liberian government has made deals with the rebels and gotten involved in the diamond and arms trade. The UN is putting pressure on Liberia to stop supporting the rebels, but so far Liberia's response have been words, not deeds. Liberia even refuses to get involved in the fighting on its own border areas.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
