Liberia: January 30, 2001



  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.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  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.
