      And people say that the Africans are our cultural equals..
      I'd say the intention of this invasion was good.
      If anything I'd say the AU should invade all the countries where greedy dictators refuse to give up power so more capable democratic leaders are elected that actually have Africa's best interest at heart.

      It was more a reflection of the leader being unwilling to give up power than the invasion (assuming they leave peacefully).

      Yeah, i'm generally a supporter of liberal imperialism. I'd be quite happy for the west to occupy a country for 40 years so that a whole generation is raised with our values (obviously in the meantime there'd be a lot of unhappy people and obviously its not going to happen).

      Do we know if the new leader is a Muslim?

        Yes he is a Muslim. Though he seems to be less power mad than his predecessor and has a few campaign promises that sound good enough. We'll have to wait and see.

        Honestly, Islam (no offence to Muslims before I'm called racist or something) is like a parasitic leg dragging the continent behind. It has stalled what would have been progressive developments (Gender equality, LGBT rights) and Islamic terrorism has robbed countries of time and money used fighting the terrorists that could have been better used elsewhere. It's sad really.

        Yahya Jammeh is an Islamist nutjob. Thank God he's going.
