U.N. Has New All-Female Peacekeeping Unit

Click on the title of this post to see a BBC news story about this all-female unit.

I just thought this was an interesting story. Folks are hoping that one result of their presence will be a decrease in the exploitation of women and girls in Liberia, where they are now deployed. I hope so.

Yeah, and we're supposed to be the ones spreading Democracy? I think we've lost that title. We're spreading something but it ain't Democracy!
