Growing Pains, I Hope

First there was that fire on Independence Day that everyone thinks was arson, then the other day, the new head of State security (SSS) had two assassination attempts on him in two days, apparently by rival members of the SSS. And the second time, they killed his bodyguard.

If the two events have nothing to do with each other, I'd be astounded. But it's really hard to tell what's going on!

Now somebody tells me that her NGO got an email from the UN security people that the cabinet minister who had resigned for letting the blaze happen on his watch has been arrested. I can't find a newspaper to confirm that story, but it's early yet. UN Mission in Liberia chief yesterday assured the public that UNMIL's 15,000 troops will take care of anyone who tries to destablize the country.
