Default Mystery attacks on Chad's army

Chad-war zone

I've tried calling Sarah a few times, and the phone won't connect. She is south of D'jamena, which according to the story, the roads are blocked.

I'm trying not to get concerned... I'll feel a lot better when I hear her voice....

Where is that damn 'Can you hear me now" guy when you need him....???

Why don't you talk some sense into her, and get her back here..

Stupid peace corps

If she really wants to live in a place like that, tell her she can throw a tent in my back yard, I'll give her water and bread, and she can do my laundry.. Hell, I'll even talk in oddball languages so she feels better

I'll kick myself in the junk for that one.

Oh you mean she didn't pack any "heat" before she went to the middle of the civil war zone? BTW I consider almost all of Africa one huge battlefield since they never stop bickering with each other :miff:

Oh well at least now you know what to get for X-Mas - 45Caliber S&W and a Satellite Phone

My Sister in law just got back from a 2.5 year peace core assignment in Mali, out a bit more to the west of Africa.

Peace Corps = Scam

I think they are mainly focused on getting PCVs into the field to justify their existence.

Her assignment was nothing but trouble and wasted time. Although at least there weren't issues like that. I feel for you, those phone calls when she was able to get into the city were always choppy.

I don't see myself going to Lear's Dearborn campus that much. I'll be too tempted to make random ID checks and ****.


A Military enlistment would be a shorter tour abroad, she'd have plenty of weapons, live in a secured area with other Americans, still get to see the asscrack of the world, and would make a lot more money!

You have my best wishes on her safety and well being.
I'm with Jesus on thoughts of Peace Corps being a scam, and Pavement pounder on his implication of being safer with the U.S. military.

the article was pretty brief, it didnt say who the attackers were. I don't know the situation in Chad well at all. I know about the sudan, somolia, egypt, lybia, south africa, and ethiopia but i dont really know much about chad at all. Is it war lords that are attacking the chad national army ? Revolutionaries? Yuck that entire continent is a hell hole stuck in the middle ages or worse. Best of luck for your daughter.

Haggar what is a PCV ? Is that a peace corp veteran ?

All I know is that when I talked to her a week ago, she said that According to the BBC, Chad has the most corrupt government in the world.

Which certainly explains why some may want to overthrow it.
