Calling someone a 'boogeyman` would suggest they aren`t actually real and/or don`t pose a threat to anyone. I believe there would be plenty of people in africa (that`s where this is all going on, yes?)who would disagree with that sentiment.
Anyways, while someone like kone`s certainly a danger to those around him, the question in my mind is where does our involvement in other countries stop? As long as there are people there will be bad people, and the idea that we can track down and deal with every single criminal in the world is absurd.
That`s my personal dilemma with the issue; from a moral, humane standpoint just turning out backs on a person like that would be an awful and callous thing to do. From a practical standpoint though he proses no real threat to us, and the area in question has been rife with violence for a long, long time, so chances are even if kone was removed it wouldn`t be long before some other violent group took over.

I don't understand why America has to be the world`s police. We try to fix problems, everyone hates us, and we`re not getting much out of it. (Not saying we don`t do anything wrong)Our country is kind of going down the toilet, and all we can think of is other countries. I can understand invading oil rich ones, but can`t another country take over being world police for us?
