    Paging lucky53s

    Have you been a bad boy?

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080806/...auritania_coup

    I'm not as up on Africa as I should be, but come on, you knew this was going to happen. Give us the straight dope, the dirty details. Did they run it by the Military Attache at the embassy? Did they get a wink and a nod or full-on support from you all? The EU and African Union have already condemned it, but the U.S. hasn't, are we waiting to make sure it'll stick?

    Don't worry, we won't tell , but give the foosters just a little gossip.

    I wondered why he needed a foo image so badly. I bet it was for the new flag.

    I need a Foo logo right now=

    Yep, it's all fun over here.

    Actually, the President and Prime Minister are still being detained but are safe. General Aziz is in charge. There hasn't been any violence yet but they say there is about a 40% chance. Most of the coups here aren't dangerous. I've been sitting in meetings at the Embassy most of the day. They said that the city was pretty civil all day. There were a few protests and people holding up pictures of the President. Cops teargassed a crowd of teenagers and early 20s to keep them from getting out of hand. America has issued a Letter of Condemnation against General Aziz and won't deal with them until they restore some type of government in agreement with their constitution. So far it's been pretty tame, I hope it stays that way but there are no guarantees. More updates may come tomorrow if anything changes.

    hope it stays tame. Take care and watch carefully what's going on. Could be a cool story to tell the kids someday (if you have any).

    I hope to eventually. I also hope to get out of here in 31 days fully intact.

    Thanks everyone for the thought and well wishes. Overall this isn't a bad country. It was Muslim, not a terrorist base, Democratic and recognized Israel as a civilized country. It's worth saving so I don't want to see them get tangled in a Civil War. So far everything has been fine, just a verbal struggle for power and some arrests. If I stop showing up on here you'll know why. And if that's the case I'm willing my bike to Crank because he used to always say he needed another. And my fishing pole to jsharr because he definitely needs to find us a new bass. My secret quail pie recipe to Shadiyah because she's always cooking things that sound great. And my man thong to Chipcom, because I'm pretty sure he likes things like that.....

    We don't want to see Chip in a man thong. Please, come home safe.

    That's just in case I die. That way I don't have to see him. And my gift to the rest of you are the pictures he will post in the Men of Foo thread. (And sometimes the Women of Foo thread)

    It would probably be more effective if you suggested that East Hill will be demanding photos... .

    At any rate, we want you to keep yourself safe, all right?
