In South Africa the blacks were referred to by many people as 'boys' and 'girls' Whilst that was pejorative and offensive, it implied that they had never grown up.

As soon as something goes wrong after they've left home, they go crying back to Mummy and Daddy. When it's your children, your own flesh and blood, you can't ignore them. When it's an ex-colony, I think you can, and you should. Of course what happens next in Chad (Tchad?) it will depend on whether it is strategically important to the west, if not, it will be left to stew in its own juice as is happening in Zimbabwe.

Truly hypocrisy is the Vaseline of political intercourse (Pieter Dirk-Uys).
