Exploring the impact of migrants on democratic development both at home & abroad.
Oh boy!...I can't help giving kudos to Paul Kagame... This is amazing! In the sorry history of African leaders, this is the first African mofo to be taken seriously and as an equal by Western leaders! Consider this: Sarko advised his Foreign Minister Alain Juppé to go hang out somewhere in Asia (or wherever he wanted to kill time) during Kagame's visit in Paris! Unbelievable! There's bad blood between Juppé, who was, like now, Foreign Minister during the Rwandan genocide...
Sarkozy is a smart politician. I see this diplomatic reconciliation as part of a broader strategy by Sarkozy to end this outdated "gaullist" tribal war with the English speaking world. Just as with Libya, Sarkozy is seeking a leadership role for france and thinks that this realignment strategy with the US is the way to get there. Alain Juppé is just making sure the old Gaullistes are staying on board while Sarko is making the transition. (my theory)
