In an effort to combat the latest spate of murders and gang violence, the army will be deployed for three-months in some of the impoverished neighborhoods of Cape Town. The gang wars have claimed the lives of more than 1,500 this year so far.
OMG how dare they use the military to defend their citizens what is this Nazi Germany they need to look to the US and how we only send troops out to die for Israel...
Maybe Apartheid-era SADF could've handled it. Crime rates in 1970s Capetown were the envy of modern Paris or London. SADF now couldn't handle a food fight.
