A West African peacekeeping force is due in Liberia this week.

MONROVIA, Liberia (CNN) -- Peacekeepers from Nigeria are due to arrive in Liberia within days to try to stop fighting between forces loyal to President Charles Taylor and rebel militias.

This is good. Although I have a theory. . . the sudden media attention Liberia has gotten in the last few weeks may have emboldened the rebels to take Monrovia. It's just a theory. . . . .and I'm probably wrong.
