Text of the treaty, commentary, etc at c-r.org[edit]

Right now this links to the a page provided by c-r.org which includes comentaries and key texts involving the conflict. The user who originally and anonymously added this link is, I believe, associated with that site. The link is appropriate, and that site is a repuatable site, and I have put the link back. If you feel that the link is inappropriate, or that a different link to the text would be better, feel free to bring it up here. Thanks. Smmurphy(Talk) 16:18, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

WP:MILHIST Assessment[edit]

A very nice start. Needs an infobox, expansion where possible (and sections). Also, you might want to create "military history of Liberia" into a proper category, rather than a red-link. Just takes a few moments. LordAmeth 09:27, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Doe Torture & Execution[edit]

Samuel Doe made a surprise visit to the ECOMOG HQ in the Free Port of Monrovia, we will never know why, but it was ostensibly to seek exile. Doe and his men were disarmed by the ECOMOG troops, however when Prince Johnson was informed of Doe's whereabouts, he and his men stormed in, armed, and kidnapped Doe in a firefight witnessed and broadcast by the BBC's Elizabeth Blunt. I am unable to find any documentation on this on the web, the BBC not having archives that far back. However, I heard the whole account on the BBC's Short-wave West Africa service. I realize this is not considered reliable documentation, and I will continue to search for an acceptable source to document it. Alan 00:29, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Here is a reliable source: see "September" at http://www.c-r.org/our-work/accord/liberia/chronology.php#1990 Alan 00:32, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

"in fiction"[edit]

Hi, I removed the "in fiction" section since it adds nothing to the article and frankly is a bit disrespectful to those affected by this conflict. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.157.161.170 (talk) 06:43, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Impact[edit]

Overall this is a well written section, but there needs to be more information on the personal impacts of the war. You provide some information on child soldiers, rape, murder, etc. But I believe you need more examples of atrocities committed and what happened because of them. Including information on women would also help make this a stronger section. The impact of war on women is an important piece to add because it helps set up what would later happen during the Second Liberian Civil War.
