The thing that i find odd is that we are trying to oust a government who we know for a fact had a system that was in a dictatorship of a facist nature, and yet we had to ask the U.N. for help, and after much world filabustering they denounced us and our efforts.
To put down this goverment(in Abidjan, Ivory Coast) the U.N. pre-emptively sent in "4,000 French peacekeepers (that) would remain, alongside a more than 6,000-man U.N. peace force". If this is not a double standard i dont know what is!
Alot of people believe that we went into Iraq for oil, well where is the New York Times headlining an article that screams "France attacks Ivory Coast for Hot Cocoa." (see article http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6404613)
