I'm sure you've heard all about the Ivory Coast situation on the news.

The former president Ggagbo and the "new" president Ouattara both co-claim the title of President of Ivory Coast, a dispute that the United States and United Nations have officially stated is settled - Ouattara is the new President. But that's not what the officials in the Ivory Coast say.


On December 2, 2010, after a series of delays, the Independent Electoral Commission of Côte d’Ivoire (CEI) declared Alassane Ouattara the winner of the second round of the country’s presidential elections without presenting the results to the Constitutional Council for confirmation and validation. The head of the Constitutional Council contradicted the CEI claim that Alassane Ouattara had won the election. Mr Gbagbo was sworn in at a midday ceremony by the President of the Constitutional Council (the highest constitutional authority in Ivory Coast whose duty is to ensure that the principles and rules of the constitution are upheld) on Saturday December 4, 2010


Question: Who is Alassane Ouattara, the contender for the Ivory Coast presidency, and where did he come from?

Answer:

Source


To make a long story short Alassane Ouattara works for the IMF which works for the United States.

Ouattara was born on January 1, 1942, in Dimbokro, Ivory Coast. He received a bachelor’s of science degree in 1965 from the Drexel Institute of Technology, which is now called Drexel University, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.. Ouattara then obtained both his master’s degree in economics in 1967 and a doctorate in economics in 1972 from the University of Pennsylvania.

He was an economist for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington, D.C. from 1968 to 1973, and afterwards he was the BCEAO’s (Central Bank of West African States) Chargé de Mission in Paris from 1973 to 1975. With the BCEAO, he was then Special Advisor to the Governor and Director of Research from February 1975 to December 1982 and Vice Governor from January 1983 to October 1984. From November 1984 to October 1988 he was Director of the African Department at the IMF, and in May 1987 he additionally became Counsellor to the Managing Director at the IMF. On October 28, 1988 he was appointed as Governor of the BCEAO (Central Bank of West African States), and he was sworn in on December 22, 1988.


So what is really going on?


A major crude oil-induced border dispute has been going on for over a year now between Ivory Coast and its eastern neighbor Ghana. The election is being used to distract the World from what is really happening in Ivory Coast – another dispute over oil rights.

In May of 2010 Global Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE:GNR) announced another big oil discovery offshore Cote d’Ivoire in West Africa. In May of 2003 Tullow Oil plc announced an oil discovery on the Acajou prospect in Ivory Coast, confirming the hydrocarbon potential of the area, southeast of the Espoir field.

In September of 2010 Tullow made another discovery off the coast of Ivory Coast and Ghana. Tullow said it had found what could be among the largest recent oil discoveries in Africa off the coast of Ivory Coast and Ghana, with the field holding a potential 550 million barrels.


So there is a lot of oil (MONEY - POWER) in the Ivory Coast area...



Last year, Ghana appealed to the United Nations to extend its maritime boundary by 200 nautical miles. Ivory Coast also has made a submission to the United Nations laying claim to portions of Ghana’s oil find that they say is in Ivory Coast waters. It is this conflict over oil that the United States controlled IMF installed one of their own to be president of Ivory Coast. 1.8 billion barrels of crude is at stake and the U.S. wants control of it all. What could be the outcome? Just look at what happened in Afghanistan when the Taliban gave the Trans-Afghan natural gas and oil pipeline contract to a non-U.S. company.

Not one reply? Is everyone too busy wondering why birds are dying?

Does anyone have an opinion on this or was the thread lost in the shuffle?

Between that and it is the largest grower of cocoa beans in the world.

Those 2 things are good enough to overthrow the relatively weak leadership.

Thoughts?

America has its greedy hands all over the place but it's better than having China there.

My thoughts? I found an article from June of 2010 that says Ivory Coast is going to begin (with the help of the Nestle corporation) to produce Genetically Modified Organism cocoa, nicknamed "Mercedes" .... and "the hopes of the global chocolate industry depend on it."


The “Mercedes” are the result of years of breeding cocoa trees, using non-GM methods, and blending them with Ivorian varieties to make them more resistant to local diseases, including the devastating black pod. “They can produce in about 18 months. The others take at least three years,” says Kouassi. When I ask him if he believes that the new trees will improve Ivorian yields, he smiles and says: “Oh, I think they will produce 3 tonnes [per hectare],” six times the ­current yield.


Maybe Gbagbo was against GMO foods, or the farmers were, and the new leader will impose the GMO cocoa on the farmers?

Regardless, having an IMF proponent in place when a country's main export is about to multiply by 6 is not a bad idea for the IMF and globalists.

A lot of people want the CIA disbanded, and the US military budget cut drastically, and US troops to come home from outposts in all the countries around the world, and US embassies to shut down - but that would compromise America's position as the world power.

In a world of evil, you have to play to win.

That's true.
I'd rather have America in position of power than China.We live in world we're the system is based on who plays the game the best but at least America plays it with some decency.China unfortunately doesn't and I guess it comes down who's the better of two evils.
