I find the situation in Ivory Coast disturbing. Western governments and media were quick to accuse Gbagbo of stealing the elections and people mostly
see him as a Mugabe-esque dictator.
The more this story goes on, the more I believe Ouattara is just the west manchurian candidate.
There was very little debate or information regarding the elections results and decisions made. I have many questions:
Why is the population and the army still very loyal to Gbagbo?
Ouattara calls for a general strike were a fiasco, he seems very isolated in his own country.
Why 'flawed' elections in Africa are suddenly a big issue in the West?
Is it because the country is the number one producer of cocoa, the cheap luxury taken from africa? O the strategic importance of Ivory Coast in
Why threaten war?
Nothing has been done in Sudan, Kenya and many countries with much more terrible political situation and loss of life. Now the West want to send their
'african puppet's armies' to take care the uncooperative Gbabgo?
I don't know much of this Gbagbo, I don't trust him more than anybody else but something tells me he isn't the monster the media wants us to
believe. And honestly I don't believe the reports of killings committed by Gbagbo are true.
The West doesn't care about the lives and will of africans, I am sure if Gbabgo wanted to bend over to the will of the US and Europe, we wouldn't
have this situation.
I am all for Ivory Coast to protect its sovereignty, better a country loving dictator than a sell off foreign puppet in my opinion.
Anyways I predict that:
Gbagbo won't change his position and remain in power
There will be false flags attacks on civilians or UN troops
The 'international community' outrage will allow african nations to wage war on Ivory coast
The 'international community' will lie and not take responsibility for this and mark it as a regional decision by africans for africans.
A bloody war will unfold and the media will portray it as a civil war. I think the population will stand with Gbagbo.
Gbagbo will lose because the West will certainly join in if it doesn't go their way.
It will send a clear message to all 'challenging candidates' either with your masters or you are taken out.
