You'd think that after all the drama Laurent Gbagbo has caused over the past few months the U.N and AU would have a stronger stance against the president. What will it take before changes are made in this country?! Alassane Ouattara seems to have much of the public support and has declared himself the president but neither party will talk with eachother. Additional links included.

Looks like he plans to hold onto power no mater what. It's likely to get worse before it gets better.

Nice link! Yeah I'm definitely afraid its going to get A LOT worse before better. He seems just as crazy as Gadaffi! I hope the AU can do something constructive but I'm not sure what talks would even do. Its not encouraging to see that Anadarko is pulling out of the country either. The world is in SHAMBLES!

He'll be able to do whatever he wants so long as he keeps the oil flowin. The moment he threatens to blow up pipelines, he needs to start looking over his shoulder.
