Has Gbagbo stepped down?
for some reason i can't access huffpo at the moment from work.
Not according to Aljazeera English.
gbagbo needs to count his gazzillion billions and go now. you lost.
what is in the water that these despots drink?
Greed and selfishness
Yes! And solid KaiKai!
the talks fell through.
gbagbo is still holed up in the bunker, he's not surrendering or conceding.
power is a dangerous thing.
As the saying goes "Absolute power corrupts absolutely!"
power sucks the soul, and humanity out of people.
Remember secondary school days? You would see/know a very quiet, and nice person who would complain of how wicked a senior or prefect was, but as soon as they become a senior, or he/she is made a Dorm or College Prefect........come and see wickedness and arrogance. It is always like that.
Only God is incorruptible...
I can't help thinking if my namesake were still alive and at the helm of affairs in Naija...hmmmm he would have sent troops to deal with this long ago. Not that I desire a return to military rule for Naija...mercifully that period has passed. Hope our own democrats no longer give our uniformed colleagues excuses to return!!!
Yep, even Angels are corruptible.
It takes a lot of character to maintain good and fair poise/nature once in power.
I think all the dictators drink from the same fountain and the devil peed at the source.
Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo arrested!
It should be noted that the French literally invaded the Presidential Palace and Captured Mr. Gbagbo, but to avert a political, diplomatic mayhem and world outcry, they handed him over the the New Forces of MR. Ouattara. Now the Ouattara forces are claiming that they captured Mr. Gbagbo! It's sad how these western powers can commit these acts of aggression against sovereign nations without regard.
one of my friends just wrote: the outtara folsk already had him pinned in the bunker and were goign to starve him out. i think the French wre able to talk/negotiate him out. Exile package in the French Riveira, anyone?
i haven't read the whole report but the french forces actually go in there, or did he surrender to the french forces?
They went in there! If look at the video footage before they sanitized it........ as they advanced to his residence, the French were leading with TANKS and heavy weapons and Artillery, they follow by a rag tag army from Ouattara forces. You think the Ouattara forces have the expertise and weaponry to force someone like Gbagbo out of a fortified bunker? These are all coverups to make Ouattara look legitimate when the entire war is over. The French don't want him to look like a stooge! As for exile in the French Rivera, they will either send him to the Hague or try, convict and execute him locally in Ivory Coast.
Here is a clip of Mr. Gbagbo in a Hotel room being handed over to the Ouatarra Forces. Notice the Caucasian (Possibly a French Military) looking man without a uniform in the right hand corner of the video handing Mr. Gbagbo a towel. Why would everyone in that room be dressed in military uniform, but that white man? Answer.......to hide his French identity and connection.
Why would this White man be in the same room with Gbagbo?
first of all, i hope this means that the bloodshed of innocent civilians will stop now.
Ouatarra is not new to dirty politics? Ouattara was the Prime Minister of Côte d'Ivoire from November 1990 to December 1993 under Houphouët-Boigny. Let's not be naive here.
um...i turned 14 years old in November of 1990, and wasn't interested in politics at all
but on a serious note, i haven't been interested in african politics because frankly it makes my stomach churn.
i don't know who all the despots are, my prayer for the past three weeks has been for the bloodshed of innocent civilains who are hiding out in their homes to stop.
i don't know if ouatarra is going to order his soldiers to kill and rape and maim the civilains.
i don't know that.
i just know that i wanted the bloodshed to stop.
i'm positive i'm being naive about the whole thing but frankly i haven't been following african politics enough know who is who.
The French think they can fool everybody all the time You see, the whites always have 'GOOD' justifications to do what they like in Africa.Iam sure they had 'GOOD' reasons for carving Africa among themselves years ago.The site of that Don Quixote (Sarkozy)is enough to make me want to throw up.One thing for sure---It is Gbagbo today, It will be Quattara tomorrow.IF he does not know that He is a fool.
