    Ya aiz don dey open now? Moreover, the Ivorians believe his family/he is from Burkina Faso! The man has dirty hands. Its just a matter of time.

    Have you been watching the sanitized version of the original clip that I posted on post #16 of this thread on USA TV stations and even Aljazeera? They conveniently omitted the presence of the Caucasian man in the video! This a lame try to coverup the deep involvement of French forces in capturing Mr. Gbagbo. Here is another sanitized clip from the BBC. They show the Ouatarra forces shooting at a door, but they never show us the actual assault on Gbagbo's location in the Bunker by the French. Do they actually think we're naive to believe that the entrance leading to a Bunker is fortified with wooden doors, instead of reinforced steel? :( They then cut to putting a Flack jacket and helmet (Bullet Proof Jacket) on Gbagbo by some New Forces soldiers of Ouatarra.

    Particularly the French.You see,They have no regard for Africa at all going way back .They tested their ATOMIC bomp in January 1960 in Africa Sahara Desert again In December 1960. Despite the fact we just got our Independent only 3 months before,our great Nigeria Leaders of those Good Old days Expelled the French Ambassador and closed their embassy.

    Yep, I read about their nuclear weapons testing in Niger Republic's desert area. I know they pushed Camproare to go against Nigeria's peace-keeping efforts with ecomog in Sierra Leone and Liberia back in the 1990s. I bet they also instigated Cameroun to grab bakkasi...The list is endless.

    How time flies!! All these interventions by the west only end up making matters worse in the long run.
