2011-04-06 15:32

Paris - Negotiations led by the United Nations and France aimed at securing the departure of Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo have failed, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Wednesday.

"The negotiations which were carried out for hours yesterday between the entourage of Laurent Gbagbo and Ivorian authorities have failed because of Gbagbo's intransigence," Juppe told parliament.

    Sarkozy and his regime of thieves and crooked businesses must be humiliated worldwide; French soldiers; nationals and those from French decent must be kicked out from Africa immediately; and France itself must be destroyed to be rebuild on ethical; honest; and democratic basis. France's looting; violence and exploitation policies must come to an end very soon. They are a shame to humanity and to statehood. A nail from Laurent Gbagbo is much worthy from those French mentioned altogether. What the hell those French are doing in Ivory Coast? Why they are attacking the forces of Ivory Coast? and supporting a fraud election results that cannot stand scrutiny? Get out you French robbers and thugs! Africa and the World are no longer the same and Africans know how to hurt you.

      Please Tariq, tell us what you really think. As is so often the case, there's none so blind as those who will not see.

      Ah, at last a thinking person in a sea of yes-men. Not all of us here, look at Africa through western glasses! The Apartheid regime may be gone, but their culture of looking down at Africa is alive and kicking! The western powers still see Africa as their playground! The French and the French UN-forces in his case, should be made to pay for their war crimes!

      You French just take your people and soldiers and leave Ivory Coast for good. You have no right whatsoever to stay in Ivory coast and support any side or use force in any independent state. You know well your motives; but let me speak to other readers. Africans; keep your independence and control your own economy this the main target. Regarding the disputed elections consider these facts: 1- Any African election results can be scrutinized by Africans plus balanced international judges. 2- The disputed election is not the reason behind the violence; but the real cause is the refusal of scrutiny by one part and the rejection of the other side to surrender powers before conducting essential scrutiny. 3- The mandate of the UN is only to separate attacks between the North and the South to avoid another civil war. 4- The UN and the French must not use force to attack any side; otherwise African states must go in and neutralize the UN and the French and take over their protection responsibilities. 5- There are numerous clear evidences that the escalation of crisis and killings of Africans are the result of conflict of interests between the camp of pro-West under Ouattara and his French wife and foreign connections against the pro-independence camp led by Gbagbo and his Ivorian wife and nationalist connections. 6- Under any circumstances Gbagbo got more than 45% and those who voted for him want to make sure that the election was not rigged.

    Just because he (one person) feels and thinks he has won the election, people still want to negotiate with him, despite the clear cut evidence of election results. There is actually nothing to negotiate and this is now going on for a few months, just remove the bastard!!

      http://www.modernghana.com/news/320026/50/ivory-coast-the-logic-of-the-absurd.html Explains the involvement of the son of Ouattara's white french wife in business and the relationship of Sarkozy in this marriage!!!!!!!!!! It says: The temporary ban proclaimed by Alassane Ouattara on the exportation of cocoa beans is especially going to suit speculators who made purchases ahead of time and are going to profit from the surge in prices. In particular, the Armajaro company of the trader Anthony Ward, which in July 2010 acquired 240,000 tons cocoa, totalling 20% of Ivorian production and 15% of the world's stocks. This company invested 1 billion dollars and will profit substantially from it just as a consequence of this decision by Alassane Ouattara, whose 35 year old stepson, Loïc Folloroux, is none other than Anthony Ward's director for Africa. Quite clear filth!!!!

    The French can't get anything right. Here's this Gbagbo prick on his knees in front of them still arguing and they are still trying to negotiate with him? WTF! As Patton once said "I"d rather have the Germans in front of me than the French behind me".

  • Rustique - 2011-04-06 18:07

    Why does the UN protect one president when he's holed up and not protect the other president when his turn to be holed up comes? Maybe bias methinks? In fact the French colonialists and UN actually attack the other president!
