  4. @ElProximo: well we all live in a global village these days. What impacts Ivory Coast impacts the rest of the world. The refugee situation that will arise as a result of turmoil in Ivory Coast will affect every nation. From the countries in west Africa to France and the United States. So, the west has to intervene when stupid greedy and African leaders refuse to give up power after losing an election. Gbagbo is another despot. He is another Boigny.
