I'm sure you'll all have seen the Ivory Coast on the News lately. The Ivory Coast is split into two - the mostly Muslim North and the Christian South. After a bloody and long civil war the North has been controlled by Islamic Rebels since 2007. Recently an election took place and the results were unclear - the current President Gbagbo, a Christian, won in the South, but his rival Alassane Ouattara, a Muslim, won in the North. But the UN who were monitoring the election have reported cases of vote rigging in the South in favour of Gbabgo, and based on that, with no actual proof at all, have came to the assumption that Ouattara 'probably' won. Based on this guess, the world has now chosen to recognise Ouattara as the President and are now threatening to invade the Ivory Coast to remove him. But all this stinks. No one knows the results of the election - because over half of the country (the north) is under the control of Islamic Rebels - and there has been widespread reports of vote rigging in the North. There are more Christians than Muslims in the Ivory Coast, and the sectarian nature of Ivorian Politics means that most Christians probably voted for Gbagbo. The North has a considerable Christian Minority - bigger than the Muslim minority in the South. Yet the 'results' from the North have Gbagbo around 1% of the vote - which is a FARCE. No one seems to care about investigating the vote rigging against Gbagbo, but instead is concerned on the few instances of rigging in the south in favour of Gbagbo, where the opposition still did quite well. Surely if he was going to Rig the election, he'd have done it properly, not producing the marginal results which came out. Secondly, why is no one investigating the widespread reports of rigging in the North? We just take the word of the armed rebels that they were free and fare? But why would the World be anti-Gbabgo? He is Pro-African. The French have their claws all over the Ivory Coast, and before the civil war they controlled most of the wealth in the country. Gbabgo was very keen on Ivorians controlling the countries wealth, rather than foreigners - which is why the West is against him. They want to use and abuse the Ivory Coast and all of its resources. All in All, no one knows who won the election, but Gbabgo probably won. Around 25% of the Population in the north who voted shouldn't even legally be able to vote, they're illegal immigrants from Burkina Faso - like Ouattara himself. It's clear that the West wants to illegally and undemocratically install Ouattara as President to make sure that American and European companies are allowed to make profits in the Ivory Coast. What happened to us exporting Democracy? What message are we giving to the world about ourselves? We may well cause a second civil war now. But the Media here in the UK doesn't report this - it just glosses it all over as Ouattara being the winner of the election and us sending in support for democracy - when infact it is the total opposite.
