We all know that the United Nations backed the intervention in Libya so that Colonel Gaddafi could not massacre its own people. At the same time the UN is backing a president in Ivory Coast whose supporters seems to have massacred civilians.
When the West hears about massacres in Libya it intervenes. When it happens in Ivory Coast what does the West do?
It won’t be me the one who asks for foreign intervention in Ivory Coast. I just want to point out that I find a bit strange that you intervene in a country with oil – Libya – to stop a massacre – and you do not intervene in Ivory Coast.
I feel very ashamed that my country intervenes in Libya because of oil and says it is because it want to stop a massacre. It is a lie and, moreever, it is a danger for my country. How can you help rebles who may be, some of them, from Al-Qaeda? My country is just creating a future chaos in Libya. Wait and see. And it is not true the reason is to stop a massacre. If that was the case, then, my country should also intervene in Ivory Coast, in Yemen, in Syria.
OIL, OIL AND OIL. NATO, GO HOME!
