Here Comes The 4th Front For America's Nobel Peace Prize Winner: UN Attack Helicopter Fires On Pro-Gbagbo Military Base In Ivory Coast

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Update: Nobel Peace Prize winner for 2011, Nicolas Sarkozy, has just authorized the use of force in Ivory Coast.

They don't make Nobel peace war prizes like they used to anymore. The 4th war front for the president of peace Barack Obama, who just started his reelection campaign, is almost here. Naturally, don't expect any actual declaration of war. From Reuters:

  • U.N. ATTACK HELICOPTER FIRES ON PRO-GBAGBO MILITARY BASE IN IVORY COAST'S ABIDJAN - TWO WITNESSES

More as we get a list of casualties, whom we expect will be more than just chocolate lovers worldwide. In the meantime, the black market for Blood Chocolate is percolating.

More from Reuters:

United Nations helicopters fired four missiles at a pro-Gbagbo military camp in Ivory Coast's main city of Abidjan on Monday, witnesses said.

"We saw two UNOCI (U.N. mission in Ivory Coast) MI-24 helicopters fire missiles on the Akouedo military camp. There was a massive explosion and we can still see the smoke," one of the witnesses said.

The camp is home to three battalions of the Ivorian army.

Calls to the U.N. forces commander in Ivory Coast went unanswered.

This helicopter does not fire Nobel peace prizes:

White MI-24 helicopters, with guns, and United Nations painted in big black letters on the side.  The 23mm cannons must be purely for "defensive" purposes?

The guy who won the election is Ougadou or something like that, he is a former UN diplomat and was responsible for selling some Ivorian utilities to French firms for a song back in the 90s.  Ivory Coast has some really decent infrastructure so I'm sure the French and US would love to get their hands on it.  Sorry no links, if I can find I will send along.  A french film maker has done a documentary on it, and France's influence over Uranium production in Niger.  Great railways and ports in Ivory Coast, almost to developed world status I think...

funnily enough... Libya and Ivory Coast are among the 5 countries who didn't sign up to AFRICOM... Sudan is another....

And what happened to the Sudan?  Civil war, split into two countries, still fighting, mayhem death and destruction.....
Another coincidence of life.
Right.

France will always do what France thinks is best for France, and the rest of the world can burn for all they care.

Take a deep breath, and read Candide.  If you take the utter insanity too much to heart, it will only destroy you.  More is on the way, and resilience is necessary.  Focus on that over which you have control.

Only if the reason is bankruptcy. We can't afford a missile defense shield that may or may not function. If we went to war with Russia, it only would have assured Poland glows in the dark for the next ten thousand years...

Any one who has done any reading knows "about going to war to distract the people"

Just because I can see that two cars are going to run into each other,  doesn't mean I am driving the cars....

I hope they'll attack Japan next. Only the military intervention will save the citizens from the stupidest government since the World War II who endanger its own citizens and threatening all lifeforms with radiation.

The decision to go ahead with cloth caps over the reactors was "political decision", say the politicians rather proudly.

nothing like the smell of napalm in the morning....the murdering blood thirsty obama regime has managed to create more wars than caligula bush....

my my my what would the world do without usa bombing the crap out of them? and anyone who thinks that france and the un are not working under the auspices of the usa is a fucktard....

yes folks, the nation which spends more on its military than the rest of the world combined is in a very precarious security situation and what better to do than send american troops to die for some ignorant god-forsaken cause....

Anytime you say to cut military spending, the Repubs go nuts. If we can't nuke the world 80 times over, our military is useless. We need cuts all around, not just for social programs.

I'll never understand why it's Ok to bomb and thus kill the poor stupid bastards that have been conscripted to man the tanks and apc's, ect, while kit glove treatment must be accorded the leaders. Ok, I know why, it's just that as one of the conscripts I don't agree! If you would just kill the leader I wouldn't need to man the tank and i wouldn't have to die!

I didn't know the U.N. had its own army/air force now.

Still no fuss in CONgress about the failure of the Kenyan Usurper-in-Chief to obtain a CONgressional declaration of war before attacking a sovereign nation with U.S. warplanes and missiles, an act of war by any standard.

Why hasn't anyone arrested Obama yet?

I mean, he confessed to treason already!  He is on record in the Senate as saying the president cannot send troops into battle without congressional approval.  He has done so.  Therefore, by his own words, on the record, he is guilty of treason.

How completely lawless can it get?  Can anyone spell TYRRANY ???
