    Côte D'Ivoire -- what's going on now?

    I haven't caught any follow-up reports on what's happening in the Ivory Coast since the French peacekeeping troops were driven out last year. What's happened since?

    Not that I want to pick on France, but . . .

    French troops convicted of bank robbery in Côte d'Ivoire

    There have also been allegations against a number of UN units involving assaults on women and children (particular young girls) in various UN missions in Africa. Greater supervision of the UN troops is necessary. :mad:

    Let's be reasonable: if you're not allowed to steal from the local war victims, or rape a few young local girls, what will then still be the motivation to become a soldier ? :devil: This has always been the case, throughout history !

    Some soldiers do, not all.

    I don't accept that 'something that has always been done in the past' should continue. :mad:

    The strong are 'obligated' to protect the weak! :grumpy:
