Your opinion on this.
I think bush should help, since he wants to let the world think he's a hero. go bush, save mankind from destruction with your mighty powers of... the us army, whatever.

I'm not sure what Bush can do, given how badly his government has soiled relations with France and the UN. He certainly couldn't use the military in this situation; even if they weren't taking on more than they could handle in Iraq, taking on France wouldn't be smart.
Since when does he care what france says? Hell, since when does he care what anyone in the international community says?

It's not so much whether Bush cares what France says, its whether France will listen to what Bush says after the way they've been treated by Bush and his government.
Ivory Coast surely is a mess. I'm not entirely sure on how this all began, but I've heard that pro-government Ivorians say France is helping the rebels and then Ivorian Su-25s attacked French troops, killing 9. This lead to France destroying the country's tiny air force of 2 Su-25s and 3 Mil-24s. There's also been word of many murders of Western people, and public rapes of white women. I think the UN should make more of an effort to bring stability to the country, as should African countries who should be sending peacekeepers, not a former colonial power.

we have been over this before. don't post links to images/vidoes of things like that. your description is more than enough; we don't need to see it too. if you want to exchange links to images of dead people, please do it in private.
I would die without my life.

I wasn't sure if I had to remove that link. I'm glad you did. :)
