It was neo-colonialism in action. Under the cover of humanitarianism, the UN and France invaded the former French colonial possession and arrested Laurent Gbagbo, the country’s elected – although disputed – leader.
The globalists then installed Alassane Ouattara, a western-trained economist (at Drexel Institute of Technology in Pennsylvania) and IMF stooge. He was appointed director of the African Department at the IMF and in May of 1987 became Counsellor to the Managing Director at the globalist loan sharking operation.
In 2000, Ouattara was disqualified by the country’s Supreme Court from an election run due to his Burkina Faso nationality. The Ivory Coast constitution did not allow non-citizens to run for presidency. Ouattara’s supporters took the streets and staged violent protests in retaliation.
Laurent Gbagbo was elected. In 2002, while Gbagbo was out of the country, a military coup was attempted. It was blamed on the former president Robert Guéï. Others blamed Ouattara, however, and the IMF minion sought refuge in the French embassy and his house was burned down.

Elections were scheduled to take place in 2005 but were pushed back five years. After Gbagbo claimed to have won the election in 2010, the UN and various foreign governments insisted he step down and allow the UN employee to assume power. The UN and the French sent troops to help Ouattara get rid of his opponent.
An orchestrated campaign of terror followed. Islamic forces loyal to Ouattara slaughtered a thousand fleeing Christian civilians in Duékoué, hacking them to death with machetes. They also burned villages as they headed for the capital. In addition to wanton murder, Ouattara’s soldiers raped women and girls, according to Human Rights Watch.
Corinne Dufka, senior researcher in the Africa Division of Human Rights Watch, accused Gbagbo supporters of engaging in murder as well. The corporate media has focused primarily on violence committed by Gbagbo’s military forces while ignoring the violent behavior of Ouattara troops.
The UN forces led by the French eventually dragged Gbagbo and his family out of his home, as shown in the above video. He was arrested and now faces an international – that is to say globalist – tribunal for the crime of not obediently following orders and stepping aside and allowing Ouattara to do the bidding of the United Nations, the IMF, and the banksters. He was initially offered exile, but will now likely be hauled before the UN’s International Court and tried for crimes against humanity. The disgraced African leader will likely suffer a similar fate of other enemies of the globalists, including Slobodan Milošević and Saddam Hussein.
“After more than four months of post-electoral crisis, marked by so many human lives lost, we are finally at the dawn of a new era of hope,” Ouattara said after assuming power.
“This transition sends a strong signal to dictators and tyrants throughout the region and around the world,” said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after learning of Gbagbo’s arrest. “They may not disregard the voice of their own people in free and fair elections, and there will be consequences for those who cling to power,” she added while not bothering to mention the fact that the country’s supreme court ruled that Gbagbo was the leader of the country.
Obama wasted little time. He called Alassane Ouattara and congratulated him for violently taking over the country and discussed the importance of re-establishing globalist trade to help restart Ivory Coast’s economy, according to VOANews, the CIA propaganda front. In other words, the globalists will make sure the Ivory Coast remains a third world hell hole perpetually indebted to the IMF and the banksters.
The object lesson for the Ivory Coast is: “Respect the UN and its mandate. And listen to your wiser, Western elders,” according to The Daily Bell.
It also spells out that when it comes to Africa — as Libya and the Ivory Coast reveal — the globalists will not hesitate to use military force to impose their political demands.
