Never fear, I'm sure the UN will fix it

I actually think the comparisons to Rwanda are weak, these are two countries with very different histories. But the situation in Cote D'Ivoire is troubling. The French troops will need to get out. Having your former colonial masters around rarely helps to diffuse a situation. Can't think why (did we learn nothing from the Belgians in Rwanda? Why do I bother asking?). This does mean, however, that other nations are going to have to step up.
