Silent Coup: UN Takes Over Africa?

UN Security Council urges Côte d'Ivoire to form all-inclusive government ... United Nations Security Council on Wednesday urged President of Côte d'Ivoire Alassane Ouattara to form an all-inclusive, broad-based Government to restore peace to the nation. Ambassador Néstor Osorio of Colombia, which holds the Council's rotating monthly presidency, called on all Ivoirians to abstain from any reprisals, revenge or provocation and to exercise maximum restraint. Following the surrender of former President Laurent Gbagbo, Ambassador Osorio urged the North African nation to unite in order to "promote national reconciliation and restore sustainable peace through dialogue and consultation." – News Wires
Dominant Social Theme: The removal of Laurent Gbagbo from the tiny Ivory Coast is a big victory for freedom everywhere.
Free-Market Analysis: In the modern age, with the power elite pressing hard for world government, it is sometimes difficult to note turning points, but the more we see of the tiny Ivory Coast affair the more we tend to believe this is another watershed moment. It is truly a big deal. Though we have covered this unfolding story with regular articles now, we believe it deserves additional coverage.
What is the underlying message? That the UN is evidently and obviously not just in charge of elections but of results as well. This presumably was necessary as Africa is about to be convulsed by no less than 30 top-level elections and the Western powers-that-be want to make sure that appropriate controls are in place so no unpleasant surprises (unexpected and anti-Western results) take place. No longer will the top powers refuse to act when one believes another is engaged in "abuses." Instead interference is the order of the day. We see in the results in the emergent agony of the Ivory Coast.
