Parlez vous loser?Remember that unilateral French intervention in Ivory Coast several months ago? They tried to put together a peace deal between the government and rebel groups. Not quite working out as well as the French might have hoped.
Crowds converged on the United States Embassy, demanding that Washington intervene. People chanted "U.S.A.! U.S.A.!" and waved American flags. Some held aloft a sign that read: "America welcome in Ivory Coast. France bye bye.""France bye bye." I think that says it all.
