I'm sure the world media and the UN will respond with outrage, when hell freezes over.

France thinks that maybe, just maybe, they can win a war.

I wonder how the communist UN will spin this. "France provides Ivory Coast with much needed lead and iron."

Kinda reminds me of the UN when they went on a murderous rampage in Katanga. Very sad.

Don't expect to hear any condemnation from the MSM or the european media. But don't be shocked if they find some way to place the blame on the US for not having troops there. Of course, had there been US troops, all of the blame would be place on them anyway.

The French are not just morally bankrupt or wimpy, their actions in the world as of late prove them to be nothing short of evil.

By my reckoning that would take me (dialup) from now until Christmas to do....so I'll just follow the thread; I assume this will, probably rightfully so, end up being a Frog-bashing thread.....that's a good thing.

Pretty disturbing... is it possible to confirm these are French soldiers? The video was worthless during the actual shooting.

For someone who has already seen it, what does it show in general terms? How good is the video and how outrageous is the crime?

I still remember a story about the french in Africa holding up a bank which they were supposed to be guarding.

I'm always suspicious of the videos claiming civilians were shot for NO reason. The video starts off with a pretty calm gathering of protestors, then there's an edit, then the shooting begins. Who shot first, the French or someone in the crowd? There's no way to tell.

Without context, the video is useless except for ogrish.com fans.

Does anyone here know what's really going on there? I heard a brief mention on an Australian news report that the french were taking sides with muslim forces against the indigenous population. Anyone?

A poor video. Snatches of sound and blurred, jerky video. Didn't show or had unintelligible sound. What went wrong?

Note to self....

Cancel my tickets to the neighborhood protest in Africa. If the locals don't machete your limbs off, the French will blow your head off. On the brightside, at least the video ended on a high note. The burning UN vehicle was a nice touch.

They are fairly easy to publish. The tracker is the biggie. I don't know what kind of resources go into a tracker, but I can imagine them getting pretty robust for the larger groups. As far as I know all you need to get a tracker started is the software, and it's free.

Been nice if they would have compressed it to .AVI before publishing it.

Well, I didn't spot any guns or other weapons in the rather long, unedited sequences of those who'd been shot.
