No Blood for Cocoa. In the history of Cote d'Ivoire (known as the Ivory Coast to us English speakers), the history of France has often overlapped. It is happening again. France is actively engaged in a war in the Ivory Coast right now. Strangely, they have not sought the permission of the United Nations to do this. As France is still critical of the USA's war in Iraq for not having UN approval, this can only be seen as being hypocritical. I guess the French version of international law does not apply to France. As the Ivory Coast is the world's largest producer of cocoa, I want to hear the anti-war protesters take up a new chant. No blood for cocoa!
