Two war criminals; but only one faces trial

As Gbagbo faces trial at the Hague, Ouattara runs Cote d'Ivoire.

Our housekeeper was outraged. Like many Ghanaians, she recognized that massacres were committed by both sides during the recent Ivoiran Civil War, but it is only Gbagbo going to the ICC. I told her it was a historical truth that the winners get to try the losers.

A few days ago we were having trouble with our truck and dropped in to a service station. Where in North America you would expect to find a Pirelli calendar, at this station they had the poster below depicting some of the crimes in question.

(Warning--graphic and disturbing imagery below).

The French wife was a big political plus for Ouattara. Selling out Delivering the country to the French was another.
