Is the bottom nådd?
Ok, the worst could be over. Leaving Gbagbo in the bunker and moving on is maybe not such a bad idea. The key now will be to get rid of all armed gangs and remaining pro-Gbagbo forces and militia in the rest of Abidjan. Then it’s back to business!
I never liked the idea of letting Gbagbo go into some sort golden exile abroad. The man is like Gollum, even in exile he would never stop claiming to be the President, and keep plotting a return. A negotiated exile would be a bit the same mistake as the end of World War I, Gbagbo and his supporters would claim that he was never beaten, that it was just a French conspiracy and possibly even keep an anti-Ouattara insurgency going.
Now hopefully with time, people will get on with their lives and stop worrying about Gbagbo in his cave in the Misty Mountains… err I mean his bunker, and then when he eventually comes out he can be put on trial.
