REFLECTION - Would it be the Simón Bolívar of Africa?

Looking at the images displayed here and there that showed a Laurent Gbagbo "Helpless" infantilized by those who came to him out of his residence, it could only be moved. Any human degradation is pathetic. It is never good in defeat. These images are startling truth behind the scenes of the Ivorian crisis.

The "language of the eyes" between Laurent Gbagbo and his wife Simone is what keeps the outset. Simone Gbagbo seems to insist that the husband remains strong, rigid in their positions despite their captivity. In contrast, the husband seems to want his wife to have indirectly led to this point of no return.

And around them, assistance, hands on hips, is hard to believe that they are "those two" Ivorians who ran for over a decade ... Gbagbo resembles the monarch of Gabriel García Márquez in Autumn of the Patriarch. If, in this majestic novel, invented by the tyrant Márquez lived in a palace crappy, deserted by courtiers and were no longer as chickens and cows, it is clear that the bunker where the president was hiding was also captured been reduced to a kingdom whose courtiers gradually took to their heels - some even shamelessly reach the Hotel du Golf.

If Gbagbo had agreed to leave office a few months ago, taking advantage of attractive offers that he was doing - including immunity, a salary of 2 million euros per year, which is no longer the case today ' Today - perhaps he would have had a more glorious destiny, like that of another politician found in The General in His Labyrinth.

In this book, Marquez discusses the final years of Simón Bolívar, adored by the people of Latin American and nicknamed the Liberator because he had contributed to the emancipation of Latin American countries against Spanish rule. In the autumn of his life he will be expelled from power, will experience a slow death with his small circle of believers.

Colombia will not forget this character. Not more than Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia or Peru ... He had traced the path. He had wanted to die with dignity, as in The Death of Alfred de Vigny Wolf. He had done his duty, that of a liberator. The rest was to be pursued by future generations.

We know what happened in Latin America: a proliferation of dictatorships. Tearing. Divisions have won ... Gbagbo, who is a historian, he wanted to become the African Bolivar? If yes, then it was discovered that vocation once caught between two fires - if you can afford this option. Better yet, he had found the vocation that the purpose of sustaining a power that belonged to his clan.

Those around him were not revolutionaries, they "ate". Those who surround Ouattara today are not revolutionaries, make no mistake, they will soon "eat". Côte d'Ivoire is injured. Just look at the grave readout Ouattara. We know that what he has achieved is a Pyrrhic victory. Thus goes the world, and Ouattara with ...
