Damn, this leading from behind gets frustrating.
Still, it's all in the best interests of Gandhi, peace, love and dope, you know, the Barack/Hillary thing.

The name of this country is "Côte d'Ivoire", not "Ivory Coast"

Mr. Gloobe (or is that Monsieur Gloobe--sorry, my ethno-deficient keyboard doesn't easily supply the funny squiggles):
I offer you a Coke!
Englishmen are entitled to use their own language as they please and place names on countries as they please. It is indeed the "Ivory Coast" in English just as it used to be "Bombay" and now is "'Or'nee'%h\oray" (sorry, doing my best to imitate the squiggles).
In my lifetime "Beping" became "Peking" became Beijing" became "Krugman's Maoist Paradise."
I prefer the English method of naming the place simply and without squiggles and then leaving the name the same.

Thank you very much for sharing with us your poorly written and uneducated point of view. Even in English the name of this country is Côte d'Ivoire, please see below :
I'm sorry I couldn't find a reference to Côte d'Ivoire on the McDonald's website, but hopefully you will find these official websites "American " enough.

Dear Gloube. I may be many things but poorly-written and uneducated I is not.
I will accept racist, bigoted, small-minded, reactionary, reactionery, nativist, Islamophobic, Islamaphobic and an extreme Right-Wing hate Machine.
There, I've done your work for you. Just add some links.

The more the US Regime cowers before terrorists and tyrants and retreats globally the more the enemies of liberty and prosperity strike.
The cowardice and expediency of the US Regime are a tonic to Islamic terrorists .

President Biden is probably on his way over there now to personally disarm the rascal hijackers.

No Mr. dem816. Reuters is reporting that "While President Obama is busy today with the pomp and circumstances of his historic Second Inauguration and Citizens of the World await direction for Hope and Change that hopefully will be contained in his speech accepting the mantle of 'Leader of the Free World,' Vice President Joseph Biden the First is winging his way towards the Ivory Coast on Air Force Two.
A spokesperson close to another spokesperson rumored to be close to an advisor to the Vice President quoted the great man as saying 'Hillary came, she saw, she conquered. Now I'm gonna put dem all back in chains.' The spokesperson assumed he was referring to terrorists and not a retired Republican couple vacationing in Abidjan."

My goodness! Somebody might actually think there is a war going on by the outlaws. But if we just ignore it, it will probably go away. :-(

Piracy is not that unusual, even in West Africa, though the location is not that common. Piracy offshore Somalia actually declined a bit last year, though many shipping companies choose not to report attacks due to insurance concerns.

Are we sure it isn't the oil traders from GS whom have hijacked the tanker so as to give a little boost to their oil longs?
