France takes unilateral action!

Washington Post:

France rolled out overwhelming military force Sunday to put down an explosion of anti-French violence in its former West African colony, deploying troops, armored vehicles, and helicopter gunships against machete-waving mobs that hunted house-to-house for foreigners.

The U.N. Security Council, in emergency session late Saturday, demanded an immediate halt to all military action in Ivory Coast, and France blamed Ivory Coast's leader directly.

Wow where do you start with this one? I did not think that France had the balls to actually do anything like this. Why is this not in the main stream media? It seems that they are allowed to fight to protect their own interests, but that we can not.
