Klaus, to be honest....I don't know much about the situation. I just bumped into this editorial. Thought it was interesting that according to this person, France has intervened on the continent of Africa at least 37 times without UN support.

Dreadsox: i'm not good in these old things, but i'm also unsure how the legal situation was in this moment, were the french colonies part of france and therefore it was self defense? I'm unsure about the legal aspect either, but the fact that noone of us has heared about that might lead into the direction that someone (the author of the editorial) might leave out some facts to make it seem that invading other countries (and hereby violating international laws - the UN Charta) is pretty normal for democracies and you shouldn't be affraid that the USA does this the first time with the current Bush administration..
