You must have overlooked the bit where Hague said that he was not talking about deploying British troops, but as it only said that three times in that really long article (eleven sentences!) you can be forgiven for that minor oversight.

Also, before Billy "straight" Hague starts rattling sabres, Wiki indicates they may well have more firepower than us, per mile of coast;

Côte d'Ivoire has a brown-water navy whose mission is coastal surveillance and security for the nation's 340-mile coastline.

* 1 Patra patrol craft - 147 tons full load - commissioned 1978
* 2 CTM LCM - 150t - commissioned 1968

Oh bollocks to that. I'm sure Monty can get hold of some seaworthy vessel. I'm in. It would be just like Umboto Gorge. Now that was a battle and a half. It would have been worse if they had real weapons instead of sharpened fruit.

Will there be child soldiers? Please tell there'll be child soldiers.

It's like shooting a pillow- shit goes everywhere.

Oh yes. And some candidates for African Infantryman of the Year. It'll be like shooting pikeys at a wedding.

Is there any oil over there?

If no, then there's not a cat chance in hell we'll be going.

If yes, then I'm surprised the forces haven't already been deployed.

Right, I can secure a skiff. If any of you can acquire a couple of GPMG's and security clearance from the UN I reckon we could be in and out 'without a shot being fired' by next Thursday, and old 'wagbo' will be history.

Who's in?
Dude, I've had my mask on since Monday, and I've zeroed my GPMG low to catch the kids.

Sorry mate. wrong tricolore. the potato munchers were the ones that fought us to a stand still, then took a big 'loan' of money from us. These are black, french speaking potato munchers, :D

I thought skiffing was outlawed by the Geneva Convention? If we are going to ignore that, i'm not washing my arse. I'll skiff and hand out Mexican Bum Wanks as perfected by 7 RHA, the filthy swine.
 
Can I come along? It'll make a change to fcuk a blackie without paying for it. It's also been a while since I slapped a spud muncher.

You're allowed whatever you like, these lot will be a pushover. VC's allround, all we have to do is get a bit cutoff and spend two days defending a mission station.
