Randy Short, a political commentator, believes the current army mutiny in Ivory Coast is a “blowback” of the United States and France’s policy of toppling Laurent Gbagbo’s “sovereign” government, adding that President Alassane Ouattara had no right to seize power.

“This is just like anywhere else that the French or the Americans put in a dictator of their liking against the betterment of the people,” Short told Press TV in an interview on Monday.
