Nouakchott

found with a clear majority, that the historical ties of these countries to Spanish Sahara did ''not'' grant them the right to the territory. Furthermore, the Court declared that the concept of ''terra nullius'' (un-owned land) did not apply to the territory. The Court declared that the Sahrawi population, as the true owners of the land, held a right of self-determination. In other words, any proposed solution to the situation (independence, integration etc.), had to receive the explicit acceptance of the population to gain any legal standing. Neither Morocco nor Mauritania accepted this, and on October 31, 1975, Morocco sent its army (Military of Morocco) into Western Sahara to attack Polisario positions. The public diplomacy between Spain and Morocco continued, however, with Morocco demanding bilateral negotiations over the fate of the territory. Mauritania Claims on Western Sahara had proliferated since the 1960s, fuelled by Mauritanian President Moktar Ould Daddah. Before Mauritania signed the Madrid Accords and after the withdrawal of the last Spanish forces, in late 1975, the Mauritanian Army (Military of Mauritania) invaded the southern part of Western Sahara, while the Moroccan Army (Royal Moroccan Armed Forces) did the same in the north. In April 1976, Mauritania and Morocco partitioned the country into three parts, Mauritania getting the southern one, which was named Tiris al-Gharbiyya. Mauritania waged four years of war against Polisario guerrillas, conducting raids on Nouakchott, attacks on the Zouerate mine train and a coup d'état that deposed Ould Daddah. Mauritania finally withdrew in the summer of 1979, after signing the Argel Accord with the Polisario Front, recognizing the right of self-determination for the Sahrawi people, and renouncing any claims on Western Sahara. The Moroccan Army immediately occupied the former Mauritanian territory. Mauritania recognized the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic on February 27, 1984. * WikiPedia:Nouakchott Commons:Category:Nouakchott

If somebody finds a source, then they should directly put the verifiable information into an appropriate high level article. Also, if we don't delete, but do a merge, I would do a disambig instead of a redirect. It's not clear to me that Broadmoor, California is actually "Broadmoor village". This makes me think Broadmoor, California is the "Township of Broadmoor", which is unit of government immediately below the county (separate from any city). However a place called "Broadmoor village" might be inside of Daly City, California, which is presumably close, but maybe not the same thing as the Township. Plus the Broadmoor, California doesn't say "Village" or "Township", but just "census designated" place, which could mean it's unicorporated. I don't know. So, I say just delete this article, and people can put proper info from proper sources in proper places when they have the time to do things properly. --Rob (User:Thivierr) 19:15, 4 January 2006 (UTC) *'''merge''' as above.--Marvin147 (User:Marvin147) 03:34, 5 January 2006 (UTC) '''Michael P.
