NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.
ICHEOKU says the United States of America mandate to its military engaged overseas particularly Afghanistan is stop cuddling the bad guys, just whack them. ICHEOKU says certainly a c-change in the rules of engagement and it will certainly make it easier for our warriors who will risk less of their lives and limbs in battle fields. President Donald John Trump is definitely leading as said and providing the leadership our military needs as their Commander in Chief. Way to go.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER
"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.

ICHEOKU says August 26 is the day history will be made as two of the world's most interesting athletes square off in the ring. Boxing champion Floyd MayWeather and mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, will fight on August 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. ICHEOKU says not in a position yet to place bet on who will win the fight. Salute


BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to of their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide in their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

MUAMMAR GADDAFI, A VOICE OF REASON?

Truth can sometimes come out of imbeciles and such could be said of an African petty-dictator, somewhere in the Sahara desert! The once enemy number-one of the west, former terrorists' comforter, maximum ruler of Libya and current chairman of the African Union recently voiced an opinion towards solving African internecine warfare? Muammar Gaddafi advocated for dictatorships throughout Africa to keep the people in check? Icheoku wonders, if this Bedouin-Arab has been cavorting with the likes of Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, Egypt's Mubarak, Gabon's Omar Bongo as well as other petty African dictators?
Icheoku says, Gaddafi's position is somewhat weighty and merits some consideration, provided however that such emerging dictators are benevolent ones! Mummar Gaddafi's argument is trite and cannot be faulted into-to; admitted it will be somewhat a very difficult proposition to sell in the African continent where every little minion wants a private fiefdom for his personal indulgence. According to this pain in the behind of western governments, Africa is essentially tribal in nature and political parties are usually not very cohesive as most of them are founded along these tribal lines. These natural fault-lines are permanent and continuing, and so it is very easy to instigate a losing political party into a mayhem in any given country in Africa. The ensuing bloodshed between these tribes masked as political parties is what African democracy have sadly become today. Tribes engaging one another in a fight to finish simply because they lost an election, which they would interpret as their tribes losing face; based on primordial and subsisting tribal animosities and feudal antagonism from centuries gone by. This is akin to 1979 Nigeria, where political parties such as AG under Awolowo was seen as a Yoruba party, NPP under Azikwe was seen as Igbo party and NPN was seen as Hausa-Fulani party because of Shehu Shagari and Umaru Dikko; although it was the party with the most national outlook? Fortunately today, Nigeria's political parties are succeeding to an extent in melting down these tribal lines?

Gaddafi also called on African countries to copy his Libyan-example where he has been the sole captain of state since 1969; with zero tolerance for any dissenting viewpoint? Icheoku says, dissenting viewpoints should be allowed in order to keep such "dictator-leader" within his promise to the people, otherwise he/she will go astray. Also Gaddafi called for a United States of Africa with a single military force, a single currency and a single passport for Africans to move freely around the continent! Icheoku says, this well articulated idea by Gaddafi is a noble one which deserves to be looked into with every seriousness. When viewed against the backdrop of the European Union's mantra, 'an attack on one is attack on all' and their common Euro currency experience, then it makes every sense to clobber African states into one formidable political entity. Agreeing with Gaddafi that Africa do not have any political structures but merely social structures, Icheoku says, a real thriving democracy is near impossible in Africa. This is because tribal unification under a political party is almost impossible as tribes cannot easily forgo existing rivalries/competition amongst themselves and always view each other with disdainful suspicion.
Admitted there are certain advantages of a democracy over a dictatorship, but a benevolent-dictator could still deliver the so called "dividends of democracy" as would an elected government, to the people. All that is needed is patriotism and love of country on the part of the emerging dictator, who in council with elders and other political elites can map out strategy to move their respective countries forward. But the integration of political assets will be a strategic good move, in order to give Africa the much needed but missing clout to play in the international arena.
Icheoku says, Muammar Gaddafi is either an African patriot with a burning desire to see Africa triumph or he is a petty-dictator scheming for a much larger empire/kingdom to morph his power into a phantom menace! Either way, Gaddafi could be right as Africa urgently needs a baby-sitter to coral all the stateless and ungoverned areas of Africa such as Nigeria's Niger Delta, Somalia, Western Polisario, Darfur, Congo, Zimbabwe, Uganda, etc?
Icheoku says, O African Union, hearken to Muammar Gaddafi and let the rebirth begin!

Gaddafi vows to push Africa unity

Gaddafi vows to push Africa unity
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has vowed to pursue his vision of a United States of Africa, in his inaugural address as the new chairman of the African Union.
Col Gaddafi was elected by the heads of state of the 53-member union behind closed doors at a summit in Ethiopia.
A BBC correspondent at the summit says Col Gaddafi was seen to be the obvious choice, but some delegates are uneasy about his nomination.
Col Gaddafi replaces the Tanzanian President, Jakaya Kikwete.
Wearing a golden brocade robe and cap, Col Gaddafi sat with the traditional African leaders who accompanied him at the front of the room, rather than in the seat for the Libyan delegate.
New rules

Col Gaddafi attended the summit with an entourage of seven local monarchs"I shall continue to insist that our sovereign countries work to achieve the United States of Africa," he said in his inaugural speech.
But he admitted that African leaders were "not near to a settlement" on the issue.
He told fellow summit leaders that his unity project would be approved at the next meeting in July unless there was a majority against it, reports the BBC's Elizabeth Blunt from Addis Ababa.
The AU normally relies on consensus in reaching decisions, but Col Gaddafi introduced what he described as the Islamic concept that "silence is approval," she said.
Under this principle, at least two-thirds of AU leaders would have to actively oppose Col Gaddafi's proposals, rather than simply ignoring his ideas, she added.
'Fantasy'
But an expert on the African Union called the vision of the United States of Africa a "ludicrous fantasy on the part of [Col] Gaddafi."
Kathryn Sturman at the South African Institute of International Affairs said many African leaders would not be prepared to give up their national sovereignty to join the proposed single-state federation proposed by the Libyan leader.
Ms Sturman said the chair of the group does not have any singular decision-making power, and cannot push through any changes without the consensus of the other leaders.

Compromise
During closed-door talks on Sunday, African leaders again postponed Col Gaddafi's dream of closer union.
In a compromise, the summit agreed to transform the African Union Commission - which oversees the AU - into an AU authority with a broader mandate, outgoing chair Mr Kikwete said.
"In principle, we said the ultimate is the United States of Africa. How we proceed to that ultimate - there are building blocks," Mr Kikwete said.
Malawi's President Bingu wa Mutharika said governments wanting greater unity could go ahead on their own, without worrying about splitting Africa.
Erratic
The chairmanship of the African Union is a rotating position held by heads of state for one year.
It was the turn of a North African leader to chair the bloc, and Col Gaddafi was the only one present.
However, some African leaders believe the Libyan leader is too erratic to be AU chairman.
Before he arrived at the summit, he circulated a letter saying he was coming as the king of the traditional kings of Africa, our correspondent says.
Last August, he had a group of 200 traditional leaders name him the "king of kings" of Africa.
The summit's main agenda - to boost Africa's energy and transport networks - was pushed largely to the fringes, weighed down by the grim realities of the global economic downturn.

Gaddafi wants Caribbean in Africa

Col Gaddafi also raised eyebrows with another AU speech last week
Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi has said he would like a United States of Africa to include "Caribbean islands with African populations".

Col Gaddafi, speaking in Tripoli as the African Union's (AU) new chairman, said this could include Haiti, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.

The Libyan leader also sympathised with Somali pirates, describing their actions as self-defence.

Last week he said that multi-party democracy was not right for Africa.

The BBC's Rana Jawad in the Libyan capital says Col Gaddafi's critics believe he is too erratic to be chairman of the 53-nation AU.

A week into his appointment his agenda for Africa is expanding and his views remain as controversial as ever to some people, she says.

Praise for pirates

Celebrating his new role at his compound in Tripoli on Tuesday, Col Gaddafi suggested Caribbean islands should join the AU and become a bridge between Africa and Latin America.

He went on to tell a gathering of some 400 guests that Somali pirates were only hitting back against other countries stealing marine wealth from the region's waters.

Col Gaddafi said the United Nations should protect Somali waters from the piracy of other countries.

He also said he would use his 12 months at the helm of the AU to try to resolve Africa's conflicts, including Darfur and Somalia.

Last week, the Libyan leader used his inaugural address as rotating head of the AU in Ethiopia to push his long-cherished pet project of a United States of Africa.

He envisages a single African military force, a single currency and a single passport for Africans to move freely around the continent.

But the response from many of his fellow African leaders was lukewarm, with some saying the proposal would add an unnecessary layer of bureaucracy.

He also raised eyebrows by saying that multi-party democracy only led to bloodshed in Africa and that the best model for Africa was his own country, where opposition parties are not allowed.
