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.


"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


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.


"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.


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.

"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew


“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ


"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)


“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

Icheoku decries Uruguay's illegal second goal-keeper, Luis Suarez's one match suspension by FIFA, for deliberately parrying off a goal-bound header by Ghana's No 18, Dominic Adiyiah, as simply not enough, adequate or sufficient a punishment and/or deterrent. FIFA should have used the opportunity to send a strong message that criminal (cheating) behavior of that magnitude will not be tolerated at such level of its competition or any other one for that matter; but not the slap on the wrist of a one-match suspension he received, which will not make much dent in the team's performance-ability, being akin to the red card shown him and yet the team went ahead to win the match anyways. The entire Uruguayan team should have been sent packing and out of the competition, they are the final and ultimate beneficiary of Luis Suarez criminality of stealing a Ghanaian prospective winning goal and should not have been allowed to profit from his crime by proceeding to the next quarter final rounds of the competition.
Any trained eyes looking at the position of the ball, would agree that it had already beaten the attempted header of Uruguay's other last man on the left before Luis Suarez on the right, deliberately used his both hands to parry the ball away from inside the goal. This is just another glaring case of the ongoing referee snafus at the FIFA World Cup South Africa 2010 with a referee not ruling a ball which has crossed the goal line a goal? The football/soccer governing body does not seem to be serious enough with reigning in and arresting the ugly situation which is spoiling the fun of the competition and have now enabled a side which, to all intent and purpose, lost a match to benefit from their frontal assault of the rules of engagement as they non-meritoriously proceed to the next quarter final rounds of the competition. Just look at the goal line and the position of the bent-over backwards Uruguayan other defender who attempted but failed to head off the ball; then take a look at Luis Suarez's goal-line toe position and his twisted body, as well as his hands position. Only one conclusion is possible from all these deductions, - that the ball was already in the net, a goal and should have been awarded to Ghana before the drama of missed penalties kicked in.
In essence, Ghana was robbed of their victory both by Luis Suarez and the referee, whose actions (commission and omission) affected the outcome of the match. Winning at all cost and by all and any means necessary, defeats the main essence of the world cup competition, which is supposed to help foster unity of the world, through international felicitations. So, tell Icheoku how any Ghanaian or African or even black-man in general will not constantly be reminded of this 'robbery' whenever a Uruguayan comes into his/her focus? Icheoku says, Uruguayans will henceforth because of Luis Suarez broad daylight stealing, be perceived as soccer-cheats and possibly some other thing cheats? If FIFA allows Uruguay to get away with this 'act of murder of its football competition' and Uruguayans proceed to the quarter finals of this competition as is most likely they would, FIFA would have, by necessary implication, officially instituted cheating as no other losing side will ever allow itself to be outscored; instead they will all turn to goalkeeping; after-all they have seen that penalties can be missed, and would rather take a chance at that option. The uncertainty of a penalty will always be a preferred option by loosing countries and their teams, to assured in-bound goals.
The right thing for FIFA to do or have done is to upturn the match-result and award it to Ghana: - declare Ghana the moral winner for playing and winning according to the rules; disqualify Uruguay for being jointly responsible for the illegal act of their player and further, ban Luis Suarez for life from playing in any FIFA sanctioned and organized football competition. Luis Suarez brought dishonor to the fun-competition, as another South (Latin) American football cheat, Brazil's Pele and Argentina's Maradona' fabled "hands of God" considered? Flagrant cheating as exhibited by Luis Suarez should be drastically punished by sending such countries out of the competition so that such cheat can go back to his country to explain to his country men and women, why he caused them their playing chance at the competition. It is just like allowing an armed robber to keep his loot, just because he was caught and sent to the jail; no Icheoku says the beneficiary country is equally at fault and should not be allowed to benefit from such offensive act of one of its players. What if they were all in cahoots in the scheme to win at all cost?
Uruguayans and their cheating scumbag, Luis Suarez, deserves a boot out of the South Africa world cup competition and Luis additionally should be banned for life from the competition. He irreparably damaged FIFA and its world cup competition until redressed completely in full. This is the right thing to do, the correct thing to do, the fair thing to do and another case which makes the current call for goalmouth/post technology not sound loud enough. Technology which will help referees in cases as this to see for a second time, that this was a clear goal and the most plausible decision, before making their call final.
To the Black Stars of Ghana, Icheoku says, thank you, kudos to you for a job well done; admitted providence and the cheating hand of Luis Suarez conspired to rob you what would have been soccer's crown jewelry for Ghana, Africa, the black race and other minorities of this world, in South Africa 2010. You made Africa proud to the end. Hopefully the government of President John Evans Attah Mills will still go ahead to accord you a rousing reception whenever you make it back to Accra as you richly deserved it - you won but were robbed of your victory! Walk tall with your heads held high, chests pushed out like models, you are the new soccer kings and ambassadors of Africa; your wonderful run in South Africa 2010 just crowned you that. Congratulations!

Ghana team to be honored by government

ACCRA, Ghana (AP)—Ghana’s World Cup players will be given national honors and $20,000 each after reaching the quarterfinals in South Africa.

“You deserved to be honored because you have made Ghana and indeed Africa proud by your performance,” Mills said Tuesday in announcing the accolades at a lunch for the team. The Black Stars were greeted by cheering fans when they returned to Accra on Monday night.

Ghana was adopted as Africa’s team during its run to the final eight of the tournament. The squad came close to being the first team from the continent to make the semifinals; they were knocked out in a penalty shootout by Uruguay in the quarters. The other five African teams all failed to qualify for the second round.

“You did not win the World Cup but, through your performance, you carried high the flags of not only Ghana but Africa,” Mills said.

As well as the cash bonus for the players, a government official said members of the coaching team would receive a reward of $10,000 each.

Former United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan, who is from Ghana, wrote in a letter to the team that he was one of millions left “heartbroken” after the Uruguay loss.

Ghana was denied victory when a blatant hand ball prevented a goal in the final seconds of extra time. Asamoah Gyan missed the resulting penalty kick, forcing the shootout.

“You won because you brought us all together,” Annan’s letter said. “The lasting trophy to take away from the tournament is this incredible moment of unity.”
