NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.

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 PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"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.

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS MCGREGOR

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.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“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

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

"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)


ONLY THE POOR WISH THEY HAD STUFF?

“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.

LEAKED EMBASSY CABLES, WIKILEAKS NOT THE REALLY CULPRIT?


WikiLeaks, a non-profit media organization dedicated to bringing news and information to the public; and which provides a portal for sources around the world to leak information to the world audience, has recently been in the cross-hairs of America, for leaking some vital diplomatic cables. They published the said cables, convinced that it is their ethical responsibility to reveal to the world some hitherto suppressed and censored American government materials which WikiLeaks termed injustices.With just a strike of the enter-key on their computer's keyboard, a total of 251,287 documents, comprising of 261,276,536 words, dating from 28th December 1966 to 28th February 2010 and originated from 274 embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions world-wide, was released to the world for their consumption. Government officials from Washington to Moscow to London to Kabul to Riyadh are crying foul that Wiki-Leakers have done them irreparable damage and governments confidences severely harmed.Icheoku says the indignation and antagonism  expressed and directed against WikiLeaks over this leak may however be misplaced as the real leaker here, the real culprits deserving of  condemnation, is not Wiki-Leaks themselves but all those government officials with access, who were privy to these documents, and who actually leaked them to the leaker-in-chief, WikiLeaks WikiLeaks is just a vehicle with which those in government spilled the beans which they wanted the world audience to see for whatever purpose they may have in mind. Had these government officials not sabotaged their government's diplomatic efforts by leaking those documents to WikiLeaks, possibly to undermine the government and ridicule it, Icheoku says there is no way in hell Wiki-Leaks could have had access to those documents; talk-less of publishing them. So the government through the FBI should refocus their effort at the whodunit and investigate those officials who came in contact with the published cables, to unravel who actually poured the water into a basket expecting it to stay put and not leak out. Someone or some people in government circle handed these documents to Wiki-Leaks and these are the real culprits here and not a website that exists to leak things and reveal hidden facts. Icheoku says the American government has the wrong guy in their cross-hairs as  WikiLeaks is not the provocateur/suspect; but those involved government officials!Icheoku is not in anyway justifying or condoning putting the government in Washington DC or elsewhere in any unsavory position by disclosing the processes involved in their diplomatic equivalent of making the hamburger. But if according to these Wiki-Leakers, "the cables show the extent of US spying on its allies and the UN; turning a blind eye to corruption and human rights abuse in "client states"; backroom deals with supposedly neutral countries; lobbying for US corporations; and the measures US diplomats take to advance those who have access to them", then it may be worthy an effort to draw the attention of the tax-payers of America, whose money bankrolls these alleged, to these happenings through their disclosure. However, provided their purpose is to inform the public but not to unduly embarrass the government; it may be in order to somewhat put paid to these double-standards government practices and force the government to practice what it preaches and in the open.According to WikiLeaks, "these document reveals the contradictions between the US’s public persona and what it says behind closed doors and shows that if citizens in a democracy want their governments to reflect their wishes, they should ask to see what’s going on behind the scenes." This looks like plausible argument to make but in the wildlife-world that we live in, it is easier said than done as without all these intriguing happenstances, possibly our standard of living in America would have been akin to those in third world countries. But through all these twists and turns and arm-twisting, Washington has been able to maintain an America that is the envy of the whole world in terms of quality of life. Simple economics teaches that a loss somewhere is a gain somewhere else; and for everything we have some one somewhere was deprived. However long or manner it takes to plug the leaking diplomatic cables, admitted the genie has been let out of the bottle; one thing sprouts out from the incident - the fine-line between right to speech First Amendment constitutional freedom and the need to protect a state from such heinous embarrassment, must be balanced and weighted against the state's overriding security interest and ensure it is maintained without let; and anyone breaching that, including Wiki-Leaks, should be severely dealt with.
What WikiLeaks did by these published documents was to pitch nations against nations and one country against another. Now it is suspicion galore amongst countries and who knows who shall ever trust one another anymore or even enough to disclose their truthful opinion on any given world-issues again. WikiLeaks has driven a knife into world diplomatic fiber and their center of trust can no longer hold. Most countries will henceforth be very reluctant to trust another with very sensitive information, doubtful that it will not be kept with the utmost secrecy governing its disclosure.


The United States government especially, shall feel the most heat as many countries would henceforth be very reluctant to disclose to them what they are really thinking or feeling towards some burning world issues. But who knows where WikiLeaks sourced their information from; whether it is from outside sources other than Washington DC, bent on embarrassing President Obama and his team. But hey, until full disclosure through forensic investigation, Icheoku and the rest of the world would just wait and see where the trail will tail off. In the interim, we urge Julian Assange, the face of WikiLeaks, to turn himself in and answer for his alleged sexual-crimes with which he is charged and for which he remains on the run; and cease from remaining a fugitive on the run having been placed by Interpol on its red notice of wanted persons.
