"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.

Tuesday, December 16, 2014


 Icheoku says unfortunately our world forever changed since that fateful Tuesday morning of September 11, 2001 when the whole world helplessly watched as two planes plowed into World Trade Center buildings in New York? Icheoku asked then and continues to ask now what would make some young men so incensed that they would fly jumbo jets into a building, killing themselves as well as several thousand innocents in the process? Anyway, America has since moved on from the events of that day, admitted no one has forgotten nor will ever forget the unfathomable horrific tragedy that was 9/11. Since then, in response to the attack, several wars have been waged and fought on several fronts and countries and some of them are still continuing till date and may never conclusively see an end. Was what those 9/11 hijacker did reprehensible, you bet; was the response commensurate and specifically tailored to meet the provocateurs'  provocation, Icheoku says not when the attack on Iraq is factored in; as that was rather a stretch and an off-course frolic excessiveness, notwithstanding the passion that was provoked in Americans by the attack on their financial headquarters.  

Unfortunately the same Islamic terrorism has been popping up everywhere from Nigeria to Somalia to Kenya to Mali to Europe to Russia to Israel and practically anywhere and everywhere they find soft targets and sometimes like in Syria, became embolden enough to take on a sitting government. Today it reared its ugly head once again in the land known for its kangaroos and koala bears as well as vastness. It struck in a cafe in downtown Financial District Sidney Australia in what has become known as the Sidney Siege. There an Islamic zealot, Man Haron Monis, held over a Lindt Chocolat Cafe, taking so many hostage; which hostage-situation lingered on for over sixteen hours before the security forces stormed the cafe, freeing the remaining hostages but not before the gun man as well as two others, Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson, died in a crossfire. Icheoku says may their souls including that of the gunman now rest in peace. 

Icheoku says what a shock indeed it must have been for the Aussies who always marvel at how Americans manage to cope under the siege of gun violence that has since taken over America? Ironically while the siege of Sidney was going on, another crazed-out gunman in America, Bradley William Stone, shot and killed six people in Philadelphia suburbs,  including his ex-wife, his ex-mother in-law, his ex-grandmother in-law, his ex-sister in-law and her husband and own his daughter by the now dead ex-wife. Icheoku makes bold to say that in America people are sort of now used to the fact that people die and people get shot and people also get killed by gunshots. It is a kind of past time and no longer a biggie that we kill each other every day and sometime on public television or caught on camera like the choke-hold death in New York or the little twelve year old boy in Ohio that was shot dead without being giving a chance to drop his toy-gun? But the Aussies, not being used to gun violence, must be sorrowfully wondering what kind of a bad Christmas present this Islamic lunatic brought to their Sidney; but in America, we clean up and we move on.

Icheoku says the Western culture has been dismissively waving off these sporadic attacks by Muslim terrorists as lone wolf attacks, but Icheoku says it is about time it is treated for what it is - a conflict of cultures, trying hard to dominate one another. It is about time the West called a meeting with these Islamic countries that produce these lunatics and find a way to tackle the ideology that feeds this kind of reprehensible behavior. Admitted it is going to take a long time to achieve a workable solution but it is a course worth exploring in order to effectively stop the bleeding which their activities is causing both our purse, our human resources as well as our collective general psychology. Admitted also that the West might win all the big battles of declared battle grounds, but how do we go about winning the little tiny minutia battles like the Sidney cafe Siege, which we do not know where and when they will pop up?  

Today in our world, we have al Querida worldwide, al Nasura Front, ISIS, Boko Haram, Maghreb, al Shabaab, Yemeni and other sundry pockets of Islamic terrorists running amok in different parts of the world. Query, if this terrorism is not religious-tinged, why are all these terrorists  groups all MUSLIMS and the spread of Islam motivated? Icheoku says it is about time the West stopped lying to itself about the motivation of these terrorists who possibly have backers from their Islamic home countries, and accept the declared war by the Islamic culture against their own civilization and give them a bloody nose and once and for all resolve the question of supremacy. Icheoku says now is the time to do this or the West will forever continue to live in fear and trepidation for not knowing when and where this terrorists would strike. 

The worse of them all are the enemies in our midst, who are freely living among us and yet plotting evil against us. Icheoku says is such conduct still becoming of a good GUEST's behavior or is it better to just deport all these fanatics back to their various home countries and remain permanently shut out from the West? Why would they leave their oppressive Islamic countries for the West, yet bring along  with them their violent way of life. Icheoku says if they had it so good with what they had back home, why did they live their countries in the first place? But regrettably, the West is not even serious tackling these terrorists everywhere, otherwise why have they not supported Nigeria in their fight against Boko Haram by at least selling them weapons. Icheoku says it is very unfortunate that Nigeria has been begging to buy weapons from the West to help them fight Boko Haram; they are not asking the West to give them hand-out but want to pay for them,  yet the West would not deal. So please can anyone with better knowledge tell Icheoku how this war on global jihadist terrorism would be fought and won if the West continuously remain very  selective in what they consider Islamic terrorism worth fighting and those ones they treat as mere Africans' problem? 

Anyway living in fear of these jihadists has become part of our way of life in the West and there is no silver bullet to shoot down this phobia. All Icheoku could advise is for everybody to be of permanent good behavior and also remain in permanent peace with his/her maker, just in case the next visit to a Star Bucks coincidentally becomes the day another one of these lunatics would be holding the place up and life as we know it evaporates as result. What a sad commentary the Sidney Siege is and Icheoku prays for strength and God's fortitude to families of all the deceased; and also courage for the rest of us still around not to cower under such continuing acts of terror. Their Sidney siege is but a rest-stop in their universal siege and the world must fight back and fight harder and if more bloody, so be it. But winning this war on terror is not going to be anytime soon if ever. On a hindsight, may be we should have left them alone under Saddam Hussein butchery and not unnecessarily stir the hornet's nest in the first place. Now they have scattered everywhere and are unleashing their sting as they see fit and get the opportunity. Icheoku says they have murdered peace and should themselves not know peace!
