    Kaiiiiiiiiii………………………. its OVER 4 Nigeria!! Please we don’t want yankee’s Help oooo

    5 REASONS WHY WE DONT WANT AMERICA OR AS THEY USUALLY DISGUISE…… NATO

    1.) Chiefly, as a Nigerian Myself, its sort of implies that we r handing over our National Sovereignty back to our Masters. (the Oyinbos) If in 2014, the greatest so called Black Nation in the World is still up for swinging its borders open for unchecked foreign Military. I weep 4 Nigeria!! so its now BOKO HARAM vs NATO!!! ”Aint that ”Funny”

    2) When they do come in, there is no actual Guarantee, they gonna Find the abducted girls or Quell the SECT’s menacing Rampage of the North. Instead what i suspect is that they gonna seek to inflame the Conflict with Tactics i’m gonna discuss in point 3.

    3)@ this stage, NATO will love to have a full blown out WAR in Nigeria, it is in their best interest, to weaken Naija’s influence Economically n Militarily in W. Africa!! they will inflame the conflict by killing more innocent Nigerian citizens than BOKO HARAM itself. U don’t believe me, wait till their DRONES start coming thru’

    4) When they realise that their Tactics have made d North fully ungovernable. This would create a lot of Tension in d North with d ripples being felt in d southern part of the country. @ this point, a northen vs southern Clash will b all it takes to throw d whole country into Chaos.

    5)If this does happen as predicted, Now, we will know what we’ve opened our borders too as well as NATO’s ulterior MOTIVE.—– the streams of CRUDE OIL in d Niger Delta!!

    Did i 4get to mention that, somewhere along the Line, MEND would have risen up again from their Slumber rearing to go n STAND UP N B COUNTED FOR THE SAME CAUSE as NATO (CRUDE OIL). I even expect d COWARDS– (YORUBA) to stand up tall too!! but i know they will either join d Hausas or the IGBOS. if they stand alone, i will b pleasantly surprised.

      Ashley B. Instead of flinging wild accusations and calling fellow Nigerians cowards. WHAT IS YOUR SOLUTION?? It’s easy to seat behind your computer screen DOING NOTHING. What will you have them do then? Be part of the solution not the problem.

      Thank u ooo my sister for calling me out with the Solution. A full robust solution is what i honestly dont have. And i will say categorically here too that i doubt the Messiahs Coming in, in d form of America, Uk, France, china or Canada have the solution either. Hence, y i’m advocating Yankee in particular stay away from this Matter. so that these bombings dont go from 3 a week to 30 a day.

      Now to address a few of the commentators saying a brother has watched too many movies, or saying this is d dumbest thing they’ve heard or read. I’m not surprised. if d Info is way over ur head, why dont u do a solid research on this same internet with ur same thick skull and agile fingers and Find out for yourself if u will @ least comprehend America’s ever expanding secret Mission in Africa (W.africa) And by America here, make no mistake it is actually the CIA

      Whilst u r @ it, read about the following
      1– US embassy in Nigeria
      for example, eavesdropping on Nigerian government communication,
      financial espionage on leading Nigerians,
      support and funding of subversive groups and insurgents, (BOKO HARAM)
      sponsoring of divisive propaganda among the disparate groups of Nigeria
      and the use of visa blackmail to induce and coerce high ranking Nigerians into acting in favour of US interests.

      2– ACRI Which stands for Africa Crises Response Initiative

      3– READ ABOUT HOW CIA CHANGED ACRI TO AFRICOM. US Africa Command or AFRICOM

      4– read about how the US created AFRICOM in 2008 and how the CIA uses it to response to the growing influence of a rapidly expanding industrial China in Africa, the goal of AFRICOM is to seize key strategic areas in Africa and bring them under US control in order to block China’s access to vital energy and mineral resources for its expanding economy. in this Case Nigeria, I mean, how long has China n Nigeria been friends n thier Trade Volume has hit $30.65b. Yankee is bound to be pissed.

      5- Read about the CIA’s mission to pakistanize Nigeria by 2015. I mean if u had paid any interest u would have read these info from US leaked Cables as exposed by J Assange and as printed in the UK guardian.

      I can go on n on, about the CIA’s ulterior motive in Nigeria, its left to u, for once in your Life to do some proper research and think out of the box. Okay, lets even imagine, they are coming to Help your country, so all these so called foreign Military of US, China, UK, Canada, France etc are all coming to look for 250 abducted school girls, and then go back home. Come on!!! Wake up and smell the flipping Coffee!!!

      P.S
      Guys, pls @ 28 yrs old, i wont come n intentionally yarn learned peeps dust now.
      I wouldnt want it done to me. (n i’m not patronising any TOM DICK or TUNDE)

      Lol! you called her comment dumb? Y’all stay gullible and oblivious to various things. Maybe she’s right or maybe she’s not. Time will tell.
