Black West Africa & Boko Haram are Not a Priority to the West – CNN Military Analyst

Published

 on

cnn bokoThe western world’s response to the recent terror attacks in France, in comparison with the response to the Boko Haram Baga massacre, is currently a hot topic.

Many have questioned why a large amount of attention has been placed on France, while the horrific Baga massacre in Nigeria seemed to receive lukewarm attention.

CNN military analyst, Maj. Gen. James “Spider” Marks recently revealed a controversial perspective on the matter.

According to him, the United States has the capability to root out Boko Haram but it’s not a priority. He also stated that Black West Africa is not a priority. He goes on to state that if Boko Haram were in some other region of the world perhaps in “White Africa” (North Africa) or in the Middle East, it would cause more alarm.

“Very stark, very hard to say, but that’s the case right now,” he said.

      Did our stupid president and leaders watch this?

      Stop all stupid campaigns stop all stupid rallies,,,, and focus on the current problem on ground! If you need so much campaign to encourage people to vote for you then you are not good and we don’t want you.

      If our Goodluck president was any good, at this point he would say “stop all campaigns and lets focus on our citizens and how to secure their lives and wipe of Boko Haram.” But nooooo, the imp is more concentrated about retaining power he knows nothing about!

      We should make all presidential candidates take a televised IQ test and that’s how we’ll know who the next president will be.

      Am so mad at our stupid leaders who know nothing other than scaling fences and fighting in palliament…. and looting our funds. Then making your citizens look up to the sky waiting for Europe and America to feed them and help secure their lives……

    NA NEWS!
    Lol did this dude just find this out or they just need something to talk about. (This is unrelated but this reminds me of how they say Kylie Jenner “big lips” are a trend now. Since when was big lips a trend. Black women has had this since life came into existence so because Kylie Jenner has it now its a trend). Its on white people its a trend but black its NIGGA LIPS or what that mouth do.
    Anyways the West only cares about the terrorist groups in the middle east because they get oil and resources from them. After they have sucked Africa dry they dumped us to the side. When the problem is closer to them they want to go and march. Why didn’t you march in Africa when people have been dying for the past 3 years.
    When I say racism and that its all about me factor is alive they will say I am lying. It is well.

      And don’t forget that not only are we incompetent, we abuse human rights by jailing innocent gay people over corrupt leaders. We have misplaced priorities. Our government have misplaced priorities. Our backward citizens have misplaced priorities.

      Africans as a whole better rise up from our deep sleep and start afresh. Stop the azonto/alanta/azanta and what have you and realise we have issues that these stupid things can’t fix. This video should be an eye opener to some people who don’t already know that we are dust to the world.

      Buhari’s daughter became a trend, people raising dust. Did any of you dust raisers ask her what her fathers strategy is????

      The government is the mirror image of the society. Instead of Nigerians to question security, they rejoice with the government when they passed the gay law. From a more intelligent society it should have sounded something like this… “Yeah yeah bla bla bla with the gays, what are you doing about boko haram.

      Don’t mind me am just madddd at us and venting

      Please how many gays have been jailed??? If the country is so bad, run for office and try to change it, complaining on the internet solves nothing!. As for me, I have never looked to the west and it is my opinion that this is good for us, no country in history has ever become great without tears, blood and sweat. We have cried and bled we just need to sweat for our nation’s greatness.

    • Shao

      January 18, 2015 at 5:46 pm

      At Elle, you tell me cos I don’t know how many gays have been jailed…. But my point is, as you have just proven, we as people, as a nation have misplaced priorities. Or are you about to ask me “how many misplaced priorities we have?” Am sorry, can’t tell you that either.

      I am in my early twenties and would run for even presidency but I don’t have the experience and am sure there are many out there that do but the old men in power won’t let them. So sorry I won’t run for office with no experience and money/power as my only agenda. Or would you Sir or Madam what ever be you.

      Yes Internet is actually a very strong tool and people can make a positive change via this medium no matter how small. How do you think worldwide awareness for Chibok girls happened? You think someone sent a telegram to “world people?”

      You Sir/madam can also make a tiny positive change void of any financial implementation by writing something sensible cos MAYBE someone that can make a change would read your tiny message on bella naija.

      You get? Sir/madam

      White Folk???? The last time I checked the President of the U.S. was black!!! He sent troops and air strikes to Syria and the middle east without the approval of Congress. He passed immigration reforms by executive order, again a decision made on his own. So before you start turning this into a white and black race issue, ask your black brother in the US, where the hell is his help!!!

      But we have to help ourselves regardless of whether anyone cares . Those in power have the resources to put Naija “in order. I think it’s a shame/pathetic that we can’t fix basic issues. I see no reason why any country should intervene. The consequence of greed, corruption, wickedness, lack of accountability/institutions to enforce laws is why boko harangue is able to operate in Nigeria. Politicians embezzling large some of money but when they are sick they run abroad for treatment that could have been managed or avoided if they invested in healthcare. There is this saying “the shit wey u shit go dey smell follow you”. Nobody is going to come and wipe our ass when we have the ability to do so. Until then, the country will keep oozing of lawlessness.

    Every serious region/country seeks out what is best for its people with certain priorities over others. Didn’t Nigeria refuse help from the West to search for the missing girls?

    I am happy what this guy revealed. I’m happy the pampering of Black Africa is about to be shattered, that idle servanthood and utterly useless position black Africa takes (to be raided and plundered to abyss by invaders), always running to the West for aid that only end up feeding our already fat politicians. The US has refused to sell Nigeria arms, the US has also stopped buying Nigeria’s oil. The US has literally just told Nigeria, she’s the scum of the earth and has no use of her any more! Maybe this will stimulate Nigerians to expect nothing less than exceptional performance in governance as the realization dawns that we are on our own. I’ve never seen a country that has perfected the art of indifference and ignorance of societal issues than Nigeria. At the moment, Nigeria’s priority is to win an election despite the threatening violence we face. Why should the US be concerned when Nigeria’s executive arm is the least bit concerned? Why should they cry more than the bereaved?

      How can you be this confident in ignorance? Jesus Christ! A simple google search would have enlightened you more. The UK and US offered help from day one of the crisis before the social media outcry. It wasn’t until the Nigerian government obviously felt embarrassed by the outcry they sought to be inclusive of other governments. Next time do your research before releasing illiterate bombs on the internet. Ode!

    January 18, 2015 at 1:01 am

    How can it be the West’s priority when Nigeria, a sovereign state has not even made & refuses to make it her priority.!?!?!
    .
    The USA are realists and will only act to defend their own national interest, BH posts no threat to them so why should they act? They could of course offer assistance as they allegedly did when the Chibok girls were taken but Nigeria turned down their initial offer only to later accept minimal assistance after media pressure. State sovereignty means the USA cannot overtly act willy-nilly without the express consent of the home nation and y’all know Jona can’t be bothered. There wasn’t even any internal cry from within Nigeria until foreign nationals & press started picking up on it asking why the silence, not knowing the silence was deliberately coming from within Nigeria as the govt wanted to suppress the tragedy for political gain.

    Nigerian politicians tweeted condolences to France but were silent on the Baga!!! .
    .
    You can’t blame the west for inaction when the Nigerian govt fails to act in service of her citizens and the citizens let her the govt get away with mediocrity.

    While I don’t appreciate this guy talking like this, he is unfortunately being very factual in his analysis. A couple of days ago, CNN ran an interview with some soldiers who said they paid for their own uniforms and were given something like N10,000/month! Which serious country does that? Of course the propaganda arm of the incompetent ruling class came out calling the CNN interview ” satanic”! Until the masses wake up from the mass hypnosis and idol worship of looters, the country cannot move forward. Defense budgets have been converted into private money and the poor soldiers are on their own. The widespread looting of public funds must stop otherwise no country will take us serious and God forbid Nigeria sliding into anarchy. Of course the attitude in the corridors of power is that of alarming indifference.

    I have never felt so discriminated and hurt! In fact, this is my first post ever on this blog.

    The audacity of this utterance is certainly as a result of our corrupt leaders in power and their inability to consider the interest of the people as opposed to their personal interest.

    If Africa, especially Nigeria has not woken to the reality of her inadequacies, I bet this will, rather I so hope it does.

Did the new rebased figures automatically translate to improved lives of citizens? did it change the economy? and you said nigeria is the richest country? these riches you talk about are in the pockets of a few elites who think they are entitled to an entire nations natural resources..privately sharing oil wells as if their father built and discovered the wells, as if its generational inheritance,…Pleaase, try to comment intelligently ndubuisi because this comment is just plain sad.

    Truth hurts.
    The world will take us serious when we are serious with ourselves.
    A country full of innovative, brilliant men and women, just take a look at those ruling us, vying and contesting for elections.
    Is Boko Haram same as the terrorism in France?
    When will Nigeria deal with the issue of mass murder in the North once and for all?
    We put a band aid on it and the wound opens up from time to time under a new name.
    Innocent people keep dying.
    White people have their problems too.We should deal with ours.
    Instead of other Africans helping, they make caricature of us even those that Nigeria helped in their times of need.

    What exactly do you want the US to do? Help usually comes in the form of aid and advisers. Lets say US gives 1 Billion to GEJ govt. Do you think that money will really be used to fight terrorism? Of course not. Will GEJ listen to advisers? No. So what exactly do you want the US to do? Send their own men an women to die for NIgeria … while Nigerian military sits down and watch?
    Lets say US sends in troops. Are we willing to pay the price? Are we willing to have US dictate policy within Nigeria, dump their garbage barges off Nigerias shores.. or whatever they choose as compensation.

    Why are folks upset. Wasn’t it few days ago people responded to an article on the site and agreed on Baga first before Charlie? Ok … here you go. US interest first before NIgeria.

    why should they care about West Africa, do we pay taxes to them. The problem i see here is that we are expecting others to fix our problems for us. We as Nigerians have to put pressure on the people we have “elected” (ie if our votes even count).

    if the Nigerian government doesn’t solve western problems, then it is foolish to expect Western governments to solve Nigerian problems

    • Odine

      January 18, 2015 at 11:51 am

      I couldn’t agree more with you. We pay taxes, our leaders grow fat on them. America provides us with HIV/AIDS funding now they’re cutting short the funds because our stupid, clueless and corrupt leaders not only feed fat on them but end up buying jets with these funds. 12 people died in France, our foolish Dundee leader sent his condolences. 2000 or 150 people died in Baga, it took the daft dude almost a week to speak a word. The fear I have for this country is a growing one which increases daily, but not so much for myself but for my child. Innocent lives are being lost on a daily basis yet all our leaders can think of right now is election campaign? Who are these people for God’s sake? Foolishness has never been such a crime till we got GEJ. Not in any way do I blame the US for making our issue a non-priority or less priority because what are we doing as a people? What are our leaders doing? The church leaders, worst still, the northern rulers. They keep mute while their people are being slaughtered like goats on the streets on a daily basis. We have failed as a people and as a nation, those we’ve entrusted our safety and livelihood have failed us, not just this time round, but on the constant, they continue to fail as by keeping on thieving puppies and dogs like Doyin Okupe, Fani Kayode (whom I’m convinced is suffering from a mental malady) in office. We can’t always expect leaders of the free nations to always come to our aid as though we aren’t a sovereign nation, so if America says black west Africa is not a priority, then it’s up to us to help ourselves, fix our problems and make this country safer and better.

    They didn’t get up and march for France out of the blue. The French people organized the rally themselves. Secondly, those countries tend to have similar values so they stick together. We’ve told them to keep issues which they apparently find important (eg stances on homosexuality) to themselves and we want them to come to our aid whenever we ask for it and stay away when we don’t agree with them? Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. Either way, we are 140 – 150 million. Perhaps when Nigeria marches, international leaders will march in support.

    So lets analyse this shall we?? An American told us we are not a priority to American strategic interests, we are pissed off. GEJ has consistently told Nigerians, in words and indeed that “i don’t give a damn” but some Nigerians still feel he is the best thing to happen to this country after Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed!! So you want to crucify an American for the same thing you are embracing GEJ for??? GEJ was so much in a hurry to commensurate with France over the killing of 17French citizens in terrorist attck that he forgot to acknowledge the killing over 2000 Nigerians by Boko Haram about the same. Why should the West including America cry more than the bereaved?? You people are the hypocrites not America.

    I have read so much from Nigerians on this and I am just upset!! I mean GEJ was so much in a hurry to commensurate with France over the killing of 17French citizens in terrorist attck that he forgot to acknowledge the killing over 2000 Nigerians by Boko Haram about the same. Why should they cry more than the bereaved?? I don’t just get why we expect so much from the West. If a race turned us to slaves for over 500 yrs ago and only decided to abolish slave trade when they were tired of milking the black-race blood for filthy lucre, I won’t expect anything different from thr offspring of such race – not today not forever. I would have been surprised (in fact shocked!) if American had said they will commit their resources to fight insurgency in Nigeria and West Africa. By coming out to say we are not a priority he has just vindicated me on my views about them. I am not surprised. Nigeria including West Africa needs to save itself, not otherwise. Anything short of that is waste of time. America has reduced her consumption of Nigerian oil by 97%, no thanks to shale oil, so why should America care about us???

( just like we did with Ebola ) No need to abuse GEJ and please! what has Buhari’s daughter got to do with this discussion? you are raising dust Dude/YoungGirl ! we know you are Pro APC but please this ain’t your campaign ground……DO leave it for the ”forever young” ”lying” politicians….. Well #AmJustSaying

      SMH SMH SMH People like you that’s keeping Nigeria where it is. Am not pro anybody. ITS NOT ALL ABOUT WHO YOU SUPPORT!!! My vote would have been for fashola had he been a candidate. I was not talking from a political pov as I know nothing in the way of politics. I was just crying like an average Nigerian, like an average citizen on the street who is scared and begging our African leaders to sit up!!!

      Read my comments, read in between lines and think deep. As usual you wait for someone to explain simple texts to you. Very typical. Alright here we go;

      The gay law was an innocent example. I mentioned it cos I remember when it was passed and we Nigerians rejoiced. IT WAS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF MISPLACED PRIORITIES. We rejoiced, forgetting we had bigger fish to fry, we never stopped to question other relevant things like health, power, security and good dang water.

      Another example if you may is Iniedo releasing pictures of her newly acquired range rover while Angelina Jolie is busy tweeting about Nigeria and Baga. Heck even Kim khadarsian was tweeting about Nigeria, raising dust. Do you get my point now?!?!?!

      Funny how you concentrated on that one gay point and then the most minute statement about buhari’s daughter, how is that pro APC???? You again prove that we as people have misplaced priorities.

      Focus on the story, say something good just in case someone who has the power to help us reads your comment.

    This comment is just sad..bia ndubuisi, they rebased your gdp from the ancient and modern figures (what they should have done years ago mind you) the figures look good and you think that means anything? whose live has improved based on the new figures? Did the new rebased figures automatically translate to improved lives of citizens? did it change the economy? and you said nigeria is the richest country? these riches you talk about are in the pockets of a few elites who think they are entitled to an entire nations natural resources..privately sharing oil wells as if their father built and discovered the wells, as if its generational inheritance,…Pleaase, try to comment intelligently ndubuisi because this comment is just plain sad.
