July 23, 2015

United States declined Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari request for arms to combat Boko Haram militant group during recent meeting at the White House on July 20, 2015.

Boko Haram is Nigeria’s nightmare wreaking havoc in daylight as well.

Nigerian President Buhari briefing on the militant faction Boko Haram incessant violence since 2009 having claimed at least 10,000 innocent lives and abductions of women and girls in large numbers did not receive White House empathy.

Accordingly Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari reaction to White House position is United States aiding and abetting Boko Haram.

United States exemplary record in this context cannot be slighted due to significance of the issue.

Palestine:  United States with Congress approval of annual $3 billion in military aid besides monetary assistance to ally Israel prolong violent occupation with continuous oppression, persecution and killing of children, women and men in Palestine.

Egypt:  United States $1.4 billion annual aid allows for U.S. direct control over Egypt military and political affairs suppressing human rights in Pharaoh land.

Libya:  The North African nation is a weapons warehouse to United States and western sourced stockpiles with Saudi Arabia and Qatar as chief distributors to terror operatives in the Middle East and North, Central, East and West Africa.

Yemen:  United States supplied F-16’s and diverse military hardware with armory to Saudi Arabia relentlessly used to decimate oil rich impoverished nation.

Bahrain: The Gulf state headed by Al-Khalifa regime hosting United States naval fifth fleet is a regular recipient of conventional arsenal from United States through Saudi Arabia and Britain’s defense contracts for use in the violent crackdown of pro-democracy movement up until now.

Syria:  United States sponsoring terrorism with ammunitions cache channeled via Croatia to Saudi Arabia reaching terror networks conflated with Qatar and Turkey arms provisions perpetuate conflict in Syria giving birth to al Nusra Front, ISIS, ISIL from the original al-Qaeda spreading across to Iraq, Lebanon and beyond.

Afghanistan:  Taliban and al-Qaeda access to arms and ammunitions made available from poppy cultivation and dealing with drug lords under United States and NATO operation.

Pakistan:  United States latest agreement on arms flow to Pakistan is to maintain the nation as terror haven subjecting Pakistan citizens to hostile conditions besides cross border tensions and incidents involving neighbors on all sides viz. India, Iran and Afghanistan.

Latin America:

South America: Colombia:  The South American nation with oil reserves and producer of gold, silver, platinum, emeralds and coal is United States military base. Colombia lately became the launch pad for United States predator drones in the region.

United States intelligence agency instigated killings of Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) leaders and FARC retaliation sabotage peace talks with Colombian government.

Caribbean & Central America:  United States extensive military and intelligence presence predominantly to topple democratically elected governments notwithstanding drug trade is the bedrock for corruption and political instability.

North America:  Mexico:   United States fast and furious program under incumbent administration facilitated weapons flurry to Mexican drug cartels prompting massive bloodshed and population exodus along the border.

United States intelligence apparatus linked to latest event with drug lord el Chapo – Joaquin Guzman escape from maximum security prison causing embarrassment to ruling government is self-explanatory.

United States traditional indulgence and sprawling activities having increased at an alarming rate,

The White House response to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari plea to contain Boko Haram, stating United States law prohibits arms sales to nations that fail to tackle human rights– is a comedy mocking tragedy and highlights United States conflicting policy worldwide.

The solution to Nigeria situation is for government to intercept and prevent arms procurement by Boko Haram and affiliates with tough measures blocking delivery passage alongside pursuing militant group to surrender and end external forces backed terror outfit.

Contemporary dogma on war and terror is to promote extremism and militancy not barring cannibalism witnessed in Syria defining decadence era conclusion.

Military might presumed right only to discover the idea was not bright.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
