Not bad at all.

Tactical vests and ammo pouches should be included if not done already
|Politics / Re: Nigeria Would’ve Collapsed Had Officials Of My Govt Stole That Much- Jonathan by BlackBaron: 12:48pm On Jan 28|
It's not rocket science.
Money from oil revenues were under declared or stolen at the point of source by those in charge. Basically, they were stopped before being fed into the system. Hence why it's still baffling to him at the type of stealing going on under his nose because he knew very little as President.
Proof of oil lifted as was spotted in even the limited PWC audit (for example) were not commensurate with funds repatriated to the Government, yet still doesn't understand.
About the supposed $2 billion, no one worth a brain believes it got lifted just like that, but by goodness! The hardware bought were never close to reaching that number. Bottom line is some of the security funds got diverted to unintended purposes.
'Does he understand all this?'

'I will fight corruption with technology' once said Jonathan.
That dude could not be said to even effectively rule over a house of 10.
His role in power was like to sign 'cheques', absolutely lost control of other facets of his administration.

It's like the whole nation is contaminated with corruption.
It's Everywhere you go. All we want are strong institutions that can go after whoever even if she was the President's wife.
It's like every boss just sat in their respective offices vacuuming and distributing resources that passed through their table like it was their grandfather's business dynasty.

|Politics / Re: Return Money Collected From Dasuki, PDP Tells Members by BlackBaron: 1:03pm On Jan 11|
Dasuki did not start disbursement on his volition. His orders were from the top ala Goodluck Jonathan.
Why's Jonathan sitting easy if he oversaw spending of part of security funds for his own Re election?
This country's systems are so badly lopsided.

|Education / Re: Buhari Declares Free Higher Education by BlackBaron: 6:03pm On Dec 22, 2015|
You'll never have quality education with the kind of paltry sum the Government invests on education especially for tertiary institutions.
Go and read up on countries with similar initiatives and find out how much they spend to assure the education given is quality!
|Nairaland / General / Re: Should Uploading Photos Of Dead Bodies Be Banned On Nairaland? by BlackBaron: 9:16am On Dec 18, 2015|
mensdept:How does depicting gore and mangled corpses equate to your own half brained analogy! Is that your life goal to feast your eyes on dead victims of mostly innocents?
Most of the pics here are accident and crime victims which sometimes can be distressing to people close to them.
If your humanity has been stripped to seeing dead bodies strewn everywhere like dead flies as a normality, then you may as well continue.

|Nairaland / General / Re: Should Uploading Photos Of Dead Bodies Be Banned On Nairaland? by BlackBaron: 1:23am On Dec 18, 2015|
I'd previously mentioned this before, seems the owner likes it.
It's highly disrespectful and lack of courtesy to allow all manner of dead human displayed in full glare especially those that they put on the front page.
|Politics / Re: Accessing Nigeria's Military Capability In The Face Of The Iranian Threat. by BlackBaron: 12:10pm On Dec 17, 2015|
The Iranian army is based around a religious ideology. Let's just say their military doctrine is all about kill or be killed.
They regard death or martyrdom as the ultimate sacrifice and so even if we were to outmatch them, they'll not tire until everyone of them is wiped off.
At the same time, Iranian influence in Nigeria is minimal. They don't appear to have a huge diaspora in Nigeria nor is there likely to be a threat spinned off via some of the (Shia) Lebanese present in Nigeria.
Nigeria is also surrounded by quite a few countries who are not Shia adherents making their reach to be almost impossible into Nigeria.
Long story short, Iran ain't gonna try shït nor can do nothing.

I'm seeing more and more REVA's taking the brunt of IEDs in the North East. Seems to be a credible vehicle.
Any info on how the Bigfoot holds up in IED situations?

AMI3:Wake up! A huge bulk of the funds are spent on buying cars, luxury items and choice mansions from Abuja, Lagos and so.
They all stole so much, they forgot to build quality hospitals. In other words, even the common man ain't going to benefit from it.
|Politics / Re: SEE How They Are Spraying Money At Ex-dg Of Nimasa's In-law Wedding by BlackBaron: 2:39pm On Dec 15, 2015|
This very negative culture of spraying money.
Only seen with Nigerians or the oil rich Arabs.
When you work very little for the money in your account, this is how you expend your money.

Some of these stories are so weird and sound incredible that I don't want to believe it's true. NSA simply added 'department of finance' to its portfolio?!
When we start seeing convictions of big wigs, I'll be a believer.

|Politics / Re: Arm Deal Scandal- Like Fashola Jonathan Doesn't Sign Cheques. by BlackBaron: 9:54am On Dec 08, 2015|
If you all have the good of your country at heart, you'll never support anyone blindly nor be in the camp of both major political parties.
Fashola's a laughable one that is just plain shït faced lying.
Jonathan oversaw a take all you get regime.

|Politics / Re: EFCC Arrests Salihu Atawodi For N600m Arms Scam by BlackBaron: 8:10am On Dec 04, 2015|
The justice department seems to be a weak link with their alternative ways of giving legal succour to powerful thieves. All these revelations, someone needs to get a pioneering befitting jail term that'll set the motion for other thieves.
Start prosecutions now, any judge aiding and abetting should be publicly and massively shamed

When you have so much underemployed humans, you get an almost limitless supply of miscreants.
From North, West to the East.
Country's already lawless but no need to act like the extremists up north who will maim butterflies for ulterior views. I hope stuff like this gets nipped quickly.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Battle Field Discussion (picture/video) Of African Military . by BlackBaron: 8:06pm On Dec 03, 2015|
Ok Dasuki, the dude in charge of procurement didn't know what he was saying or how many tanks he supposedly bought.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Battle Field Discussion (picture/video) Of African Military . by BlackBaron: 5:31pm On Dec 03, 2015|
bidexiii:Are you asking me why your country is so secretive to shield number of MRAPS from whats a private defence company?
The head of the former government's NSA stated 14 we never heard his mention of mrap numbers.
So as the leader of the procurement mentioned 14, did you import the others?
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Battle Field Discussion (picture/video) Of African Military . by BlackBaron: 3:00pm On Dec 03, 2015|
100 tanks, 50 tanks.
All good. Our tanks were purchased via Excalibur from Hungary. This is well known for those monitoring external defence stuff. Go on and link to the eventual transfer by rail to Czech Republic to excalibur.
Start googling and see for yourself.
And if the ex nsa has stated a certain number of tanks, where are your own numbers from.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Battle Field Discussion (picture/video) Of African Military . by BlackBaron: 2:28pm On Dec 03, 2015|
bidexiii:Dasuki's lawyers released statements about 14 tanks bought. SIPRI stated same. These tanks were part of the bunch sold by Hungary to excalibur.
Like said, supply me valid references for your own numbers.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Battle Field Discussion (picture/video) Of African Military . by BlackBaron: 2:07pm On Dec 03, 2015|
14 tanks were only delivered.
SIPRI mentions 10 + 4 tanks.
If you're current with international norms, questions were being raised (various international blogs plus videos and pics showing excalibur before it was known that they were to be exported) about Czech Republic trying to move tanks into Ukraine at the height of the Russian/Ukrainian crisis (this were some that eventually became Nigeria's)
Unless you can do better than the sources you posted, I'll believe we got more than a bit over a dozen.
By the way, excalibur purchased the tanks from Hungary.
