There are good and bad people everywhere and I will not judge anyone based on their place of birth. Your fellow Nigerians can be equally good or bad to you as any other person from some remote part of the world.

Africans should reject Islam. This religion is full of barbaric Arabic traditions that have nothing to do with our African heritage.

All of them failed woefully, and they will continue to fail.

Like we don't have millions living in poverty in America? Do you know how many Americans are living on food stamps, in debt and no homes? I do believe you understand that the term 'poverty' is subjective?

Appleyard:See who is talking about poverty in America ?. Mr cosmic order. You sure look like you will know more about poverty. Lol.

I will disagree with you with regard to the bolded. Russian men aren't dying of alcohol because life is tough in Russia. Rather, alcoholism is a way of life among many folks in Russia, just as gangsterism and going to prison is a way of life amongst many folks in the US. Or would you also say that life is tough in America because millions of people are in debt, no homes, while an average of two or more persons are killed daily as result of drugs and gangster related vices? The whole thing is subjective, and one just can't use a fraction to gauge the whole.
Yes, in GDP terms, even California economic standing based on GDP ratio exceeds that of Russia. But using GDP ratio as the sole yardstick to determine the efficacy of a country's economy and standard of living, is a myopic and one-sided analysis. This much is the reason why the United Nations has stopped basing its ratings of nations economics solely on GDP ratio. The reason is that, GDP alone doesn't give a clear picture of a country's standard of living, what actually helps in deriving a country's standard of living is PPP. Purchasing Power Parity is the key.
For instance, a four-bedroom flat in California may cost $130,000, but the same four-bedrolm flat will cost a Russian citizen in Moscow just 70, 000 Rubles, which is far lesser in price parity and monetary value. Consumers prices including rents in the US is 90% higher than in Russia. Check statistics to confirm. That's why based on PPP, China economy has already surpassed that of the US.
And if even we are to go solely by GDP, what about debt ratio? In terms of GDP to debt ratio, the US economy is nowhere near credible, no thanks to the runaway debt ceiling that keeps growing like a python. The US, if not only, is among the few develop nations of the modern world, whose debt ratio is greater than its GDP. A lot of Americans don't even know it. Frankly, the US economy defies logic. But that's a topic for another day.
You people can hype Russia as much as you want due to your personal likes or dislikes but it does not change the fact that many Eastern European countries loathe Russia as much as Africans loathe their former colonizers.
Nobody is hyping Russia, my dear. No one is saying life in Russia is better than elsewhere, or that Russia is Holy. People love Russia because she is the only country that has successfully stood up against the US and its devastating war machine that has wrecked and still wrecking havoc on the earth--killed millions of people since 1948 till date. Russia has its problem with some of its immediate neighbors based on some nasty Soviet experience, but so do France and the UK vis their colonial past.
It wasn't Russia that has been overthrowing countless regimes and sabotaging 'enemies' economics since the 1950s. Russia didn't plan to make war with 7 countries within the space of five years, part of which has been fulfilled in Iraq (overt), Sudan (covertly), Libya, (overtly), and now Syria(work-in-progress derailed by the Russians).
I can't see any country Russia has turned to a failed state as we have now in Libya, or destroyed and unsettled as we have now in Iraq and in Syria. I am still looking for Russia's over 800 military bases worldwide, but Nostridamus told me I will have to wait till the year 4000.
It wasn't Russia that predicted that Nigeria will break up in 2015, and within the same time frame, radical islamic extremism started to make headlines across the north in an unprecedented level never seen before in the history of the country. And when Bokoharam emerges from the shadows, it wasn't Russia that refuses to sell weapons to Nigeria to help combat the threat. The US made sure we never got weapons, even from Israel who wanted to sell. It was understandable: they have to bring their 2015 prediction to fulfilment. But again, they failed, though the bloodbath continue till date. They did all they did just because the Federal Government of Goodluck Jonathan announced it would convert half of Nigeria's foreign reserve from Dollars into Chinese Yuan, and that was how CNN and the rest ensured his government (though corrupt) never had a positive view from that moment onward.
We see, dear sister, and we know.
And to make sure Nigeria slide into chaos even quicker, the US, upon request, refused to give Nigeria the trial vaccine they used in curing two American doctors that contacted ebola during the dreaded outbreak of the disease in Africa. But thanks be to God, we were able to tame the virus, and the shameless ediots even came down to Nigeria to sturdy how we were able to do it, after the virus decides to pay them a courtesy call.
And lastly, the US is the only developed nation that has been voted as the greatest threat to world peace in the modern Era. It wasn't Russia.
So when you see folks like us admiring and hailing the Bear, we do it because we all are fed up with the US warmongering machine and it's Satanic Foreign Policy controlled by Satanists. And we all sure wants to see an end of the United States of Abomination and the dismantling of its Nationalized American Terrorist Organization (NATO).
I swear by the hairs of my anus, that I, Appleyard of the 26th regiment Iskander Missile Division located in Warri, will NEVER see or taste DEATH till all the Prophecy of Alois Irlmaier is fulfilled concerning the Destruction of America. And if God will not bring devastating nuclear judgment as prophecied upon America, He will have to apologise to Sodom and Gomorrah.
But I know He will, for His words never fails.
God's speed to the fall of mystery Babylon.

My apologies, I will not address every single point in this write-up and I will neither defend the US nor Russia.
Just note that the countries that were NOT under the Soviet power after WWII are much better developed. Polish people, Ukrainians etc. and even Russians migrate to Germany, France, GB but almost nobody wants to live in Russia. From your African perspective, the US is the devil but people from the former Soviet bloc think the same about Russia. Even Eastern Germany up till this day is not as developed as Western Germany due to Russia's politics and influence.
|Re: Boss Putin Declares Victory In Syria by Appleyard(m): 1:34pm On Dec 20, 2017|
Yeah, dear sister, I must admit you have a point, and I think I did allude to that earlier. The Soviet Union, apart from its global play, was a disaster domestically, and the nation's that came from thence has every right and excuses to be wary of the Bear. There is no disputing that fact.
People migrate everywhere, just as millions of Nigeria are living in the UK, so also millions more are living back in the homeland. The same goes for Russia citizens.
Soviet policies greatly militant against the efficient growth of the nation(s) domestically, but if guage Russia's domestic development since the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1990 till date, you will agree with me the country has taking significant strides far better compared to Soviet times.
Be that as it may, Russia's present domestic problems and and cold ties with its neighbors is nothing compared to the brutality of US foreign policy and devastation of global peace. And that is what really concerns me.

Appleyard:you are absolutely correct, the US has interfered and intrude in the politics of sovereign nations since the aftermath of the second world war. comparative analysis between the USA and Russia indicates that the US are indeed a threat to global peace. following the end of the second world war the US has indirectly and directly carried out military operations in the Korean war 1950, the Vietnam war 1955, the Cuba missile crisis of 1962, the disposition of Noriega of panama 1990, the Jugoslav war of secession 1991, the golf war 1991, the Somali war 1993, the Afghanistan war 2001, the american invasion of Iraq 2004 and the American military operations in Syria 2014.

You are right on point, brother. But I would rather that you save your breath because, if you really want to start numbering US atrocities all over the globe, even the ancient wouldn't be enough to contain the whole of Amerika satanic interventions.
Pray tell, what is the US military doing in Niger right now? I know some misinformed folks would say is because of Bokoharam, but it's only the ignorant minds that would believe that. They are there to cause more distabilization. If the US wants to deal with Bokoharam, they would have done that long time ago. Chaos has always been part of the CIA strategy.
