Heheehehe grin grin grin

Portable reminds me of my life story
My dad preach that going to University was the greatest thing ever.

I always told him that things have changed
2020 is not 1980... Things don change
In 1980 going to University was considered the greatest thing ever
Some mumu parents still think like that today, wasting 500k just for one useless paper grin

Thank God I no listen to that man at all
Instead of Uni I went and hustled instead
11 years later I thank God for that decision
Back then my dad will say I'm useless
Because I refuse to get degree
Now that I have made money, he is the one boasting with my name at home.

With the funds I have now I can go to any university if I want grin grin

In this hard time I'm the one feeding my family and siblings that have masters and PhD grin grin

This life is truly funny...

Foreign Affairs / Re: Saudi Arabia's First Alcohol Store Has Opened In The Diplomatic Quarter by zikter(m): 9:59am On Apr 25
Chinjo2:


The bible never condemn drinking of alcohol. It only condemn drunkenness. St paul advised Timothy to take a little wine.
Secondly Jesus turned water into wine. Though it was not recorded if the wine was alcoholic or non alcoholic but common sense will tell you that what are usually served at ceremonies at that time were fermented grape juice which translates to alcohol.

You can choose not to drink because of personal reason but don't be enslave by what your pastor says about alcohol.
Professionally, once you say wine, it automatically implies presence of alcohol. Fruit wine or whatever does not really exist in the sense of it. They are supposed to be called fruit drinks

Between you and chief priest, I don't know who is more confused. Why call people fools when what you are displaying is more than foolery. His alleged offense is bailable and he was granted bail. Bobrisky was sentenced because he pleaded guilty, otherwise he would have been granted bail. Chief priest will go on trial for his offense and if found guilty, will be sentenced accordingly, if otherwise he will be discharged.

He is only being foolish by putting up public shows like this instead of staying low for his trial. What is the win he is celebrating here? His case is not murder afterall

bonechamberlain:

Israel is not the only country in the world, it is a rascal, lawless and anarchical behaviour for Israel to bomb a consulate. They have virtually broken all laws known to have kept the modern world far away from anarchy and strife.

it's time for the U.S to hands off and allow Israel be taught a lesson.

The major reason why the U.S have no choice than to assist Israel is to prevent Israel from using nukes and to have a democracy/reliable based in the middle east. Conventionally Israel would be levelled in less than a month fighting Iran, rather than them loosing they would take the nuclear route, hence the reason for the constant U.S interference.

Modified: One thing very common with Nigerians especially some so called commenters here on Naira land is hypocrisy and ignorance. Some people still believe that Russia is fighting Ukraine, or cannot defeat Ukraine. They don't understand international politics, war strategies and the actions and motives of certain international actors and situations.

To the Israeli issue, no country in the world has broken international Law uncountable number of times deliberately and overtly like Israel not even North Korea.

You speak against the lawless behaviour of Nigerian politicians but support the ultra lawless behaviour of Israel in the international system due to sentiments such as religion, God forbid!! I would be that type of person. The same people shout and complain about how Nigerians are gullible to religious ideas but support a government virtually promoting anarchy in the world due to same religiosity they complain about.

After watching a video where a former CIA personnel stated that Israel is neither Americas friend nor ally and how most wars America has been fighting especially in the middle east was orchestrated by the Israeli regime and it's allies and lobby groups in Washington. I was happy that Americans are waking up.

In 2006 Israel could not defeat Hezbollah backed by a sanctioned Iran in Lebanon, but some experts believe that Israel would defeat Iran conventionally without the interference of America.
This thin pain you very well. Sorry. But why will the generals be hiding in an embassy building to plan attacks against Israel? They made that building a command and control center, therefore it became a legitimate target. In any case, Iran says it will revenge. So don't over vex. Is not as if Iran who is sponsoring terrorist organizations in the middle east are saints.

I don't understand

Before or after the soldiers were killed?
They are talking about after the killing of the 16 soldiers. The soldiers came to the community for a meeting, gathered the people, and trouble started when they wanted to arrest the community leaders but the people resisted them.

The narration maybe true. I have seen this happened before in Gbeji community of Benue state when similar incident of killing soldiers during a communal clash. The soldiers came in the guise of peace meeting and gathered the people, without warning they opened fire and killed many.

Let equity, justice and sincerity be in place let's see if insecurity will not be stamped out. Injustice, corruption and insincerity has greatly demoralized those in the army that want to commit to fighting a good fight and a just cause.
Very true, some people wish the status quo to remain, it is where they make their billions. Insecurity will greatly improve once the abnormally are corrected

The Nigerian army cannot be behaving like 1999.

The act of killing our soldiers is very bad and the hoodlums should be dealt with but not in this fashion of killing innocent peope in their houses.

What happened to tactical investigations to fish out the group that carried out the killings.
Kai, the same modus operandi they used in Zaki-Biam(Gbeji town) in 2000s, they also gathered the people for a meeting and opened raw fire on them. Very crude in this age of top investigation methods

Then so be it. But if it was the core north the military will not be threatening like this cos most of their personnel are from that extraction. When I say north I mean the core north and definitely not north central. The military is not sincere in the fight against insecurity in this country, truth be told
Maybe or maybe not,One can't be definite about it. Attacks of this nature hardly occur there, I haven't known any myself. And yes, it maybe partly because of what you said, many of them are active in the military, therefore, maybe they don't need to mount such attacks on their own who are majority. Head or tail, such has not happened that I know of. The closest I can point to is the El zakzaky issue with the army then, if you can remember. Many were killed simply for obstructing COAS. But again, it was tilted towards the religious angle of the Sunni and Shite Muslim rivalry. It is therefore neither here or there.

Yes, corruption is a major issue. Many top goons in the military, both south and north are hugely benefitting from the chaotic situation. So it is true that they are not sincere. But it must be noted that, the gorilla and ideological warfare as being fought in the North is difficult to be defeated even by any sincerity standard. Ours is worse as we agreed on the point you made

But where was the Nigerian police?

How come the police weren't called upon first?

There's no reported case of external aggression, so why was the military the first to get there instead of the police?

Is the Nigerian military now trained to settle community issues? 

No one is asking these pertinent questions.

While we condemn these acts, this could have been avoided. 

Our military is now getting too involved in acts that are under the purview of the Nigerian police force. 
Very true, but the gross failure of NPF can't be overlooked as well

For innocent people to suffer means the military is not well trained. Truth be told our military are not well trained at all
Yes, what I emphasized. That is why I told the person who was saying the military should do what they could have done if this occured in the North. Many people are of the opinion that the military will keep quiet of this happened in the North, but it is never so. I can't recall the Delta scenario in North East or West but I witnessed it in North Central and the experience is not good. Instead of the army to use intelligence and fish out the culprits, they go on wild destruction of life and property. It is very unfortunate. But again, anything military operation anywhere in the world always affect innocent people no matter how trained the army is. Look at Gaza, when US and allies where in Iraq, Afghanistan etc. it is quite unfortunate but once the soldiers are out of their barracks in this way, it is unavoidable to affect innocent people

If bandit resides in bush does that not make clearing them all the more easier?
I don't understand your question very well. But in any case, we do hear that soldiers kill bandits and bandits kill soldiers. I think my point on bandits/terrorist and the similarities or otherwise of Delta/Zaki Biam example I made in relation to the message I quoted is clear enough. You can read it again. Making it easy to clear bandits/terrorist in the bush or otherwise is a different topic.

But again, the scale of Military operations going on in the North, if you must be sincere can't be compared to anywhere in Nigeria. Majority of the Bombs, fighter jets and artillery are concentrated there. So I don't understand when people say the military is not operating in the North. You are also free to pont it out to me where the military went on a peace keeping mission between warring communities in the North and where brutally murdered and nothing happened. I already gave one in Benue and the consequences of which I don't pray for any community. It is not pleasant as innocent people suffer brutality from the army

The military should treat this matter like it has been treating other issues of like nature in the north. No selective reaction to things
If they treat it the way they do in the North for such cases, it won't be nice o. I remember the Zaki-Biam attack where similar issue occured in North Central, many towns where sacked as far away from the incident place as possible. It wasn't funny. In the North East and west, what is happening is not similar to what just happened in Delta. The army is in a war with terrorists and bandits who reside in forests and bushes and not community, infact, the communities are constantly under attack by bandits and terrorists. The only similar case to Delta I know is the Benue example. But it is a cruel revenge by military, innocent people suffer for what they know nothing about

The way most of you talk is amusing. Have you been to the North you are talking about? Do you know how many bombs have been used and are still being used in the same north? By the way, can you mention a community in the North that has killed soldiers in this manner? Please, as hint, don't mention Bandits and terrorist, they are in bushes and forests and not communities. They fight with the military in a war. Again, these soldiers been deployed should strictly fish out the perpetrators and not deal with innocent people or give collective punishment

HarryGleb:
When will the army revenge over the killings of their colleagues in the north or are they afraid of northerners?
I don't think any community there has gang up to kill military personnel. The north there as you put it, is an active war zone between terrorists and bandits . They kill soldiers, and soldiers kill them too. They are not in a community but in forests and as a matter of fact, launch attacks on communities as well. So I don't think drawing parallel with what happened in Delta is wrong. Except if you have reports otherwise

It is because of hunger induced by poor governance that has coined the word smuggling for a legitimate business people have been doing for ages. Do you mean Nigerian agricultural products are not exported to other countries or what? For some people, this is their business and it wasn't termed smuggling ever since up untill these unfavorable policies. Infact, government was even encouraging agricultural export and banned import.

Instead of government to tackle the root causes, they are busy harassing people doing business.
