According Quorra Digest Putin’s plan is not to start World War III by attacking a NATO country.
Such an attack would force America and all other NATO countries to go to war against Putin’s Russia. A risky war that would eventually cause Russia’s downfall, or lead to a nuclear war that nobody wants. Not even Putin.
Putin attacked Ukraine, because the country is not in NATO, and he knew that no military action from NATO would be taken. This would give him a free hand to take over the neighboring country.
Putin, however, underestimated the will of the Ukrainian people not to be overrun by the Russian neighbor. The Ukrainians, whose identity Putin refuses to admit, have shown love for their country since the beginning of this conflict.
They feel Ukrainian, not Russian. They want their country to remain independent and will fight to the death for it. Putin had also underestimated the love of Ukrainians for their identity.He will have to review his plans, because the longer the war goes on, the more difficult it will be for him to finance it, given the economic and financial sanctions currently imposed on Russia.
This reasoning by Quorra Digest reflects the situation Biafrans of South East Nigeria are facing today.Biafrans love the identity of Biafra and feel Biafran not Nigerian.
The differences with Ukraine are first; They are white, we are black and the civilized world are therefore not keen with Biafra.
Biafra has been defeated once in the 1966 to 1970 war and as a result of continued oppression by the State of Nigeria, the quest and agitation for Biafra resurfaced with a greater force that has surprised Nigeria. Nigeria continues to underestimate the love Biafrans have for Biafra. Biafrans don’t feel like Nigerians,and don’t want to be like Nigeria, we are Biafrans and love to remain so.
One key challenge of Biafra seems to be that some ethnicities have been rightly grafted into the new Nation of Biafra, whereas these ethnicities do not see them selves as Biafrans. Historically they are Biafrans and should be Biafrans but some of them loath the idea of freedom and the fact that mentally, and spiritually these ethnic peoples are Not ready to offer what Freedom demands. They are not willing, because they are comfortable as second fiddle members of Nigeria as configured by the British pre 1960. The result is a resistance to Biafra from these groups, that gives the Nigerian State a feeling and assurance that the evil they are involved in is good and that the Biafran and Oduduwa agitators are excessively demanding and even ambitious.
The Oduduwa Nation is quite clear, with common adhesive factors. They are speak one language, the Yoruba. Biafrans also have one clear binding language, Igbo language. The inclusion of Efiks, Ibibios, Kalagbaris,Nndonis, Ikwerres, Ijaws, is turning out to be the misnomer. It is the transportation of same incongruencies of Nigeria into Biafra. It has imported pathogenic influences into the struggle for Biafra so far.
The issues include that; These societies will wittle down and even destroy our quest for Biafra should a referendum be convened, in their territories too. Their roles since the incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu, has been salutary with no sacrificial face to it. They majorly think, that they are in a Win-Win situation. When Biafra comes they will claim participation and support inspite of their recalcitrance , if it fails they will remain with Nigeria happy and jolly. I see a strong possibility also that in Biafra they will make demands and if such demands as spurious as they could be are not met, they will start their own quest to break away from Biafra. These are clearly avoidable distractions,at this stage. Let them form their own agitation from Nigeria and when they succeed they will enjoy their freedom and value it more. Should they ever really subsequently desire to join Biafra, then, terms will be agreed.
In the Five States of the South East, we have seen killings of unimaginable dimensions, and new methods of destabilizing the zone through the use of Uknown Gun Men, UGM. UGM, comprises in the main, elements from the so called Repentant Terrorists, Nigerian Police, the DSS, deliberately deployed to Igbo land. They use them to commit havoc ,then brief the Governors that is was IPOB! These Governors believe them, and fear them knowing that Buhari and Fulanis are behind them, hence killings have continued in Igbo land unabated.
When Fulanis succeed with one move in Igbo land, they replicate same at a national level. The Kuje Prison break was tried first in Owerri months ago! Today EbubeAgu in Igbo land is full of paid mercinaries from Rivers and Niger Delta! Igbo land is their utmost fear and horror, hence the carnage in our land, with the active participation of our so called fellow Biafrans in our undoing.
The fight for Biafra today is essentially primed and driven by Ndigbo while others join to be able to lay claim to victory when it comes. Fulanis do not see them as hearty Biafrans and they are not.That is why Apostle Suleman from Auchi Area in Edo State, can release invectives and insults upon Igbo race and goes about Scott free. Sam Omatsheye from Warri area in Niger Delta, can pick up his pen and denigrate Igbos and Peter Obi, and his own life continues as usual. He sees the shame that abounds in his region, but he is preoccupied with writing to please his pay masters. The Choice of Peter Obi, an illustrious Igbo Son, for his puerile pen, could form the bed rock of his journalistic jump into the Biblical Red Sea. These men are not, have never been and cannot be Biafrans,in their remotest imaginations and dreams.It has been said, that if you convince a man to follow a cause against his will, he will continue to think the same way as before . These ethnicities are Nigerians and they like it there, just leave them there!
Of special exception is Delta State indigenes whose brother, father , and uncle Chukwuma Nzeogwu died with our many heroes in the Biafra war . Deltans are Igbos and they speak Igbo.Thousands of Asaba people were massacred by Murtala Mohammed after the Biafran 1966-1970 war. It was an equivalent of Adolf Hitlers gas chambers. It was worse than the Hutus and Tutsis debacle in Uganda. Yet the Asaba massacre of 1970 has been suppressed by the malefeasant Fulani State of Nigeria. Nigeria owes Asaba reparations like they owe Ndigbo of South East. Deltans who forget these and clamour for One Nigeria have missed their road like many greedy Igbos have done. I understand that there shall always be the poor in the land and the greedy traitors to any good cause as well, in the land.
There is absolutely no need therefore, for these other “Ochebey-Hey Groups” around us. They will become a pest and pain in our struggle. Give them Money to do an assignment they chop the money, when asked to account, they turn against you, and use shared strategies to fight back. Prof.Lumumba captured this well, when he declared that Corruption Fights Back,it indeed fights dirtiest in Nigeria! Corruption was the problem with Asari Dokubo whom Biafrans refer to as ” the Pig of the Niger Delta”. Nnamdi Kanu gave him Twenty Million Naira, when the exchage rate to the Dollar was N150 . He chopped the money and asked for more! Nnamdi refused and demanded him to account,Asari blew his senses out of control and went bananas against Biafra. Asari mark this, Biafra is not and will never be like Nigeria, there is accountability at every strata of that society. Crooks hate the idea of Biafra. Today Asari has become a miserable soul melted in the furnace of Fulani fire. He and his types are an unworthy and clueless violent distraction which we can avoid now as we draw near to the end of Nigeria as we know it. You do not need to be a Prophet to know, that Nigerias islamization is in it’s settled last phases…It includes the on-going gaging of the Press, while the Buhari feins ignorance. The aim is to blank out reports from Nigeria as the last regimen of mayhem is unleashed on Nigerians in the Southern Parts of Nigeria and elsewhere.
Buhari and Fulanis want to conquer and Islamize Nigeria First,then Apologize and Reconcile with the International Community later. In the same manner, Igbos should get Biafra First, and then, reintigrate other ethnicities later.
Persistence delivers desired victory. Biafrans through their persistence shall find the freedom they seek. Biafra has been attacked from several angles by the Nigerian State both from within and outside.
The current Governors of the South East of Nigeria are the Biggest Challenge facing Biafra Now. Next to them, are a good chunk of Igbo legislators. These persons must be studied and tracked and any link remotely or directly to killings in Igbo land should be decisively dealt with legally. A clean plan to contain them must be made now!
