It has always been a British way of life to divide the people mentally and invoke the gullible ones among them to wreak havoc. 70% of British former colonies are still suffering such Anglo-induced carnages unleashed upon her. Britain relaxes with minority view against the popular choices, hence the minority view serves No 10 Downing Street.
While the “little boy” dropped by America never interrupted the industrial growth in Japan and other Asian countries, the British Atomic Bomb dropped in Africa (Nigeria) did not only distort and destroy African socio-economic organic evolution, it went as far as incinerating over six million lives and still counting. Yet the world and her agencies still feign ignorant of British carnage called Nigeria.
While U.S feels sorry for the Manhattan Project that gave birth to “little boy”, Britain is bragging herself over the Lugardan Project that gave birth to the worst human disaster called “Nigeria”. United States did the noble thing by taking responsibility through her post-war policy implementation in Japan that brought up Japan from her knees; but in the case of British carnage (Nigeria), she keeps lobbying and promoting the continuation of her existence to the detriment of Biafrans.
Like the joint global attention and assistance given to Japan, so should the world in her entirety rise and monitor the peaceful disintegration of the contraption called Nigeria. America has been known for her moral and rational disposition when it comes to issues that has to do with sanctity of human lives. Now that there is a vicious circle of different agitation in various quarters that make up Nigeria, there is an urgent need to fix it by supporting its dismemberment in order to save and preserve lives.
U.S should take the lead to save the plunging of the contraption into another war by pushing for referendum. Allowing the people to do it in their own way could be disastrous to the entire African continent. Why I emphasis on US taking the lead is due to the lukewarm attitude of AU over an impending danger. I believe that when US takes the lead others will follow suit.
