Democracy is the greatest threat to world peace

Written by Benjamin Obiajulu Aduba, Boston, Massachusetts.
~The SUN, Nigeria.

The first half of the 21st century is turning out to be decades full of fear around the globe including the developed nations, the emerging countries, and the undeveloped areas of our earth. One can argue forcefully and convincingly that these fears are directly linked by the decision of USA-led Western Countries to enthrone what has been called Western Democracy in countries far and wide and to do so by the doctrine of "Regime Change."
Former USA president George Bush II introduced the practice by the invasion of Afghanistan on October 7, 2001 in the pursuit of 9/11 bombers followed by the invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003 "to establish democracy in the Middle East".

Since that first blunder further regime changes had followed such as Libya . Nigeria came along afterwards although without military efforts and it is just a matter of time when the regime in Syria would be toppled by the western countries by force to establish democracy.
Various Arab Spring uprisings in Tunisia , Egypt , and other countries are all traceable to this March 20, 2003 Iraq invasion, and occupation.

Each of these wars and invasions was instigated by strong men (usually men) who rule their country with strong hands AND who stood up against any dictations by US or her allied Western Countries. The process begins with accusations of corruption, longevity, lack of freedom as defined by the West; the accusations are followed by economic sanctions that create discontent and woes in the target countries, which in turn create enemies of the regime. The regime tightens its stranglehold on the population and more tightly on its enemies. As both sides become hardened, US and the West provide economic resources to the regime's enemies and when necessary weapons if civil war looms. After freezing of the assets of the target regime coupled with the already biting sanctions the regime looks weak and unstable; the country is labeled a "failed country" and the need for "Regime Change" is advanced.

It will not take a long time to find an excuse for invading or supporting the invasion by the opponents of the regime. After months and years of fighting the regime is toppled and usually the head of the disavowed, "the dictator," is beheaded or killed in some ghastly ways and chaos begins to reign in the country. In short order we learn that the new puppet regime installed is even less capable than the "dethroned strong man." All the evils that were formerly traced to the strong man are now vested on the new regime: ethnicism, tribalism, corruption, lack of services to the populace, insecurity arising from the war against the deposed former leaders and other new ones created by the new regime. The country is engulfed by large movement of people. The refugees created by the old regime tries to return and new fearful people try to get out of the way.

This movement of a large number of people spills over to their neighbors creating havoc along the way. The human tragedy is duly covered by the press and becomes subject of newspapers, radio stations and TV editorials with blame most often place on the defunct regime. US assistance is promoted and it benevolence becomes the new standard. Within US and Western countries a one sided debate is held between those who want more help to the target country and those who want less; between those who want tougher actions and those who argue that US should not be the policeman of the world. But there is never a discussion of weather the invasion was called for; never any discussion on if the goal of the enthronement of democracy was accomplished or not.

What is not in doubt is that with each destabilization the world is less safe for everybody including the West, Middle East, Africa and others. The fear and hatred between the religious groups are acerbated as each religious group sees itself as under attack by the other. Broad brushes are used to paint each side: Muslims are killing Christians one side will proclaim; Christians are killing Muslims the other side would counter, or to avoid religious sentiments some would phrase the war as "a clash of civilizations." The more benevolent politicians would call it "Radical Islam or Radical Christianity (although this is less often heard). But when one dissects the sample one notices that radical Islam is exactly the same thing as radical Christianity.

No difference.

What has been accomplished with the doctrine of "Regime Change?"
  1. There is fear engulfing Paris and all of France, US, EU and all the countries in between. Going to sports event is now the same as trying to fly, One is searched (almost strip searched) because the enemy could be you.
  2. Massive refugee problem in Europe and everywhere else. The event in France this week could put pressure on Europeans to stop accepting any refugees and forcing them back. Should this happen the fight would be intensified with untold number deaths.
  3. More fighting will bring more anger against the regime and against the West. Intensified fighting had already brought Russia into the war. The uglier the war gets the more likely it is that the West could find itself in direct war with Russia . It is a condition devoutly not to be wished for. mankind is unlikely to survive such an encounter.
  4. Effort to change the Sudan regime resulted in the creation of South Sudan . Regime change in Nigeria is creating the demand for Biafra . The change in Iraq is creating a new state (Kurds) made up of parts of Iraqi and parts of Turkey and possibly also a Shite Iraq and a Sunni Iraq. Yemen may break up into many ethnic units.
Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

One thing that has not happened so far after 15 years of war is no democratic state has been created, at least not the type of democracy that Mr. George W. Bush had in mind.

So what is the lesson?

  1. The lesson is that Western Democracy is a construct. (NOUN an idea or theory containing various conceptual elements, typically one considered to be subjective and not based on empirical evidence: Oxford Dictionaries) that works perfectly in the West. It should be left to countries that want it to copy it and use it. But it shall not be imposed on all countries especially those who do not want it.
  2. There are other forms of government that are indigenous in other areas and those forms of government should be allowed if it is how a people or country fashioned out their governance.
  3. The emergence of strong rulers may not always be a bad thing and if one comes to be in a country, the citizens would be allowed to change their regimes as they see fit. The way of governance should not be one size fits all.
  4. The destabilization of large populations is an ill wind that does nobody any good. Perhaps God knows why He did not create one huge nation instead he crafted villages. The evolution of super powers may not be what the world needs or wants.
He that hath ears to hear let him hear it (Mathew 11: 15 KJV)

I am an Igbo, I was born an Igbo, I live the life of an Igbo, I come from Igbo, I speak Igbo, I like to be Igbo, I like to dress in Igbo, I eat Igbo food, my heritage, culture and tradition is Igbo, my parents are Igbo.

Am sorry I cannot help it if you hate my lineage. Am sorry I cannot help it if you detest Igbo, am sorry I cannot help it if you hate me because am Igbo. Igbo is who I am, my name is Igbo and I must die an Igbo.

You see Igbo as a threat, why? You call Igbo rapist, criminals, ritualist, prostitutes, kidnappers. You attribute all negative vices to represent Igbo? Why do you do that? You do because you feel threatened that Igbo might outrun the rest of the tribes. Why do you hate Igbo and despise us? You do that because we are creative, enlightened, hardworking, industrious, genius, intelligent, smart, rich, beautiful and amazing. But its difficult for you to admit it because you feel jealous of my race.

Igbo do not own politics, Igbo do not control the economy neither do we control the natural resources and the common wealth of the nation. You do, we don't and yet, despite the fact that you own everything, we still remain one indispensable race that has outshined the other race in all ramifications.

You fear us because you want to exterminate and annihilate our race, you deny us many things and yet we are stronger, richer and mightier. You fear us because we are everywhere. You fear us because no matter how rural a place might be, when Igbo steps in, they turn it into a Paradise. We have our own resources, which lies in resourcefulness, we do not bother you and your control over the polity, but yet when we cough you and the other race begin to shiver.

Am proud being an Igbo, am proud of my heritage and culture. Igbo means high class, Igbo means independence, Igbo means hard work and strength, Igbo means riches, Igbo means resourcefulness, Igbo means self belonging, Igbo means self esteem, Igbo means pride, Igbo means swag.

In response to Alaba Ajibola, the Babcock Lecturer Hate Speech against Igbos.


In Igboland women live apart from their husbands and neither cook for them nor enter their husband's quarters when they are in their period. They are seen as unclean. Even up till today such practice is still applicable in some parts of Igboland especially by the traditionalists. Before a woman can enter the palace of Obi of Onitsha, she will be asked if she is in her period, if yes, she will be asked to stay out.

Leviticus 15: 19-20
When a woman has her monthly period, she remains unclean, anyone who touches her or anything she has sat on becomes unclean.

An Igbo man's ancestral heritage, called “Ana Obi” is not sellable, elders will not permit this. If this is somehow done due to the influence of the West the person is considered a fool and is ostracized by the community.

1 Kings 21:3
I inherited this vineyard from my ancestors, and the Lord forbid that I should sell it, said Naboth.

Igbos have practiced the taking of a late brother's wife into marriage after she had been widowed until the white men came. Now it is rarely done but except in very rural villages.

Deuteronomy 25:5
A widow of a dead man is not to be married outside the family; it is the duty of the dead man's brother to marry her.

In Igboland, there is a unique form of apprenticeship in which either a male family member or a community member will spend six (6) years (usually in their teens to their adulthood) working for another family. And on the seventh year, the head of the host household, who is usually the older man who brought the apprentice into his household, will establish (Igbo: idu uno) the apprentice
by either setting up a business for him or giving money or tools by which to make a living.

Exodus 21:2
If you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall serve you for six years. In the seventh year he is to be set free without having to pay you anything.

In Igboland , the yam is very important as it is their staple crop. There are celebrations such as the New yam festival (Igbo: Iri Ji) which are held for the harvesting of the yam. New Yam festival (Igbo: Iri ji) is celebrated annually to secure a good harvest of the staple crop. In the olden days it is an abomination for one to eat a new harvest before the festival. It's a tradition that you give the gods of the land first as a thanksgiving.

Deuteronomy 16:9
Count 7 weeks from the time that you begin to harvest the crops, and celebrate the harvest festival to honor the lord your God, by bringing him a freewill offering in proportion to the blessing he has given you. Celebrate in the Lord's presence together with your children, servants, foreigners. Be sure that you obey my command, said the Lord.

In Igboland it's a tradition that the male children are circumcised on the 8th day. This tradition is still practiced till date.

Leviticus 12:3
On the eighth day, the child shall be circumcised.

In Igboland, there is a practice known as "ile omugwo ". After a woman has given birth to a child, a very close and experienced relative of hers, in most cases her mother is required by tradition to come spend time with her and her husband. During which she is to do all the work of the wife, while the new mom's only assignment to the baby will be to breastfeed. This goes on for a month or more. In the Igbo old tradition, at this time, the new mom lives apart from her husband, would not cook or enter his quarters.

Leviticus 12:1-4
For seven days after a woman gives birth, she is ritually unclean as she is during her monthly period. It will be 33 days until she is ritually clean from the loss of blood; she is not to touch anything that is holy.


The Igbo tribe is in a serious problem and danger of extinction for the following reasons:

50% of Igbos are born outside Igbo land. Meaning that those children are not likely to live and work in Igbo land and cannot speak Igbo language but foreign language (Yoruba, Hausa, French, English).

40% of Igbos girls between the age of 25 & 45 are single with no hope of marriage because 35% of Igbo boys live overseas and they have all married white ladies.

75% of Igbo youths leave Igbo land every year in search of opportunities in Yoruba, Hausa land or overseas.

85 % of Igbos have family houses and own investments outside Igbo land. They strongly believe in one Nigeria but failed to know that NO Yoruba or Hausa man has a family house or investment in Igbo land.

Igbos are the only people who believe that living outside their land is an achievement.

Igbos are the only tribe that celebrate their tradition outside their land e.g. Eze Ndi Igbo, Igbo Village in America and this is because they have family homes in foreign lands.

Igbos have failed to know that the children you have outside Igbo land especially overseas will never think of living in Igbo land. So what happens to the properties you are building for them when you are gone?

Igbos are the only tribe who see their land as a place to visit or a tourist site than a place to work and live.

Igbos are the only tribe who instead of promoting and appreciating their culture through movies and documentaries they have sought to ridicule it by portraying rituals, killings, wickedness, love for money and other social vices which were not originally inherent in our culture thereby cursing more harm than actually promoting their culture.

Igbos are the only people who without hesitation believe their history and description when it is told or written by an enemy or a foreigner. E.g. that you do not love yourselves or that you love money.

Igbos are the ONLY largest tribe on earth who fought for their independence and failed to achieve their freedom after 40 years.

Igbos are the only tribe who fails to honour their brave heroes and heroines especially the innocent children starved to death during the Biafran war.

Igbos are the only tribe who embraced their enemy after a bloody civil war and subsequently become slaves.

Igbos do not find it necessary to teach their own version of history to their children.

Igbos fight for marginalisation in Nigeria but has no collective strength or teeth to bite.

Igbos how long are you going to fight for your relevance in Nigeria?

How long are you going to fight for a functional airport, rail networks and other structural establishments that underpin sustainable development?

How long are you prepared to wait for your enemy to guide you to your destiny?

Oh Igbos!
Where are your leaders?

Unfortunately, none of them live and work in Igbo land. If you wish to save the future of your children, your identity, your generation and your race then you need freedom and that freedom is Biafra.

The Igbo: We die for causes, not for personalities

Written by Emeka Maduewesi

~on fb. 28th September, 2016.

The Igbo will never die for anyone. We will not even riot for anyone. But the Igbo will die for any cause they believe in because the Igbo have a true sense of justice and a determination to obtain it.

The Igbo will not riot because one of their own lost an election. Operation Wetie was the Western response to a massively rigged 1965 election. The Yoruba doused fellow Yorubas in petrol and burnt them alife. Properties were burnt with occupants. The Igbo will never do this.

In 1983, the Yoruba went on a rampage again over the massive rigging by NPN. Lifes were lost and properties destroyed. The riots were over personalities.

Contrast that with Anambra State where Chief Emeka Ojukwu was rigged out by his own NPN, who also rigged out Chief Jim Nwobodo. The Igbo did not protest because the goat's head is still in the goat's bag.

In the North, ba muso was the battle cry when Sultan Dasuki was imposed on the Sokoto Caliphate. The riot and protest lasted for days and crippled economic activities.

The Igbo will riot over issues and causes. The Aba Women Riot was over Tax. The Enugu coal mine riot was about conditions of service. The Ekumeku Uprising was over British colonialization.

Those of "Ekumeku" ancestry - Umu Eze Chima and Umu Nri - were at the forefront of the struggles for Nigerian independence, with people like Dr. A A Nwafor Orizu and Chief Osita Agwuna serving prison terms. Any struggles the parents could not conclude is continued by the children by other means.

The Biafran war was a response to the genocide. The war in fact was brought upon us. The battlefield was Eastern Region. The war ended in 1970 but the issues and causes were not resolved. That is where we are today.

The Igbo will also jointly rise to fight evil in their midst. They did it in Onitsha in the 1980's, Owerri in the 90's, and with Bakkassi in the 2000.

The Igbo will not die for any man. But the Igbo will stand by any man who symbolizes their cause and their pursuit of justice. Even if the man dies, the struggle continues, and like the Ekumeku warriors, the children will pick up the baton from their parents.

This is the Igbo I know, the Igbo I am, and the Igbo we are. This is my story. Feel free to tell yours.


"My boy, may you live to your full potential, ascend to a dizzy height as is possible for anyone of your political description in your era to rise. May you be acknowledged world-wide as you rise as an eagle atop trees, float among the clouds, preside over the affairs of fellow men.... as leaders of all countries pour into Nigeria to breathe into her ear.

But then, Chuba, if it is not the tradition of our people that elders are roundly insulted by young men of the world, as you have unjustly done to me, may your reign come to an abrupt and shattering close. As you look ahead, Chuba, as you see the horizon, dedicating a great marble palace that is the envy of the world, toasted by the most powerful men in the land, may the great big hand snatch it away from you. Just as you look forward to hosting the world’s most powerful leader and shaking his hands, as you begin to smell the recognition and leadership of the Igbo people, may the crown fall off your head and your political head fall off your shoulders.

None of my words will come to pass, Chuba, until you have risen to the very height of your power and glory and health, but then you will be hounded and humiliated and disgraced out of office, your credibility and your name in tatters forever...”
