NIGERIA at 54 as an INDEPENDENT NATION! On Saturday, 1st October, 1960, in the midst of Nigerian honest Nationalists, Alhaji Tafawa Belewa, the first Prime Minister of Nigeria, decked in his immaculate white regalia and with great applause, received the Instrument of Power from Princess Alexanra of Kent who was the representative of Her Royal Majesty, the Queen of United Kingdom of Great Britain. That Instrument of Power and Authority heralded Nigeria into the Committee of Nations as a free Independent Nation whose destiny was now in her own hands. Present in that unique occasion were 1. Dr Namdi Azikiwe: a Nationalist, who used his high intellect, eloquence and his pen to fight for Nigerian Independence. He didn't care for what position he would occupy so far Nigeria was free. 2. Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Sarduana of Sokoto: this was a humble man who had power in his hands as the Leader of the NPC|NCNC coalition but because of the love of his people, refused to move to the center as Prime Minister but rather ...
There are two very dangerous men, leaders of their respective countries, who are both thugs, cold blooded murderers, and ticking time bombs. Kim Jong-un of North Korea and Vladimir Putin of Russia. As psychopathic as they both are, it will be interesting how far they will go before the rest of the world stands up to their corruption and sheer madness. It is pretty pathetic that Europe has not screamed blue bloody murder and stood together in defiance and in solidarity against Putin, regardless of what it might cost them economically. Hats off to Cameron of Great Britain, but Germany is heard above everyone in their silence.shame on you! And you in the US Congress, quit blaming OBAMA for everything. This is not a Democrat vrs Republican issue..this is a humanitarian issue. Just for ONCE stand with your President.shame on you too!
The bizarre, North Korea loving Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist) have a new branch in Shropshire:
The tention in South China Sea between Philippines and China outgrew. But the South Korea, Japan, Great Britain, USA, and Vietnam are in support with the Philippines. & so does the North Korea and Russia are alongside with China. World War III I guess? Hope not.
Pmsl. David Cameron say's Great Britain is prepared for nuclear attacks from North Korea.Dave mate, we weren't prepared for snow at winter.
The Dallas Cowboyification of America: I'm convinced that Jerry Jones doesn't care if the Dallas Cowboys win or lose, or go to the Superbowl. He just wants people to like the Cowboys, to wear their blue and gray jerseys, and buy Cowboys stuff. The more the Cowboys fail, the more the sports junkies talk about it, and the more "Romo" jerseys Jones sells. Obama shares the Jerry Jones strategy. Obama doesn't want America to win, as long as everyone is "liking" us, and buying our (non-petroleum) products. This latest move by the Administration to give up control of ICAAN and the Internet to the "world community" is absolutely crazy. A community is a group that shares common values. But this "world" community contains the likes of Denmark and Great Britain on one hand, and Iran, Syria and North Korea on the other. Do you really think that this is a "community" worthy of regulating the Internet? What happens when the "world community" decides to tax Amazon or Google for "using" the Internet? What happens when th ...
This is interesting from Newt Gingrich: President Obama won a significant victory in the United Nations yesterday. President Putin found himself surprisingly isolated. I am often critical of President Obama and his foreign policy team but when he gets one right, he deserves recognition and the event deserves some notice. When the United Nations votes to repudiate Putin's takeover of Crimea -- and does so by a ten to one margin -- something good has happened. Votes in the United Nations General Assembly are expressions of sentiment. They are not legally binding. Only the Security Council -- in which Russia and China have vetoes, as do the United States, Great Britain, and France -- can pass a binding resolution. Nonetheless a decisive General Assembly vote is psychologically useful. Yesterday's vote in the General Assembly was so one-sided that I was startled. I can't remember the last time the United States had an almost ten-to-one vote for its position. The actual vote was 100 "Yes" to 11 "No" with 58 ab ...
US and Great Britain, what kind of guarantors are you? Why should India, North Korea and Iran take into account your opinion? In December 1994, Ukraine, giving up its nuclear weapons, signed an international memorandum with Russia, the United Kingdom and the USA. The said memorandum guarantees Ukraine sovereignty and safety. In February 2014, Ukraine faced brutal aggression from the country meant to guarantee its territorial integrity, namely Russia. In such a situation, the Ukrainian Parliament turned to the guarantors under the Budapest Memorandum asking them to secure the country’s territorial integrity. However, except for possible punitive sanctions against Russia, the guarantors do not seem to be going to help Ukraine because there’s not much to be gained by it. The people of Ukraine would like to ask Mr Obama and the US Senate, as well as Her Majesty Elizabeth II and the British Parliament, what kind of moral right have you to negotiate with India, North Korea and Iran (non-democratic as they a ...

JERUSALEM, Israel -- After four days of talks and three rounds of meetings, the P5+1 (the U.S., Russia, China, Great Britain, France and Germany), along with the European Union, struck an historic deal early Sunday morning in Geneva with the Islamic Republic of Iran. While the details of the agreement have not been released, here are the main points: . It allows Iran to enrich uranium up to 5 percent. . It requires Iran to stop expanding its enrichment capacity. . It further requires Iran to allow more IAEA inspections, especially to Iran's nuclear facilities at Natanz and Fordo. . In return, Iran would receive about $7 billion dollars' worth of sanctions relief. . The P5+1 agree to impose no new sanctions for six months. US, Iran Pleased U.S. President Barack Obama lauded the agreement: "Today that diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure, a future in which we can verify that Iran's nuclear program is peaceful and that it cannot build a nuclear weapon. While today's announc ...
The United States is an outlier when it comes to the scope of the abortion ''right''. The United States is one of approximately ten nations (of 195) that allow abortion after fourteen weeks of gestation. The others are: Canada, China, Great Britain, North Korea, the Netherlands, Singapore, Sweden, Western Australia, and Vietnam. When it comes to allowing abortion for any reason after viability, however, the United States is joined only by Canada, North Korea, and China.
Ever wonder why the USA is deadly serious in attacking Syria??? The USA is looking to re-boot the planet !!! By 2018, China will be bigger than the USA economically ... and that is unacceptable to the USA. Recently, China, Russia, Iran, North Korea have sided against the USA on the issue of Syria Re : an immediate attack because of alleged use of chemical weapons. Sounds familiar ??? Yup ... the USA played this song with Irag, when they used the issue of 'weapons of mass destruction' to violate the sovereignty of a the country Iraq. No big loss ... that ... BUT the weapons of mass destruction were NEVER found. What about LIBYA ... and EGYPT ? These sovereign nations were MAULED. What about the sudden spate of uprisings in various arab countries on the planet ... SIMULTANEOUSLY ??? What about the short lived internet inspired uprising in CHINA? FAILED OF COURSE. SO ... Syria happens to be the NEXT country in the agenda. The worst thing that could happen to the USA is that the MOMENTUM be delayed ... or bog ...

communist North Korea. The United States was undertaking the major military operation, he explained, to enforce a United Nations resolution calling for an end to hostilities, and to stem the spread of communism in Asia. In addition to ordering U.S. forces to Korea, Truman also deployed the U.S. 7th Fleet to Formosa (Taiwan) to guard against invasion by communist China and ordered an acceleration of military aid to French forces fighting communist guerrillas in Vietnam. At the Yalta Conference towards the end of World War II, the United States, the USSR, and Great Britain agreed to divide Korea into two separate occupation zones. The country was split along the 38th parallel, with Soviet forces occupying the northern zone and Americans stationed in the south. In 1947, the United States and Great Britain called for free elections throughout Korea, but the Soviets refused to comply. In May 1948 the Korean Democratic People's Republic--a communist state--was proclaimed in North Korea. In August, the democrati ...

In the news this week… • A Roman Catholic Pope resigns for the first time in over 600 years. • G20 global finance leaders gather in Moscow (and a meteor explodes in Russian skies — coincidence?) • Another person in Great Britain has contracted a potentially fatal SARS-like virus which the World Health Organization says was unknown in humans until a few months ago. • On Valentine’s Day, the Illinois Senate voted to approve a bill legalizing same-sex marriage, which would make it the 10th state in the nation, along with the District of Columbia, to change its laws regarding traditional marriage. • Rob Bell released a video trailer and tour dates for his new book.

The New York Times ran an article this morning on North Korea's Nuclear Program and the threat posed to the U.S. Here is aquote from that article: "North Korea has since declared that it would shun any talk on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, adding that it would not give up its nuclear weapons until “the denuclearization of the world is realized.” The U.S. is one of the few nations that continue to hoard nuclear weapons. The leaders revel in their ability to undermine U.N. Disarmament Sanctions utilizing the votes of just three nations to do so: Great Britain, Israel, and themselves. If the North Korean government really wishes for the denuclearization of all nations, then their wishes accord with those of the majority of the World's people. If North Korea disarmed themselves, they would fall under the radar as a world power, they would have no more say on America's denuclearization than does Papua New Guinea, Bhutan, or Sierra Leone. It seems to me (as it should to any thinking person), that if ...
I do not believe there would be no violence without guns. I don't think anyone really believes that. But it is interesting that there are civilized places in this world, most notably Great Britain, Japan and South Korea where they don't really have guns and.get this... they don't really have many gun-related deaths. They are not North Korea, they are not China, they are democracies with the elected governments and civil societies. Additionally, I am reading a lot about the Civil War these days and one of the major causes of the American Civil War was the *fear* on the part of the South that slavery would be ended. So, if we are to fear for the fate of the Republic, it is from gun owners freaking out for no *** reason, not from anything the president may or may not do.
Is Great Britain's statement that it is going to enter the Equadorean embassy so that it can arrest Julian Assange yet another indicator of the new colonialist (i.e., we can do anything we want to another country cuz we feel like it) attitudes of Great Britain and the U.S.? This quote is pertinent: “I think the Foreign Office have slightly overreached themselves here,” Britain’s former ambassador to Moscow, Tony Brenton, told the BBC. “If we live in a world where governments can arbitrarily revoke immunity and go into embassies then the life of our diplomats and their ability to conduct normal business in places like Moscow where I was and North Korea becomes close to impossible.”
The U.S. women face off against North Korea, who they've matched up against at the last four World Cups. But today's big draw will be the home team of Great Britain against the Brazilians, who are looking to win their first gold medal in Olympic history.

North Korea is in 6th position with 2 Gold Medals and 1 Bronze Medal, meanwhile host Great Britain is in 16th with 1 Silver and 1 Bronze.
North Korea has more medals than Great Britain. Long live supreme leader Kim Jong-un and his master race.
Great Gaffes!! Members of North Korea's women's Olympic soccer team walked off the field Wednesday when the flag of South Korea was mistakenly flashed on the big screen before their match against Colombia. North Korea regards its neighbor as a "puppet regime" of the West and the relationship between the two nations has become increasingly strained. 2012 Hockey: Apartheid song plays for South African players Last month, British field hockey authorities apologized to South Africa after an apartheid-era National Anthem played before an international game.

Mitt Romney sure made a spectacle of himself in Great Britain, read his idiotic remarks in The Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph and many other English and British newspapers he was mentioned to be worse than Sarah Palin. He even forgot the name of the the British PM (Ed Millibrand) and called him "the leader" OMG that is what the leader of North Korea is called (Supreme leader) obviously the foreign presses have had a field day. Michelle Obama on the other hand was praised for being there in support of the USA and showing no sign of political agenda.
English know how: first they run up the South Korean flag before North Korea's women's match. The team refuses to take the field. After that they can't even get their own country's players straight. They are fielding a Great Britain team this time around including five Welsh players---one of whom they listed as English. You can imagine how that went down in Wales. Meanwhile there is Mittens the Hollow Man who is the know-it-all on all things Olympic.
Question of the Decade Ladies, if, as a single woman, you were given the opportunity to become the 'First Lady' of North Korea, with all of its riches, would you have married Kim Jong Un.
