Very few make the connections between the resources and comforts available in the US, and how many people in other countries were exploited to obtain them. It is up to those who know, to make others aware of this reality.
Thanks. What I find unbelievable is how people take it for granted.
Allow me to post something that will shock you even more. It should be a thread on its own, but I will just post a snippet for you. I just hope its not true as some people claim.
I hope that the above news is some New Year joke and not a violation of another nation's internal affairs.U.S. shortlists five to succeed Obasanjo
By Chinedu Offor, Correspondent, Washington
Washington has picked five Nigerians it believes could take over from President Olusegun Obasanjo even with Abuja giving mixed signals on the third term scheme.
The five have been investigated and cleared by the American authorities.
They are a former world bank official, a South East governor who has had running battles with Obasanjo – and is among a small group of governors resisting an extension of his rule.
They include a retired military officer from the Middle Belt, an outspoken former speaker of the House of Representatives and a serving minister who recently accused Senators of corruption.
State Department officials said they got involved because one of the reasons the supporters of Obasanjo gave for their call for an extension of his tenure is the lack of credible alternative to his leadership.
"This list is our humble contribution to the search for the next leaders of a vital ally like Nigeria", the officials said.
