Then, once the wall is built, the Africans–being true spaceship-building geniuses who are only poor because of evil white colonialism, can sort things out all by themselves and enjoy the full richness of their own genius without outside intervention. In addition, by all non blacks being completely cleansed from sub-Saharan Africa, the Africans would have no one else to blame but themselves if they fail to improve things on their own.

For a simple answer, Guinea clearly stands a better chance if success this time, given that the constitution left by the deceased president was shaped to his measure and will, and it would have simply guaranteed a continuation of the same neocolonial system. With the junta, Guinea has a chance not merely for peace, but to move as a success story in the direction of today’s Mali with well established code of governance.

In relation to the West, I am very mortified that we still call on or look up to the West for answer to the continent’s crisis. Today the West is painting Mugabe as the worst dictator to have come out of Africa not because of the pain and suffering of Black Zimbabweans but because of disagreement over the Lancaster Agreement (Land redistrubition), which Blair decided to pull out of.
God being my witness, I am not a Mugabe supporter and I think he no good to his own people in that he has failed the nation. On the other hand, I am a firm believer in alternance as long stay in power creates and encourage the culte of personality. But if Mugabe is such a hot news, what of Eyadema in Togo, what of Paul Biya in Cameroon, what of Obiang Nguema in Equato-Guinea, what of Hosni Mubarack in Egypt? and what of Sassou Nguesso in Congo? and the list goes on… Omar Bongo being another. Amongst these leaders, some are worse than Mugabe is or would ever be but what does the West do? Nothing so long as their interests are safeguarded and African ressources are exploited legally or illegally by Western businesses and multinationals.

The junta in putting Guinea on the success road needs to work toward instilling a national pride and value, as well as help create a vision toward a Guinea as it should be.
Well, let’s hope that Guinea and its people are waking up to a new & happier era

I am worried about Guinea. I don’t like the way Capt. Dadis Camara talks to the Guinean people on Television.He threatens them the real Military way.

I hope and pray that Guinea will join the other African countries that have held democratic elections and will one day enjoy a Government that they voted for.
