Governace in Guinea-The Civil Society Perspective!

Dear Colleagues,

I bring you greetings of peace.

I am a doctoral candidate of the University of Ibadan Nigeria West Africa. I am currently investigating the strength of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in consolidating peace in the fragile post conflict state of Guinea.

One appreciate the fact that the Republic of Guinea is a French colony and uses same as its official language.

I will appreciate discourse in this direction. Pertinent questions… Continue

Germany: a foreign policy based on peace?

Germany is a country of peace movements. In public opinion, peace is seen as a key value, more important even than democracy or individual freedom. In a recent Eurobarometer 69 survey, for example, 62% of the population responded in the affirmative that peace was the most important personal value for them, placing Germany at the top of the European list. Germany is also a country of contradictions. Does Germany want to be a mid-sized USA or a big Switzerland?  When it comes to defining…

This article is hereby republished for re-echoing of themes about machinations by the global elites (oligarchs-political-military-technocratic) in the world and my country. Their local puppets were able to install a coño kid, Noynoy Aquino, to power. What their current agenda should be our subject of continuing inquiry. The same elites already destroyed parts of New Zealand and Japan this year with the Tesla Earthquake Machine or TEM.

Libya - what should have been done? Part I - Prologue

It is a safe assumption that people in general neither like nor love war. They prefer peace, and major organizations such as the United Nations and the European Union state that their highest aim is world peace. There are distinguished prizes for peace, and peace people like M. K. Gandhi, Luther King Jr., Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela to name a few are revered by everyone. There is nothing similar for those who bomb, kill and rape.

In consequence all wars and security and…

World Development Report (WDR) 2011 - a breakthrough or not?

While the World Bank often produces benchmark writing, I have come to expect their contributions to mostly reflect their specific "business needs" as much as the reality out there. This report appears to be different - in a very positive way. Actually I am tempted to believe that this report is a breakthrough for the discourse among the big and established players in global security. Here is my take. I will be grateful for your views ...


The WDR 2011 points out that 9 out of…

Erle Frayne D. Argonza


Coño kid Noynoy Aquino is now president of the Philippines for almost a year. During the campaign period yet, I was already apprehensive of the handiwork of coño operators who were born with a ‘golden spoon’. They are those kinds who went to school with the purpose of displaying wealth and flashy cars, and were subjects of my scorn as a college student.


Just recently, P-Noy bought a sports car worth millions of pesos. Though…

Ivory Coast after Gbagbo: The Road to Peace and Security

Ibrahim Al-bakri Nyei


After intense international political and diplomatic pressures, followed by sustained military operations by his opponents, Ivory Coast’s long time political icon and defiant strongman, Laurent Gbagbo, has met an unfortunate political end. Gbagbo’s calculations probably ended up in the negative quadrant of the plane. He allowed himself to end a long history of so many years of…

It Would Be an Honor

Review of "Honor For Us: A Philosophical Analysis, Interpretation, and Defense" By William Lad Sessions, Continuum.

William Lad Sessions is a philosophy professor at Washington and Lee University in Virginia. I was once a philosophy student at the University of Virginia. Both schools have honor codes for their students. I experienced UVA's honor code as one of the most thrilling discoveries of my life. W&L's has inspired Sessions to write a book.

If Cairo Came to Kabul

Before Tahrir Square happened almost nobody predicted that President Hosni Mubarak would be forced out of office by a movement that didn't pick up a gun. Had President Barack Obama expected that outcome, he might have publicly backed Mubarak's departure before, rather than after, Mubarak stepped down.

Obama can be seen as overcompensating for that performance in Libya, but there he is placing faith in weapons. Anybody can do that. Egypt still has a long way to go on its path to a just…

Peace Journalism in Uganda: Government Threats, Advice for Peace Journalists

Government threats freeze Ugandan journalists

From website, The Daily Monitor, April 18: "Journalists are encamped at Kasangati Police Post, afraid of moving out to cover the running battles after one military officer told them that “shooting a journalist by mistake is not a crime,” according to our reporter on the scene, Mr Gerald Bareebe."

How should Ugandan journalists cover unrest, violence?
