By the way Gandoh, the west used Atomic weapons in Japan and not Nuclear, and this was a against an empire that had perpertrated gross crimes against humanity in china, Burma, Singapore and the Philipines. Rape Mutilation the use of slave labour and summary execution of civilians and military prisoners alike was common place.

I happen to be a Western citizen in Africa, what i find ironical is that Africans willfully destroy their own countries and start crying to the International community for help.Due to quite selfish and personal reasons. How can any sane and sober person even ask dadis to stay.
Then there will be War and u shall start begging for relief food for refugees, why not ask ur backward leaders do what is right now and avoid it all.
I like your comments you are good man my friend!

Alphan Conde ,CEDIYA TOURE and zanmare Doure are not good for the Guinean .
CNDD is the best in this GUINEA.

There was a war going on my dear, everybody was doing the same thing and the African as always was the victim in all this but you seem not to get it. If you can even describe Slavery as a none event in history then i have no time with you, I want a proper debate on how Africa can move forward and develop like every other continent. I'm not interested on who you are married to. This forum is for everybody to express their view and engage in a constructive debate no Africa and people like you want every one to think like you do. Go and read Matthew Blankson's comment on the 22nd December.
I've lived through the civil war in Sierraleone because i was born there ok.

Nigerian led Ecomog forces ended the civil war in Sierraleone not British troops. Yes Britain is helping with the reconstruction but they never took part in ending the war. ask your soldier boy mrs

I absolutely agree with you Gentleman, all politicians in Guinea are corrupt and have all served under the corrupt Conteh regime but we must not allow the culture of Military role for a long period of time unless if they are going to deliver a very good standard of living for the Guinean people, this means Good Roads, Electricity, Water and a Sewage system that can prevent all diseases in the country. If you look at the Gambia Yahyah Jameh came in as a soldier but he has done very well for the Gambian people than the civilian Government they had before. So it can work but we need the military to be very disciplined and stick to their promises of helping the people of Guinea.

I lived in Guines a long time ago and corruption by cops, soldiers and everyone else was rampant. It was quite often I saw people beat up robbed and worse. Twice when I went to work at night our car was shot at by soldiers weilding AK47s if it wasn't for our vehicles being armored I would be dead. So don't think everything was rosy before Daddis. There were even people killed by the soldiers at the military barracks in Conakry when they protested the government. This is when some of the current candidates were in power. Will Guinea be better off? Who knows I only pray it will be, because the citizens deserve better than they got in the past!!!!

Larry Bickel, you may have been on the ground in Guinea, when was this? because you seem to have little knowledge of everyday life there. I left Guinea 4 months ago and in the 12 months the Dadis has been in power nothing has changed for the guinean people, if anything things are worse. The armed soldiers strut the streets committing crimes such as theft and assault with total impunity and corruption remains rife. Dadis claims to have stopped the drugs trafficers and siezed their drugs, but where are the drugs now? have they been destroyed? I think not but I'm sure that if you searched Camp Alpha Yaya you would find a substantial quantity of narcotics there. The best thing for the Guinean people if for the soldiers to be recalled to barracks and disarmed and for the holding of democratic elections where the people can vote for the man of their choice without fear of reprisal or cohersion.

If the civilians can not understand one another they should give the military the chance to remain.
