I really feel sorry for people of Guinea that at this stage,are still under occupation. People may call Captain Dadis Camara dangerous, but the reality is for a Country like Guinea needs leaders like Camara who are patriotic and fear no one.

France has historically been involved in destabilizing their former colonies by arranging assassinations of Patriotic leaders examples include Thomas Sankara and most recently Dadis Camara survived an assination attempt organized by France.

Africa needs people like Dadis Camara, Robert Mugabe and leader of libya to succeed because we can not remain puppets of the west. As an African,when you go to Europe, you will not be allowed freedom to participate in anything even work if you dont have immigration documents, yet these Europeans want to control africa and tell us who should rule us.

From the perspective of being a former middle ranking military myself, I despise the actions taken by General Konate by colluding with France, America and Burkina Faso denying the Captain a chance to return to Guinea.

There were elements within the Guinean Junta who collaborated with Western Intelligence to tarnish the immage of Captain by carring out the atrocities of the stadium and that followed by an assissination bid so all this was prearranged and I know the modus operandi of the French Secret Services.

Captain Camara had a big vision for Guinea to get rid of rampant corruption,organized crime, restructure the Defence forces and to create Guinea as a true sovereign state and free from the AID given by france.

The plan to keep Dadis out of Guinea will work for a short period of time, but I'm sure therei s likely going to be another coup so Camara must be allowed to go home and participate in the transition as he has influence in the Defence forces and can unite the defence forces, but as I write already there cracks in the rank and files of the defence forces and General Konate is been viewed as a traitor to most officers loyal to Captain Camara and he should be surprived one day to find an ambush waiting for him

FRANCE is not good for GUINEA ,Or AFRICA as a hole.
the west always killing the strong people in AFRICA.

the belgie killed PATRICH LUMOBA, calling him ditetal in CONGO, but after 50years the said they are regret. but it still continuel , FRANCE killed THOMOS SHAKARA, ext.all this war in AFRICA is because of the propaganda from the western countries.

after CONTE death, FRANCE was trying to have his inpart in GUINEA , but DADDIS CAMARA block than since than they begin to hit him, because he don't give out our damonds and things.
but GOD is great.

I wonder which Army you served under and where. You seemed to be someone who is deluding himself by saying that we need people like Mugabe and Daddis in Africa. You must be one of those who profiteer with the problems these Dictators create. Shame!!!

Simon Ahmed. How dare you say Africa needs Dictators like Mugabe and Camara. These people are murderers who divide the wealth from the people. Where is your evidence France is behind this. From what I have seen in the media Camara was attacked by a GUINEAN who was going to be pinned for MURDERS of Camaras regime. What is wrong with you. The people of Guinea have suffered enough. Camara is corrupt as all hell, he was giving away gold as ''gifts''. As far as I can see it, Camara was a rather non-intelligent puppet for the people who do the stealing. This is known as a ''smokescreen''. Corruption is rife in Guinea and they people need the west to help as watchdogs until stability is made. Of course the Guineans have to guard their mineral reserves and be wary of some countries. But Guinea needs to put in the hard yards before it is like Mali, who are benifiting from anti-corruption.
Man they must do some serious brainwashing in the military you are in...wake up buddy.

Ahmed, you are out of mind to suggest dictators to stay in powers. Daddis and all these dictators deserve to die, imean not to die with a single shot but the same way that Doe in Libaria died. Cut them by piece. Ahmed am sure you are an ignorant.

(All guinean don't need Dadis any more, if he love his life, it is better for him to live out of Guinea then he will go to justice soon.
Gadafi is not trusteble at all. All Guinean need Gadafi to take his hand on Guinea for ever. He kill his uncle to be come a leader, so who need his word! Gadafi and Dadis love ech other. that is why Dadis want to finish the population of Guinea, then he and Gadafi will take over the Country, but that is not going to happing at all.....
