Libya: The stalemate that the West fears Part II

The US has authorized the use of armed, unmanned Predator drones over Libya to give “precision capabilities,” which will not only cause more devastation of Libya but also create false hopes in the rebels even as the pro-Gaddafi forces stand their grounds in defence of their cause

President Mills is NO coward or sycophant

In every historical epoch, every country deserves the kind of government it gets. Ghanaians have President John Evans Atta Mills and his NDC government. That’s not as an accident of history, but the logical outcome of the exercise of democratic rights to choose leaders in the 16th year of the 4th Republic

Libya: What next after the stalemate?

As the ding-dong battle continues and there are clear signs of its grinding to a stalemate, the West and their internal collaborators in Libya (the Benghazi rebels) must be biting their fingers and looking for other means to disengage before the citizens in those Western countries turn the heat on their leaders

Check noise making in the country- EPA

The environmental protection agency should work hard to check noise making in the country. Noise making has become rampant these days in the country to the extent that most Ghanaians can not have their "peace of mind." Noise can be defined as sound of any kind (especially unintelligible or dissonant sound)

Libya: Why the Worst is coming from the West

From all indications, the UN Security Council’s Resolution 1973 has become an albatross with very nasty implications. Initially couched and perceived as a blessing—because it was meant to solve humanitarian problems arising from the rebellion against Gaddafi’s regime—the Resolution seems to be ushering in unpleasant developments

Rawlings Go, Rawlings Come: Ghana’s Woes

There is a gaping hole in the mechanisms we have for replacing one political leader with another because there is no credible institution or mechanism for grooming our future leaders. I have already expressed serious concerns about this lapse in our national life but want to repeat that cry here within the context of new developments that portend crisis and political instability

Is President Mills that bad?

From the manner in which the Rawlingses and their collaborators are sinking their teeth into President Mills, one will think that John Fiifi Evans Atta Mills is the devil incarnate in Ghanaian politics. What exactly will make the Rawlingses “hate” President Mills so much as to attempt doing the weirdest thing ever: to cut off their heads just because they have a headache?

Rawlings: An Angel Abroad and a Devil at Home?

When the African Union appointed him its High Representative to Somalia, many of us hailed his choice, thinking that having survived such difficult times in his own rule and knowing very well the harm that armed insurrections do to countries, he would learn useful lessons on his mission to guide his conduct

Libya: The Letter That Betrays Desperation

President Barack Obama of the US, Prime Minister David Cameron of the UK, and President Nicolas Sarkozy of France have written a joint letter to The Times of London, the International Herald Tribune and Le Figaro, vowing to keep up the pressure on Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, and pledging to maintain NATO military pressure on his forces

What do Ohene Kwapong and Baba Jamal Have in common?

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the two most serial losers in the history of Ghanaian politics. Incidentally, the two belong to the same cancerous contraption. The founder of the NDC, former President J.J. Rawlings saw in Baba Jamal some negative traits which would prevent him from setting foot on the land of Canaan, even though his two eyes would see it

When Rawlings Sees Ghosts…

Former President, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, has described the arrest of Cote d’Ivoire’s President Laurent Gbagbo on Monday as a repetition of the tragedy of DR Congo’s Patrice Lumumba in 1960. Commenting on the events surrounding Gbagbo’s arrest, Rawlings said, “Fifty years down the road, with Africa still groping for freedom and justice

The Cat in Nana Konadu’s Bag is Now Out

At long last, the cat that Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings has been hiding in her political bag is out. It is now up to Dr. Kwabena Adjei and his team to determine the particular way in which that cat will be killed or nurtured to grow into the monster that will eventually consume its own baby, the NDC

Libya: Who can satisfy a rebel?

The tired saying may be right after all: “Show me your friend, and I will tell you your character.” Even without weighing the long-term implications of the African Union delegation’s “Road Map for Peace,” the Libyan rebels have rejected the offer to end hostilities and use political solution as the compass to show a new direction for their country. I am not in the least surprised at this rejection
