One of the main queries directed against my famous post about prisoners of war was whether Mr. President did declare war against Anglophones or against Anglophone “secessionnistes”. This question appears to be uncalled for, save to the extent that there is the ulteriour motive to taunt.

It is common knowledge that actions speak better than words. Granting that Mr. President specifically mentioned Anglophone “secessionnistes”, can the killings and destruction from the actual prosecution of the war, apparently with the tacit approval of Mr. President, be said to be collateral damage? This question appears to answer the question!

We have all heard Mr. President praise the army for their prosecuting the war with “restraint and professionalism”. In other words, the burning alive of persons in their sleep; the razing to the ground of entire villages; the destruction of foodstuffs; the massacre of fleeing civilians are all within the international humanitarian norms of war…
It therefore all means that all such victims are “secessionnistes”.

I cannot bring my mind to the remotest imagination that the innocent young girls in my orphanage that was attacked and riddled with bullets are “secessionnistes”. Nor that my compound and its occupiers that were attacked with a barrage of gunshots are! Who dares to hold to the contrary in the face of such direct, arrogant confessional and stupid statements by Mr. President’s representative in Meme Division that they (officials/officers) do burn down villages, and that they would continue so to do wherever and whenever necessary? So houses too are Anglophone “secessionnistes”?

To my mind (speaking for myself), what is going on on the ground is an “Anglophone War” even if Mr. President initially intended it should be otherwise. And his praising the army publicly for what they are doing on the ground appears to be conclusive evidence that Mr. President has departed from his initial design!

    You guys can play a game of words as you want, but that would not make any difference. Life is normal in both Buea and Bamenda towns, are these not Anglophones areas? The war is against Anglophones terrorist/secessionist and if you’re one, then the war is against you.
    Even Donald Trump try that game with Islamic terrorist and fail.

    Oh, so those Terrorist, ISIS and bandits for LRC are also, only stealing the land, resources, jobs, … of Ambazonian freedom fighters and Restorationist?
    Reality dose not exist in words but in the physical world, look into it and ever thing is there.

    We know very well that all our people are not suppose to fight, we are not expecting everyone to come forward, it is just human nature. We Ambazonians are smart because we know that and we take that in to consideration. We are not going to condemn or kill our people because they are behaving as if everything is alright. In the opposite we want them to behave exactly like that for it make things easier for our boys to do their thing.

    We do not judge success by people masses, those who will bring freedom to Ambazonian are the few warriors, fearless, courageous once that are already at the front line. We love our people so much that when we flush our the parasitic elements our of Ambazonia, we will give power in to their hands.

    When this Beti thug killed his first wife in cold blood, LRC ignoramuses thought it was a joke. Then he killed again so as to get access to a public latrine, once more the same LRC ignoramus thought his exploit was worthy of a man.
    People have over the years been making all types of excuses for Paul Biya and now he has become intransigent to the core. Ambazonians must make this man to pay for all he has put us through for this several years.

    The acknowledgement in honesty and bravado by Colonial SDO of Meme that they burned villages (with elderly citizens) in Ambazonia contrary to Atanga Nji’s claim over CRTV is sign that when God is about to punish evil people, he first makes them confused. He put the nail on their own coffin by that acknowledgement. Same too is the letter in Manyu, ordering people to leave their villages when the maniac of zoo-frenchCameroon declared war on Ambazonians, which was later withdrawn. The world is watching in silence but these things does not escape their notice
