Beware of Self-destruction Ambazonians
One of the most effective tools the government of La Republique du Cameroun has always used against Ambazonians is the trap of self-destruction; Leading Ambazonians into situations where they destroy themselves in ignorance while the real enemy watches from a safe distance with amusement. It has always worked effectively since the 60s and it is very much at work again at this stage of the revolution. Ambazonians have to decide whether to focus on the real enemy or on the trap.
The current Ambazonia self-destruction strategy by La Republique du Cameroun consists of several facets, some of which we know even if we ignore and others we simply don’t know.
Pitching Ambazonians from the northern zone against those from the southern zone is an old game known to most Ambazonians even if we ignore sometimes and still fall victim to it. It has rocked us during this phase of the struggle from the time of the famous Consortium to the current leading factions. If this well known game is like an old disease we can’t get rid of, there are new ones in play at this moment and we can get rid of those ones.
Truth be spoken, the war AGAINST Ambazonia we talk about every day is actually just the war IN Ambazonia. The two are not the same. A war “against” implies advances and retreats across the two sides involved by opposing forces. A war “in” implies all action focusing on a particular territory by opposing forces. As long as we continue to accept it as a war in Ambazonia, we are bound straight for self-destruction. If we think the war is against Ambazonia as declared by the enemy himself, then offensives should not be focused only on Ambazonia soil. Offensives should go across into the enemy’s territory too. Since the option of dialogue has been completely eliminated and war left as the only option so be it. However, let the war be fought on all fronts. Even in the game of football, the most humiliating defeat is when a team succeeds to contain the opposing team in their half of the field, beating them until the game ends.
Prisoners of war are good bargain chips if only you have the right ones. There are some prisoners of war that are a complete waste of resources, not to talk of ridicule. La Republique du Cameroun has so far been excellent in using the bargain chips in their possession. They have taken Ambazonians captive from the heart of Ambazonia and kept them in the heart of La Republique du Cameroun, that’s strategic warfare. On the other hand, Ambazonians have taken Ambazonians captive from the heart of Ambazonia and kept them in Ambazonia, that’s self-destruction.
Spying is an integral part of modern warfare. The most valuable and effective spies are those from the enemy’s camp. La Republique du Cameroun has succeeded so well in this as well. Most of their spies are from Ambazonia. The end game is simple: If the spies are successful it is a big win for La Republique du Cameroun. If they are not successful and Ambazonians arrest, torture or kill them it is still a win for La Republique du Cameroun because, not only shall Ambazonians feel the guilt of killing one of theirs, the act will make friends and family resent Ambazonia Restoration Forces – hence, self-destruction.
Seeing how successful this game is going, La Republique du Cameroun is also making sure that, from Elokobi to Atanga Nji, all armed forces as well as administrative officers sent to operate in Ambazonia, are well-selected bought-over Ambazonians. This is to ensure that the self-destruction mechanism continues to work effectively. Reality checks of all casualties of war since the beginning of this war proves this bitter but true fact: Ambazonians are slowly but surely into self-destruction.
Ghost Towns, Civil Disobedience and boycotts hit Ambazonians hard and only scratched the enemy. Peaceful demonstrations earned Ambazonians indiscriminate shootings, killings, mass arrests and torture. Attacks on armed forces from La Republique du Cameroun earned Ambazonians whole villages burnt down and inhabitants sent fleeing into the bushes. If that is what self-defense means then I think a better term for it is “self attack.”
The way out of this path to self-destruction is simply to answer this question: Is it better to eliminate the trap or the trapper? Leaders of Ambazonia Restoration Forces know better than the answer to this question for sure. Smart up!
