Comment to: Ghana Needs To Take A Cue From China!!!
OFFICE OF THE ODIKRO.
a companion of the black star,
PS: This column will be my last for Ghana-web.
Goodbye, and thanks 4 the years!
Hello, the Great Emperor,
Please, do not go away! No one said this struggle was going to be easy! No one kicks a dead dog! The more you find yourself under attack, the more effective you are becoming! Keep on keeping on!
I like your analysis. Lenin once wrote "the dictatorship of the proletariat is justified, because the opposite is not freedom, but the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie"! Hence the one-party state. However, I also agree with Marx that you can have a revolutionary party in a multi-party environment. I think that even in a strictly proletarian order, several political parties representing working class tendencies can co-exist. That said, I find your analysis very interesting and can understand why you annoy people like Sarpong so much. But I wouldn't be bothered by that if I were you! They are everywhere.
If you read it from wikileaks, and thought a little bit about the level of "curiosity" you would have known that a sight like Ghanaweb is one of the most closely monitored. They know the IP address of every single single user!
I wrote the following at the beginning of the year, before the war in the Ivory Coast and Libya:
"On the much awaited news on Ghana from the wikileaks, the most important to date, will have to be the "West African Littoral directive" issued by the Secretary of State, Mrs Clinton. This is the one we should all be looking forward to its release!
So far, the revelations have unravelled what some are describing as a new window on US diplomacy in Africa. And what makes this even more alarming is the militarization of US diplomacy.
Thanks to Wikileaks, we now know that there is a secret order reportedly signed by Clinton, which "directed American diplomats to act as spies around the world against friends and enemies alike”, the revelation said a particular ‘directive’ covered the coastal countries of West Africa which includes Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Togo and Benin.
As Xcroc puts it, "US Embassies are actively engaged in spying on African countries and citizens, collecting:
-- Biographic and biometric data, including health, opinions
toward the US, training history, ethnicity (tribal and/or
clan), and language skills of key and emerging political,
military, intelligence, opposition, ethnic, religious, and
business leaders. Data should include email addresses,
telephone and fax numbers, fingerprints, facial images, DNA,
and iris scans. 09STATE37561" (-by Xcroc)
They are also interested in your passwords!
May God bless us all and protect us from our enemies, because we still love them! Just as we have been instructed to do in the Holy Book!"

I avail myself of this opportunity, to extend to you, on behalf of the Odikro, Nana Akyea Mensah II, the assurances of our highest consideration.
Forward Ever! Backwards Never!!!
