This is serious, indeed.
A few days ago, Osama bin Laden, the brain behind the 911 bombing in New York that put a huge dent in America's huge pride stated in no uncertain terms that he intended to release more devastation on six cities in America and in Europe.
We can pretend to act like, we are exempt, after all Europe and America are too far away from us, Africans. Okay, but this was the same person whose actions since 911 have brought pain and suffering (because of what happened afterwards) on thousands if not millions around the world. So like JF Hutton, when bin Laden speaks, we must listen.
The petrel question is what should we do, as Nigerians and Africans about it? Side with bin Laden as he wants us to or stay away from him, which matters little to him or join forces with the West to seek to annihilate him? King Solomon once said "if you want peace, prepare for war".Think seriously about it.
With kind regards,
