    Little or no difference. They look the same to me. They are both well kitted. However, I’d pick the nigerians, better camo to suit the malian terrain.

    What an Irony, this is the Army someone claimed is poorly kitted and would be limited to Sentry duties. Maybe you should see this Gen Beeg. A fellow citizen quoting black belle people. http://allafrica.com/stories/201301200036.html

    Actions always speak louder than words.Has anyone observed that the Nigerians are wearing their ballistic helmets unlike the French? To the discerning mind, this is plus as they appear to be more aclimatized than the French, hence are more likely to thrive in such an environment – especially when ground operations get fully underway.

      And the deployed french men, are wearing tshirts….. I would advise our men,to start doing the same, and cover the back of their necks,with wet cloths…… And always wear their hats rather than helmets.

    Chyde, you can trust our upcountry media to use any plank in their battle against the regime of the ‘outsider’ Goodluck Jonathan, just so that his government is discredited. The only snag there is that the “Guardian UK” report was FALSE. But they would echo it regardless and seek no responses from official quarters because the damning stories have to be made to stick.

    Indeed, they quoted that story copiously – the E-in-C of one of the upcountry media was even quoted by that Ghanaian girl in an earlier article which predicted an escalation of the conflict(so true to type!).

    They have also gleefully carried a lot of damning reports lately – except the one by the New Zealander who toyed with the profane idea of disintegration, suggesting that southerners would not mind a breakup of the country to leave a Mali-type enclave upcountry. That is not what they like to hear.. “BREAKUP”, so uncharacteristically, the upcountry media did not carry that tirade by Gwynne Dyer for fear that the unlikely idea would gain currency.

    That is how selfish and crafty many of our journalists can be.

      It seems her employers the Guardian have serious beef with anything Nigerian.

      I don’t have a problem with the opposition pointing out deficiencies in our defence or foreign policy. That’s their job. It’s when critism is unfounded that I complain. Maybe the military should do a better PR job. So many things we discussion this blog are unknown to the general public…..that’s nobody’s fault apart from the FGN.

        Greeting my generals and fellow patriots, I trowey salute come una sides. Hmm Naija at it again.

        Loving all of this. Slowly but surely the rigth peopke are coming up.

        I guess the question that should be asked and answered is why is it that the west, their media and press spend so much time and energy just to make us look bad?

        Who is afraid or has more to lose cause of the emergence of a black power?

    Yeah, my Commander. Unfortunately, these chaps are anything but conscientious opposition activists. They selfishly choose their causes and battles.

    They all published that tirade by “Guardian UK”. But I have seen another article which is just as damning and they did not publish that one. Do you know why? Its writer was tactless enough to have canvassed the idea of a North-South split along the lines which suffice in Mali and went further to suggest that people in the South would not miss their compatriots on the other side.

    Now that idea is a very sensitive and unpopular one among their readers, so they feigned ignorance. They choose their wars and causes very carefully and all to serve their own selfish interests.

    They published that. Find out why they did not publish this – which touches on military and non-military facets of our national life and was damning to boot. But they did not publish it, unlike PM NEWS, because it canvassed the idea of disntegration. Not that they have suddenly become patriots or pro-government,
