    IT IS GOOD I like THE COLLABORATION b/w the U.S. and Nigeria thank you OGA BEEGEAGLE for sharing showing the extent of the naval collaboration between both countries. In recent days we have not heard anything about the U.S.S JARVIS transfer to the Nigerian Navy any news on that?
    i have always been a strong advocate of strong bilateral relationships between both Countries and recent events in Egypt are proving my words to be more prophetic@ $1b / year EGYPT is joining the league of NATIONS THAT RECEIVE AID FROM THE US only to become problematic.Egypt is being run by a quasi Military/ Civilian govt this makes America EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE/ and the loss of influence of a dependable ally in North Africa is even More troublesome.
    ERA OF PRAGMATISM PART 3
    The administration of G.E.J has finally decided that the way forward for the next two years is unprecedented public spending “Madam “went on record to state that in addition to the regular budget Nigeria needs $10b additional spending/ extra investment just to try to meets it’s infrastructural needs we are hoping and holding our breaths not for the Americans to come calling that is not what we are looking for nor do we need that we are hoping that the f.g. stays on that path that involves :
    1) public spending is crucial to Nigeria’s financial security because it actually is the birth of the diversification of the economy from oil
    2) We have talked till we have have grown hoarse about corruption in Nigeria and it is hypocritical to say it started with GEJ it did not and when GEORGE BUSH pardoned SCOTT LIDDY Nigeria rightly did not send protestations or representations to the U.S nor did they raise a whimper when Clinton pardoned a notorious swindler who fled to Switzerland.
    3) Allies do not . rebuke/ disagree in public they do that in private following the very public disagreement BETWEEN what SEC KERRY perceived to be H.R.V.concerning bama He could of picked up the phone and talked to his counterpart Minister Ashiru in private about U.S. concerns” it is better to feed a bear honey sometimes that to go toe toe ”
    4) Nigeria as a financially secure nation needs a secure and well ARMED highly professional armed forces these go hand in hand the penny pinching and miserly approach only feeds into the perception of our enemies who believe NIGERIA’S APPROACH TOWARDS PROCUREMENT is the fire brigade approach
    5) There were three articles in the WALL STREET journal about Nigeria on JULY 3RD 2013 i will go into detail about this at a later date.

    OGA Jimmy ‘hail to the chief!’ – Nice write up – you should be on the faculty staff of NDA Jaji or the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru or even the National War College!!. The WSJ about Nigeria on 03/07/2013 – anything to do with the NA’s new Directorate of Behavioural Analysis?
