SOUTH AFRICAN MERCENARIES AND NIGERIA; CHAIRMAN OF STTEP, COLONEL EEBEN BARLOW, SPEAKS TO THE BEEGEAGLE’S BLOG COMMUNITY ON PERVASIVE FALSE NARRATIVES

BEEGEAGLE’S BLOG
14 May, 2015

Full text of Colonel Barlow’s statement reads as follows;

QUOTE

“A long time ago, I wrote that Nigeria was a prize. This prize is not only targeted by armed force but also by propaganda, disinformation,sanctions, coercive diplomacy and so forth.

You only need to look at who writes what to determine the agenda and what part they are playing in the attack on your country.

The NA men we were honoured to work with are good men who have a deep desire to end the conflict. What they did, they did with dedication and will.

However, their role was a small part in a larger NA effort. Do not be misled as the efforts of the NA/NAF were what turned the conflict around.

Insofar as STTEP is concerned, I only gave ONE interview and that was with SOREP. All other media reports were lifted off SOFREP and the journos then used their imagination to fill in whatever they wanted and were at pains to expose their agendas all the while intimating they interviewed me, which they didn’t.

Some have even tried to create the impression that they attended my talks at the Royal Danish Defence College and that I discussed STTEP in Nigeria. They didn’t attend my talks and I certainly did not divulge the NA’s campaign strategy, operational design or tactics.

All the negativity that is written is aimed at creating a poor perception of Nigeria and thereby hoping to erode the will of the populace. We all know that Nigeria has problems, as does South Africa. But show me a country that can claim they have no problems…even those whose media viciously attacks you have major problems. They just don’t want anyone to know…

I say again, only Africans can solve Africa’s problems.
