Liberia’s former President Charles Taylor is currently serving a 50-year sentence for war crimes in a prison in the British city of Durham. But is he using that as a base to interfere in the elections in his homeland next Tuesday? “If he was to come back today, I’d roll out the red carpet,” said Justin Luther Cassell, a 32-year-old man sitting outside the Pray for Peace Business Centre in Gbartala, central Liberia.
For many years, the Cartel of international fake news media has been purposefully marketing news stories designed to masked the main perpetrators of injustice in Liberia.
Let’s set the historical record straight! Liberian war victims did not get justice. Neither Taylor, nor Sirleaf, or their foot soldiers were prosecuted for the heinous crimes perpetrated against Liberians. From Liberia war victim’s perspective, the prosecution, and convention of Charles Taylor were a scheme designed to protect the fake news media “darling girl” Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. It is no secret that Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was the chief patron of the NPFL horror in Liberia. For those who differ, I challenge you to an intellectual debate!
Instead of supporting the implementation of the Liberia TRC recommendations as it was done in Sierra Leone, Tony Blair and Hillary Clinton illicitly used their powers and influence to deny Liberian war victims justice. The Taylor trial was the biggest travesty of justice in modern times. I am not suggesting that Tayor and Ellen’s NPFL did not commit heinous crimes. Off course, the NPFL committed some of the worst war crimes and crimes against humanity in modern African history. The NPFL was aided and abetted by some African leaders, including Blaise Compaore and other multinational corporations like Firestone and others. Why those leaders and the Multinational corporations which aided and abetted the NPFL terror in Liberia, and the sub-region were not arrested and charged with aiding and abetting the NPFL heartless crimes? Can anyone from the international and local fake news cartel answer my question?
The Taylor conviction was a grotesque charade engineered to masquerade in the image of justice on the international stage. Unfortunately, this disgusting insult to the intelligence of Liberian war victims has turned Taylor and other Liberian war criminals into a national Hero in Liberia. The case of General Prince Johnson, a notorious killer is widely celebrated by his kinsmen from Nimba county as a hero. What a disgrace in the face of justice? Where is justice? Liberian war victims alive and those deceased are still crying for justice!
President Trump’s shocking victory over Hilary Clinton was a divine intervention on behalf of Liberian victims and the people of Libya, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, etc. God, answered the prayers of the innocent souls of these people who have been killed as the result of Secretary and Senator Clinton’s hawkish and deceptive foreign policies. Some of us have been forced to live in exile for decades as the result of Hilary Clinton’s attempt to shield her “buddy,” Ellen Johnson Sirleaf from prosecution in Liberia. But, through the intervention of God, the table turned on November 6, 2016, when an unpolished political novice defeated the most powerful, well-funded and well organized political machine in the American political history. If Secretary Hilary Clinton had won and becomes the president of the most powerful country on mother earth, the dream of justice for Liberian war victims will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained.

Make no mistake, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and her cohorts which masterminded the destruction of our beloved country will not escape justice. President Trump, please hear our cry! We need your compassionate intervention!
Liberian war victims will demand the release and return of Taylor to Liberia in the custody of the proposed internationally backed special war crimes’ court on Liberia so that he and his boss; Sirleaf can have an opportunity to legally account for the destruction of Liberia. Off course, the ICC must compensate Taylor for the injustice that he has suffered over the last decades. Many sitting and past African leaders, including Multinationals like Fire Stone, aided and abetted Taylor, why they have not been prosecuted for aiding and abetting the horror in Liberia? Is it because Taylor was a political threat to their “darling girl” Ellen Johnson Sirleaf? Liberian war victims demand real justice and not geopolitical shenanigan!
