The World View &  Philosophy

of

Jacob D. Masssaquoi,II

AKA Doctorroots

 The Future President of the Republic of Liberia

I am Jacob D. Masssaquoi,II, a member of the Dahn tribe, AKA Gio  from Zoe Geh District, Nimba County.  I survived   the horrific Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and convicted war criminal Charles Taylor’s   notorious National Patriotic Front of Liberia(NPFL)  barbaric  war in Liberia.   In early 2002, I escaped Liberia, sought and received political asylum in the United States and settled down on Staten Island, New York, home to more than ten thousand Liberians refugees who fled the horrors of  Hillary Clinton’s  buddy, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s  carnage  in Liberia.

In the spring of 2003, in partnership with psychologist Jack M. Saul, PhD, the Executive Director of the International Trauma Studies Program/REFUGE, Program for Survivors of Torture, we formed African Refuge, Inc. This was in response to the many needs of war victims from Africa, mainly Liberia and Sierra Leone  living on the North Shore of Staten Island.

In July 1990, during the height of the civil carnage in Liberia, I miraculously survived the infamous St. Peter’s Lutheran Church massacre that took the lives of about six hundred people and injured many others. I witnessed the execution of my older brother by the Government death squad and escaped, living under false identity in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia for several days. In October 1994, I survived an assassination attempt to my life by anti-democratic forces, leaving me with a shattered right leg and physically handicapped for over 10 years.

Despite  the many catastrophic events in my life, I have always kept a positive outlook. Since arriving in the United States, I have continued to volunteer for good causes, even under extreme circumstances. In 2004, while recovering from a reconstructive orthopedic surgery marked by excruciating pain, I served as a volunteer youth mentor for Joint Action for Community Services (JACS), a national volunteer organization engaged in helping graduates of Job Corp integrate into mainstream society.

While in Liberia, my work centered on human rights, HIV/AIDS, environmental awareness, promotion of volunteerism, and humanitarian assistance to children orphaned by the brutal civil war in Liberia. In February 1998, I co-founded Free Teens Liberia, Inc. a non-profit volunteer organization with the mission of promoting human rights and alleviating the plight of disadvantaged children, combat the spread of HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnancy as well as the incident of drugs and substance abuse among teenagers through abstinence based education. In August 2000, I served as the Country Representative of the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE).  I was responsible for the coordination of activities surrounding the United Nations International Year of Volunteers (IYV2001), and follow-up activities in Liberia. In November 2000, I successfully co-founded Call Management, Inc. a social entrepreneur venture engaged in the sales of computer hardware and accessories, internet telephone service and other communication technology solutions to support the work of both Free Teens, Inc. and IAVE.

What makes me do what I do is a  fundamental believe in God. I am convinced beyond all doubt that God permitted me to survive the upheavals in Liberia so that I can become an agent of change; representing the downtrodden masses through direct service and advocacy. Philosophically, I believe that every disappointment is an opportunity. I also believe that poverty is in the mind, but will is the driver of knowledge, wealth and prosperity. My strong religious and family upbringing helped to elevate my will. I believe that what others have accomplished, can be accomplished. I also believe that the  Almighty God, Jah is a just, upright, invisible universal father of all humanity,   He provided  all humankind  with equal abilities, one has to work for his or her own destiny. No one can let you down, but yourself!

Professionally, I am an organization development expert with over 25  years experience in developing and managing both  for profit and not for profit organizations in Liberia and the United States.  An Information Technology Business Analyst with over nine years  experience in the implementation of Agile Scrum Methodology, LOS System and  credit card application development and business process reengineering environment.

I am currently working on my doctorate in computer science with concentration in Cyber Security and Assurance at Capella University.  A 2009 graduate of the Executive Management Training Program at Columbia University Business School Not-for-Profit Executive Management Training Program. A 2007 graduate of  NYU Wagner School for Public Service Future Leaders Fellowship Program.  I hold a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) degree with concentration in Organization Psychology and Development and Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) with concentration in Human Resource Management from the American Intercontinental University (AIU), respectively.

A 1998 University of Liberia college dropout.  While  studying at the University of Liberia, I  majored in Physics  and minored in Mathematics. My vision was to become a nuclear physics. I am fascinated by Sir Isaac Newton’s Laws of motion and Albert Einstein’s relativity Theory.     A 1989 graduate of  Sanniquellie Central High School, 1986 graduate of Levi H. Martian Baptist Elementary and Junior High School in Sanniquellie City, Nimbe County, respectively.

Politically, I am a social conservative and cultural preservationist. I believe in Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr.’s, prophetic quote “ a man  without a knowledge of  his history is like a tree without a root.”  I  am an unapologetic pro-life crusader,  I believe that Abortion and contraceptives are instruments  of biological warfare against our beautiful sisters and daughters, irrespective of the race or creed.

I  also believe to be gay is a matter of choice and not by nature. I fundamentally oppose same sex marriage without any room for compromise.   I believe that education and healthcare are fundamental rights and not a privilege. On the question of the environment, I  believe that humankind have a moral, spiritual and  social responsible to the environment as commanded by the Almighty God, Jah! “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth,”(Genesis 1:28,KJV).

Philosophically, I fundamentally reject Charles  Darwin’s  unscientific conjecture law of evolution. I do not believe that humankind evolved, but rather  created by  the Almighty God Jah, as written in the Holy Scriptures. “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them,” (Gensis 1;27).

I  fundamentally oppose and reject  the pseudo unscientific philosophy of postmodernism, which rejects the universality of truth.  When we reject the universality of truth, than by what standards do we measure morality and international law, good governance, peace, and democracy.  With respect to family values and cultural preservation, by what standard do we grade our culture? By embracing these pseudo unscientific philosophies advanced by Godless idiots in our text books, we have equally embraced atheism while kicking out God from our textbooks. All in the name of democracy and human rights. By kicking out God from our textbooks, we invite Satan in our society, which comes with extreme evil in our society.

I believe that globalism is neo imperialism;  a new form of imperialism based on the exploitation of workers from  3rd world countries therefore,  I fundamentally oppose globalism. I unapologetically agree with Honorable Dr. Donald John Trump, the democratically elected 45th President of the great United States of America that “free trade is bad trade.” It is bad for America and bad for the world. America needs fair trading partners and not one-sided free trade deals that benefits the other side. I believe in fair trade and not free trade!

My interests are human rights, politics, education, leadership, environment, religion, roots and culture, physical science, and the arts. I am the founder of the New Liberia Movement with the mission to promote human rights, sustainable peace, reconciliation, and development,  through volunteer service. I believe that peace without justice is illusive  peace.

I am the  founder of the Rootical Foundation, Uprising Press and Organization for the Promotion of Friendship and Cooperation between Africa and  USA. I believe that government is the vehicle for   service to your country  and not a vehicle for the acquisition of wealth.  No Justice! No peace!

Everyone is a cheat until you are caught,  than suddenly everyone seems to hypocritically demonize you. Huma, you are an inspiration to many like myself who  believe  marriage means standing by your partner in both good and bad times. 

Your Support to Tony during this challenging times demonstrates true love. Moreover, what one  does with his /her free time has nothing to do with the multitude of problems facing the city of New York. The cowardice attacks on Comrade Anthony Weiner’s humanity is a distraction and a demonstration that many of his opponents are unfit to challenge him  on the  table of serious intellectual debate.  If  his Democratic opponents  feel he is unqualified because of  sending  scandalous text messages, let them  challenge Tony  to a debate but not through surrogate journalists.  We need people who are serious about addressing  the multitude of problems  facing New York city and not  political pundits.  Go! Tony Go!  

Fellow New Yonkers,  do not let the worthless 24 hours news media  define your humanity. Comrade Weiner  is an awesome man. I am inspired by his courage and tenacity to fight for what he believes and not cave in to television pundits!

Huma must remember  the story of Bill and Hillary Clinton in the early 1990s when the Republicans and Ultra-feminism  mounted unabated attacks against Hillary with  the explicit goal of destroying Bill’s presidency and political career,  but Hillary stood by Bill. Consequently, they survived and today, they are the most admired couples in the political sphere.

What I am trying to say here, Huma congratulations for standing  with Anthony.  He is a fighter and he will survive the test of time and become victorious.  “Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom”- General George Patton, Jr.

Go! Tony Go!

You have inspired many! 

Unmasking Joe Gbaba, RW Chea, & Thomas Toteh Falsehood & Mischief

Liberian War Victims and Friends of Liberia:

I bring you greetings in the name of the most high God of Israel. Jah- Rastafari!  Happy New Year to you all. Wishing you a successful 2013 as we struggle for the liberation of Liberia from the captivity of impunity.

We Are in a War for Freedom

Fellow Liberian war victims, friends of Liberia, and my Passionate Supporters, may I crystalize in this  medium that   we are at war with incredibly powerful forces. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12, KJV).

Some of the forces are multibillion dollar oil companies, multibillion dollar steel companies, multibillion dollar tire companies, as well as, morally and spiritually bankrupt self-proclaimed men and women of  God like Joe Gbaba  and  his newly found attorney, RW Chea.   We know what they are capable of doing to anyone. They have historically masterminded the downfall of countless true Pan Africanist.

H. E. Dr. Kwame Nkrumah the rightful leader of Ghana, Comrade Patrice Émery Lumumba, first Prime Minister of the Zaire,  Samora Machel leader of FRELIMO and first Prime Minister and President of Mozambique and others  were martyred by forces of  tyrannical, authoritative, autocratic, despotic, dictatorial,  doctrinaire, dogmatic and corrupt  corporate and religious hegemonies.

Hence, my inspiration and faith comes from the work of the above ordained leaders of African origin who set the standard of resistance against extraordinary superior force.  May the souls of all African heros rest in perpetual peace. I am grateful for their adventurous, audacious, courageous, daring, dauntless, defiant, fearless, firm,  gallantry role in the liberation of  the people of African origin.

With that said, the character of Thomas Toteh, Joe Gbaba, RW Chea and others   does represent the character of an Pan Africanist. These men are simply immorally and intellectually bankrupt idiots with no remorse. Gbaba and Chea are diabolically using so-called PhD and fraudulent  religious credentials  to  compensate for  their intellectual  deficiencies.

Knowing what I know now, I would not have ventured on the PhD journey because doctoral degree is only a door opener. Most PhD degree holders in our community are a disgrace. Gbaba, Chea, and Nat are  a classic example.   They lack conviction, they are morally decade!

Unmasking Joe Gbaba, RW Chea, & Thomas Toteh Falsehood & Mischief

With that said, some egotistic, selfish, morally bankrupt, and inherently corrupt men and women of gods with no remorse for the plight of Liberian war victims have elected to covertly campaign against the creation of an Internationally Backed War Crimes Court on Liberia. Unfortunately, most of the low life Liberians in this case did not experience the war physically, mentally, or economically, except for the few dollars they occasionally sent home to their immediate relatives and friends.

They have no record of volunteering for the general good of society. Every institution they have ever worked for has been on the basis of selfish economic gains. They lack any moral fortitude and conviction to take positions on what is right for the general good of society. They only take position on issues that are convenient to their selfish interests. They are fair-weather and chameleons friends whose friendships is based on what they can gain from others  rather than  what others can gain from them.

They are driven by their self-indulgence and love of earthly things. These folks are short sighted and lack no historical understanding of society because they have no conviction. They are spiritually dead and morally decade. They are unable to operate in peace and harmony.  They are inherently corrupt to the core and cannot resist the temptation of corruption and moral decadence. Some claim to be followers of Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, but are actually followers of Satan like Rw Chea and Joe Gbaba.

With that said, Joe Gbaba and RW Chea represent the character eloquently described above.  RW Chea instead of supporting the cause of justice for Liberian war victims, has reduced himself to the position of enablers of accused child molester and perpetrators of the 1990 St. Peter Church Massacre. Chea has desecrated the position of a REV by covertly providing cover for an accused criminal.

I believe Gbaba is capable enough to defend himself. When you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!  I am Doctorroots, The Oracle, The Unconventional!   I have no time to moderate or polish my text in order to appease a generation of fools and hypocrites. God, Jah Rastafari anointed me to weed out falsehood and traitors from the Liberian community in order to prepare the way for the great prosecution through the proposed  war crimes court.

Fellow Liberian war victims and friends of Liberia, it is written in the Holy Scriptures that “by their fruit, ye shall know them (Matthew 7:16).”  When you take a banana from Africa to Europe, it is a banana.  An apple will always bear an apple fruit. For too long pseudo men and women of gods have camouflaged themselves in many shades and have manipulated the process of justice and accountability in Liberia. Praise be to Jah Rastafari for the revelation that today, we can unapologetically denounce, chastise, and publically expose  demons like Gbaba, RW Chea and Toteh in our community.

Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing (Matthew 7:15)

Fellow Liberian War Victims, Friends of Liberia, and Human Rights Defenders around the world:

Gbaba and Rw Chea, had  the audacity to textually assault my person  in a frantic  effort  to divert public  attention from the cardinal questions raised in my previous  email regarding Gbaba’s alleged  immoral and violent  records.

Until Gbaba can provide substantive, conclusive, and logical answers to my questions, I will continue to repost.  Gbaba must know that I am more sophisticated than what he thinks of me.  As one of the victims of the notorious July 1990 St. Peter Church massacre (Reuters, 1990) and a fearless human rights advocate, I will not rest until Gbaba responds to the allegations of child molestation and the Lutheran Church Massacre.

The allegation of Gbaba’s alleged participation in the St. Peter Church Massacre is extremely distasteful to me.  I demand an immediate answer from Gbaba!

Regarding the Photos

Fellow Liberians and Liberian war victims,

I thought Gbaba was sophisticated enough to know that not all pictures speak a thousand words. Some pictures may be manipulated using Photoshop and other photo manipulative software for mischievous purposes.

Hence, I do not know when Gbaba took those photos employed in his diabolical diversionary tactics. I have no recollection of the photos. Do the photos have any time signature or digital foot print to substantiate   the place, date, and time?  Gbaba needs to do a better job next time regarding any digital evidence against the elected one of Jah Rastafari!!

With that said, fellow Liberians and Liberian war victims, the frantic attempts by Gbaba and his newly found lawyer, RW Chea to divert the attention of Liberian masses from the key debate surrounding Gbaba’s alleged involvement in child molestation and war crimes raises more questions about his innocence of those crimes that he is being accused of.  Why is he refusing to answer my questions?   Why is Gbaba attempting to tribalize his immoral behavior?

Hence, if Gbaba wishes to regain my respect and the respect of the Liberian masses, I demand an immediate answer from him within 72 hours otherwise; he will be listed as one of the violent perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Liberia. I will also alert the FBI and other federal and state agents about the case of his involvement in the alleged child molestation in Liberia. Gbaba must know that the crime of child molestation is an international crime with no statute of limitation or judiciary boundary!

Below is a Repost of my Questions for Gbaba’s Immediate Response:

  20. Do you believe Madam Sirleaf and her band of hard core war and economic criminal’s refusal to fully implement the 2003 Comprehensive Peace Accord (CPA) is treason against the Liberian people and Liberian war victims?

Regarding Thomas’s Toteh Allegation

Fellow Liberian War Victims and Friends of Liberia,

The evil that man does lives after him” (William Shakespeare). I worked with Thomas Toteh intimately on addressing the question of impunity in Liberia.  Toteh and his kinsman Gbaba deceived me  and other human rights activists into believing that  they  support human rights and accountability. Regrettably and sadly, we later found out they  were actually a spy for some of the most violent men and women in Liberia. Thus, The Oracle has no choice but to do what he does best.  As  one of the Liberian war victims, I will not permit any  supporters of  brutes like George Boley, Prince Johnson, etc. to live  peacefully in the United States.

Lackeys of Prince Johnson, George Boley, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf   deserve to burn in hell following their conviction like Charles Taylor. With God’s help, the time is now!

With that said, if you want to self deport like Toteh, then follow his lead!

Using Religion as the Instrument of Mischief in Liberia

The infinite resource in Liberia is churches and mosque but yet, most Liberians including their so-called men and women of gods are extremely evil to the core. When ask, why are some Liberian religious leaders so evil and criminal?  Their feeble and illogical response is “we are living in the last days.”

 Such irresponsible, reckless, and unfounded defense in support of cruelty against fellow Liberians only aids and abet impunity.

With that said, Bishop Chea are you a false bishop? Who ordained you as bishop? Did you study philosophy at the theological school? When did you graduate?  How would you differentiate your church from other Liberian churches or denominations? What is the biblical and spiritual dichotomy between your church and other denominations?  How long have you been in the ministry? When did you accept Christ? What is the underpinning foundation of your faith and your church’s articles of faith? How would you describe your personal conviction? How would you describe your personal relationship with Christ, your wife, and congregation?  What ethical believe based on the bible do you profess? Have you cheated on your wife?

Chea must know that the code words he mischievously used in his morally bankrupted email are not words that one can get by me with impunity.   Such reckless and irresponsible defense of lackeys of Gbaba has unfortunately helped to aid and abet perpetrators of violent crimes, as well as, their financial and political patrons in Liberia.  Chea are you an enabler of Gbaba’s alleged crimes?  Do you have any knowledge of Gbaba’s involvement in child molestation in Liberia? Are you a faithful man of God? Are you a fateful husband?  Has your wife accused or ever suspected you of infidelity?  What is the foundation of your Christian faith? Do you believe in Christ Jesus? Are you practicing his will?  Are you a prosperity bishop deceptively extorting money from  people who come to your so-call church? Who are you?

A Call to Action

Therefore, brothers and sisters, there is no time for passivity and laissez-faire tendencies.  The hard truth is that America and its allies will not establish any war crimes court on Liberia in isolation of Liberian war victim’s participation. We must take ownership of the process. We must forcefully demonstrate our urgent desire for justice in Liberia now! We must be assertive in our quest for sustainable peace, justice, and development.

We must ideologically, philosophically, psychologically, and morally attack Ellen AKA Jezebel Sirleaf peace ambassadors and whosoever that  subscribes to their philosophy of peace which  violent perpetrators get away with impunity

Peace and Love

Exposing Traitors and Sympathizers of Perpetrators of War and Economic Criminals in Our Community

Toteh and others,

Thank you for the prompt response. Psychologically, a mentally ill person lives in a delusional world of self-denial.  Your denial is no surprise to me.  Regarding the question of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Liberia, one cannot dismiss the role of foreign state and non-state actors.

  1. State and Non State Actors
  1. State Actors

The conviction of Taylor sets a unique precedence for future prosecution.  State actors such as  Gaddafi  of Libya, Blaise Compaore of Burkina Faso, Lansana Conte  of Guinea,  and Félix Houphouët-Boigny of Ivory Coast will all have to account for their rile on aiding and abetting the NPFL.

  1. Non State Actors

Additionally, multinationals including Oriental Timber Company (OTC) and Firestone will also have to account for their role in aiding and abetting the NPFL. Unsculpus business and religious  men  such as Pat Robertson (Brooks) and Jessie Jackson (WND, 2002) who maliciously aided and abetted the   Americo Liberian  True Whig Party backed Charles Taylor and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s notorious  NPFL will also be  held accountable.

African American Leadership  Hypocrisy in Africa: The Case of Liberia

Some African American leaders have  consistently and regrettably aided and abetted gross discrimination, human rights violations, and political disfranchisement in Liberia while hypocritically fighting for   equal rights and justice in America.  Illicitly  using  their connections  and positions both in the democratic and republican caucuses  on capitol hill, these  folks have  consistently   misinformed  the American public on the Liberian crisis  in favor of their business  and political interests in Liberia.

Often,  the interests of their compatriots who were once free slaves in the US.  These folks settled in Liberia and established a Southern Plantation society of slavery characterized by social and political exclusion including  gross human rights violations against the aborigines of Liberia.

Being fully knowledgeable of these gross  human  rights violations and degrading  practices against Liberian aborigines,  Rev. Jessie Jackson, Sr., Congressman Jessie Jackson, Jr., Congressman Chris Smith, and the late Congressman Donald Payne including other African Americans  leaders have  consistently,  shamefully, and hypocritically   adopted a double standard position on Liberia.

In the  text of  the  congratulatory message to Madam Sirleaf  following  the 2011 controversial elections  in which Madam Sirleaf was the only candidate,   Congressman Jessie Jackson Jr. described all those oppose to madam Sirleaf as undermining  the peace and security of Liberia and threatened sanctions.  “The United States will hold accountable any and all political leaders and their supporters seeking to undermine Liberia’s peace and democracy by all means available, including the possible use of multilateral and bilateral sanctions (Jesse L. Jackson, 2011).”

Congressman Chris Smith (R-New Jersey), Chairman of the U.S. House Subcommittee on Africa Global Health and Human Rights along with Congressman Jessie Jackson, Jr.,  following the 2011 illegal elections in Liberia, in my view, without   any formal investigation, warned U.S. sanctions against Liberian opposition leaders (Africa.com, 2011).

The late Congressman Donald Payne was also an ardent supporter of Madam Sirleaf.  Considering the level of violence Madam Sirleaf and cohorts perpetrated against Liberia and the people of Liberia, I find it very difficult to understand why  some African American leaders,  who were subject of social and political exclusion would support such a  Babylonian and inhuman hegemony against weak and defenseless aborigine people of Liberia.

The only credible vehicle for sustainable peace, reconciliation, and justice  in Liberia  is the proposed Internationally Backed War Crimes Court on Liberia. We are aware  that some of the leaders named above are dead, but they acted in their official capacities as Presidents therefore, their respective countries will be held accountable for the destruction of Liberia and they will be made to pay reparation. OTC, Firestone, and other foreign nationals who were engaged in illicit trade and extraction of our natural resources including timber, gold, diamond, rubber, etc shall also be held liable for the destruction of Liberia and be made to pay reparation as well.  The establishment of an Internationally Backed war Crimes Court on Liberia is the  key.

The Irresponsibly Blaming America

For one to  suggest that America is solely responsible for Liberia’s calamity is to say the Federal Government is responsible for the senseless   black-on-black violence taken place across America inner cities. This is the  irresponsible excuse most immature black leaders use to compensate for their gross negligence, thoughtless, unaccountable, untrustworthy, capricious, and carefree tendencies. No one wants to be a man and take responsibility.

If Liberia is to be liberated from the bondage of grotesque impunity, it will require extraordinary action by extraordinary men and women and not immature children who do not take responsibility. The quality of a man is not measured by the size of his endowment or how many women he got pregnant, but by being a responsible father to his children. Providing for his household and training his children to be responsible citizens. That’s what makes a responsible parent. This is largely missing from the black communities in most urban cities. Most black men only know how to get a woman pregnant, but  do not know how to take responsibility for the pregnancy. This is a shameful  and disgraceful tendency in our communities across America.

As a result, we have fatherless babies growing up practically on their own. Their role models and idols are rap artists who were mostly   fatherless as well.  Growing  up in violence and managing somehow to make it to the top echelon of rap music does not qualify one as a good role model.  This is the fundamental problem facing black America. We must now begin to take responsibility and stop blaming the white man for our senseless, irresponsible, and immoral behaviors.

The same goes to African leaders; we must stop blaming America, or imperialism for our gross neglect and failed leadership. We must take responsibility for the failure of Africa in the 21th century. How can you continue to depend on the Western Hemispheres aid in the 21th century when you have almost 60% of the world’s natural resources (oil, diamond, gold, etc)? This is a disgrace! Africans must emancipate their minds from the mentality  of slavery and embrace responsibility and leadership for the development of Africa in the 21st century. Poverty is in the mind, think big (Massaquoi, 2009).

Regarding Taylor’s jail break,  there are countless cases of prison break (Press, 2012) in America. Can one attribute all prison breaks (Dawson, 2011)  to your ill-conceived conspiracy theory that Washington is responsible for some obvious purpose?  Brother Toteh, you know better than that!  Regarding your statement;

“There is nothing you can do about that no matter how many rehabs you take me to; I will not bow down. Oh, you wanted me to be chasing only Liberian suspected war criminals and leave out their American facilitators. If you don’t have the guts to question American warlords, I will stand in the way of your question to Liberian warlords. Remember, every little count. I may be small in your eyes, but I have some courage, very strong, hardworking and willpower. And I/we will win you. I am sorry to disappoint you; I am not your kind of advocate. I care less what you think about me, mentally unstable or whatever. If I was going your way and dancing to the beat of your confused war crimes court drum, you would be celebrating me.”

By taken on the wrong target demonstrates the highest degree of stupidity and ignorance. It brings to question your level of scholarship and understating of the historical and psychological intricacies of the Liberian conflict.   I do not expect you to dance to the beat of my drum but exercise logic and scholarship in your advocacy.

Regarding your much talk about book,  I read your book six months ago during the literature review exercise for my research project. Honesty, I found very little information of relevance to my work. Form an academic and scientific point of view, the book is loaded with baseless and unfounded allegations. You would have done a good job if you had provided references to substantiate the key points you attempted to present.  On the overall,   you made  a good  first attempt, keep it up.

We must take responsibility for the liberation of Liberia. We cannot continue to live in the 20th century mentality in which every ills in Africa  attributed to imperialism. Fortunately, we have had the opportunity to study and work  in the so-called imperialistic society at various levels.  I do not know about you, for me, I have been privileged and blessed to have served on many Boards here in the US and created many organizations. To name a few, I served as the First Vice President of the Board of Directors of the Community Health Center of Richmond. I also served as Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee and Human Resource Committee.  In addition, I serve as Co-Chair of the Human Services Committee, Community Board # 1, and Staten Island. Currently, I am a member of the United Nations Global Compact USA Network.  For my day job, I am business consultant. I work on my own time.  My 24 hour job is the struggle for the transformation of Liberia from the current state of gross impunity characterized by social and political decadence to a state of accountability and the rule of law. The creation of an Internationally Backed War Crimes Court is the central component of my job.

My almost eleven (11)  years  (June 2002- November 2012) in the US has been dedicated to studying and serving humanity.  I need not emphasize on my academic and professional credentials but I must celebrate the blessings God has bestowed on me.  I have been blessed to create my own job and worked at a very high level of the American society. I have gained a deep understanding of how the American society works both at the community level and at higher levels.

Understating America merely from the classroom to working 9-5 jobs to house your family and put bread on the table is not sufficient.  Such experience is a very narrow-minded and restrictive   experience of America. Such is the case with many Liberians who profess to know America. It is not how long you have lived in  America, but what you have done with your life here accounts. How have you contributed to building America? What have you done to elevate the plight of your fellow men? My goal in life is to make  mother earth a little better than I met it.  What is your goal in life?

I encourage all Liberians who are interested in democratizing Liberia to take advantage of the glorious opportunities  in the US and   participate in organizations outside of the Liberian community. Join international groups. Attend your local community council meetings and play a leadership role. That is how you will understand the intricacy of the American democracy. The classroom and 9-5 experience is limited. Make some contribution to the change you aspire to.  Don’t just criticize,   but make an impact! Be a part of the solution!

Intellectually Cheap Argument

While I was about to conclude this note, I came across your email and so in decided to respond in this manner.

1. (a)The first attempt to punish one of the war suspects failed miserably; Ellen Sirleraf is serving two six-year term. Ninety-nine percent of Krahn/Sapo people will not cooperate with anybody who is seeking the prosecution of their heroes, George Boley et al. The wise know the implication.

Response:  You do not  speak for the Sapo/Krahn people. Boley  and Krhan Warlords are not the heroes of Grand Gedeh County. The  barbaric and inhuman conduct  of their wars bring shame and disgrace to the people of Grand Gedeh county. I have several Krhan nephews  and nieces. My village  less than 4 miles from lower Nimba. My sisters and brothers married from the Krhan  tribe.  Your illusion that Boley and other notorious war criminals represent the Krhan is false and self-serving. How did you arrive at your conclusion? Did you conduct an empirical research or anecdote research ? What type of research method for example, Quasi-Experiments, True Experiments, Correlational  or  Observational research, etc.? Which one? Which  research design?  Quantitative  and  Qualitative? Which one?

2. Ninety-nine percent of Gio and Mano people will not dance to the drum beaten by people who want to prosecute their heroes, Prince Johnson et al. Prince Johnson took third place in the presidential election. That how popular he is with his people. The wise know the implication.

Response: I am a native Gio boy from Zoe Geah District where Prince Johnson hill from. I shared  family ties with more than 20 former NPFL special forces. Including the late General verney who was Prince immediate partner in the INPFL.  I lost more than 10  immediate members of my family  on the battle field prosecuting Ellen and Taylor’s immoral war.  Do you know how many Gio and Mino’s Prince Johnson brutally murdered?  Do  you think Prince John represents the interests of Nimba county?  Many citizens of Nimba view Prince Johnson as a violent  brute who seek after his personal economic and political interests.  Your  delusional  and self-serving view that Prince John is the hero of Nimba is false and misleading. You don’t know anything about Nimba  and therefore  have no credibility on the psychological  and political disposition of Nimba citizens.  

3. Ninety-nine percent of Mandingo people will not clap for people who want to prosecute their messiahs, Kromah, Conneh et al. The wise know the implication.

4. Liberians are tired of paying debt (1980 to 1989 or on and one we go). They want to let bygones be bygones and move on with their lives uninterrupted by some group of attention seekers.

Response: The Mandingos I know and lived with in Nimba are better than Kromah and Conneh. These men and their allies  are nothing but common war and economic criminals.

5. It costs UN millions of dollars and years to prosecute one warlord. Liberians don’t have money to try  suspected war criminals. It would take millions of dollars just to gather evidence and millions of dollars and years to establish and prosecute cases against more than 10 suspected war criminals. A lot of other legal procedures are involved that most or all war crimes court advocates out there don’t know.

Response: What do you know about the UN protocol?  Have you participated in any UN forums, have you been involve any UN sub-organizations such as UNISECO, etc?  Do you know how the special court in Sierra Leone was created and  funded? Have you read the Agreement for and Statute of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, 16 January 2002

6. Those who are calling for the prosecution of war a crimes court in Liberia have no spine to question some of the major victimizers of Liberians. This means Liberians will not allow to be used by cowards to sow seed of another discord in Liberia.

Response: What  do you mean about mean victimizers? Please explain.

7. War Crimes court is not one of Liberians’ basic needs after war. Liberians’ basic needs include food, health, shelter, and social needs include interpersonal connectedness and love, education, employment, physical and intellectual ability and so forth.

Response: Who determines Liberia basic needs? You or the war and economic currently ruling Liberia like an abused bartered child?

8. Liberians would prefer economic crimes court to war crimes court.

Response: You do not speak for all Liberians but  rather  the few brutes who willfully elected to murder and plunder Liberia.

9. The establishment of a war crimes court in Liberia has less or no impact on the fight against corruption in Liberia. The establishment of a war crimes court will not put food on ordinary Liberians’ tables.

Response: The Problem of Liberia is not corruption but impunity.

10. And last but not the least, Liberians need people who will reconcile them without pointing finger. Liberians need people who will go from county to county, city to city, town to town and village to village spreading the message of reconciliation through series of festivities including

inter soccer games and etc.  

Response:  There can be no peace and reconciliation without   accountability on the part of perpetrators and justice for victims.

Cowardly Tendency

Toteh,  you willingly attended all LIJ’s  formative meetings and participated in the drafting of some of our documents. Why didn’t you express your opposition to war crimes court. Why now? Why the sudden conversion? Did money change hands?   Are you an agent of Boley or Ellen? Why are you afraid of  the establishment of war crimes court on Liberia?

The above reasons you provide is inclusive,  insufficient,  nonsensical, lacks moral and intellectual basis   and does not compensate for the  incalculable loss of lives and properties in Liberia. Do you have other logical and conclusive  reasons for rejecting  the establishment of an International Backed War Crimes  Court on Liberia? Do you rather maintain the current status quo of gross  impunity and human rights violation? Or do you rather have well documented war and economic criminals run Liberia  with impunity ?  You are a traitor.  Thank God for exposing you at this early stage of our struggle.

Call to Action

If anyone believes America is responsible for the calamities in Liberia, than I urge you to join us in the struggle for the establishment of an Internationally Backed War Crimes Court so that you can bring charges against whatever American government agencies, officials, businesses, and private citizens. But don’t undermine the struggle for the creation of an Internationally Backed War Crimes Court on Liberia. By doing so would suggest you support  Ellen and her thugs who are currently ruling Liberia like an abused bastard child.    The Court would provide an opportunity for everyone to litigate their guilt or innocence.  Will you join the struggle for the creation of an Internationally Backed War Crimes Court on Liberia?

I encourage  you to take responsible and stop baselessly blaming America.  Let  it be  known  to all those who continue to irresponsibly and recklessly blame America for Liberia’s self-destructive war that Liberian war victims who have been graciously blessed by America will no longer allow such an ungrateful and self-serving stupidity to continue with impunity.  We will hold you accountable in the court of law to produce whatever evidence so that we can use those evidences in future litigation.  We will no longer allow anyone to confuse the Liberian masses with irresponsible and baseless statements purely designed to support and legitimize people who have committed well documented war and economic crimes against Liberia and the people of Liberia.

As a war victim, I consider the question of accountability for Liberian war victims very personal. I have put everything on hold (marriage, family, pleasure, etc.)   for this cause. This is not about politics, but the lives of thousands of innocent men and women killed in cold blood by those brutes who are currently ruling Liberia like an abuse bastard child. We will not allow anyone to live amongst us why supporting perpetrators who cause incalculable psychological and mental trauma for thousands of Liberian war victims here in the US.  Your days of impunity in the diaspora are numbered!

You are either for justice and accountability for Liberian war victims or a supporter of impunity in Liberia. 2013 will be a defining moment for the struggle for the liberation of Liberia from the satanic culture of impunity. If you are a supporter of impunity in Liberia then we have an intellectual, philosophical, psychological, economic, and legal battle on hand. Be preparing for the battle in 2013.

We look forward to the challenge.
