  1. The biggest thing on US mind is the establishment of a military base in Nigeria. We have said: “NO!” President Yar’Adua should pls. STICK to a “NO!” answer! The US can not “harm” him. and Nigerians will FOREVER like and love him. If he agrees to US AFRICOM, Bush will say: “Good man!” and ‘smile’, but will say to himself: “Another Dummy African!”
