O boy!
I feel mentally perplexed given the surge of political tension emanating from the prospective 2015 Nigeria's presidential election. One definitely wouldn't need a new pair of eyes to behold the handwriting on the wall that 2015 is to all intent and purpose doom-laden.

It's inevitably another "tug of extermination" between our Nigerian political rapscallions who have and are are yet constituting themselves into two titanic politica juggernauts, hell-bent on employing all possible inhuman and unscrupulous mechanics towards compelling either 'bloc' to kotou to its hegemonic impetus with the mentality aut vincere aut mori ( do or die). The incremental apostasy among these 'unpeopled' and narcissistic politicians from one bloc to another is thus evidentiary against this background.

Fierce tension has continue to impregnate the political as well as social ambience. Politicians are far from being disincentivised from perpetuating their savagery and carnages in the coming 2015 elections, (which is very characteristical of the Nigerian elections) given the fact that virtually all of them have in one time or another gotten away with "blue murder" in broad-daylight or a slap on their wrists in the worst case scenarios for their respective malfeasances. The growing "army of the unemployed and frustrated graduates", the hungry masses and the restiveness arising from the Bok- Haram blood-lettings have not assuaged the fine state of affairs in the country either. The eye of the international community is on us, yet doesn't serve as a deterrent against the sword of damocle hanging over the innocent masses, who more often than not have fallen victims to this caliber of fierce politicking in Nigeria.

Prior to now, I felt really umbrageous at the prognostication by the US that the Nigeria state wouldn't survive the impendence of disintegration arising from the 2015 presidential election. But now its conspicuously visible to the perceptive that the US was far from being economical with the truth in that regard, however unpalatable and pestilential it did seem to Nigerians at first.

Nigeria, a country reknown as an umpire of peace in Africa and amicable disposed towards the world, is gravitating quickly towards an unmitigated state of lawlessness and disorder. This indeed will not only constitute a" death-blow" to Nigeria as a state, but as well as Africa as a continent.

God help Nigeria.
God help Africa!

The Individual & the Collective, Politics, & the UN, with Jean-Marie Guéhenno

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?

A Russian Take on the Kurds and U.S. Foreign Policy

A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev connects this characterization to the need for leaders to connect a specific policy action to a larger, understandable narrative for the American public.

The Struggle for Recognition in International Relations, with Michelle Murray

How can established powers manage the peaceful rise of new great powers? Bard's Michelle Murray offers a new answer to this perennial question, arguing that power transitions are principally social phenomena whereby rising powers struggle to obtain recognition as world powers. How can this framework help us to understand the economic and military rivalry between United States and China?
