    THE DECEIVED AND MANIPULATED PEOPLES OF NIGERIA,
    JUST LOOK CLOSELY AND EXAMINE CAREFULLY THE PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEOS OF THE BOMB EXPLOSIONS AT MADALA, MAIDUGURI, DAMATURU, JOS, GADAKA, AND KANO, AND ANSWER THIS SIMPLE QUESTION TO YOURSELVES : WHY ALMOST EVERY BUILDING AND EVERY CAR HAD BEEN HIT “FROM ABOVE”, AND NOT “FROM SIDEWAYS” ?!?! PLEASE KNOW THAT IN THIS “GLOBE”, AND SINCE YEARS AGO, THERE ARE THINGS CALLED SATELLITE-GUIDED “U.A.V. DRONES” THAT CAN RELEASE “SMART BOMBS” WHICH CAN BE PROGRAMMED TO EXPLODE BEFORE TOUCHING, AND YARDS ABOVE, GROUND LEVELS. FURTHERMORE : HOW CAN AN ALLEGED “SUICIDE-BOMBER” EASILY WEAR AND WANDER ABOUT UNNOTICED WITH 60 TO 80 KILOS OF EXPLOSIVES ON HIS BODY ?!?! ALSO : HOW CAN THE ALLEGED “THIRD WORLD ‘BOKO’ INSURGENTS” SURPASS AND OUTCLASS PROFESSIONAL FIGHTERS OF AMERICAN S.W.A.T. AND BLACKWATER, TOGETHER ?!?!
    EXPECT THAT YOU FIND : The Same Overly Criminal “Globalist” Party, of the Free-Masonic Globe-Ruling-Claimers, that is waging the HARSH-WAR-OF-BULLETS-AND-BOMBS, ON YOU PEOPLES OF NIGERIA, is the very same Horrible Terrible Party, that is ‘ORDER-ing’ your president and your government to threaten and strike you by the Other SOFT-WAR-OF-ECONOMY, of raising petrol prices to ‘lunatic’ proportions, and keeping them so.
    BEHOLD and BEWARE : With both kinds of Secret Wars, the Harsh and the Soft, The Free-Masonic Globalists are AIMING AND EXECUTING at setting you “THE DECEIVED AND MANIPULATED PEOPLES OF NIGERIA” to be on the pull and on your toes, and battling against each other, and then you all reach their Goal-State of “Creative Chaos”, which is Creative of CHAOS, and then DETERIORATION, and then COLLAPSE. Just the same as they did and still do to the peoples of Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yaman, etc., who all had been air-stricken, with bombs and opium-like drug-vapours. So that the internal down-sliding states of destructive chaos go on and on in them. These ‘States-Erasing-States’ are thought to be, by those Satan-Worshipers, as roads-opening for them to reach : a Full Declaration and a Complete Realization of Their Humans-Killing and Humans-Enslaving “Global State”. The Pre-Planned And Pre-Set Date given for that World-Wide Catastrophe by some researchers is very near : 1 – 1 – 2013 !!!!!!
