Syria-Putin's bombs and a call to arms: A Femi Fani Kayode Production

The sound and sight of Russian cruise missiles and smart bombs dropping on thousands of ISIL fighters in Syria is a thing of joy. It is like music to my ears. At last someone has cultivated the courage to stop the pampering and to desist from trying to rationalize the evil of ISIS and the forces of terror. I have no doubt that President Vladimir Putin is being used by God to deliver the world from the greatest evil that we have witnessed since Hitler’s fascism. The Russians are doing a great work in Syria.

They confronted and crushed the evil of terrorism in Chechnya and now they are doing it in the Middle East. Mr. Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi and his ISIL fighters deserve no mercy. They deserve even worse than they are getting. We must encourage the Russians to keep the bombs flying and to send the demons to hell where they belong.

This ought to be a lesson to the world and to President Obama. You don’t encourage and tolerate evil on the altar of political expediency and neither should you support or covertly fund terrorists. More importantly whether the west wishes to accept it or not there is a new kid on the block who refuses to take prisoners and who understands the importance of wiping out the dark forces and bringing in the light. 

Those that believe that terrorists should be treated lightly, should be granted amnesty, should be negotiated with or should be used for a greater purpose have failed to grasp the importance of the following counsel: when the rubbish begins to stink you must throw it out. When slaves begin to overestimate their own importance and relevance you must cut off their balls.

When dogs seek to rule in the land of men you must shoot them in the head. When a chicken starts to believe that it is an eagle you must cut off its beak. When the witch begins to afflict humanity you must burn her at the stake. When demons begin to call themselves angels you must send them back to hell.

When psychopaths and sociopaths rule the land you must kill them all and ensure that there is no trace of their existence. Clearly Putin has imbued this philosophy and this set of principles very well. And it serves our collective purpose. Four years ago I advocated the Putin approach to confronting Boko Haram in Nigeria. In a series of essays I argued that we must wipe them out and if necessary blow up the communities and towns that covertly give them support.

I made the case that they were nothing but pure evil and that they represented something so reprehensible and beastly that it was far beyond the understanding or imagination of the average Nigerian. I told the Nigerian people that if it required the systematic slaughter of entire populations to remove the cancer of jihadist terror then we must cultivate the courage to get on with the job and do it.

I argued that President Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern-day Turkey, killed over one million fundamentalists and terrorists in his quest to establish a modern-day Muslim secular state and that it worked. I told the world that as long as Saudi Arabia continued to propagate and covertly fund the Wahhabi philosophy and the Salifist movement that the world would not know peace and that neither would we be free of terror.

More importantly I warned the world about the danger of trusting President Barack Obama and how his covert policy of supporting terror groups like the Al Nusra Front in Syria against a secularist Syrian government would lead to disaster. As usual all my counsel fell on deaf ears and I received nothing but insults from the majority of our people who labeled me as hater of Muslims and who couldn’t see beyond their noses.

They were unable to make a distinction between a true Muslim and a radical jihadist who believes in the use of terror and violence. The result of their lack of understanding and foresight is what we have today both in Syria and Nigeria. Abuja is being bombed again and once again our soldiers are being slaughtered on the war front. Ever since the present administration has come to power the gains that were made by the previous administration against Boko Haram have been lost.

Worst still the terrorist group have managed to mount a major counter-offensive against our cities in the north-east and to slaughter thousands in our civilian population. Just a few days ago no less than five bombs went off in one day. There is no doubt in my mind that now more than ever we need to retrace our steps and look to Putin’s Russia as our natural ally in our fight against terror. If we want to stamp out Boko Haram we must look to the Russian Federation.

If we refuse to eat humble pie and get the help that we need then we must prepare for greater casualties and more losses in our fight against terror. This is all the more so given the fact that Boko Haram has now joined ranks with ISIS.

Permit me to end this contribution with a few words about the nature of the jihadists. They have an insatiable appetite for sadism and cruelty. They do not have the milk of human kindness in them and neither do such creatures react to gentle appeals. I say this because they are fundamentalists and zealots that are totally committed to destroying everything that we hold dear. Simply put they have gone beyond the realms of reason and rationality. If anyone doubts this they should find out about the horrific plight of the Yazidis’ in Iraq and Syria whose women are treated as nothing but spoils of war by the ISIL fighters.

These are ruthless and bloodthirsty men and they are committed to the destruction of the secular state, to the abrogation of our most basic civil liberties and human rights, to the waging of a global jihad and to the creation of a new Islamic caliphate where full sharia law is practiced and where Christianity and all other forms of religion, except for their own perverse understanding and interpretation of Islam, are banned. They also wish to change our way of life and impose their will on us through violent and barbaric means.

People that are so debased and that have such little regard for human life and values are hardly likely to listen to appeals from anyone. You do not offer carrots to beasts. The only things they understand are bombs and the only language they appreciate is violence.

A leading Pakistani politician made an interesting and relevant contribution on CNN last year when he spoke about the horrific stoning to death of a young lady outside the High Court in Islamabad simply because she married the man of her choice. He said, ’’Pakistan is a country in which some people are fighting to keep us in the 21st century whilst others are fighting to take us back into the 8th century”. This is the bitter truth and the same conflict is playing out in parts of the Middle East, north Africa, east Africa and Nigeria.

It is time for us to come together and cleanse our land of these godless creatures. They should be cleansed from the land and eliminated in the same way that cockroaches and rats are cleansed and eliminated from a filthy house. This is because they are nothing but vermin and vampires from hell sent to our nation by Satan to torment and destroy us.

They have slaughtered and raped our women and children, they have butchered and crucified our men, they have burnt our homes and bombed and desecrated our places of worship, they have slaughtered our religious leaders, they have taken over our communities and they have flown their evil black flag in parts of our nation.

What more do they have to do to us before we cultivate the courage and the firm resolve to rise up and resist them? This is a call to arms. I call on every Nigerian to rise up, to fight the evil and to protect the integrity of our land and our people.

I call on the military to be professional, thorough, brutal and ruthless, to show no mercy and to hold no quarter. I call on our people to have no dealings or interaction with ANYONE or any group of people that suggest that we should have dialogue with or that we should grant amnesty to Boko Haram.

I call on them to view such people with the utmost suspicion. I say this because you do not reward mass murderers, sociopaths, psychopaths, homicidal maniacs, child abductors, king-slayers, child rapists and criminally insane terrorists with amnesty or dialogue. Instead you dispatch them to hell where they belong. It is the same for Boko Haram and all those that secretly collaborate with them.

We must not view them as human beings but as savage beasts and demons that eat human flesh and drink human blood. That is what they are: the spoilers and abductors of little girls. They are not worthy of life. They are not worthy of God’s mercy.

They are not worthy of our people or of our nation. To destroy them is our holy duty before the Living God: it is God’s will that they should be wiped off the face of the earth and that the Nigerian people should be rid of them forever.
