Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind, Says John F. Kennedy. WAR is never a good thing either a solution to a problem.... In my own view, WAR is just a continuation of politics by other means and is something absurd, useless, that nothing can justify. Frankly, The Nigeria/Biafra war of 1967-1970 is a complete mass murder by few serial killers who has not yet been brought to book. I was emotionally disturbed when i saw this Biafran photos, both men, women & children been slaughtered like fowl. More than 1 million lives was wasted during this wicked murder by cold-blooded killers & their counterparts abroad.

My Question Still: What Has Been Achieved After This Mass Massacre Of The Innocent Children And Their Mothers???   

**My country Nigeria is completely insane even presently**

SEE PHOTOS:It's really disturbing! Very Disturbing!!!
