Another country falls into martial law.

"He assumed executive powers after the constitutional court turned down his attempt to extend his time in power.

The court had found it would be illegal for Mr Tandja to hold a referendum on a change in the law, to allow him to continue as head of state. "

The scariest part to me, is that the media won't even call it martial law anymore. They use terms like: "dissolving parliment" anmd "executive power". Don't be fooled. There is only one this that this can be described as.

Too bad Africa doesn't have any oil or crazy dictators that don't take orders from the CIA. Africa is just an absolute cluster#, it's amazing that it just seems to get continually worse over there while white hands do all the profiting.

Well, what makes this particular situation even more scary is the fact that niger is a country RICH in uranium.

Plenty of leaders out there would love to have control of those mines, I'd guess.

Ahh but how long until Niger gets approached by other countries (say Iran or North Korea) to supply Uranium in exchange for additional votes blocking UN sanctions against the new dictator?

you would probably mean NIGERIA??




and whats with all this racism comments?

Just because the nation is where the N word came from, doesn't mean the nation is politically incorrect to say

Niger or Nigeria are both accepted names, and neither are racist

How is that racist or ignorant? I'm talking about all of Africa including the diamond trade, the modern slave trade, the arms trade, etc. Also how bad the United States and other Euro nations have screwed Africa into the state they're in.

By the way, I'm white not that it matters.

Good to see that we are all so grown up on here that we can have a discussion about one of the more important countries in the world without it degenerating into jokes about the name "Niger"
