Re: HE CAN NOT STOP AMERICA


The man answered the question truthfully but used the wrong language. YES, he can stop America from establishing a military base in a sovereign Ghana state but at what price?

This is my guess. I think what he was trying to say is that, stopping America to establish a miltary base will be detrimental to our economic wellbeing since Americans has a lot of clout at the IMF, World Bank and other international financial institutions, our ability to access financial resources outside the country will be curtailed.
Maybe because of pride and patriotism we don't want to hear this, but that is the reality on the ground. America can make a country a pariah on the world scene and if you don't bow to their urging now, you will do so in future. Apartheid was brought to its knees when American and its allies slapped economic embargo on the Apartheid regime of Botha. Look at what is going on in ZIMBABWE and you can understand what Addo Kuffour is talking about.

Though I think this man is qualified to be President, Ghana cannot afford another Kuffour Presidency immediately after his brothers.
