It is very wrong for a nation of 150 million people to suffer for the misguided and uncouth act of one man. Personally, the intention of Umar Farouk Abdullmutalab is wrong and anti-humanitarian, no any sane person who has love for humanity will cultivate or be compelled to embrace such intention irrespective of the prejudice of external forces.
Nigeria should not be branded as a terrorist nation nor its citizens be seen as potential terrorist. President Barack Obama is totally wrong alongside the advisers that suggested to him that Nigeria be included in such a list and be subjected to additional check whenever they are traveling to The United States.
Mr President, you should try and look inward, I know you have a conscience that is bigger than your heart. Look deeply some of your international policies...something is wrong somewhere that is sparking rage in the minds and hearts of some people, hence their act. There is no where you can change the world when there is bad gangrene in your closet.
I implore you to de-list Nigeria from this terror list with immediate effect for we do not have history of this kind of act.

Mr. Obama MAY BE wrong but his actions are JUSTIFIED. Act 1: Where was Yar'dua at the UN meeting held this summer? Act 2: Clinton came to Nigeria and had very strong words for us as Nigerians and still, a couple of months later, James Ibori is freed on a 170 count charge, Boko Haram occured. Act 3: Our President has been out of the country for the past 44 days. Act 4: Mutallab attempts to bomb a U.S. airline and where is Mr. President to discuss with Obama? He is nowhere to be found. Act 5: Radicals in Bauchi are still killing themselves right after Mutallab's actions. Who did our President assign powers to before he left? Nobody. If this happened during OBJ's time, trust baba will be in the U.S. discussing with Obama on how to move forward and convince him we are not terrorist. So President Obama's actions are justified and some might consider it not to be wrong. In addition to that, we scam Americas, we bring drugs into their country, and now one of ours is attempting to kill them. Puhlease.....President Obama has the right to add us to that list and protect his citizens that he serves after all the atrocities we have done in their country. They too commit atrocities in our country and we should punish them for that. Not because we let thier people get away with atrocities should they let us get away with atrocities. If you don't beat your child because he steals from you does not mean I should beat him when he steals from me.
I meant If you don't beat your child because he steals from you does not mean I should NOT beat him when he steals from me.

Instead of

If you don't beat your child because he steals from you does not mean I should beat him when he steals from me.

I am happy to see the extent of your patriotism. However, the truth is that Nigeria and its government insulted their nation way before the U.S did. A country that has been without a president or acting president for two months is more of an insult than the blacklisting. Speaking about blacklisting, why are we up in arms with this action? We are the only country in the world where the lines for U.S visas are formed at 3:00AM. Our government is the only government in the world that encourages its citizens to seek greener pastures abroad. The only opportunities that exist for Nigerian youths are kidnapping for ransom and armed robbery. These are acts of terrorism too and by itself enough to blacklist Nigeria. Or, is it not because it is done against Nigerians? How come our government has not taken any serious action to give the youths opportunities to survive and thrive in their own country? While it is important that we remain patriotic to Nigeria, it is more important that we hold our leaders accountable for their actions and be informed to avoid blind patriotism.
MR I am a Nigerian but I do not think Obama is wrong unless if we are deluding ourselves. Farouk only highlighted the home grown terrorism that have engulfed Nigeria over the years. What about all the religious killings that have been going on in the North. Mr what you need to understand now is we now live in a global village. Those people that were killed in the name of religion are someone elses sons, daughter,father,mother,uncle,auntie etc. Are you saying those people are not human? Gangsters and ritualism are the hallmark of terrorism. Handful of individuals are terrorising the majority, if that is not terrorism please let me know. The problem with Nigeria is the truth sucks. Mrs Clinton said the truth and rather than look at the contents of what she said. Everyone including the looters jumped on her back. This was not the country I was raised as a child. This is an alien country with obsession with materiality. There is no compassion for another human being. I will love to know what your definition of terrorism is.

Cheers
nigeria has always been in the fore front of fighting terrorism, and mr obama shouldn't have think in is deepest mind of writting nigeria name on the black list, unlike the people of iraq, pakistan,iran and many of them which are really known for terrorism , not a country like nigeria
Their is crime all over the word, the level of crime especially robbery in the USA in more serious to compare with here in nigeria, one thing i want you to know is that nigeria is one of the most peaceful country in the world despite the level of insecurity we're still in peace. We all know that Nigeria is not a terrorist nation soooooooo united states should go ahead and blacklist us. NO WAHALA.

The attempt to bomb a US-bound aircraft by Umar Farouk or whatever they call him is not enough to put the nation in the blacklist. Not only nigerian's that scam american same as we're not the only one that traffic drugs into their country its everywhere, so i think you don't have a point there. NO ACTION IS JUSTIFIED.

Nigeria leaders are not impressive yea we know we're not lucky for that but we all know that NIGERIA is not a terrorist nation. YOU KNOW IT, I KNOW IT, WE KNOW IT. THE frosty relationship between the United States and Nigeria as the result of China’s interest in Nigeria’s oil became more glaring mid last year when one of China’s three major energy companies, China’s state-owned National Offshore Oil Corporation began talks with senior Nigerian officials to buy large stakes of oil blocks in Nigeria, so they've posed a threat to the United States (US), Nigeria being its fifth largest supplier of petroleum. This as well may be the reason for the blacklisting of Nigeria and placing it on the global terror watch list.

Mr. Reality, think deeply before you say I have no point because you have none either. I was not saying our actions in scamming and drug dealing in addition to Mutallab was the reason to add us to the list. What I am trying to say here is that there are enough reasons and signs made the United States add Nigeria to the terrorist list.

Americans will tolerate anything besides terrorism. Out of the countries that that are on the terroritst list, how many of them are nations known for drug dealing, none besides Nigeria. Out of the countries that are listed on that terrorist list, how many of them known scamming/419ing nations, none besides Nigeria.

Do you actually think that the U.S. wanted to set up AFRICOM in Nigeria just to monitor the crisis in Niger Delta. Think Twice. When Boko Haram occured in July 2009, close to 700 people died and countless people were displaced. Right after Mutallab, in the same Bauchi State where Boko Haram had their raid, 38 people died out in some religious crisis. Let me ask any well thinking Nigeria, do you think that an area like Bauchi is not prone to breeding terrorists and Al-Qaeda related people.

With the above information which is public a well as other information which I am sure the CIA, homeland security, etc will release to the President now, won't you as a President of a country that swore to protect his citizens not add a country like Nigeria to that terrorist list?
