Liberia’s current woes began when the Association for Constitutional Democracy in Liberia (ACDL), then a Washington, DC-based pressure movement, was used as a launching pad to oust President Samuel Doe from power.
The war was said to have been planned, executed, supported and defended by Amos Sawyer, Ellen Sirleaf, Tom Woewiyu, Cyril Allen, Charles Brumskine, Romeo Horton, Chu Chu Horton, Taylor E. Major and their flunkeys. On December 24, 1989, the rebel National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL) entered Liberia through Butuo, Nimba County. Peace has since continued to elude Liberia.
Am a Ghanaian but I have been following the every event as it happened in Liberia. Charles Taylor deciding to leave government willingly as an elected President of LIBERIA to Nigeria and his arrest just minutes at the border to Cameroon when Obasnajo was about to meet that George W. BUSH man of the united States of America, I say so because he could have decided to have fought the LAUD REBELS founded and supported by the United States Government. While I do not support the crimes done by Charles Taylor its my opinion that every single person who was involved in the WAR in Liberia like current president of Liberia Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Amos Sawyer, Tom Woewiyu, Cyril Allen, Charles Brumskine, Romeo Horton, Chu Horton, Taylor E. Major and many more should not be left out of this Trial.
Let me ask a few question here who gave out the first trench of money to found the war? Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. How much time has Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf tried to overthrow the government of President Samuel Doe? Twice and Charles Taylor succeeded the third time. What happened when Charles Taylor was about to enter Monrovia? She wanted to lead the Rebels into Monrovia. How did two commanders of Charles Taylor form their rebel group? Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf did to defeat Charles Taylor. Its a shame! What did Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf say on BBC Focus on Africa? “Level Monrovia and we will rebuild it”
And this is to all those who claim to be human rights activist, there will be NO JUSTICE UNTIL ALL THOSE INVOLVED IN THE WAR ARE BROUGHT TO BOOK AND NOT ONLY Charles Taylor
