FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SUBJECT:
COL. GHADAFI MUST BE ARRESTED, TRIED!

In light of the ongoing crisis in Libya affecting thousands of Libyans and other Africans as well as peoples from other part of the world; the TQ Harris Presidential Campaign calls on Liberians of all Faiths to offer prayers for an end to the reckless and premeditated acts of aggression.

We condemn in the strongest terms human rights violations against innocent civilians, including women and children.

We call for an immediate halt to the torture, arbitrary arrest and detention, summary execution and enforced disappearances. We condemn the abuse of women and forced conscription of young men and boys as mercenaries.

We call on the Government of Liberia to immediately recall our Ambassador from the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya as a show of support and solidarity for the Libyan people. And we commend the neighboring states for coming to the aid of the refugees.

We support the U.N. Resolutions-1970 that imposes an arms embargo and Resolution-1973 that imposes a no fly zone on Libya. We call upon the International Criminal Court (ICC) to immediately issue a Warrant of Arrest for Col. Muammar Gadhafi for crimes against humanity to include those perpetrated against the Liberian people. His complicity and tacit sponsorship of the 14-year carnage in Liberian snuffed out the lives of 250,000 innocent Liberians and left thousands maimed and psychologically damaged.

We call upon all students, civil servants, market women, the widows, opposition politicians and the friends of TQ Harris to observe 5 minutes of silence on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, at 9:0’clock a.m. in memory of those who have lost their lives at the hands of Gadhafi. The moment of silence will also be to commemorate fellow Liberians who died due to Gadhafi’s sponsorship of the Liberian Civil War and for others around the world who have been slaughtered at Gadhafi’s behest. And we must not forget victims of the Lockerbie bombing and the downed Air France commercial jet over Africa.

Everyone is a genius

Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. – A Einstein

Drawing the line in Liberia

Crimes sponsored, committed, or masterminded by handful of individuals cannot be blamed upon an entire nationality. In this case, Liberians! The need for post-war justice is a step toward lasting peace, stability and prosperity for Liberia. Liberia needs a war crimes tribunal or some credible legal forum that is capable of dealing with atrocities perpetrated against defenseless men, women and children during the country's brutal war. Without justice, peace shall remain elusive and investment in Liberia will not produce the intended results. - Bernard Gbayee Goah



Men with unhealthy characters should not champion any noble cause

They pretend to advocate the cause of the people when their deeds in the dark mirror nothing else but EVIL!!
When evil and corrupt men try to champion a cause that is so noble … such cause, how noble it may be, becomes meaningless in the eyes of the people - Bernard Gbayee Goah.

If Liberia must move forward ...

If Liberia must move forward in order to claim its place as a civilized nation amongst world community of nations, come 2017 elections, Liberians must critically review the events of the past with honesty and objectivity. They must make a new commitment to seek lasting solutions. The track records of those who are presenting themselves as candidates for the position of "President of the Republic of Liberia" must be well examined. Liberians must be fair to themselves because results from the 2011 elections will determine the future of Liberia’s unborn generations to come - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Liberia's greatest problem!

While it is true that an individual may be held responsible for corruption and mismanagement of funds in government, the lack of proper system to work with may as well impede the process of ethical, managerial, and financial accountability - Bernard Gbayee Goah

What do I think should be done?

The situation in Liberia is Compound Complex and cannot be fixed unless the entire system of government is reinvented.
Liberia needs a workable but uncompromising system that will make the country an asylum free from abuse, and other forms of corruption.
Any attempt to institute the system mentioned above in the absence of rule of law is meaningless, and more detrimental to Liberia as a whole - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Liberia's Natural Resources
Besides land water and few other resources, most of Liberia’s dependable natural resources are not infinite, they are finite and therefore can be depleted.
Liberia’s gold, diamond, and other natural resources will not always be an available source of revenue generation for its people and its government. The need to invent a system in government that focuses on an alternative income generation method cannot be over emphasized at this point - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Liberia needs a proper system
If Liberians refuse to erect a proper system in place that promotes the minimization of corruption and mismanagement of public funds by government institutions, and individuals, there will come a time when the value of the entire country will be seen as a large valueless land suited on the west coast of Africa with some polluted bodies of waters and nothing else. To have no system in place in any country is to have no respect for rule of law. To have no respect for rule of law is to believe in lawlessness. And where there is lawlessness, there is always corruption - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Solving problems in the absence of war talks

As political instability continues to increase in Africa, it has become abundantly clear that military intervention as a primary remedy to peace is not a durable solution. Such intervention only increases insecurity and massive economic hardship. An existing example which could be a valuable lesson for Liberia is Great Britain, and the US war on terror for the purpose of global security. The use of arms whether in peace keeping, occupation, or invasion as a primary means of solving problem has yield only little results. Military intervention by any country as the only solution to problem solving will result into massive military spending, economic hardship, more fear, and animosity as well as increase insecurity. The alternative is learning how to solve problems in the absence of war talks. The objective of such alternative must be to provide real sustainable human security which cannot be achieved through military arm intervention, or aggression. In order to achieve results that will make the peaceful coexistence of all mankind possible, there must be a common ground for the stories of all sides to be heard. I believe there are always three sides to every story: Their side of the story, Our side of the story, and The truthBernard Gbayee Goah
