Addressing a press conference in Borno, the deputy theatre commander in charge of operations, Lucky Irabor, said the ongoing offensive led to the death of the terrorists in the past few days.

“As part of the promise of the Theatre Command to keep the public informed of our activities, this press conference has been organised to brief on the activities of the troops in the past few days,” Mr. Irabor, a major general, said.

“Accordingly, in furtherance of the ongoing offensive operations to clear Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) in the Northeast, on 17 January troops conducted a clearance operation at Shentimari general area and cleared Boko Haram enclaves and recovered 78 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition.

“Similarly, on 18 January at Chukun Gudu, troops encountered and destroyed terrorist’s camps along Jillam, Bula Butube general areas. During the exchange of fire, 10 terrorists were killed, 2 AK47 Rifles, 2 AK47 magazines, 2 solar panels and 2 GSM handsets were recovered, while 1 Isuzu vehicle was destroyed.

“On 20 January 2016, troops cleared terrorist camps/enclaves at Ngwalimiri and Gazama in Damboa Local Government Area. While conducting operations in Mufurundi village along Damboa-Bale road, our gallant troops intercepted 10 Boko Haram suspects from Bego, Mesemarri and Bale villages carrying bags containing food condiments, soaps, and other items. Suspects are presently undergoing interrogation. Also, troops had an encounter with terrorists during advance from Wajirok to Ajigin. During the encounter, 3 of the terrorists were killed.

“In a related development, troops took custody of 3 suspected Boko Haram terrorists who voluntarily surrendered themselves to Damboa Vigilante Group at Kaya village.

“During interrogation, they claimed to have been forced to join the Boko Haram terrorists group and also participated in the Group’s previous attacks at Askira and other locations.

“As about 1719hrs yesterday, 21 January 2016, ahead of Cashew Plantation near Maiduguri, an unknown civilian tried to gain access into the village but was confronted by a civilian JTF. In the process of the ensuing interrogation, he stabbed a member of civilian JTF to death but was shot by another Civilian JTF.

“In continuation of the ongoing operation, troops advancing to clear Dure village, came under Boko Haram terrorists ambush at Rugga Fulani but were cleared. During the encounter, 8 Boko Haram terrorists were killed, 2 AK47 rifles, 2 locally made Dane Guns, 3 AK47 Magazined with 38 rounds of ammunition were recovered. Similarly, a unit of troops cleared Boko Haram terrorists hideouts in Wala, Tirkopytir, and Durubajuwe villages. During the operation, troops recovered 1 rusty General Purpose Machine Gun barrel, 1 grinding machine and 1 locally made Dane gun.

“Equally, troops conducted a fighting patrol in Afe, Kudiye, Souma, Dika, Mijigeta and Mida. During the operation, the team made contact with BHT at Kudiye, Mijigete and 20 BHT were killed, while 3 rifles, 41 motorcycles were destroyed, and 370 hostages rescued and brought to Internally Displaced Persons’ camp at Dikwa.

“The terrorists sighting own troops, abandoned their families behind which include 5 women, 12 children. However, own troops killed 4 of the BHTs. The women are currently undergoing interrogation.

“Today 3 suicide bombers attempted to infiltrate into Maiduguri a kilometer ahead of Mafa roadblock. Gallant troop of the theater shot one dead, while the other detonated and in the process killed the third suicide bomber.

“The Theatre Commander Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Hassan Umaru commended the efforts of the troops and renewed call for the troops and the public to be more vigilant and security conscious at all times, particularly at check points, markets, worship centres, motor parks and schools.

“He equally appreciated the support from the public in rendering useful information on the activities of the terrorists. The public would be kept informed of the situation as the need arises.”

  • ayo

    Our nay Sayers guess who is whipping out the terrorists in the North East…Oh its Buhari who is supposed to be the sponsor of this same terrorist group..How logical hey..A great thank you to our gallant soldiers….under the command of the new military .. Not the fat gang of thieves we had under badluck Jona…

    • Kickboxer

      hahahha…..here goes a member of southern almajiri…..there goes a member of “Techincal intelligntsia”…….he is no longer defending the “technical” end of Boko Haram in Decembr 2015. Now it is “whipping out terrorists”…..

      • ayo

        Mr kickboxer I would have loved to kick your ass with your anal thinking….But I’m a lover not a fighter. You need 6 hail Mary’s to save you and your bigoted view. Their are more people that understand and can read what is going on than empty tribalists like you so thank God for that….Guess what, Should I want to toe your twisted logic, One Mr / “Dr” Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan just messed up this country with his band of robbers..from all parts of Nigeria…tribes didn’t matter during this great heist as you now think is an issue.. when they were looting for the last five years….with the assistance of a Lady called Allison Madueke and another one called Ngozi Okonjo Iweala… Oh are they from the far south?……

        Interestingly they stole all the money meant for our military to fund their opulent life style….In the process we have over 2 million IDP in Nigeria and over 30,000 killed by boko boys….Including many igbos trading and minding their own business in the north….Your oga gave the order to the NSA to blow the money as he pleased and lied to every Nigerian….

        You are part of the problem of this country but we will make sure that you do not take over the public space with you bigoted views……

        • Kickboxer

          Yesoooo…..you are very correct…..members of “southern almajiri and technically intelligentsia” are not tribalist……they are civilaaaaaaaaized!!!! and technically intelligent……that is why they are not corrupt and they know that corruption started and ended with GEJ administration. Now that Nigerians hav been well TUTORED, think BAMBOOZLED, southern almajiris like you may now go about to sing KUMBAYA!!!….monkey, ok?

          • ayo

            If you remove your bigoted cap your view may be very useful to this war on corruption and boko. The only problem is that you may just be too far gone….

          • Kickboxer

            I am for quenching corruption just like 99.99% of Nigerians. What 99.99% of Nigerians are against is a situation where Brainless Buhari, APC, and technically intelligentsia minions like you would assume the role of “holier than thou” in the fighting against corruption. You folks should stop making YEYE of yourselves and Nigerians. Again most Nigerians are not technically intelligent but very intelligent; they do not want Brainless Buhari’s Boko boys to be technically defeated. They want them to be DEFEATED.

            If you or other members of “technically intelligentsia” want to fight corruption, then dial the phone number to “intelligent Nigerian.”, Desist from using Islamists or ethnic bigots hiding under ‘fight against” corruption to desecrate our Constitution and sense of reasoning. An average reasonable can see how it all ends. AGAIN, THINKING is what is lacking. And, no, having a head on top of a shoulder does not THINKING assure….haaa

I’m sure you are a staff of stealing is not corruption commissioned to spew whatever that comes out of your warped brain.

          • Kickboxer

  • Kickboxer

    Since Boko Haram was “technically” defeated in December 2016, technically speaking this news is either a LIE, DECEIT, or brainless Buhari & APC are TECHNICALLY LYING! Nigerians demand that local & international media houses and human rights’ activists and lawyers be allowed to independently investigate LIES bing told Nigerians about defat of Boko Haram.

    Eve though heavy fighting was going on for a week, Nigeria media never announced. WE HAVE NO INDEPENDENT MEDIA!!! THEY HAVE BEEN CORRUPTED BY LYING MOHAMMED & APC.

    • nick

      you can write whatever…you can cry or wail for all we care ,we no send you! we are winning this war…..ride on our gallant soldiers..some have wished that by now the Boko boys have overran the country but to the glory of God our gallant soldiers is smoking out our common enemy.Ride on our beloved soldiers.

      • Kickboxer

        haa…the soldiers defeated Bokos within 6 weeks in March 2015 and handed over to brainless Buhari. Since then brainless Buhari and “technically intelligentsia” have “technically” defeated Bokos. That means that our gallant soldiers are now expected to technically fight defeated Bokos…..now that must be making a lot of sense….haa

            haa…..”technically intelligentsia”….what is brainless Buhari waiting to wipe them out then? Brainless Buhari & APC are trying to be paying N5000 per month to brainless Buhari’s Boko Haram members; also he budgeted N1.8billion, as against GEJ’s N580million, for feeding his BOKO boys….

      6 months of Buhari is far better than 5 wasted years of Dumbo,you can go hand Sai Buhari!

      • Kickboxer

        “Technically intelligentsia”:

        it took Nigerian forces 6 weeks, JUST 6 weeks, to run down BRAINLESS BUHARI BOKO BOYS……it is taking brainless Buhari & APC more than 7 months to BAMBOOZLE fellow TECHNICALLY INTELLIGENTSIA & minions into believing that there is a genuine attempt to finish the job.

        Brainless Buhari is simply preparing th ground to start paying HIS BOKO BOYS N5,000 or more monthly……he has budgeted N1.8 billion for Aso Rock feeding which is money for BOKO BOYS.

        Of course, members of “techically intelligentsia” would like to BAN social media….hahahaha

        • Rommel

          Is that why Dumbo could not account for over $60 billion? hahahahahahahaLol! swines

      • Burbank

        “This is nothing but military victim over defenseless civilians.”

        So now Boko Haram are the “defenceless victims” and the 20,000 innocent Nigerians that Shekau killed are the “armed terrorists”!
        Racist bigot.

        • Otile

          I know you will catch that typo very easily and try to capitalize on it. You know very well that I mean to say that it is nothing but military victory over defenseless civilians.

          I had more typos when we suffered massacres at Onitsha and Zaria but you did not point them out. Why did you play dead then?

          Stop calling me a racist bigot. I am a good Christian man, not a racist, not a bigot. Your calling me a racist bigot is like a member of the Ku Klux Klan calling a black man racist bigot. It is ridiculous. It is absurd.

          • Burbank

            Justifying the murderous acts of Boko Haram against Nigerians and calling the dead terrorists as “defenceless victims” are common traits of racist bigots like you. It is ridiculous. It is absurd.

        Otile o… Abeg make we forget they said, he said, PDP, APC etc… Before now, we were having blasts almost daily. People are safer, should be good news abi?

        • Otile

          Give me a break, you did not hear any blast anything. You are relaxing in your air-conditioned parlor in Lekki Island talking about dodging blasts. Why not say that you were hearing blasts on your flat TV? Have you been to the North East?

          My brother, don’t defend Imam. With him, the more you look the less you see.

          • Burbank

            Like those blasts that Imam Tompolo is causing all over Delta and Bayelsa with his bombings now.

          • NoBeLie

            Ehen… So you think you know me? You can’t be more wrong. Anyways, so that we are clear, I have lived in the North before and have friends in there (even in towns close to Chibok) and in the military as well.

            Back to you, have you been to the North-east? Or do you know anyone affected by BH? If yes, why not talk to them to become better informed!

      • Rufus

        and i thought you referred to another as a christian….. na wa! i expect an acidic reply.

        • Otile

          No, my brother Rufus, I never reply acidically unless I am paying an aggressor back in his own coins. Every good Christian should try to ward off evil attacks, because the devil is a liar.

          • Rufus

            Good Christian? please, at mass tomorrow, ask your vicar if Jesus ever repaid anyone with his own coins. You justify evil with Christianity……..? good christian…learn to be at peace with your enemies (perceived or real)….then you can be at peace with God

          • Otile

            I did not say I am Jesus. No oppressor can harm Our Lord, but if I do not pay you in kind you oppressors will like to exterminate us out of existence. I am a peaceful Christian man. Me and my kind have never invaded you and your people. You are the people that do not mean well to me and my people, and you know it.

          • Rufus

            by killing unarmed men and their] wives…. I am a Christian, but i know that is wrong. and the right thin to do is to simply apologise. i docent stop you from agitating. ////period. i really don’t mean well for yo, except you change. I want you in heaven, not hell.

          • Otile

            You are trying hard to sound like a Christian, but you are misguided. You said you really don’t mean well for me except I change. Change to what? I hate self-righteous hypocrites, you are worse than Satan himself.

          • Rufus

    • Kickboxer

      General Technically intelligentsia,
      when are we distributing N5,000 to Brainless Buhari Bokos? I ask because if we do not pay the mony the Bokos would resume hostility. I hard that the N1.8billion budgted for Aso Rock food, as against Gej’s N580 million, is for th leadership of Brainless Buhari’s Boko leaders…..

      • Burbank

        And you are very silent that Dasuki diverted $2.1bn meant for weapons for the military to fight Boko Haram!

        • Kickboxer

          APC & brainless Buhari can only bamboozle “technically intelligent” minions like you.

          For reasonable people, this is the question: HOW DID APC PAY FOR THEIR ELECTIONS?

          It is being alleged that Dasuki paid about N15billion to politicial parties and media houses.
          I do not condone corruption and if anybody is found, based on rule of law, stealing he or she should answer. That stated, Nigerian forces defeated Bokos within 6 weeks in March 2015 and GeJ conducted elections.

          HOW DID APC PAY FOR THEIR ELECTIONS? WHY ARE WE NOT DISCUSSING THE MONEY/SUV CAR BRAINLESS BUHARI RECEIVED FROM DASUKI

    Great efforts and gallantry from our troops. It’s a difficult task but have achieved so much in so little a time. We now can see what our troops achieved with comparatively minimal damage / loss. We pray day and night for your absolute victory over these Devils and return home and to your families in good health and spirit.
    We all know what the war was some four months ago and now, except for those living afar or out of this world. It’s surely nearing the end with the remnants of BH terrorist continuously being flushed out, killed and captured. For those of us who either live or have loved ones in the northeast know that the war has technically been won and moved into the next stage of clearing the remnants of the BH terrorists as well as the rebuilding of settlement which has began in quite a few of the towns. Businesses and activities, local, inter-states and across the borders into neighboring countries has improved considerably. Well done all and may God bless your efforts.

  • 9JA IS DYING DEAD UNDER BUHARI

    Nduka Irabor, Tunde Thompson and other
    Journalists cried when Buhari jailed them. Tai
    Solarin the Activist cried when Buhari sent
    him to jail for publicly opposing him. Fela
    Ransome Kuti, the Musician, cried when he
    was jailed by Buhari. Parents and friends of
    Barth Owoh, Ojuolape and others cried when,
    they were sent to early graves. Former
    Governor of Imo State, the late Sam Mbakwe
    cried at Buhari’s marginalization of his people
    when PTDF was unable to construct a single
    road in South West, South South and South
    East whereas, the same PTDF under Buhari
    regime constructed more than 98 roads in
    the Northern part of Nigeria. Ambrose Ali
    cried when Buhari locked him up for nothing.
    Michael Ajasin cried and even became blind
    thanks Buhari. Civil Servants cried when he
    retrenched 53,000 workers. Nigerians cried
    while queuing for their portions of scarce
    commodities like rice, sugar, salt, milk and
    toiletries. Students cried when he re-
    introduced payment of school fees. Our
    Economy cried when he increased external
    debts by $3bn in 1year. Lagosians are still
    crying from road traffic because He cancelled
    the Metro line Railway Project. Nigerians have
    cried for more than 17 years of military rule
    resulting from Buhari’s criminal regime. What
    goes around, comes around. Tears never
    begin flow from Buhari’s eyes yet. All
    Nigerians need is credibility not tears The

    Bauchi, during 2011 post-election violence,
    that erupted, following Buhari’s post-election

    day , also cried The N2.8 billion stolen by
    Buhari and trillion of naira that disappeared
    under him in PTF is fresh in our memories, we
    shall never forget and forgive him. We have
    recycled leaders enough. Nigeria is a country
    with more than 160 million people why
    recycle leaders like Buhari? Today are Nigerians not regreting
    -is History not repiting itself again TODAY? With Metuh in handcuff’ over money donated to his party?

You either have senseless politicians stealing the country dry or some primitive idiots sponsoring unrest just for the fun of it while the rest of the world is moves on….and we claim to have smart, intelligent, most educated, most travelled people on the continent?…What a joke!..

            If you have read my postings on this forum, I have always been passionate NIGERIA this is why I support whole heartedly what the current government is trying to do against all the odds. The fact that it is a messed up country does not mean I hate my country. I am angry that it has been messed up by a few greedy. I see what the masses go through on a daily basis and I am mad about it because I have had the opportunity to travel the world and see what other governments do for their people. We need to support this government and let us for once say no to corrupt public officials, let us refuse to call them chiefs or what not is all I am asking for….As a power industry professional are you proud of what Nigeria has been doing in this area?….NEPA destroys modernity in Nigeria by destroying very expensive equipment in the healthcare sector and others due of the surges we have to put up with. Equipment (CT scansners, MRIs, etc,,) that help us diagnose patients properly are destroyed regularly in Nigeria and our healthcare is rendered useless as a result. Why is power such a problem after all these years of generating and distributing electricity?. Is it that we are so daft that we cannot do anything right?.

        • Otile

          My brother Rufus, you know that Jonathan is gone, there is no point holding him responsible for all the woes of Nigeria. More than anything what is dogging him is the ethnic group he came from. If Jonathan was Fulani or Yoruba he would be hailed as the best president Nigeria ever had despite all those corrupt practices going on before, during, and after his administration. However the civilized world is rewarding him with awards for trying his best for ungrateful Nigeria. Tribalism is the main problem killing Nigeria. I understand you hate me more when I call you my brother because you too hate my tribe. That is the reality we found ourselves in Nigeria. We are one Nigeria simply because of oil from the Niger Delta. Nevertheless peace be to you my brother and to others who hate us based on tribalism. God is in charge.

          • Rufus

            Ok????? so, he is an Ijaw man now abi?… he is no more a biafran abi? but you want to annex bayelsa as well?… but if it was a berom man, you will still call him a northern Hausa man abi?… please, and please, stop exposing you folly the more. The only reason why biafra want to be is because their eyes are on the Niger Delta..period. Stop calling me your brother, because you don’t mean it. You don’t know where i’m from an simply because i oppose your logic, you believe i hate igbo and so on. Are you saying any igboman that does not support that cause is an enemy? na wa for you…..

          • Otile

            No vex my brother Rufus. For some reason I have a hunch that you are my Christian brother, I may be wrong, let God forgive me. You are the person falsely claiming that Biafra wants to annex Bayelsa because of their oil. You are fatally wrong, Abia alone has more oil than Bayelsa and Ondo combined. Bayelsa has only six wells 4 of which are owned by the Northerners and Yorubas, yet you will never admit that the Northerners and Yorubas are the ones annexing Bayelsa. What do you know about the Niger Delta? For your information a bulk of Igboland is in Niger Delta. The only Yoruba part in Niger Delta is Ondo. Why do you haters like to hate the Igbo out of existence. None of you haters acknowledge that Igbo has a drop of crude oil. You are lying to your soul, man,

            At your command I will stop calling you my brother henceforth, after I have nothing to gain or loose for seeing you as my Christian brother. From the way you have presented yourself to me, by having you as a friend I need no more enemies. Odigba.

          • Rufus

            Northerners, Bayelsa, Yorubas, Niger Delta, Igbos… this is the line of your communication. You are confused….either as a tribalist or a southerner…… So, Since when did Enugu, Abia, Ebonyi, Anambra become ND aside from the Imo we know” you can say you have oil, which is also available in Kogi and Bornu, Lagos gives more support to all offshore sites than the whole costal states put together… its not about availability, its about positioning. You can have all the oil, someone else will do the profiteering…. The biggest enemy of the igbo is himself….. Self destruct is a natural button to you guys. Biafra will not happen in this generation or the next. if you want to go, just cross over to Sao Tome. Goodnight…..

          • Otile

            I hate your empty boasting. Your distortion of the Niger Delta is woeful, try again. It is easy for you to claim that crude oil is awash in Ogun, Osun, Oyo, Ekiti, all the way to Zamfra and Katsina, but show use who is mining the fields. You are right to say that we can have all the oil, but someone else is doing the profiteering. We all know that. We in the Niger Dalta own the oil but you in Yorubaland and North are profiteering from it. That is called cheating. it is also called oppression. That is what the so called unity of Nigeria is all about. Everybody knows who is doing the cheating.

            Whatever you mean by self-destruct is your own problem. The other tribes in Nigeria are not doing better than Igbo people so you alone know what you are talking about. Whether Biafra stands or not depends on the action and reaction of the oppressors and oppressed. Sudan murdered their southern neighbors for over 22 years to steal their oil, yet the poor South managed to free themselves so did Eritrea and all powerful Ethiopia, so your opinion on that subject amounts to nothing.

    one thing that never ceases to amaze me is that almost everyone that comments under the cover of a screen name always seems self righteous. Face to face, none of them can tell what they say here to the face of their perceived enemies be it hausa, fulani, igbo, yoruba, christian or muslim. For all those in this category, myself included if so, are cowards!!!! Today, you may buy tomato from a hausa man, enter the danger of a yoruba man, but spare parts form an igbo, eat the beef of a fulaniman, yet you spew the hatred of the devil.

    • Otile

      My brother, there are good and excellency in every ethnic group, there are evil and wickedness in every group too. No ethnic group possesses monopoly of evil or good qualities.

      It is good that we point out what is bad in the society. There is no way an Odua or Arewa man can talk about what their people are doing wrong, all thy know is what Igbo people are doing wrong and would like to exterminate Ndigbo from the surface of the earth. This is where people like us come in. We are here to give it back to our Odua and Arewa detractors, lest they believe that their plan to exterminate Igbo is right, but God forbid.

      There has been no time Igbo people set out to wipe out another tribe, rather Igbo try to assimilate with other people amicably. Whenever their talents shine, they draw the envy of others, then friction arises, then our oppressors begin to suppress us, plot to exterminate us, and begin to accuse us of all kinds of things yet overlooking their own shortcomings. This is where I and a few good Igbo people step in to defend the race. If we keep mute the oppressors will take Igbo people to hell in a hand basket.

      My brother Rufus, your point is a good one, but there is more to tribalism than meets the eye. God bless you.

      • Rufus

        My brother? My brother?…. The Igbos killed Tafama Balewa, his wives, Ahmadu Bello, his wife, Akintila Willaims, Okotie Eboh…. without provocation. And you beat your chest saying “we” lie a demi god?… where were the igbo when Nzeogwu, with the backing of Ojukwu, committed that unnecessary act?. it was the first blood that was shed right after the independence…. Let me ask you sincerely. Will there have been a civil war if Nzeogwu had not killed those people?… the answer is No. Please, i am not you brother. You do not respect me as a human being but because you “assume” i am igbo. Every ignorant igboman thinks that all northerners are hausa…. but for those who have traded in become wise, they know that Nigeria is more complicated than 3 or 4 selfish tribes accusing each other while abandoning over 200. No one chose where he was born, no one chose his tribe. So please, before you ask God to bless me, ask him to bless every other person especially the perceived enemies….

        • Otile

          Rufus my brother, let us be open minded about that incident. Hatred has led a lot of people to label that coup as Igbo coup, but when you analyze what actually happened you will see that every ethnic group was involved in that stupid_coup. Infact a truthful person can hardly call it Igbo coup. We are told that Delta Igbo are not Igbo yet they call Kaduna Nzeogwu Igbo. Enemies used that stupid_coup as an excuse to wipe Igbo out of the earth once and for all, but God did not all them.

          My brother Rufus look at the makeup of the coupists and judge for yourself when you can still see it as a coup designed by all Igbo people to kill Nigerian corrupt leaders of old.

          People involved in that so called “Igbo coup” are:

          1. Major Chukwuma Kaduna Nzeogwu (Delta Igbo)
          2. Major Adewale Ademoyega (Yoruba) author of “Why we struck”
          3. Capt. G. Adeleke (Yoruba)
          4. Maj. Ifeajuna (Igbo)
          5. Lt. Fola Oyewole (Yoruba) author of “The reluctant rebel”
          6. Lt. R. Egbiko (Esean)
          7. Lt. Tijani Katsina (Hausa/Fulani)
          8. Lt. O. Olafemiyan (Yoruba)
          9. Capt. Gibson Jalo (Bali)
          10. Capt. Swanton (Middle Belt)
          11. Lt. Hope Harris Eghagha (Urhobo)
          12. Lt. Dag Warribor (Ijaw)
          13. 2nd Lt. Saleh Dambo (Hausa)
          14. 2nd Lt. John Atom Kpera.

          • Otile

            Rufus my brother, if Nigerians were not corrupt to the teeth how can anyone in good conscience label that coup Igbo coup? If it were not hatred for Igbo how would ordinary Igbo people be massacred for such a stupid_coup where there were more yoruba officers than Igbo?

            Actually the only reasonable solution for Nigerian hatred for Igbo is to let Igbo go their way, but as the devil would have it they would rather exterminate Igbo than let them go, but Almighty God will never all it.

          • Rufus

            I ask, if there was no coup in 1966, would there have been a civil war? Yes or No?

            When it suites you, you explain and declassify the north with several tribes and middle belt, but to advance your cause, you label them hausa/fulani and consider then one. I am not against the Igbo going their way, and i do not not care if the ND agrees to go along (which they won’t), but they can go peacefully. They cannot justify their reason for leaving with a civil war they caused by themselves. Nzeogwu was mentored by Ojukwu.

            Look at wikipedia to get the real list. At least the list the world knows, not this list you concocted to prove a point.
