Ghana and The America Military Base: Let Us Be Warned! I was reminded of this issue again when Mr.
Victor Gbeho, a diplomat and adviser to the President, tried to arrest the fear of concerned Ghanaians by explaining some aspects of the issue on a local FM Radio station not long ago. My question is what is the primary objective for any country in the world of maintaining a military as an institution? I believe strongly that apart from non-traditional duties of the military, the fundamental objective of any military organisation anywhere in the world is to defend that country or geographical location against any external aggression.

Ghana Army exists in the territory of Ghana for the purpose and performance of this fundamental role, to protect the interest of Ghana, from Ghana soil, not from any other country.
At this point, scepticism prompted me to ask: Why would America want to protect its interest from the territory of another country?
Why has America chosen a Military-Base establishment in another country to protect its interest? Politically, socially and economically what do we stand to gain as Ghanaians by permitting America or any other country to put military structures and personnel on our Home Land? Speaking out this week, two Durban women said they wanted to warn others not to part with their money.
Internationally, more than people fall victim to the scam daily. A Durban woman in her fifties, Stacey not her real namewho had lost her husband after 32 years of marriage, became a target.

An unsuspecting tourist spots a wallet or packet of cash on the ground. The scammer picks it up and asks if it belongs to the tourist, showing a wad of currency, and tries to get the tourist to touch it. Another person approaches and claims the wallet belongs to him, then accuses the tourist of trying to steal it.
When the tourist takes out his money, they grab it and flee. The visitor is often taken to a dimly lit back room and given a menu with small print. When the bill arrives, the host leaves and the establishment sends very large men to force the visitor to pay an exorbitant bill before leaving the premises or face assault.
The student invites the visitor to view the artwork at an art studio or gallery and will pour tea and provide snacks while introducing their art. The art student will then pressure the visitor to buy artwork and demand compensation for the hospitality shown.
The same scam is used by rug salesman in many countries. The stranger leaves and returns with a police officer or someone posing as one. The bag may contain drugs or other illegal items.
