In Sir General Rupert Smith's,. The Utility of Force, he made it clear that the days of conventional warfare are over and that conflicts henceforth will be fought by non conventional forces comprised of civilian voluntareers arranged along tribal, religious and ideological fronts. If a war is declared today by the Federal Govt it will be on ethnic nationalities wanting to leave the colonial contraption. Unlike 1966, which saw the Igbos rightly not getting any sympathies from their co-nationals in the south, the second civil war will see to several alliances formed to break free from the Fulani hegenomy. The first victims will be Nationals in the Nigerian Army belonging to the wrong tribe. These officers and men will mostly likely resign or defect. The second civil war will be no joke. It will be Yugoslavia and Rwanda wrapped up in one bloody fest. Alliances will be fickle and redrawn severally as the protracted stalemate lingers. Abuja will rely on Sahelian jihadist bands, mercs and Muslim coalition alongside Israel and China. Igbos will eventually realign with the Fulani after being rejected by the Niger Delta Republic . The Yoruba nationalists will battle his Muslim brothers who will align with Sokoto to continue the subjugation under the Khalifate. The Christian middlebelt will later forge an alliance with Sokoto to preserve the Nigerian project to stem off their inevitable genocide by the fanatical Muslim north. Only the Niger Delta can leave Nigeria easily. The only problem we will face is Igbo expansionism which will become glaring when they enter an alliance with the Muslim north .
