Is Armed conflict an Option for Southern Cameroon?

Recently a friend sought my thoughts on the call by a section of Southern Cameroonians to wage armed for selfish determination. I said I support the struggle of South Cameroon because I believe it is based on a genuine grievance whether real or perceived. South Cameroon has many options and rights including starting its own force (may not be an army); it equally has an option to wage armed conflict in search of self-rule. Now, not all that is right and possible is good and strategic. One needs to, for instance, ask, at what cost and for what end will war be? What are the chances of meeting the object of the struggle of South Cameroon through waging armed conflict? War is and should always be a last resort. As at now the questions should be: What is the cost of armed conflict? What do the people of South Cameroon want to achieve? Are there other alternatives to achieve it? What can they achieve through such alternatives and within what time? etc. I guess as at now investing in such alternatives as diplomatic pressure may have higher reward than armed conflict.
