    What did you think was going to happen? You report that we're using manned ISR and suddenly everyone agrees that these particular 250ish hostages are more important than the millions of IDP's in Syria, victims of ethnic cleansing in C.A.R., or thousands of sex-slaves in the U.S.?
    The thread is about the specific kidnapping in Nigeria. Now, I thought I made that clear at the beginning of the thread, that I wanted to keep it about that and not start with the politics related to our own country?

    No, if you disagree with the action, that's fine. Say so, but this isn't about US kidnappings. It is different because it is related to terrorism.

    Sending a plane overhead doesn't make a crime more heinous. It simply makes it better collected on.
    The link I posted says it's drones.

    Actually it says both:

    ...A senior U.S. official says at least one Global Hawk surveillance drone is in use, in addition to manned MC-12 aircraft....

    If there were over 200 young Christian girls kidnapped by Muslims from a school in the US I feel confident the government would act and people would be outraged. But that has not been the case at all, there is no comparison, which means this false analogy is an attempt to disrupt the thread and nothing more. Why is this?

    That's what I'd like to know too.

    There's kidnapping and trafficking women, which is primarily money driven, and there is raiding a school and pulling out all the girls to make a political/religious statement. Are you intentionally conflating the two to make your own "statement", or do you truly not see a difference?

    So you support the latter.

    I support neither the former nor the latter, but we are not discussing the former here, only the latter.

    So you know for a fact, this is the case? Presumably because they said so right, and they wouldn't lie?
