    Sorry, but not similar.

    Yes, I agree. I hate that we try to buy and/or pay these countries off. We call it aid, but who is it really aiding is what you have to ask yourself.

    Somehow I thought you'd say that.

    Well, you must admit that you would rather live here than in Nigeria, correct?

    This will all boil down to drug trade. Watch the guys video. He's geeked out of his goard. The girls are just for poer and side money and as usual religion plays the excuse for violence as it always has.

    They are pretty much established as a terrorist organization and have made quite a few attacks apparently.

    Islam is a lie. Muslims don't believe the same God as Jews and Christians. Islam is a false, demonic "religion" of hate. Muslims practice taqiyya. Do you know what that means, that's part of the problem. Muslims like to say that they believe in Jesus but only as a prophet not God. Muslims believe that Islam is a lie. Muslims practice taqiyya. If you don't in the end times Jesus will come back and deny His divinity, deny the Resurrection, deny the cross and say the whole thing was a hoax. Muslims believe that when Jesus comes back He will say that He is a Muslim and break all the crosses. Does this sound like the Jesus of the Bible? Of cause not! Muslims will never talk about that.
    Muslims will use the West's freedom, laws and PC culture against it and for the benefit of Islam. Muslims will come as sheep but they are like ravenous wolfs.
    Pray for understanding, read the Qur'an and the Bible and you will see the truth that Jesus is our Lord and Savor. Muslims don't want you to know the truth. I can't count the how many times the "religion of peace" had deleted my posts. Everything I need to know about Islam, I learned on 9/11.
    Even our own leaders bend over backwards trying not to offend the practitioners of the "religion of peace".
    All over the world Muslims are fighting their neighbors be they Jewish, Christian or other Muslims. Does that sound peaceful to you?
    We should invade their counties, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. Ann Coulter after 9/11.
    What are they afraid of? The truth? I'm not going anywhere. I'll keep writing.
    Jesus Christ is the only way. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savor. Repent while there is yet time and pray that your name is in the book of life at judgment.

    I really, REALLY cannot understand where all the negativity about this comes from... The real point is that it educates people about what is happening and when the international community is against something, it does put pressure on the government to do something, just as my links state.
    Looks like Goodluck is really concerned about those girls. Vice, you know, not looking bad for the elections next year.

    Actually Boko Haram will straight up execute you for that crap. Smoking, drinking, drugs, etc. The drug trade in Nigeria is on the coastline, but Boko Haram is centered up in Borno.


    Nope, Ahmed Shekau is just no-kidding real-world, bat-**** crazy.

    Does not change the fact that the web campaign did no harm. In fact, it's even better that it's already out there. Thank goodness for the internet!
