    Well that's my point. We're not talking about a deployment of a few five man teams. We're talking about a significant commitment.

    Yes, but we know the dangers of ignoring a potential threat. Terrorists like to spread their crazy ideologies. Obviously the Nigerian government is corrupt and incompetent. They are JUST as guilty for these atrocities because they ALLOW them to happen and turn a blind eye. The ONLY reason why they are paying attention to this is because they are getting international pressure, and I don't see that as a bad thing at all.

    I know the government is corrupt, and I've been saying that all along, so what's your point with this? This is situation is still different than the situation in Syria. Obviously, this group who committed this kidnapping ARE bad guys, regardless of whether or not the government is also bad.

    Not according to the New York Times and the State Department, if you read the article..With that sort of disinformation how can anyone know what's going on in places like Nigeria?
