    Kidnapped Nigerian Girls

    I know I saw another thread about this, but it is full of partisan bickering. I was hoping to start a thread that is about the Nigerian girls and the things that are being done to rescue them.

    I think it's just terrible what happened here, and SOME of the girls are missing from the video. I wonder if they're still alive. Also, I can't imagine how frustrated their parents and loved ones must feel right about now. I hear that it's quite a large area where they could be keeping these girls, so the government would naturally have problems pinpointing their location. However, I don't think there is ANY excuse for allowing these types of groups to become SO powerful to begin with, and THAT is the part that really pisses me off!

    Scared but alive: Video purports to show abducted Nigerian girls - CNN.com

    The girls sit quietly on the ground, dressed in traditional Islamic garb, barely moving, clearly scared. "Praise be to Allah, the lord of the world," they chant.
    The video, released by French news agency Agence France-Presse, purports to show about 100 of the 276 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram fighters nearly a month ago. It's the first time they've been seen since their abduction April 14. In separate shots included in the 27-minute video, a man says he will release the girls only after imprisoned members of Boko Haram are freed, according to AFP. Escaped girl recalls kidnapping ordeal Nigerian father: Nothing has been done First lady: Kidnappings 'unconscionable.' The man identifies himself as Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau. Nigerian officials disputed that claim on Monday, arguing that Shekau is dead. Other experts say the notorious terror group leader is still alive. Whoever the man in the video is, Nigeria's interior minister said, the country isn't interested in negotiating a swap anyway, according to AFP. But at a later briefing, the director of the National Orientation Agency, a government information ministry, said negotiations could be an option when it comes to rescuing the kidnapped girls.

    I heard on the radio that some or most of these girls are Christian but have now converted to Islam, completely voluntarily and without duress, I'm sure.

    Sincere prayers that the terrified girls are returned to their homes. What I'd like to see happen to those cowardly terrorists is decidedly not Christian. Real brave it is to take on a bunch of teen-age girls.

    Definitely cowards! Seems like they always go after the most vulnerable. I just wish that other governments would do MORE to prevent these groups from becoming so powerful to begin with. I feel really bad for the families of those girls, having to sit around wondering what is happening to them? That must be pure hell.

    Mrs. Obama has been most vocal about this issue, and with good cause.

    I wonder if she feels just as badly about the many youngsters killed by her husband's drone actions around the world?

    If she feels as badly, I wonder why she is silent about that?

    Henry's here to tell us how it was actually the Jews that are responsible.

    And I had such high hopes for a group whose name translates to "Education is a Sin".

    They are modern day barbarians. The only thing that has changed in the last 10,000 years for this kind of human filth is the weapons used.

    It's rooted in opposition to Western Education. Anyone who dares to send girls to schools in the places these animals control runs this risk. I cannot say here how much I dislike this particular gang of misogynist monsters hiding behind the cloak of religion without receiving multiple infractions.

    You're very welcome. Mine was not a partisan comment. At least it was not INTENDED to be such.

    I was appealing to and questioning her humanity, not her partisan alignment.

    Re: Kidnapped Nigerian Girls

    I heard yesterday that they would let the remaining girls go if their brethren were let out of prison.

    By 'remaining' I mean the ones who have not been sold off to forced marriages in other countries.

    One thing I do know is millions of Tweets don't do **** beside make people feel good about themselves..
