    Re: Nigerian Islamist attacks spread

    I completely understand the circumstances that would be against such action. For one, the reason we have not been invited is the reason I stated we should offer assistance. If it is turned down, then we step back and wait and watch. Yes, we only import 6% of our oil from Nigeria, but when there is a disruption in the production there, the entire market is effected and prices spike across the board. My main idea would be to continue the drawdown of troops in Iraq, moving units to Afghanistan. After Afghanistan is secure enough to allow local military and police to maintain the peace, we would stage around Africa and perform drone and/or ground strikes as intelligence dictated or assistance requested by African nations.

    I understand that many have lost their stomach for war, and I am not in anyway suggesting continuous policy of invasion and regime change. But I am suggestion responsible international assistance in ridding nations of terror. The UN may or may not be part of this, but I can guarantee you, that if terror groups, such as Al Qaeda follow through with their plans to now attack the Chinese, we will have more allies in this fight. The biggest mistake we could make is to finish the fights in Afghanistan and Iraq, then retreat back into our borders. We must make a conserted effort with our allies to maintain the fight against terror whereever it may arise, lest we fall victim to our own aloofness again.

    Maybe Bobo will invite these muslim pos over to the White House for a beer and talk about it.

    Yes, I do believe Bobo is that stupid.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    I wouldn't have a problem with this at all. We should definitely offer assistance if their government requests it. There is plenty of things we can do to assist them that doesn't involve an all out invasion.

    So when Obama doesn't do this, does that mean you are that stupid instead for thinking it?

    Why should the UN be involved in any way? Nigeria has been a stable democracy (for African standards) for a long time. It is not the job of the UN (or anyone else) to meddle in the internal affairs of another nation unless asked or forced to do so.

    On top of that it is funny how you are not pissed at the Christian terror in the country.. I guess burning of children because they were "witches" is just a okay for the US right...
