    I agree with you that this became a Media induced outcry and Hollyweird has jumped in.
    You have no idea what Sharia says.

    There's not much we can do by sending in troops to rescue the Nigerian school girls, because soon as they see soldiers they'll start slaughtering them. If the Boko Haram separate themselves from the girls holding area, we could theoretically drone attack them but we'd need a coordinated ground assault to eliminate all threats and take control of the rescue.

    Now, Intelligence indicates that many of the girls may have been split up into small groups and moved to different locations, and these locations are remote and difficult to penetrate.

    Instead of searching for one group of 250 girls, law enforcement and the military are likely looking for 25 groups of 10 girls or 50 groups of five girls. This poses an enormous challenge and diminishes the possibility of a dramatic rescue that will bring this crisis to a quick close.

    The campaign to apply pressure by reaching out through social media, using the Twitter hashtag '#BringBackOurGirls,' protests have spread across the world calling for the Nigerian government to take stronger action and for the international community to help.

    The point is, what can we do and should we be trying to help more?

    I'm not sure this countries citizens (Hollywood), gov't and Media know when and what to fight.
    We do better not to transmit our movements...Boko Haram has access to the news outlet just as you.
    The girls are not like the plane at the bottom of the deep blue sea. Their movements can be detected.

    Boko Haram’s New War Song: “We Will Enter Churches and Slaughter Christians…”



    In a video explaining how they attacked Giwa Barracks earlier this month, the Nigeria-based Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, also sang songs about how they plan to continue targeting Christians, churches, and the country at large.


    Sahara Reporters brings you the latest from the Religion of Peace (emphasis mine):

    As a result of attacks by Boko Haram and “uncontrolled reprisals” by Nigeria’s security forces, there have been more than 1,500 deaths in the country in 2014 so far, according to Amnesty International. Boko Haram is responsible for more than half of the killings, however, which includes “scores of schoolchildren who have been the victims of deliberate attacks.”

    According to the United States Institute of Peace, Boko Haram believes "the politics in northern Nigeria has been seized by a group of corrupt, false Muslims" and therefore wants to wage a war against them, the Nigerian government, military, and civilians in order to "create a "pure" Islamic state ruled by sharia law." .....snip~

    Here was what I said back on March 31 of this year. I had this up in the Africa thread back then.


    These guys need to be put down like a rabid dog. They don't care who they go after. Muslim, Christian, or other. What say ye?

    I'm not big on War or revenge but my tolerance and patience is not without end. Once I decide there's an enemy to defend against, I come after them like the gates of hell.

    I'm sure there's intel gathering going on right now we're not privy too.

    We should be helping the UN to take responsibility to protect into its hands.

    Ah using the horrific kidnapping of hundreds of girls to attack political opponents... Isn't American politics fantastic?

    Speaking of which there is evidence to suggest Nigerian authorities knew there was a kidnapping threat and did nothing... Guess that's Hillary's fault as well...

    No, we cannot protect the world. But, in extraordinary circumstances we must. Not because we are the world's protector, but because we can. Those that look evil in the face and turn a blind eye are worse than the evilitself.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
