    It might even be cheaper than sending troops just to send cash and buy the girls?
    You don't choose not to send troops because someone might get hurt.

    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.”

    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.
    It's sad, but it's really not our problem. We don't need to get into another armed conflict on another continent, we already have 1 infinity war as is.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Nigeria school attack: why US hasn't sent Special Forces to rescue girls
    IMO it is none of the USA's business in the first place. There are thousands of girls here in the USA that need rescued first.

    Well.....for one we don't know how many girls they actually took. 2 the Nigerians say the Leader of Boko Haram is dead. But they are a franchise and now another will take this ones place.

    Also due to the Nigerians saying they want to start up a committee to find out how many girls were taken. Who has escaped and etc. But we do have eyes in the sky out looking.

    It's not like, if it were an easy enough fix, that we wouldn't try but supposedly they've broken up the girls into small groups and spread them all over. We'd have to really commit some serious resources, and even then would have minimal success. Sometimes, no matter how hard, we have to draw a line.

    I most certainly did read it. Did you?

    Because if you had read it, you'd know that the reason she declined to list the entire organization was because a coalition of African experts begged her not to, citing the fear that "But a group of academic experts on Africa sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last month urging her not to take the step, saying it could backfire by enhancing the group's reputation among potential recruits and other militants."

    In fact, if you'd even read my entire post that you quoted you'd know that.

    That's what we said about al Qaeda in the 90's. It became our problem.
