    So be the policemen of the world. We tried that, failed miserably. Cost thousands of lives and trillions of dollars.

    Send in Ted Nugent and friends with two helicopters.



    If he doesn't come back, no biggie in any case.

    Not our problem, and our involvement will do nothing to stop future incidences.

    The Shah of Iran did nothing to solidify the US as a future partner, now did he?

    Those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it.

    Fell free, though, to spend your own money and hire some mercs to send over.

    We shouldn't do anything.If Russia, China, UK or some other countries wish to intervene then let them. I do not wish for some other country to come into mine under the guise of saving someone. There are all kinds of horrible **** that goes on in the world, we can not stop every single one of those things nor should we

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The Obama administration will send military, intelligence and law enforcement advisors to Nigeria to help the beleaguered government find and rescue more than 270 teenage girls who were abducted by the Boko Haram terrorist group last month, the White House said Tuesday.

    The team will share U.S. intelligence and provide investigative help, not military force, in the search for the students, who were kidnapped April 14 from a rural high school in Nigeria's Muslim-dominated northeast.

    The deployment will mark the first public American assistance in a case that has sparked international outrage. The U.S. announcement came after the leader of Boko Haram vowed in a video to sell the girls as slaves, and after gunmen reportedly took at least eight more girls from another village overnight.
    This is exactly what should happen at the present time. It's been several weeks. We can't send in special ops to swoop them up and bring them home . . . but we can help bring the perps to justice.

    As we should.

    I could defend our need to be the 'policemen of the world' but that isn't even relevant. The question is merely should the United States intervene to rescue these girls if possible and the answer should be yes. It isn't contingent upon whether Russia or China are willing to do the same thing.

    You don't have to be a globalist to care about what happens to people in other geographic localities. Not that 'globalist' is a dirty word.

    You think these girls being kidnapped by animals is the only bad thing going on in the world?

    Not that 'globalist' is a dirty word.
    It is if you actually care about your country's sovereignty.
