    Against my usual stance of nonintervention, it is the moral thing to do to provide for their rescue on the condition that we have the location of their whereabouts.

    I think this is so egregious that we should send in special forces, hunt them down, capture them and turn them over to the government, or kill them dead. With permission of the government of course. And nothing formal. "Advisors," if that makes sense.

    Irrelevant. Nigeria is not a liberal western democracy.

    ONly some Muslims. You know that there have been Muslim countries with women PResidents right?

    Most are likely dead by now the rest, traumatized.
    Actually they are valuable as they were likely kidnapped for sale.

    Also, there's nothing Obama can do.
    Actually there is a ton the US can do.

    What is wrong with Nigeria that you think should enable us to do what we want to regardless of their wishes then?
