    Not "whatever we want". Trying to treat Nigeria the same as every other country is nonsense. Your premise is a false equivalence, making your "point" nonsense. Deal with it.

    That was from the breaking news section, with of course a mainstream source.

    Considering what those kids likely have in store for them...I would fully support Obama ordering a full scale screw the financial cost all out rescue mission.

    With...without...whatever. And our general response to the world if they didnt like it should essentially be A-kiss our ass and B-where were YOU?

    It is an independent nation recognized by the United Nations. We need to abide by international laws. My premise is valid. You are arrogant and a whiner.

    You are using a false equivalence to push BS. Nigeria, and other third world hellholes without sufficient police forces, sometimes require intervention.

    He made a series of biased BS statements- calling any of that dribble fact is bogus.

    First he says Muslims don't like educated women- the FACT is only some extremists don't like educated women.

    Next he is as clueless as can be on if these girls are alive- they have great value as slaves and brides so just killing them would seem a last resort.

    MANY women have been taken captive and subjected to unspeakable horrors only triumph and lead good, valuable lives.

    Jaycee Dugard, Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight are just a few who were subjected to terrible acts and were amazingly resilient.

    All in all I'd say this guy isn't an expert on ANY of this and is projecting his bias rather than lucid thought.

    If there was a civil war, a famine or some other such calamity I would agree with you. As bad as this issue is it is not on that level and that is why I compared it to Waco. It might not be the best comparison but it is at least on par. Deal with it.
