    I see you've caught up to Caqntor's technique of false-equivalency.
    If Kerry is talking, he's lying. He's a miserable sack of **** left in the sun for days.

    Guess that shows you it's not a party line issue. My answer is to use diplomacy, that's kinda what we have a State Department for.

    ....also he says NOTHING about not trying to help them. Nothing...
    The 2 sentences together...concluding that there's nothing we (Obama) can do.

    It was the impression I got from his post. He said no. So ok...I cant tell people what they think.

    There is no need to share in their 419 scams.
    If you want to argue that, it's your business.

    However, arguing that Nigeria should be treated the same as a western liberal democracy is asinine. It's like arguing that a child should be treated as an adult because they're both people.

    ...... and since we're there saving the girls, might as well rescue the oil companies. I mean, since we would already be there and all.....

    And while I agree we should do that I am also wary of us entering into another conflict. We have our own problems. We have massive problems that those resources, or spending, could be used on HERE. We have a D- rating for or National Infrastructure. Our own nations is falling apart. We have homeless, an open southern border, gangs. Jeez... send in the SEALs to deal with MS13, the Cripps and Bloods first. Yes, the world has damn hard issues. They need to sort them out on their own.
