    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.
    I don't advocate getting involved in any foreign business.

    It is not our concern, costs us tons of money, and gets us nothing.

    I disagree. We have no right, other than war, to enter another country with military forces without their permission. Who do you think we are??

    My comment was self explanatory and correct.

    That is my thought... we enter to do good, it doesn't generally work out and then we get the hate.

    Hey, PG!

    You are exactly correct.

    Money only buys tepid friends until the money runs out.

    We always get screwed.

    Until you hear self-incrimination on anything from Kerry/Obama/Holder/Lerner/etc, you won't be satisfied.

    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.
    Have DEMs started another war of choice like GWB with all of the inherited World hot spots?
    Has there been one time when GOPs have backed the Presdident on foreign policy, just for issue starters?
    Even bin Laden was muted at best, with far righties going off on Obama anyway, giving Bush credit in spite of his Tora Bora problem.

    How many extra "serious" committees did we see with the three Beirut Reagan's, when Tip O'Neill didn't play these games.

    Looks like the ACA water spicket has run dry .

    In this case, it's not about making friends. It's about sending a loud-and-clear message that if you kidnap 300 children? Thunder, lightening, and all hell will break loose on you and yours.

We focus on every single issue plaguing us domestically, once those are adressed, then and ONLY THEN can we once again begin helping the world.
    The UN

    The last I heard is that the girls would be sold for $12 each. The UN deals with bananas not cash when it comes to young girls.

    How many bananas would equal $12 dollars ?

    Human beings that care about the fate of 200 abducted young girls?
