Creating a Twitter hash tag really helps .... why not send the Marines instead?

The Nigerian government has now put up a 50m Nigerian naira (£182,000) reward for information leading to the location and rescue of the female students

Just send the information along with your bank account info to this address...

No. Let the farking French and Dutch fix it. There the ones that farked up Africa, why do we have to fix it?

The United States is responsible for an awful lot of human misery, but at least we never tried drawing lines through Africa.

The abduction of more than 200 girls in Nigeria will be the "beginning of the end of terror" there, says Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.

Obummer can't do anything until after his operation. He's getting a backbone and some guts implanted.
After the fundraiser, of course.

BalugaJoe: Creating a Twitter hash tag really helps .... why not send the Marines instead?


Maybe because Nigeria is a different country and you would have to have them ask for help.

I actually read it as tourism and was shocked that someone in Nigeria said something honest.

Nigeria is not a state in USA? Nigeria hasn't asked or permitted such an action? Maybe farking Nigeria who has an army could do something similar?

All you heard was just  USA USA USA! of course. Your type is in every thread concerning war.

Yeah, thats why they speak English in Nigeria...

Also you did. Liberia is a bigger shiathole than most countries in Africa.

Has the US been sending aid to Nigeria prior to the kidnapping?  The situation didnt start there and it doesnt end with a rescue.

Normally I agree, but social media is actually something that can matter now a days. Oh, and the US actually sending aid helps a lot too. But it doesn't mean much if people do not know, hence the hash tag nonsense. It's also a very easy way to spread the word without getting news media involved.

Goodluck Jonathan has a unique set of skills...

First and foremost seems to be his ability to wear a hat.
 
2014-05-08 06:00:28 PM  
What happened is sad but something being sad does not automatically make it our problem.

Still what I wouldn't give to be a fly on the tent flap at the meeting when the kidnappers came up with this plan.

"OK Abdul I have this idea, don't call me crazy again until you hear me out"
 
2014-05-08 06:02:38 PM  
So to get this straight, people want the US to send troops into africa to fight terrorists despite what the host country itself wants?
 
2014-05-08 06:04:25 PM  
Maybe we can trade Mrs Obama for those 200 girls?

Gee I don't know, maybe because it's blatantly against international law and the U.S. constitution. Oh, right the right only cares about one amendment.

Make that half of one amendment.

Africa was farked up before the Europeans came.  Anyway, I suspect "drawing lines" was a lot less significant than the slave trade in bad things Europeans did to Africa.

TheShavingofOccam123: They're already raped and dead. Give them the decent Muslim burial these butchers didn't give them and move on.



Burial? How do you know the raped dead bodies didn't end up in a stew pot? Can that be given a burial?

Also, the girls were originally Christian, that's why the muslims took them. Non muslims are not considered humans by muslims.
 
2014-05-08 06:20:50 PM  
I don't know. I'll bet African miltary justice will be at the end of machete and frontloader crushing the bodies of the ISLAMIC kidnappers.

Well to be fair, Africa was not exactly unicorns and rainbows before European colonialism. What I would add to that statement however is that it most likely wouldn't be as bad as it is today if not for the colonial legacy.

Colonialism in Africa was basically a hammer that took an already broken vase and then smashed the shards into even tinier pieces.

I say we wait until they sell them. That many girls dumped on the market at once will collapse prices. We can save them for a song!
 
2014-05-08 06:35:54 PM  
I imagine some Spec ops guys are deeply involved in rapid training right now, waiting for a go signal. But they need a workable target. If the rebels are thinly dispersed, tracking down the girls and rescuing them one at a time is a  near-impossibility.  And what ROE do you use? "Kill every adult male in region X unless he has the protection of a live girl he's surrendered to, to exchange for his life?   Not workable.

If I was rich as Gates or Buffett, I'd whip out a checkbook and bankroll a new school for EVERY ONE of the missing girls.  Tuition would be free, with meals and medical care, and girls and women would be welcomed, and the entire grounds protected by armed American contractors with itchy trigger fingers. The way you counter the ignorant bastards is to out-populate them with educated women and young men. You kill 200 innocents trying to better themselves? Fark you, we'll build 200 more schools, give them at least as many resources as we would an army,  and fight hate with reason. In a generation, your kind will go extinct.
