When the feds burst through the door with weapons drawn, the rebels should have skipped the light fandango.

dahmers love zombie:
Boko Haram means "Western Knowledge is Forbidden".  Or, more generally "Knowledge is Forbidden".

Boko = Books
Haram = Forbidden

Personally, I'd like to see every member of, and supporter of, Boko Haram stuffed into a silo and shown what a fuel/air device looks like up close.

THIS.  These guys are not fun.  Not fun for non-Muslims, not fun for other Muslims.  They want to kill the present in the form of their living countrymen, and kill the past in the form of their country's precious historical heritage.  They are basically the black Taliban, just as stupid and violent and destructive.  As evil as killing is, they have it coming.

My father made an almost identical joke the other night after hearing the news. The oddest thing is that he grew up before Procol Harum, and he listens almost exclusively to Classical music.

NostroZ: Seriously though...

Nobody cares to discuss this war between blacks and arabs?   Two favorite groups to discuss... what gives?

Does there have to be a Jew or Caucasian somewhere in that ethnic soup for anyone to care???

No, but if they were Christians we'd be running a pledge drive to raise money to fight them faster than you could say "Kony."
