Q: "Why does a dog wag its tail?"
A. "Because a dog is smarter than its tail. If the tail were smarter, the tail would wag the dog."
The Nigerian situation has been going on for years, and Washington never paid any attention until now. You can just see Robert DeNiro putting together the film clips for state-controlled media when you watch them.
Google "wag the dog" watch online free to watch the movie.
A great, largely forgotten, movie, probably because it was a movie about a corrupt president that came out during the Clinton years.
BS argument. The slaughter of Christians in Nigeria is more than worth going to war for, unlike Iraq and Afghanistan. Some things are worth fighting for.
I don’t doubt the kidnapping but I do question the sudden interest of Washington.
And this is not about Christians as far as Moochelle and company is concerned. They are going to compartmentalize this into a "war on women" narrative. Did you hear Moochelle mention the word "Christian" in her photo op?
Because someone made a movie once about a fabricated humanitarian crisis, that proves that all humanitarian crises are fabricated.
SOLID LOGIC! WIN!
You’re right, but you might change your tune just a bit when the SEALs free the girls, and the ‘Kill Osama effect’ happens all over again.
This has been going on for years. Why the sudden interest?
Typical example of Liberals projecting onto others what they do themselves.
All you heard about going into Iraq, was we are going in for oil.
Then why all of a sudden interest in what is standard throughout the entire Muslim world? Nigeria has tons of oil.
One of my favorite movies. Described the Clinton Administration’s foray into Kosovo perfectly. I see Obama doing the same thing. He needs something to distract the sheeple from his record low poll numbers and Obamacare disaster. And the MSM are his willing accomplices.
I doubt most of those girls will ever be free again. They’re probably already dead or spread halfway across the planet by now.
And by “war”, you mean a #celebrityhashtag campaign, of course.
The time to save those girls was when they were burning boys. Unfortunately they were Christian boys and not worthy of democrat concern. In fact I doubt the democrat concern for these girls is all that great. They’re nothing more than another political issue to the democrats.
And you can make sure they will never mention the word “Islam.”
I love the first hour of the film. Around the second act, the wheels start to come off a little bit.
Funny, Mamet wrote that when he was still a lib.
If we had invaded Saudi Arabia in the 1950’s when they first started nationalizing the oil fields, most of the current problems in the world wouldn’t exist today.
I just noticed the ‘pansy’ design on her outfit.
It captured the attention of white liberal media elites because is it helpless black girls, and we know the media patronizes both blacks and females. That’s all.
“Hate to miss the beans!”
What was the name of the Bruce Willis movie dealing with this same theme? Saw a half hour of it never forgot how damn close it was to fight in Africa. (He had better equipment, though).
“What was the name of the Bruce Willis movie dealing with this same theme?”
Tears of the Sun?
The effort to rescue these girls is good, although most likely futile. This was done almost a month ago, yet their own government of Nigeria did not see a reason to ask for help. I heard many nations just now in communication with Nigeria on this topic have been stunned as to how little information they have bothered to accumulate. No one seems to know the exact number taken, or the names or ages. There are no “Go To” people serving as fonts of data until just now. It’s almost as though either their own government did not care or was dare I say, benefiting monetarily from the completed sales into slavery. This is one of the worst Black on Black mass crimes I’ve ever heard of in the 21st Century.
I know these are Christian girls, but the narrative requires that fact to be omitted, as well as the fact that Boko Haram is Moslem jihad group.
Your dead on.
Obama must be pretty sure this won’t be too difficult to accomplish.
The press is setting it up for him.
1998 or 1999...I remember a guy in my class talking about it then.
