If this isn’t the top story of every major news outlet today, they are then somewhat complicit.

I would have put it in Breaking News. But, every time I have done that during FReepathons, it gets removed from the sidebar.

Onward Christian soldiers. I hope Nigerian Christians purge their country of Islam with extreme prejudice, despite the protestations of Barrack and the Europeans.

Islam, especially violently and wantonly militant varieties is one of the stiffer challenges for Christendom.

Still, God does not allow any problem on this green (or brown) earth that goes beyond the parameters He has set and documented.

This crap can be temporarily staved off through firepower. But it won’t dissolve until Christian missions are able to take on the problem of Islam in Islam’s own turf.

Nigeria needs to go good old-fashioned Roman on boko haram and now. This is the second or third time they have done this exact thing- kill innocent children wholesale in boarding schools. Boko haram needs to become an obscure footnote in a dusty corner of a forgotten library.

"If this isn’t the top story of every major news outlet today, they are then somewhat complicit."

The fifth-column media in the United States have been complicit with many acts of evil for decades. They promulgate wickedness, lies, and treason as mother's milk to leftist spawn.

People have tried to deal with Islam for 1400 years and for 1400 years they have failed except when they do the one thing muslims understand.

Total war and wholesale slaughter. Men, women, children, camels, goats, sheep, cattle. If it breaths kill it. If it grows, burn it. If muslims built it, destroy it.

Kill them until they say enough then keep killing until they beg you to stop then keep killing until they say to hell with islam.

That’s the one thing they understand.

The Japanese got their mind right, we can do it with muslims too.

I heard this on the radio this morning - how horrible. Prayers for those who were slaughtered and prayers for retribution of the animals that did this.

In this case it doesn’t matter, because Boko Haram rejects all education other than in Islamic madrassas.

The Christians have been forming vigilante organizations to fight back, however, so hopefully they will make another push to force the Muslims out of their country entirely.

It would be grand if Nigeria could eventually join with Angola to outlaw Islam in its entirety. Maybe with the West African nations between them as well.
