Posted on 05/13/2014 1:33:08 PM PDT by C19fan
The United States should send in special forces to rescue the hundreds of girls kidnapped by Boko Haramwhether the Nigerian government gives permission or not, according to Sen. John McCain.
If they knew where they were, I certainly would send in U.S. troops to rescue them, in a New York minute I would, without permission of the host country, McCain told The Daily Beast Tuesday. I wouldnt be waiting for some kind of permission from some guy named Goodluck Jonathan, he added, referring to the president of Nigeria.

Why, Juan, why?
hey johnny, how about we send you and your little girlfriend linda graham to nigeria? we will even let you fly the mission.
Whatever happens, it should happen without McCain suggesting something should take place, that might actually be taking place.
This guy is an utter fool.
Speculation in these instances is not helpful. It can cause your enemy to take measures that would make it hard to achieve the desired results.
McCain has been around long enough to know better than to shoot his mouth off in a situation like this. That he does it, further reveals his complete mental decay.
Every once in a while, John McCain says something that is right and correct.
Yes, we should send the Special Forces and this should have been the first thing our Cowardly President should have done.
Oh, and spare me the “It’s none of our business” crap.
Send them to his office! Please...
Juan is ready to defend everyone ... but us.
Once again, if McCain is for it, I have a red flag.
Except you don’t telegraph that to the enemy. You urge it through channels. This guy is a blithering idiot.
I agree with you, but you don’t blab it to the media.
Special Forces: Send John McCain to Rescue Nigerian Girls
"They're not all bad guys"
My red flag is that this stopped clock can be right twice per day. The only thing is, I want the enemy to be surprised, not warned in advance.
His Goodluck Jonathan comment sounds racist to me.
He knows that if the pacifist unMessiah sends in the troops, he instantly become a racist
Do we have an Aeronca Champ or Piper Cub that'll fly that far? That's about all the aircraft I want to risk to the negative ace.
Give them the intelligence and location.
How ‘bout sending special forces to free our Marine from the Mexican jail?
Right, McStain. But, we couldn’t send in Special Forces to Benghazi, to help rescue Amb Stevens and others, could we?
The united States military is not a hostage rescue service for the world.
Juan McNutz needs to shut up and sit down. This is the same moron who wanted boots on the ground in Kosovo in 1999 and in Libya in 2011.
This is the same idiot who said “ Fight with me” in 2008 and then took a dive to Obama, the one person he would NOT fight, when he should have fought.
All able bodied men in Nigeria need to be beating a path to Boku Haran’s locations and start killing every terrorist they find.
If we can point them out to them, fine, but other than that, our men should not be risked.
Hell, we lead one million plus of our own babies to the slaughter every year in America through abortion on demand, so why are these girls worth the lives of our soldiers.
Nigeria has men. Let them do their job and protect their own women.
As for Juan McLoser, he needs to go home to Arizona and look for the strawberries.
Wouldn’t that be an invasion of a sovereign country and an act of war?
I didn’t think we had a lot of “USA = World’s Policeman” advocates on this site anymore.
Obama won’t do anything to help the girls and stop the muslim terrorists.
He says it is just a matter of educationg the muslims.
Must be another case of “Workplace Violence”.
I suspect we already have an adequate number of drones in the area...
Well said, I agree with you completely.
I am tired of American forces dying for everyone else. Obama uses these guys and not long after, the special forces have all kinds of mysterious accidents.
Obama isn’t president CIC quality, so people should quit wanting him to use troops.
If such a rescue were part of a systematic effort to rid the world of Islam, I’d be all for it.
Problem is....it won’t be.
Get some of those rich hollywood liberals to donate some money and hire mercenaries
“hey johnny, how about we send you and your little girlfriend linda graham to nigeria? we will even let you fly the mission.”.......
Be sure to take Hitlary along with you.
Though we most often agree, Nope. Not this time. If you (9the general you) want America to be ruler of the world, then sending our SF makes sense. Lets be the Empire everyone says we are and stop denying it. Give the Military Worldcop badges and declare ourselves Kings.
I very much think those girls should have been rescued Day 1. By the country they are in. But we supplied and protected the people who kidnapped them. Until we get our collective sXit together and figure out if we are America under a Constitution or Rulers of the Earth, we damn well need to stay the hell out of other countries.
Not every atrocity on earth demands a US military intervention. Maybe then the rest of the planet would take care and sort its own crap out.
Unfortunately, it is none of our business.
When did the rescue of these couple hundred unfortunate young girls become a moral imperative requiring armed invasion of yet another country, a more or less friendly one this time, when we calmly stood by and watched something like 10M people murdered in civil wars in Central Africa?
Actually, of course, we didn’t watch. We ignored the slaughter.
Gosh had McCain become President, we would be at war with practically every country. Our military would be HUGE with close to 5 million most likely.
“BTW, do you consider yourself to be a Christian?”
How liberal of you to introduce a non sequitur into the debate.
McCain here reveals himself, yet again, to be a senile idiot who should have retired long ago.
You have evidence of this?
You know what, this is exactly the type of situation he would involve himself in. Why it’s for the children. Can you think of a more appealing way for him to show he cares for children, cares for Christians, and is a super-hero?
I understand why you say what you do, but I don’t know. This looks to be irresistible to me.
The problem, John, is that we do not have a stated interest in the form of policy associated with those kidnapped girls. Under what pretense would we involve the US Military in an effort to “rescue” someone?
There is no foreign policy and our military has no leadership. We are completely helpless at the moment.
It sure is a good thing that McCain didn’t win when he ran for President.
Give them the same treatment given to Ambassador Stevens who asked for help and got nothing.
Take his daughter too....please.
How about a special force of one named McCain!
It’s Nigeria’s concern and none of mine!
How 'bout sending the Marines in and just taking over Mexico. We already have many of their 'citizens' living here anyway.
It’s none of our business and I could care less, it’s Nigeria’s peoblem.
meghan the mouth going too ? great idea !
Are you aware of the special camps in North Korea for children and families, and the torture they undergo regularly? Thousands or tens of thousands of them, not 200 and some.
Should we invade Norkland to rescue them? If not, why not? Because the Norks have a very non-trivial military and (possibly) usable nukes?
Does that change the moral imperative or do we only bluster about making threats about invading countries that are unable to fight back effectively? Christianity on the cheap.
