Let’s hope the girls are not moved by the barbarians. I would hope an opening was discovered to route these thugs by surprise.

They must have followed the Jihadist that pulled the short Straw and had to go buy the Tampons at 7/11.

Nigeria is a middle income, mixed economy and emerging market, with expanding financial, service, communications, technology and entertainment sectors. It is ranked 26th in the world in terms of GDP (nominal: 30th in 2013 before rebasing, 40th in 2005, 52nd in 2000), and is the largest economy in Africa (based on rebased figures announced in April 2014). It is also on track to become one of the 20 largest economies in the world by 2020.

They can certainly afford to buy an army. I understand the French Foreign Legion can be had for depression era prices.

Shortly after the kidnapping the Nigerian government claimed to have rescued all the girls. That was obviously false and until they girls are back in their parents’s arms I wouldn’t trust anything the Nigerians say.

Or else the Nigerians don't know where the hostages are and are hoping this announcement will get them to move now that US drones are in the area to show where they are.

I have no trust for Nigeria myself. I can imagine the 276 schoolgirls being herded into semis and trucked en mass down some highway to the hiding place. I know that the space for 30 pallets fits in a typical semi. I don’t know how you can cram more than 70 girls in each semi. So, four semis went en mass down some freeway, to a final destination. Those semis had to start at the school. You think a government can’t find someone who didn’t notice those semis? This is as fishy as the Malaysian Flight 370. It has symptoms of the Islam o-fascist cabal that has its hold on a large share of nations around the world.

What troubles me is the United States government’s silence on the matter. Don’t we have the most sophisticated satellite reconnaissance system ever devised by man at our disposal? It is our ultimate video surveillance system in the sky. If that system cannot pinpoint the flight and destination of Flight 370, what good is it? If, for instance, if North Korea launched a nuclear weapon towards Los Angeles, that satellite system would have detected what kind of rocket, its origin, and its trajectory. It would have had that capability day or night. Now, we have a airline flight disappearing into nowhere. What if the airline flight was carrying a nuke to Los Angeles? Wouldn’t our reconnaissance system be on it? What good is it if it can’t?

In the same way, you would think our satellite reconnaissance system—our video surveillance system—can’t see trucks lined up at a girl’s school and have pictures of where they went? I am wondering about all this and do not have great faith in what we are being told.

Wouldn’t it be horrible to be the parents of one of these poor girls.

Prayers up for their safe return to the families that love and miss them....

A top Nigerian military official said Monday that the government knows the whereabouts of several hundred kidnapped girls but cannot reveal their location and cannot use force to rescue them

Subject: NIGERIAN GIRLS

From: Mr. Peter Attah

URGENT - HELP ME RESCUE 300 NIGERIAN GIRLS

IN SUMMARY:- I have found 300 kidnapped Nigerian girls and I want you to assist me in rescuing them. I agree to reward you with part of the ransom money for your assistance, kindness and participation in this Godly project. This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as unserious could come into your mind but please consider it a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of humility.

I am Mr Peter Attah and I am a 55 years old man. I am a South African living in the Garden City of Port Harcourt - Nigeria. I was the President/CEO of TOMOBA OIL LIMITED - an oil servicing comapny in Port Harcourt. I was also married with two children. My business and concern for making money was all I was living for and I never really cared about other people.

But since the loss of these children, I have found a new desire to assist the helpless. I have been helping orphans in orphanages/motherless homes. I have donated some money to orphans in Sudan, Ethiopia, Cameroon,Spain,Austria,Germany and some Asian countries.

If you provide me the sum of 43,000 dollars US, this will allow me to hire the army I need to rescue these children. You will recieve 1,399,999 dollars US back, from the grateful families.

All I require is a cashiers check in that amount, or your banking information, and I will work out the details.

Kindly expedite action and contact me via e-mail: peterattah2007@yahoo.co.uk if this proposal is acceptable to you.

May the good Lord bless you and your family.

Best Regards,

Mr Peter Attah N.B Contact me via e-mail: peterattah2007@yahoo.co.uk
