A month after declaring an Islamic state-like caliphate in Northeastern Nigeria, Boko Haram militants have reportedly surrounded the Borno state capital Maiduguri, where residents expect an attack on what could be the group's largest and most symbolic seizure yet.

What should the US military do about this given that they behead people, want to establish a caliphate, etc, etc?
“Sound like anyone in the Middle East?”
—Sounds like most everyone in the Middle East. /S
No worries, mate. The “religion of peace” will put together coalitions from the countries of the “religion of peace” to defeat those who have “hijacked” the “religion of peace”.
Boko Haram allied itself with ISIS.
Obama is smiling.
If Boka Haram has allied itself with ISIS, beheads people, wants to establish a caliphate, etcetera, should the US military get involved or should the US work to form a GHWB-like coalition ?
And will do nothing...
Nor will McCain ask that the US do anything. For some reason, McCain seems to like going to Syria and Ukraine, but not anywhere in Africa.
Just as with Sudan when Christians were slaughtered, sold into slavery, crucified and on and on...
The Obama family, on the African side, may be involved with Boko Haram.
Hasn’t anyone come up with a knock out gas yet? Drop it on them, put them asleep, then pick up their weapons and revive the civilian population and let them deal with them. There has to be a quick way to deal with these modern day savages. It doesn’t seem to get better anymore, just worse.
If we are going to wage a "extended counter-terrorism campaign" why do they call them "militants?"
? ? ?
If the sane and other people in Nigeria can’t defend themselves against BOKO HARAM, why should we step in and do the job for them? What’s the old saying? “IF YOU AREN’T WILLING TO DEFEND YOUR FREEDOM, YOU DESERVE TO LOSE IT”.
Are you willing to apply this sentiment to Iraq and Syria?
We are at war with ISIS, but what do we do given that terrorist Boko Haram has allied itself with ISIS and may slaughter/behead/sell into slavery many in this city if they take it over?
Perhaps McCain must visit first in order to get the media to affix terrorist to Boko Haram? A term which Boko Haram aptly deserves.
is it too much to hope, that when these ragheads are beheading people, that their victims have Ebola? i’d love to see Ebola tearing like wildfire through these Islamic goat-f#ckers and sodommites. you know they don’t trust western medicine, even if a cure is made available.
The media sure dropped that quickly.
If Christians are slaughtered, beheaded, a caliphate is trying to be constructed by terrorists, etcetera, it is one thing to the media if it is in the heart of the Middle East, but another if it is in Africa...
1. Arm and train "friendlies" to topple Assad
2. Pass sanctions against Putin
3. Give a speech and promote a coalition
This is about 3000 miles from the Obama stomping grounds.
This like saying if a problem is developing in Turkey, those Norwegians are probably involved.
Why can’t Nigeria help itself? If they do not wish to be ruled by barbaric sharia laws, don’t they have a military, or a national guard, maybe a good sized police force? Do the individual African Nations ever help each other out? Now would be a great time to start! Don’t depend exclusively on the U.S., then curse us or try to sabotage when we get there, as was the case in Afghanistan and Iraq.
