Don’t go to sleep yet, sparks, we need your wisdom.

59 dead here, 3 dead there.

Please God, rest all of the souls.

And God? Please give me your guidance while I smite all thine enemies.

I will fight as long as I can. I will fight until they kill me.

Well, that’s a bummer. I guess it doesn’t hurt to have more than one, so everyone will see the news.

Sounds like the Awan Brothers got their access restored to the Congressional computing system.

When I was following the events in Libya when Gadaffi was being overthrown, I noticed he had a strong area of support in southern Libya. I suspect that some of his supporters escaped over the border into Chad, and possibly into Niger. At any rate Trump has now added Chad to our list of places that people cannot be from and enter the US. Probably some of those folks have now moved over into Niger. Perhaps that will be the next prohibited country.

Why did they confirm that we’re in Niger?

That was my first reaction upon reading the disheartening headlines. The next thought was the Pakistani-ISI-Awan-IT-scandal and the suspicion that their access to our nation's most sensitive national security data compromised our soldiers in Yemen back in January.

I haven't found much on the relationship between Niger and Pakistan other than Pakistan has an embassy in Niamey, although Niger does not maintain a permanent embassy in Islamabad.

Then I searched for related news between Niger and Pakistan and came upon this little detail:

When I was in school, I was put on detention only for pronouncing the name of this country during an oral report.

GW reports that there is still an illegal log on to the congressional server once every hour.

Our’s is not to question why...

Bull. That is why this country is in the messes we are in. People stopped asking questions, just took everything the scum in Sodom on the Potomac said as the gospel and said, "oh well if they think it is best, it must be for the best." BS. America is being handed a bill of goods and we are drowning for it. We are drowning under a 20 trillion debt because WE THE PEOPLE did not ask questions. Our military is now in NIGER for God's sake!!!!!!!!! What, WHAT is in Niger that we have to have our people ambushed by these murdering tribesmen and cost our people their lives. If it is that bad there, then bomb the place flat and it saves our people's lives. This crap makes me sick. This nation is dying on the vine. This nation has lost its way. We are drowning in a flood of apathy, corruption, wickedness, sinfulness, crime, rape, murder, drugs, corrupt politicians, corrupt policing types, rapid unbelief in the God of heaven, and we are paying the price for it. America has wondered down a dead-end road and at the end of that road is the end of the Republic as founded. Donald Trump is not going to be able to save this nation. The RINOs and the Commie Dims both are doing a job on him and his agenda. No, not unless this stupid nation gets on its knees and cries out to GOD in heaven in repentance, we are doomed. You don't believe that? Then do so at your won peril. The Scriptures MAKE IT CLEAR what happens to a wicked nation, and this nation is wicked to its roots.

Boko Haram has bases in southern Niger and they launch raids into Nigeria from there. We have been assisting the Nigerian Special Operations Command (NASOC) since 2014.
