If you want to blame anyone for as you put it for " this sect is gaining ground at the speed of light" then blame the fragmented, inept, corrupt military and government of Nigeria that could care less about ordinary Nigerian citizens.
Nigeria has oil and natural resources - USA wants that.

London Provide a link that supports your statement. Simply making an assertion even if based on conjecture doesn't make your assertion a fact.

The United States is rich in oil some say we are waiting for everyone else's to run out before tapping into our source more aggressively.

I know Nigerians their society is very tribal the Hausa, Yoruba and Ibo do not recognize each other as being the same people. The most educated are the Ibo in general. I have spoken to a Yoruba who has told me that he doesn't see the others as being like him at all, there is a lot of discrimination there.

Someone sent me a direct message regarding this post which stated "Are radical" I am willing to give you an opportunity to elaborate why you believe it is a radical post.

However I suspect you took offense to something I wrote and that was your way of showing that you were unhappy.

Not true. If you survey African countries today, about AFRICOM, this USA military presence in Africa, you will see how they feel.
People are certain that the US is weakening Africa countries through proxy groups such as Boko haram on purpose to force those countries to ask for US military protection.

That is all subjective peoples perceptions are often wrong, it is very convenient to fabricate an external threat to have a finger to point out when there are serious issues within Nigeria that they are clearly not dealing with effectively.

You did not provide any evidence showing that Boko Haram is being supported by the west.

The articles you provided lack Journalism they are basically mouth pieces for the opposition to Africom.

Here is a link containing the mission statement of Africom start contrast to your sources.

What We Do | United States Africa Command

There appears to be an element in Africa that is hyper-paranoid of African countries becoming colonies of more powerful countries it is somewhat understandable based on the history of the continent.

I have no idea what country you are from but if Boko Haram does overrun the Nigerian military like Isil did with the Iraqi military the Nigerians will be grateful for Africom.

If you are claiming the United States is somehow supporting Boko Haram show me the evidence to support your conspiracy theory.
