which african nations do you think deserve better or worse treatment from america? nigeria has oil and egypt has a middle east connection. the rest of the continent, im not sure why any specific country would get treated different from one another. also, thanks to hydraulic fracking i believe we have reduced our nigerian oil imports so much that its not much of a factor for us when it comes to oil.

What a waste of money for the US and UK. These girls, even freed, will still be treated like chattel.

I can't get interested.

How many children were abducted in the US in this past week? How many children murdered in the US? How many went to bed hungry?

Good God! Let's clean up our own house before we mess around with someone else's.
