1) This is just another reason why our country is the greatest, we're a country built on law and order.

2) I've been to Eastern Euro, the middle East and the African Rim, I will always feel the same.

3) Had an old MSG tell me once, there's always going to be another objective and a mission, I hope and pray for the girls safety but most of all, I hope the USA stays quite and "not" show our hand, and send the "Tip of The Sword"

The Quite Professionals

No Mercy, No Quarter, No more, just "The Tip of The Sword" it's all these Skinnies know and fear..

Thank you

The USA is joining in the search for the abducted girls.

Kinda late the party ain't it? I guess it is better than nothing and takes the pressure off the humanitarian disaster in the S.Sudan.

Don't need to be policeman of the world to look for people.

Instead of talking, just do it. Too much political nonsense and look at me in all this. Go in, find them, deal with the abductors and bug out and never admit to having been there.

Send the "small" Army and then it doesn't matter, I am not talking being the Policemen of the world.

I'm talking about not officially being there. Swift Justice, there's no better team in the world. Tier One


Take care

If hundreds of young white girls had been kidnaped, you have to wonder if the world's reaction would be the same.

I have a very dear friend who has travelled on missionary trips to Africa multiple times. My thought to her is why spend so much time and energy and risk on a place that overnight can lose 300 of it's young women to insurgents, when we can work to clean up the streets of Chicago and not leave our own city?

Much to be done here. Perhaps too much to focus our energies elsewhere.
I completely disagree.

Of all the reasons the US has become involved overseas, few have struck me as urgently as this. This time, it's children. And , children frequently bear the brunt of the ugliness and stupidity of adults. They deserve our resources. All they wanted was an education, that would have enabled them to have a voice in their country.

If we don't protect those least capable of protecting themselves, how civilized a society can we really claim to be?

Yes. It is our problem. Because there are young girls who could be raped. Because there are young girls who could be sold into sex slavery. Because there are young girls who were trying to get an education and were kidnapped. Because there are young girls who are not at home with their families. Because there are innocent young girls who are suffering.

For anyone who can't see that...... sucks to be them.

Though not as much as it would suck to be their daughter.

200 plus little girls kidnapped. Should we go in? Absolutely. Their home country doesn't have the resources to get the job done. If not us, who? The UN

This is crazy in these times. But if one reads about past many tribes would kidnap other tribes women and children.

Yes women are the targeted victims - but this IS a human rights issue. It is about slavery. The fact that it happens to be aimed at women doesn't change that.
29 Nigerian boys were killed recently in a school by the same group. It didn't get much attention.
