President Goodluck Jonathan would thank you along with mostly everyone else, and yes, the 'world would be a better place' without them.


Nigerian Islamists kill at least 159 in two attacks

BENISHEIK, Nigeria, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Islamist Boko Haram militants killed 159 people in two roadside attacks in northeast Nigeria this week, officials said, far more than was originally reported and a sign that a four-month-old army offensive has yet to stabilise the region.

In the first attack, on Tuesday, Boko Haram guerrillas wearing army uniforms stopped traffic on a highway between the cities of Maiduguri and Damaturu, dragging people out of their vehicles and killing them, with 143 bodies recovered so far.

Violence in northeast Nigeria has intensified over the past two months, as the Islamists fight back against a military operation that President Goodluck Jonathan ordered in May to try to crush their four-year-old rebellion.

Before Obama can use his missiles, he must first draw a red line. Then a year or two must past, red line be crossed, and then he and John Kerry will threaten a very limited, pin prick missile attack. But he will want to get Congressial approval first, which he will not get. But then Russia's Putin will step in and pull Obama's foot from his mouth.

In short, just go straight to Putin for help.

Obamas red line is there will be no more then 10 Nigerians scamming stupid Americans out of their money by wiring or cashing a check and sending them money. I can't believe that Nigerian scam still works it is so 2000, saw our local paper site one this week
On a serious note this is not our problem and Africa should take care of it, of course the U S could throw the MIC a bone and sell them arms.

I think that Boko Haram is more of a problem of ours than ousting Middle Eastern dictators who control their populaces better than the riff raff that we help overthrow them - but save some missles for the Al Shabab militants - especially the stupid Americans that are involved with them.

'The investigation, driven by the FBI, was initiated after a Twitter account, reportedly managed by the militant group, specified names and home states of American residents allegedly belonging to the group, NBC News reported. Two of the U.S. nationals named by the militants are said to be from the St. Paul-Minneapolis metropolitan area in Minnesota, which has more than 85,000 Somali-American residents, NBC reported citing authorities.'
