Nigerian Girls Being Sold: Should US Intervene?

I’ve found fellow conservatives fall along two lines in the recent Boko Haram kidnapping.
Some say we should stay out of it. It’s not our country, it’s not our girls and it could turn into a political mess, involving us in a country already shredded by years of poverty and corruption. Others say right is right and if we have the power and ability to go after a crazed Islamic militant group and save these girls from a fate worse than death, we are obligated to. I am of the second group.


Diplomacy can be dangerous, and with a country as populous and comparatively wealthy (the 26th wealthiest country in the world) that's doubly true. It has one of the worst human rights records in the world and is among the most corrupt. The rights of women are stomped upon, gangs stuff ballot boxes and its police force operates like a protection racket. Just do a search for it's history of human rights abuses in the last decade.

The real challenge will be speaking to their "elected" officials with any kind of straight face. Although Nigeria claims to be dedicated to the elimination of Boko Haram, politicians and officials seem more concerned with lining their pockets. By some estimates, half of the country's wealth is lost from corruption, bribery and extortion.

I don't have much respect for the government of Nigeria, and I have nothing but sympathy for its people. I also don't have much respect for the Koran's teachings on about women's rights and obligations to be subservient. It doesn't matter. I don't care what countries think about Western education or our sinful behavior.

The right to be self-righteous ended the moment this group of rabid zealots killed unarmed innocents or dragged the poor girls from their school. Most of the time I think a military response should be like a candle: very slow to burn.

A story like this, though, makes me want to get all Apocalypse Now. Give the U.S. military a week, a fleet of Apaches and about 10,000 rounds of ammo and they'll get those girls back. And wipeout Boko Haram at the same time.

Yea Tim, it’s got all flavors of emotions. But, it really isn’t about the girls per se. Recall the Afghan school girl who was shot for going to school? Root cause is radical Islamist, a la al queda, boko haram and so on - - - .

Islamist have been working to take over dark Africa for decades and doing it in a super cruel way. So far it’s been more of a tribal tit for tat thing with the Islamists winning most of the rounds. There has been no effective ‘Africa Core’ ginned up to protect the non-muslim folks.

The US is deployed around the world fighting radical Islam. I think we should regroup/rethink on the issue. It’s clear that if we didn’t have the strength to repel the radicals the US would be experiencing the same fate as Africa. We are at war with radical Islam, Pak, Yemen, Libya and so on. So, why not gin up an intl force, start in South Africa and move northward, clearing radical forces and preventing the further takeover of African nations by the radicals?

Then, there is the Sultan of Brunei and hotelier of California who is determined to bring sharia law to his kingdom. This globalisation thing comes with a ton of problems, IMO.

Maybe we should hire the WTO to take care of these problems.

A lot worse has happened there in the recent past and probably yesterday.

We can “help” by talking a lot about it. There is nothing practical we can do or should try doing. If you thought Iraq was a mess, wait until you see Nigeria. I would love to wipe out groups like Boko Harem, but it would not be that easy to do.

I also agree with Roy - we have to admit that radical Islam is an enemy to civilization.

Anybody who shouts Allah Akbar is a coward. They need to be eradicated. Here is one plan. Have people who have the means to do so purchase those girls and release them to their families. Then immediadely kill those terrorists to the last man.

Another way is to use those drones that the president is so eager to use and put one of those drone missles down the throat of each and every one of those terrorists.

We then move on to the the next area to be dealt with and do the same. The benefit of this will be to reduce the armament supply of our country. Of course we have thousands of those missles and it would take some time to use up those arms.

Now the primary problem is, where in this great country are the voices of protest!! Are there that many cowards in this country that are afraid of a fatwa or threat of harm from them? Where are the pastors, priests, and rabbis to preach from the pulpit these atrocities?

The foreign policy of this country should be to have nothing to do wih those countries who prefer sharia law, or other terrorist activity that is supported by those governments. Absolutely no money should flow to those agencies and governments who support these terrorist activies. That would also help our national debt by a small measure.

I can see a US ‘jihad’ as a way to help clear the recession era. The Middle East/Africa needs some serious long-term intervention. Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sudan, Libya, and all of Central Africa.

Congress would need to declare war on ‘radical Islam’ and gin up the military establishment. Affected countries would be told to either participate or be shunted to ground economically. Those nations that choose to support/stand with the extremist will risk being droned to death.

A 30 year plan/policy should be sufficient to eradicate this long time and sworn enemy from the battlefield, IMO.
