I think the point here is to get the US military involved in Nigeria and neighboring countries. they tried to pull us in with the KONY 2012 fiasco
already. My feeling is this is all designed to pull us in for "humanitarian" purposes. I agree, where are the Nigerian men? Where is the Army? I
say let them worry about their own.
Nigeria is loaded, they have money coming out of their arses and had previously refused 'our' help with this situation, but
neither has the
government shown any real concern for the welfare of the girls or had any intention of rescuing the girls. However, this second attack, coinciding
with the meeting of the World Economic Forum has stolen the Nigerian President's thunder. Mr Jonathan was supposed to have stood before his peers
and been lauded for turning Nigeria into a real economic player, instead he has spent his time fielding intense questions about the girls and about
what he is going to do about Boko Haram. His response, seemingly put on the spot, was to say that this is the beginning of the end for terrorism in
Nigeria, oddly (or not) reminiscent of Barack Obama's statements a few days before. The UK and US are sending 'experts' to help. That is going to
cost Nigeria a pretty penny, one way or another. The long and the short of it is though, that the Nigerian government are being made
about the situation due to international pressure. Left to their own devices, eventually, it will get bloody, lead to instability and therefore
threaten oil production. Nobody wants that, not at this point in the game anyway.
