I am sorry bitsoys, that many of the posters on this forum don't have a problem with genocide as long as it is Christians.

But would it be ok if the genocide were Muslims? I've seen no one call for the genocide of Christians on this forum.

This excerpt from the FedBIzOpps document does not suggest that USAID wants to cast the killings as a misunderstanding?

The killings were not a misunderstanding...the root cause of the violence is often misunderstood.

So in as much as Christians are a are the MUSLIM Security forces...So is the United is anyone engaged in "Western Learning" etc. etc.

AND Obama Never made the statement in the headline...nor even inferred it...a statement that was made by US Aid talked about the causes of the violence being misunderstood! And your post is obviously living proof of that...

A battle for resources...a battle for power...Tribal..political...If you are going to address the problem, best to be clear about the cause...Half of Nigeria is Christian, Half Muslim and they get along very, very well...this is a faction of the Yoruba tribe...who is also a mix of Christians and Muslims...that is looking to destabalize the government and sieze the Oil rich Delta. "Islam" is just the flag they wave and they kill Muslims and Christians alike.

Regardless of what they use to differentiate themselves, tribes, church, football team jersey, sadly Africa is still in a midsent closer to the 1st century than the 21st century.

As for saving one of the particular cults from the other... why? Isn't that their chance to see their phony god? Really? If X was hacked to death by Y, isn't that the lie's, I mean god's plan? That X is going home to live in the house of glory with 34 golden decks of Pinochle cards, 4 platinum toothed wyverns, and a 93" big screen? Why the rush to save them from the house of glory...unless there is no house of glory? That is it!?

The USAID finally got it right.

Religion was NOT the cause for the brutal murders.

The true cause was CORRUPTION.

Let's face facts. Nigeria isnt exactly a corruption free nation. In fact, it is amongst the bottom pile. It is a systemic problem, made worse by the educated whom were largely educated by free religious institutions, but in time, co-opt the system to enrich themselves as everyone else was.

The muslims were largely left alone, but as the wealth of the nation became glaringly obvious, so too the social divide. It was only easy for those whom sought for power to use religion to murder fellow citizens, and push the blame to the Almighty, gain public acceptance as righteousness on the path to personal greed, power and glory.

Happened throughout the course of our human history.

The solution lays in SHARING wealth with the muslims, and cut down on corruption, not just simply cutting down Boko Haram, the terrorist group. Gov initiatives must be made to help the muslims in Nigeria mired in poverty and lack of opportunities/education. Afterall, they are only fellow humans, with only COMMON aspirations EVERY human on planet Earth desires for.

Less drone, more religious teachers and shared wealth is the only solution to end the murders of our fellow human brothers in sisters, of both religion, in Nigeria, by the greedy and barbaric. May USAID succeed and lead the way.
