As the United States continues its alleged “War on Terror”, we have literally witnessed a drastic increase in terror attacks worldwide against western Interest.
The latest event is the kidnapping of 300 school girls from a border school in Mid-April by an Islamic Radical group known as Boko Haram. The group kidnapped the girls and Murdered 300 of their teachers and overseers.
The Group’s leader Abubakar Shekau posted a video in which he claims credit for abducting the girls. He then threatened to sell the girls into slavery as child brides for as low as $15.
In the full video, Boko Haram’s leader says that “Allah” has given him permission to abduct these young girls and to sell them into slavery. He claims that there is a “Market” for child slavery and he intends to fill that market with women who have been infected by Western Influence (Freedoms, Rights, Religion).
Unfortunately, this is not the first time that this Radical organization has wreaked havoc throughout Nigeria. This organization has been waging war on political and religious minorities for years Including numerous bombings throughout 2011 against US embassies and interests within Nigeria.
The people of Nigeria have begged the government to stop this Radical Sect, but due to the inner corruption within the law enforcement agencies — very little has been done to stop them.
Thus leading the people of Nigeria to ask for the help of other Nations including a specific address to President Obama, one parent asking him to consider the usage of drones to help stop such an evil and radical group whom have done nothing but wage war and persecute religious minorities within the region.
The news quickly spread world-wide which resulted in even celebrities (such as Michelle Obama, and Angelina Jolie) speaking out against the terror organization Boko Haram and urging the United States and other world powers to get involved and help stop this evil organization once and for all.
Finally, the world powers (including USA, UK, and France) have joined in search for the missing girls.The United States is expected to send 20 military personnel along with several other diplomats to assist the Nigerian government in finding these Islamic Rebels. Many have criticized the Obama Administration over such a timid response, claiming that he has no real intent to assist the people of Nigeria against this radical sect of Islam. Both UK and France have followed the lead of the United States by providing diplomatic support instead of military aid. The Logic being that the Nigerian government should use its own forces to stop Boko Haram.
The Nigerian government offered a 50m naira (or $300,000) to anyone who can help find the location of the 284 kidnapped girls or the location of the leader of the terror organization who vowed to sell the girls as slave-brides.
To the Reader: Should The United States of America get more involved by sending military support? or should we just allow the Country to take care of its own Citizens?
