The so called nation of Nigeria each day sinks further and further into chaos and disregard for the lives of its own people. Over 300 girls have been kidnapped by the crazy Boko Haram and are being held in jungle areas. When Boko Haram attacked the girl’s school, messages were sent to nearby Nigerian military bases, but no soldiers set forth to protect their own females. Well, the United Nations Security Council has now stepped into the picture. In an amazing display of unity, all members of the Security Council denounced Boko Haram. The Security Council “demanded the immediate and unconditional release of all abducted girls still in captivity and further expressed the deep concern at statements made by the alleged leader of Boko Haram threatening to sell the girls as slaves.”
Wonderful words. But, they should have been directed at the corrupt, inefficient and lazy government of Nigeria whose so-called Army has done absolutely nothing to confront Boko Haram, and certainly not to engage them in battle. Yes, Boko Haram is composed of fundamentalist idiots living in another time. But, until the government of Nigeria ceases to rob its own people and ignore threats to their safety, Boko Haram will wander the land doing as it desires.
