    The US started this whole mess by taking out the Libyan government.

    We broke it, we own it.

    I suppose I should become informed. That seems a little simplistic--and what is it that the US should do?

    I just clicked on a dozen or so celebrity photos---'Bring Back Our Girls'--yet no definitive plans have been described.

    And these are the people who didn't support the 'War on Terror'--fwiw.

    I agree. Kind of perplexing.

    I was with the JSOTF (Joint Special Operations Task Force) deployed to the the US Embassy in Mogadishu. I was on a 5th Group 'A' Team.

    BTW, we asked for permission to land UH-60s for some touch & goes on your flightdeck and it was granted. I was assigned to a sniper team on one of them with 160th Nightstalkers, and even took some Marine snipers with us and did some zero-G turns just for fun. That's where you fly straight up, do a stall-out, turn and recover before hitting the ground. It scared the shit out of those Jarheads.

    Oh, and I'm a Navy vet. Served on the USS Kitty Hawk CV-63 in the 70s before I ETSed and went to college. I decided to join the Army in 1984 because of Reagan.

    On my tv last night it was stated that the Nigerian govt knew about the raid to kidnap the girls before it happened, but did nothing to stop it.

    Charming!


    Nigeria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Very interesting is Nigeria...an economic powerhouse.



    Time the Christians in Nigeria armed themselves to the teeth.
    Time they [in the south] fenced themselves off from the Muslims in the North, to start with...as Australians were going to do in WW2 when Japan was prevailing in PNG and a Japanese invasion of Australia seemed imminent...build a barricade across the middle of Australia and fight back. Trouble was though, the population were unarmed. Had 5 million of the 7 million population been an armed and trained militia, kids included, they likely would've defeated Japan if it invaded.

    Same deal in Nigeria, Christians there will keep being terrorised and slaughterd by Islamists until they draw a line in the sand, arm themselves to the max with all the latest weapons, and get serious about self-defence.
    The only way to defeat terrorists is to become a 'terrorist'.

    What vile evil bullshit.

    You traitors only make matters worse.

    Its like you just cannot understand the horror of this and all that matters is feeding your brainless hate for your own country.
