US, support Nigeria to defeat Boko Haram

February 17, 2015

I watched the video in which a Jordanian pilot was burnt alive by members of the Islamic State (IS) in Syria.

The pilot was kept in a cage and douced with petrol. With this, there was no where he could run to.

It was so pathetic hearing that some people in the background enjoyed what was playing out in front of them. These people have lost their souls to the devil.

The manner in which the Islamic State swept across Syria and Iraq last year was surprising.

Also in the case of Nigeria, no one ever believed members of the Boko Haram sect could become so powerful for the military to defeat. That is why I keep saying that the refusal of the American government to sell weapons to Nigeria is a great mistake.

If the Americans had sold us the weapons needed, we would have forgotten about Boko Haram. However, if Nigeria collapses, it will be a huge hell of operation for our neighbouring countries to absorb the refugees coming from the country.

I am happy with the renewed onslaught against the terrorists by a multi-national force comprising Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Benin.

I am also happy that the United Nations has given its support to the force, and I know this should be enough reason for the US and other Western powers to assist the soldiers with weapons.

Terrorism is a global challenge, and all the necessary support must be given to countries tackling insurgencies.

I hope in the next couple of weeks, the Boko Haram insurgency would have been a thing of the past, as the soldiers would have cleared the remaining terrorists from the NorthEast.

  • why would the US sell Nigeria weapons when the military will run and leave them in the hands of Boko Haram, as was the case in Mubi?

    • We don’t know that for sure, yes the government is corrupt but we have to look at the bigger picture of the innocent sufferings as a result of this scourge and deal with it decisively

    • This is very unfortunate, Nigeria is supposed to be one of the best military powers in Africa and literally all their neighbors are pitching in to help on this issue, now the United States too. This is deep there is more to it than we know!

  • Well the news is that they will help, there are not much details on how so let’s stay positive. They know our government is corrupt and at least will try to limit their exposure here.
