QuoteOriginally posted by: tagomaThat's a sad story.Schoolgirls can be pretty mean. No doubt they will point out these guys have no chairs, and dress like losers. So just put out an alert for anyone buying a large order of chairs, and you will find the girls.Do all muslims lack chairs? Or just al qaeda types who sold their furniture to buy bombs?Are chairs an evil western device? Maybe someone can issue a fatwa that those weird kneeling chairs are okay.

US to help Nigeria find kidnapped girls I was troubled by the lineQuoteHe said the kidnapping and subsequent outrage over Nigeria's inability to rescue the girls "may be the event that helps to mobilize the entire international community to finally do something against this horrendous organization that's perpetrated such a terrible crime."sounds like there's another war on the way

We all know that muslims are for the most part good people who are misunderstood and provoked by the USA. If Boko Haram murders 10,000 people, it is just the position that George W. Bush and Israel and Exxon forced them into. So what is the big deal, right? We are sorry about the 10,000 dead people, but we replaced Bush with Obama so at least we are trying.What I don't get, is how some people say Boko Haram is the bad actor in all this. What did they do? This is the best argument that people like John Kerry seem to have against them:QuoteThey don't offer anything except violence. They don't offer a health care plan. They don't offer schools. They don't tell you how to build a nation. They don't talk about how they will provide jobs.Okay, I guess they sound sort of bad. But it is going to take a little more to convince me.

This is pretty funny. This is a real picture so far as I can make out, not doctored. It must be pornography for that muslim boko guy!Conan, what is best in life? To crush your enemies. To see them driven before you and hear the lamentation of the women.There it is, the lamentation of the women.

They dont offer healthcare is precious. He should have said, "they dont offer Obamacare". I know zero of this story. Has Obama already apologized for Muslim sensitivities of sensitive Muslims being offended? Was there a memo from the White House or State Dep that citizens who disrespect the Prophet have no place in the future? I mean it could be in a local muslim culture to kidnap some girls here and there -- it could be as odd sounding as beheading those pesky gays for some undeveloped individuals here, but it just means that some need to widen their cultural acceptances. Finally, has Kerry announced already that we need to bomb Syria immediately to get those girls back?
