    So very sad, to read this. As an American Christian my heart hurts for the parents of these people who have lost their children. As the supporter of the military with family in the military we need every nation to take responsibility for policeing their own nation. It starts with the local people. Hunt these cowards down and string them up where you find them and leave them for all to see this is what happens when you defile our children. My prayers are with you.

    Terrible atrocities to women and children specifically, and yet, no military intervention on our part. Now, what could be the difference?

    "Since the conflict began in 2009, more than 20,000 people have been killed and 1.7 million people are still internally displaced."

    20,000 people killed? 1.7 million people displaced? Um, where were the headlines? Also, back in 2015, it was reported that at the height of Boko Haram's territorial aggression, the group "carved out a 'caliphate' the size of Belgium in the impoverished north- eastern corner of Nigeria" until they were defeated and pushed out by the Nigerian military. Why is detailed coverage lacking?

    Boko Haram is a phony quasi military extremist group that uses the pretense of Islamic State ideology to justify its own brand of warped male sexual dominant practice which includes kidnapping hundreds of child brides as “reward virgins” for its bloodthirsty members. They are utterly repugnant and Muslims everywhere should disavow them.

    Wait.

    Do you mean that Michelle Obama’s sad face with #BringBackOurGirls didn’t stop Boko Haram???

    Amazing.

    They killed 2000 teachers? Oklahoma's governor wants their contact info.

    The guy in the oval office is saying he'll attack Syria (to get Putin's attention) but he doesn't care about these people.

    This is what happens when religion is allowed to take over government.
    It's very much like the Christian Crusades of long ago.

    When will people realize that worship has to be voluntary. Whether or not you choose to believe and what or whom you choose to worship is all up to the individual.

    Religion continues to be a source of conflict as it has been for centuries.

    So where is the western outrage? Where is the showy response from western military? Just sad headlines every other month and it goes on and on.

    And the world tolerates their existence.

    Monsters in the eyes of all who see them for what they truly are, can't think of any who could be more deserving of death than these cowardly killers of women and children.
