Just read the last page, there is zero chance of American intervention to save little black girls. I'm not even sure who would think there would be the slightest chance for that.

I read somewhere that Obama was indeed sending a team to assist the Nigerians. Not a 100% sure of the validity of this though.
CherryBlossom, what exactly should happen in your opinion? Because somebody has to do something. I was thinking other countries of the African Union but now you just said that Nigeria is usually the one to send help and not the other way around. You're also saying the gvt doesn't care. In the meantime, these girls are still being held against their will and raped...

You are right, I stand corrected.

Lifted from LSA. A very enlightening article on Boko Haram

Africa: U.S. Military Holds War Games on Nigeria, Somalia

Why did the U.S. government wargame the occupation of Nigeria?? Boko Haram financed by U.S. allies Saudi Arabia and Turkey??

Yes..Wikileaks in 2011 leaked the CIA is involved in creating Boko Haram..they hired unemployed Islamist extremists to work for them to destabilize Nigeria by 2015!

Oil and Natural Resources. Strategic positioning and destabilization. Nigeria is a crown jewel for the globalist cartels and they are using the same playbook to dominate the region.


"Among scenarios examined during the game were the possibility of direct American military intervention involving some 20,000 U.S. troops in order to "secure the oil," and the question of how to handle possible splits between factions within the Nigerian government."


In May 2008, the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, hosted "Unified Quest 2008," the army's annual war games to test the American military's ability to deal with the kind of crises that it might face in the near future. "Unified Quest 2008" was especially noteworthy because it was the first time the war games included African scenarios as part of the Pentagon's plan to create a new military command for the continent: the Africa Command or Africom. No representatives of Africom were at the war games, but Africom officers were in close communication throughout the event.


General George W. Casey, Jr., left, chief of staff of the United States Army, with an American solider at Camp Lemonier, Djibouti, the only U.S. military base on African soil.

The five-day war games were designed to look at what crises might erupt in different parts of the world in five to 25 years and how the United States might handle them. In addition to U.S. military officers and intelligence officers, "Unified Quest 2008" brought together participants from the State Department and other U.S. government agencies, academics, journalists, and foreign military officers (including military representatives from several NATO countries, Australia, and Israel), along with the private military contractors who helped run the war games: the Rand Corporation and Booz-Allen.

One of the four scenarios that were war-gamed was a test of how Africom could respond to a crisis in Somalia — set in 2025 — caused by escalating insurgency and piracy. Unfortunately, no information on the details of the scenario is available.

Far more information is available on the other scenario — set in 2013 — which was a test of how Africom could respond to a crisis in Nigeria in which the Nigerian government is near collapse, and rival factions and rebels are fighting for control of the oil fields of the Niger Delta and vying for power in the country which is the sixth largest supplier of America's oil imports.

The list of options for the Nigeria scenario ranged from diplomatic pressure to military action, with or without the aid of European and African nations. One participant, U.S. Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Mark Stanovich, drew up a plan that called for the deployment of thousands of U.S. troops within 60 days, which even he thought was undesirable. "American intervention could send the wrong message: that we are backing a government that we don't intend to," Stanovich said. Other participants suggested that it would be better if the U.S. government sent a request to South Africa or Ghana to send troops into Nigeria instead.


As the game progressed, according to former U.S. ambassador David Lyon, it became clear that the government of Nigeria was a large part of the problem. As he put it, "we have a circle of elites [the government of Nigeria] who have seized resources and are trying to perpetuate themselves. Their interests are not exactly those of the people."

Furthermore, according to U.S. Army Major Robert Thornton, an officer with the Joint Center for International Security Force Assistance at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, "it became apparent that it was actually green (the host nation government) which had the initiative, and that any blue [the U.S. government and its allies] actions within the frame were contingent upon what green was willing to tolerate and accommodate."

Among scenarios examined during the game were the possibility of direct American military intervention involving some 20,000 U.S. troops in order to "secure the oil," and the question of how to handle possible splits between factions within the Nigerian government. The game ended without military intervention because one of the rival factions executed a successful coup and formed a new government that sought stability.


The recommendations which the participants drew up for the Army's Chief of Staff, General George Casey, do not appear to be publicly available, so we don't know exactly what the participants finally concluded. But we do know that since the war games took place in the midst of the presidential election campaign, General Casey decided to brief both John McCain and Barack Obama on its results.

The African Security Research Project has prepared reports providing detailed information on the creation, missions, and activities of Africom. In particular, they reveal that neither the commander of Africom, General William Ward, nor his deputy, Vice Admiral Robert Moeller, are under any illusions about the purpose of the new command.

Thus, when General Ward appeared before the House Armed Services Committee on March 13, 2008, he cited America's growing dependence on African oil as a priority issue for Africom and went on to proclaim that combating terrorism would be "Africom's number one theater-wide goal." He barely mentioned development, humanitarian aid, peacekeeping or conflict resolution.

And in a presentation by Vice Admiral Moeller at an Africom conference held at Fort McNair on February 18, 2008 and subsequently posted on the web by the Pentagon, he declared that protecting "the free flow of natural resources from Africa to the global market" was one of Africom's "guiding principles" and specifically cited "oil disruption," "terrorism," and the "growing influence" of China as major "challenges" to U.S. interests in Africa.


Since then, as General Ward has demonstrated in an interview with AllAfrica, he has become more adept at sticking to the U.S. government's official public position on Africom's aims and on its escalating military operations on the African continent.

These activities currently include supervising U.S. arms sales, military training programs and military exercises; overseeing the growing presence of U.S. naval forces in the oil-rich Gulf of Guinea and off the coast of Somalia; running the new U.S. base at Camp Lemonier in Djibouti; and managing the array of African military bases to which the United States has acquired access under agreements with the host governments of African countries all over the continent. These countries include Algeria, Botswana, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Morocco, Namibia, São Tomé, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Tunisia, Uganda, and Zambia.

We can only wonder what Barack Obama thought of the war game and what lessons he learned from General Casey's briefing. One might hope that he came away with a new appreciation for the danger, if not the outright absurdity, of pursuing the strategy of unilateral American military intervention in Africa pioneered by Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who was retained as Defense Secretary by President Obama when he took office, and General Casey, who has also kept his job under the new administration.

But President Obama has decided instead to expand the operations of Africom throughout the continent. He has proposed a budget for financial year 2010 that will provide increased security assistance to repressive and undemocratic governments in resource-rich countries like Nigeria, Niger, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and to countries that are key military allies of the United States like Ethiopia, Kenya, Djibouti, Rwanda and Uganda.

And he has actually chosen to escalate U.S. military intervention in Africa, most conspicuously by providing arms and training to the beleaguered Transitional Federal Government of Somalia, as part of his effort to make Africa a central battlefield in the "global war on terrorism." So it is clearly wishful thinking to believe that his exposure to the real risks of such a strategy revealed by these hypothetical scenarios gave him a better appreciation of the risks that the strategy entails.


Daniel Volman is director of the African Security Research Project in Washington, DC and a member of the board of directors of the Association of Concerned Africa Scholars. He has been studying U.S. security policy toward Africa and U.S. military activities in Africa for more than 30 years.

God bless President Obama . The President sent special forces to find the children . Today a fool came into the private entrance with the president children after school, but he refuse to stop his military powers to help the missing girls . I can't believe more girls are missing. Praying . 

Reports: Gunmen went door to door

Nigeria defended its response to the kidnapping of hundreds of girls last month by a terror group, even as details emerged about a second mass abduction. FULL

I won't sit here and pretend I have all the answers but imo what needs to happen is that the nigerian govt needs to get it's sh*t together...corruption has rendered them rotten to the absolute core

boko haram have been terrorising people in the north for years now..I think the only reason nigeria wants to do something now is because of the international exposure this story has received

Hundreds killed in Boko Haram attack in Nigeria - report

At least 300 people were killed in a northeastern Nigerian town on the Cameroon border in the latest attack by Islamist militant group Boko Haram, AFP reports, citing a local senator and witnesses.

The attack on Gamboru Ngala took place Monday night, but the official death toll was first reported Wednesday in the national newspaper The Daily Trust, which put it at 200 people and counting.

Area senator Ahmed Zanna now tells AFP that "the death toll from the attack is around 300" and "property has been razed." Residents say over one hundred bodies have been collected so far and that this not the final toll yet.

"Since morning, our people have been conducting funerals for the dead and up to 8pm (last night) they are not done yet. There’s no family that is not affected in Gamboru," federal lawmaker from the area, Abdulrahman Terab, told The Daily Trust.

The militants had entered the village of Gamboru in armored vehicles, on motorcycles, and with pick-up trucks.

“The attackers stormed the communities in the night when residents were still sleeping, setting ablaze houses and shooting residents who tried to escape from the fire,’” Senator Ahmed Zannah said in a BBC Hausa report Tuesday.

Among the dead were some 16 policemen.

Boko Haram means “Western education is forbidden” and the group, which wants to establish an Islamic state in Nigeria, frequently stages attacks.

The sect has been growing bolder in recent months. More than 200 schoolgirls were kidnapped by the group three weeks ago, with the leader threatening to sell them into slavery. A $300,000 cash reward has since been offered by the police for their recovery.

The kidnapping occurred the same day as an explosion which killed 75 people on the outskirts of the capital Abuja – the first on the city in some two years. So far this year, the group has been responsible for some 1,500 deaths.

The US and UK have both stated their intent to help find the kidnapped girls. The US his sending experts to Abuja while Britian has stated that it is ready to go further and dispatch military troops in the form of special forces and intelligence gathering aircraft.
