    So the "religion of peace" is in action again and eventually the 250 kidnapped Nigerian girl's plight has reached a level of political noise where something could happen to rescue them.

    Do you think violence is justified e.g. Special forces intervention?

    I am curious, if the kidnapping had been carried out by the IRA, would you have blamed Christianity?

    It is politically expedient for Obama to do this ......as he must rectify the fact that Putin has made him look emasculated in other world affairs.....just my opinion. Makes me sound jaded but as much as I feel bad for these young women I smell political expediency

    I say, implant tracking devices in the prisoners while they are asleep. Exchange them for the girls, then track the prisoners to their terrorist friends and bomb the piss out of them all.

    I say let the USA stay out of it because we must recover from recent violence. This does not concern the USA so let others, if they wish, take action.

    There are muslim terrorists, there are christian terrorist, and there are jewish terrorists. There are terrorists of every religion.

    The terrorists are in fact fundamentalists and there you find the root of the problems. Where there are fundamentalists there are a people for recruitment for terrorist groups.

    Yes, I do. Now answer my question.

    [edit]
    Just to expand on that, I think the current philosophy of violence under the 'rules of war' is ridiculous. I think the concept that killing soldiers is 'OK', but harm one supposedly innocent civilian or politician and you have committed a grave crime is fundamentally flawed.
    I think a sophisticated and highly capable military like the US, should in the case of more formal warfare against nations, concentrate solely on assassinating the leaders.

    This scenario creates huge amounts of martyrs. Every one of these will cause revenge. USA will suffer.

    Remember we are talking about fundamentalists.

    If there are any volunteers willing to try, then I say, "May God bless them."
