Africa Rocked By Another Terrorist Attack

  • If the Great Powers really cared about peace, especially our Nobel laureate, they would at least pay lip service, preferably actually take action against, the ideology at the core of ALL violence globally: islam.

    Islam is a cancer in the body of the human race.

    It’s time to surgical remove it …. or irradiate it until it is toast..

    That’s it Boko Haram is gone now. Such acts of pointless, horrific violence are the kinds of acts that led to the Sunni uprising in Iraq (i.e. when the Sunnis were on OUR side for a little while). They’ve now alienated most Muslims and every Christian in the Nigeria and it is only a matter of time before they driven out of Nigeria. That is not to say that it won’t take years and a whole lot more violence before they are gone, but they now have no chance at winning with war of public opinion in Nigeria, among Christians or Muslims. I am constantly astonished at how terrorists organizations shoot themselves in the foot time and time again when, had they bit a little bit more restrained, they could have won the hearts and minds of large segments of their target population. They are not just violent, evil fanatics, they are stupid, violent evil fanatics and my heart goes out to the families of those killed.
