    Just a thought: in Nigeria as in other impacted areas could one conclude unintended consequences from Libyan adventure – no good deed goes unpunished.

    Nigeria, with its relatively strong economy and oil wealth ought to be able to put in the field a respectable counter-terrorism force. Its failure to do so shows not Nigeria’s poverty, but its sclerotic and corrupt governmental system. Ultimately, Nigeria needs to address the threat of radical Islam in its north, as much by propaganda as by military means.

    Nigeria cannot afford to ignore the religious character of its internal terrorist threat, and should use both Christian missionary activity and peaceful Muslim leaders to erode the power and support base of Islamic terrorists.

    History suggests that President Jonathon will need more than good luck to win this battle.
