I agree with every word you wrote.

Now. What about the girls? And why should we be forbidden, or are foolish, to discuss the beasts who are carrying out the will of the Western and Asian powers you speak of?
Who has said that you "should be forbidden, or are foolish to discuss the beasts who are carrying out the will of the Western and Asian powers spoken of" ?

Not who, but what?
Answer: Your "dismissive of the abductions" reply to this post:

Nigeria's military has been hunting the Boko Haram for almost a decade and can't eliminate them, and 2) Nigeria's military has ADMITTED they are incapable of defeating the Boko Haram.

Surely folk aren't saying that because the Western powers want Nigerian oil that no one should care about the 200 abducted girls about to sold into sexual slavery? Or feel it matters not whether Nigerians of both sexes (the boys at the agricultural college who were murdered) get an education?

No one is saying any of that... But recognize that their is an international conflict going on between China/Russia and America... and African resources are supremely important. The growing Chinese presence in Africa is a huge sore spot for the West.. along with China's roll out of their first Aircraft carriers.. and China's position regarding American currency. American's heightened concern with Africa has to do with the American government looking for an overt occupation of Africa.

And recognizing that, when I see the way this story is being handled by the American Press machine, it signals to me that there is more to this than what lies on the surface.

thats what folks are saying..

Oh please. I'm out and done. Nothing disrespectful in my post. Kiss it!
Actually.. there was nothing disrespectful in her post either.. that "Kiss it!" though is a tad bit disrespectful.. If you can't handle challenges to your point of view, you should probably stop challenging the views of others... #justsaying.

When you join a thread at the 23rd page, there really is no point in saying again what has already been said. My focus on the larger context is not dismissive of the abduction.. And no one should take my discussing a different aspect of this situation as dismissive of the aspect that they themselves wish to discuss. It's not a zero sum game..

One could as easily say that when you join a thread on the 23rd page, one should at the least, ACKNOWLEDGE what has already been discussed before attempting to take the conversation in a different direction. Anything less and its disrespectful of the opinions expressed on pages 1-23.

Well needless to say.. I completely disagree with that.. and as a result, I will continue to plant my contributions the way I see fit.. and I'm sure you'll do the same.

In case nobody seen it, Boko Haram supposedly released a video purporting to show the kidnapped school girls.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
