… #BlackLivesDoMatter [#overseas][#Africa][#Nigeria]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 14th,2016

.. especially in Nigeria .

.. the Nigerians have made terrific progress . They have worked to make themselves into a multiethnic and multireligious democracy , even after decades of juntas and dictatorships . Nigeria is both Christian and Muslim , but one faith does not dominate the other . Also , they are not the only faiths . Even so , no faith makes up a majority of the country ‘ s population …

.. Nigeria is working hard to diversify their society and their economy . Nigeria is a member of OPEC , but it is not a major one . They produce substantial oil for export and sale to others , but they are moving fast to diversify their economy away from being an oil – based econmony . Not without some hiccups , though . Corruption is a serious problem , even now …

.. however , they also have big problems . The Boko Haram insurgency is not helping the situation any . The Bokos would like to make Nigeria over into an entirely Islamic state , with no Christians allowed . That would not do …

.. the other significant problem for the Nigerians is the gross lack of strategic foresight by the ObamaCrap Administration . The ObamaCraps have granted limited aid to Nigeria . The Nigerians need so much more , without being overly intrusive . They deserve a whole lot more . The problem is that the ObamaCraps are strategically obtuse , and do not get the message , and the picture ..

.. hopefully , the new Congress will be far more helpful . Also , the ObamaCrap will finally get their act together . I am far more hopeful of the former than of the latter …

… Wonderful — Boko Haram has declared itself a “Caliphate” [#joke]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 5th,2016

.. not another one …

.. unfortunately , yes .

.. this one could well stick around awhile …

.. you may ask why ? Nigeria is an oil producer , a member of O.P.E.C. , and has significant resources . They are a democratic nation now , but they are notoriously corrupt and disgusted …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. Nigeria is very near sub – Saharan Africa . It is roughly a part of Africa ‘ s ” belt buckle ” [meaning Nigeria , Niger , Chad , and Sudan]…. there are 53 nation – states in Africa , but most are small in size and in population . Nigeria is neither . it is fairly large in size , but at 180 million people , it is by far Africa ‘ s largest nation ….

.. it is also deeply split , like many nations , by religion . Two – thirds of Nigeria is Christian , and the Christian areas are where the oil resources are at . One – third of the nation is Muslim , and that is where the trouble usually lies …. the Christians usually can live with each other in peace , but the Muslims unfortunately cannot …

… Why is POTUS pawning off his Weekly Address on FLOTUS …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 15th,2014

.. POTUS should be doing his own weekly addresses , he should not be pawning them off on his wife …

.. especially on an important subject like the Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria ..

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the video segment // blog news …

.. I will tell you why … Boko Haram and their fellow compatriots in the Saharan area of Africa are trying to tie together their efforts . What they are doing is extremely violent , and the ObamaCraps are doing nothing about it …

… Bam ! Nice Shot , John Bolton …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 15th,2014

.. John Bolton was in an interview the other day on the FoxNewsChannel , and he called out the ObamaCraps and Miz Hillary on the carpet about their actions regarding Nigeria and Boko Haram …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the interview footage ..

.. Bolton nails them on the head for their excuses for not labeling Boko Haram a terrorist group much , much earlier . It may not have prevented the kidnapping of the girls in the north of Nigeria , but it sure as heck would have made the response to the event a whole lot more robust and quicker …

… Hey , Folks ! … Boko Haram is ….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 13th,2014

.. a terror group of the first order ..

.. they are muslim , yes , but they are Nigerian by origin .

.. Nigeria is an incredibly diverse country . It is more than 55% Christian , but it has a significant (more than 30%) muslim minority . Which is where Boko Haram comes in . They are so violent , they make Al Qaeda look like a bunch of choir boys .

.. unfortunately Nigeria has not been the most stable of nations . It has know significant stretches of dictatorships for much of its history . The setbacks have held Nigeria back , it being Africa ‘ s largest nation , in terms of population , and Africa ‘ s largest economy . Maybe now , Nigeria is truly turning the corner , but the political violence of the insurgency in the northeast of the country is not helping one bit ..

.. Boko Haram has struck this time , with a vengeance . They have kidnapped 300 Christian girls from a residential school dormitory , and have fled into the countryside . They are threatening to sell them as slaves and as ” wives ” to their militant adherents …

.. this is as sick as it gets …
