    It is in the interest of the US govt to prevent alqeda inspired boko haram from having a foot hold in Nigeria. Hilary and other officials in State dept should quit playing the ostrich and give BH, the raw deal they richly deserve. Playing it down will haunt the US in the long like Afghanistan. In any case, this US administration by special grace of God will end this year and a new republican govt that understand the muslim threat will soon take over.

If all muslims were to engage in these attacks den there would b total chaos nd anarchy! And no christian would remain in d north! This is d absolute truth! Be objective
