here’s your sign

#OhGod

On May 7, 2014 Michelle Obama added her voice to worldwide calls for the safe return of over 200 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls. The First Lady tweeted: ‘Our prayers are with the missing Nigerian girls and their families. It’s time to #BringBackOurGirls.” The tweet was signed “-mo,” indicating that she sent it herself.

Am I the only one who finds this picture not just pathetic but more than a bit embarrassing?

After all, they aren’t “our girls”. They’re Nigeria’s.

And dollars to donuts, they’re either already dead, or already sold off as slave brides.

And the strongest nation in history - ours - all we can do here is to put up a picture of sad eyed Mooch holding a Twitter sign??

I’m not seeing much condemnation on the TV news about why Boko Haram did what they did and is saying what they are saying. Oh noes, can’t have that. We must all look the other way and pretend they aren’t following a playbook straight out of the koran, word for bloody word:

The girls have not been seen since Boko Haram militants abducted them on April 14 from the Government Girls Secondary School in rural Chibok, about 80 miles (130 kilometers) west of Maiduguri and some 600 miles from the capital of Abuja.

That was followed on Sunday night by another kidnapping, with villagers in Warabe accusing Boko Haram militants of taking at least eight girls between the ages of 12 and 15.

Boko Haram’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, took credit in a video that surfaced this week for the mass kidnappings.

“I abducted your girls,” he taunted in the video, first obtained by Agence France Presse. “There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell.”

Meanwhile, I don’t really think Nigeria cares much, one way or the other. But they’re being forced into pro-Western posturing, and who knows, they’ll probably get another zillion dollars in aid money out of this.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan pledged on Thursday to find more than 200 schoolgirls abducted by Islamist rebels, saying their rescue would mark “the beginning of the end of terrorism” in the country.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) being hosted in the capital Abuja, President Jonathan also thanked foreign nations including the US, Britain, France and China for their support in trying to rescue the girls, who were kidnapped from a secondary school on April 14.

He also thanked the delegates for coming despite the terrorist threat facing Nigeria, saying that it would show that the terrorists hadn’t won.

But there are voices, active intelligent voices, kicking up a fuss. Nobel Peace Prize non-winner Malala Yousefazi being one of them ...

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girls’ education campaigner who was shot by the Taliban, says “the world must not stay silent” over the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped in in Nigeria three weeks ago

Pakistani girls’ education campaigner Malala Yousafzai in an interview with the BBC has called on the international community to do more to help the girls kidnapped over three weeks ago by Islamist Boko Haram militants in Nigeria.

The abduction which happened on April 15 has sparked international outrage and mounting demands for Nigeria to spare no effort to find and free the girls before they can be sold into slavery or otherwise harmed.

Nigeria’s police have said more than 300 girls were abducted from their secondary school in the country’s remote northeast. Of that number, 276 remain in captivity and 53 managed to escape.

Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban as she boarded her school bus in the valley of Swat, northwest Pakistan after she spoke publicly about girls’ rights to education.

UPDATE

Now, Boko Haram may be going after those trying to find the girls. On Thursday, Nigerian police said one officer was shot in the neck during a gunfight with suspected members of the group on the road between Maiduguri and Chibok.

And on Monday, Boko Haram attacked Gamboru Ngala, a remote state capital near Nigeria’s border with Cameroon that has been used as a staging ground for troops in the search for the girls. Some of the at least 310 victims were burned alive.

The assault fits a pattern of revenge-seeking by Boko Haram against those perceived to disagree with the group or those who have provided aid to the Nigerian government.

310 victims? As in, dead? This is a major massacre. Why isn’t it the top news story around the world? Oh, right, I know. Because it’s Africa. Where this kind of feral barbarity happens every day. Nothing new here at all. But it shows you who is the Strong Horse here, don’t it? And it ain’t the Nigerian Army, who just got played by what had to be a huge force of terrorists.

The town of Gamboru Ngala, near the border with Cameroon, was crowded with traders for the market day on Monday when the suspect Islamist militants attacked.

Senator Ahmed Zanna told the BBC’s Hausa service that they arrived in a convoy of vehicles, shooting, stealing food and motorbikes and burning hundreds of cars and buildings during their rampage.

Another resident said they were shouting “Allahu Akbar [God is great]”.

The militants had used a diversionary tactic to get the security forces out of Gamboru Ngala by spreading rumours that the abducted schoolgirls had been spotted somewhere else, Mr Zanna and several residents said.

A resident of Gamboru Ngala told the BBC that 310 people had been buried on Tuesday and Wednesday.


310 dead here. 2000 or more since these terrorists started things up in 2009. And all Obama’s America will do for “our people” in “the motherland” is Tweet a picture of some dumbshit hashtag sign. Wow. Impressive.

UPDATE on the UPDATE:
What, does Rush read BMEWS?

Here it is again, closer. See it? Is that not pathetic? What the hell message does that send? Imagine if bin Laden were still alive. Imagine Ayman al-Zawahiri. Can you imagine? They’re laughing at this over in the huts and so forth wherever they are. It is just unbelievable. #BringBackOurGirls. They’re Nigerian, unless there’s something that we don’t know.

Yeah, like I said. 2 days before him.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
