The African caliphate is on the march —
Boko Haram’s official name is “Group of the People of Sunnah [Example] for Preaching and Jihad.” Remember that when the President and his organ grinders’ monkeys in the media are telling you that this is not Islamic. Oh, and don’t forget their logo with the two symbols of Islam.

Al Jizz is reporting; Boko Haram ‘stronger than Nigerian army’
Rebels are better armed that government forces, says governor of region where 100 people were killed in a recent attack.

“Boko Haram are better armed and are better motivated than our own troops,” said Kashim Shettima after a meeting on Monday with President Goodluck Jonathan.

“Given the present state of affairs, it is absolutely impossible for us to defeat Boko Haram,” Shettima was quoted by Reuters news agency as saying.

And they are massing —

“Boko Haram Are Massing For Battle – Reports, ” Sky News, March 6, 2015
The Islamist militants are said to be gathering at their headquarters in Gwozo to prepare for an offensive with security forces.
Boko Haram militants are gathering en masse in the northeast Nigerian town of Gwoza in preparation for a showdown with international forces, according to an intelligence officer.

The source said security forces from Chad are in the area and moving slowly for fear of harming civilians and because the Islamist group is surrounding the town with landmines.

A woman trapped in Gwoza since it was seized in July told her daughter that last week the group urged civilians to leave the town to avoid being killed in crossfire in an anticipated battle.

Hajiya Adama said her mother said the fighters were releasing young women being held against their will, including some made pregnant during their captivity.

She said her mother left Gwoza last week and escaped to the town of Yola, in the neighbouring state of Adamawa.

Boko Haram declared an Islamic caliphate across a swath of northeast Nigeria last August and continue to kill dozens in suicide bombings and village attacks, though troops from Chad and Nigeria have retaken dozens of towns in recent weeks.

Safety has come at a heavy price for tens of thousands of Nigerians who have fled the fighting and are now sheltering in neighbouring Cameroon.

Many of them scratch around for food and complain bitterly at the shortage of water in the huge refugee camp north of Maroua which is now their home.

Retaking Gwoza would be a major coup for Nigeria and for the campaign of President Goodluck Jonathan for re-election at critical 28 March ballots.

The polls have been delayed for six weeks in the hope the threat from Boko Haram can be more adequately contained.

The six-year conflict in Nigeria has killed an estimated 12,000 people and left 1.6 million people homeless.

    At least at the present it’s obvious where to drop the bombs. Sadly we are not involved

  • ReaganAK47

    Muslims have declared war against the rest of the world. The rest of the world still thinks it’s a joke.

    • Flyercrazy

      The longer we wait the more the scum will get the upper hand. Problem is we have a leader who wants just that.

    Another JV team that is playing and winning in the big league. This is the group that Shitlary and imam obama origially refused to classify as a terrorist group.

    And the BiG 0 forbade Israel fro selling helicopters to Nigeria to help fight them.

    More muslims crapping in their own nest. Why is it our problem? I don’t believe these animals are a threat to the US.

      Some of us realize they will expand their war, the more they win.

      The first reason this matters to many is the fact that a large portion of those affected by Boko Haram are, in fact Christians and other non-Muslims.

      The reason you should care is the Muslims in Nigeria are a small part of a much larger problem, worldwide. And, yes, it is going to affect you in the US. Elements of this movement have hundreds of training camps here, in the US, already. It’s not going away because you ignore it.

        Would you let a cancerous growth metastasize? This is its equivalent. And it is spreading. It won’t stop there. It must be eradicated. Period.

    Brighten the corner where they are ;)

    If they KNOW they are massing , if they KNOW where they are , if they KNOW they are preparing for battle then WHY wait. Just send in the bombers and blow them all to their waiting virgins.

    You can choose to believe Islam is not a war with you, your beliefs are your choice.

    You may even escape the problems associated with the war you choose to ignore…your children won’t.

      Someday, our children and grandchildren will be in a life and death struggle with Islam……:
