Hot Spots!

The Middle East and Arab states are not the only hot spot in the world. While the strife in Iraq
 spills over from Syria, trouble in Nigeria continues to escalate.

Nigeria came to our attention when 200 school girls were abducted in a single event last month.
 This came as a shock; however, the greater shock has been the Nigerian government's lack of
 response to the problem. At the beginning various conflicting reports came out, but after time it
 was clear that the Nigerian government were not in a position to do anything about the situation
 in northern Nigeria.

During this time and since on a nearly daily basis local Nigerians have died in terrorist attacks
 run by Boko Haram, yet another unknown until recently terrorist group. Like a lot of today's
 terrorists the organization seeks to establish a "pure" Islamic state ruled by sharia, putting an
 end to what it deems Westernisation. The Boko Haram leadership has international connections
 to Al-Qaeda via Al-Shabab, the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa.


When a politician says "the situation in Saudi Arabia is very complex", this is a synonym for we
 sell arms to Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia supply arms to ISIS...
