Keeping up with all the ongoing stories that are not being properly reported in mainstream media is becoming a full time job for more than one person. Reporting news should be providing jobs for people but since the corporate owned media abandoned the truth in favour of propaganda and celebrity chit chat, print sales and TV advertising revenue have plummeted while the task of “speaking truth to power” fall to enthusiatic (and I have to say, extremely talented) amateurs like the people who contribute to Machiavelli /Boggart Blog / The Daily Stirrer, Anna Raccoon, Dick Puddlecoat, Guido Fawkes, RINF and many others.
One story that has slipped away from us recently as we have tried to bring you a fair and balanced view of the Ched Evans With Hunt, the <a href="Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack, and the collapse of the Petrodollar has been the progress of the Boko Haram rebellion in Nigeria.
Thought they were just another bunch of nutters who did a few kidnappings and a few bomb outrages and then went away did you. Well you thought wrong.
Boko Haram controls about 20,000 square miles of territory and is fast becoming a terrorist state razing villages and killing innocent victims
After days of razing villages and pitiless massacre, Boko Haram finished the first week of a new year week with its most horrifying atrocity to date.
A witness said the girl probably had no idea that a bomb had been strapped to her body.
The explosion just before lunch killed 20, including the girl, and injured 18, according to the police.
Boko Haram did not immediately claim the attack, but the Islamic insurgents have increasingly used young girls as human bombs as they carve an African “Caliphate from the plains of northern Nigeria.
Today, Boko Haram controls about 20,000 square miles of territory – an area the size of Belgium. Within this domain, the black flag of jihad flies over scores of towns and villages scattered across the neighbouring states of Borno and Yobe.
The latest conquest was the fishing town of Baga on the shores of Lake Chad, which fell to the Islamists last Wednesday.
“For five kilometres (three miles), I kept stepping on dead bodies until I reached Malam Karanti village, which was also deserted and burnt, one surviving fisherman, Yanaye Grema, said.
Boko Haram’s fighters have now achieved mastery over 11 local government areas with a total population exceeding 1.7 million people, according to the official 2006 census.
Once, the movement’s fighters would launch hit-and-run attacks on defenceless villages. Now, Boko Haram’s realm stretches from the Mandara Mountains on the eastern border with Cameroon to Lake Chad in the north and the Yedseram river in the west.
The Nigerian army, crippled by corruption and incompetence, has shown itself unable to resist the jihadist advance.
Last September, Abubakar Shekau, the self-styled “Emir of Boko Haram, proclaimed his ambition to conquer a “Caliphate and follow the example of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
So once again we see that another terrorist group funded and armed by the Obama administration in Washington has developed way beyond Washington’s ability to control them and so the masterplan to destabilize Nigeria so American corporations could grab control of that country’s oil, natural resources and agriculture looks like creating yet another African failed state.
When Politicians Don’t Have A Clue How To Deal With A Problem They Pretend It Does Not Exist.
Mass Immigration, Islamification of European Societies, extremist terrorism, the creation of ghettos in western cities and widespread civil unrest. And yet the political, media and academic elities still resuse to acknowledge that their ‘open door’ immigration policies are causing major problems.
