Boko Haram Kills 2,500, Takes 500 Women and Children as Rape-Prisoners

#BringBackOurReportage -- the American media is hostile to this story and simply will not report it, because it would painfully stomp on their preferred #ObamaIsBack storyline.

The destruction is so great that you can see it from orbit-- satellite pictures show 3700 buildings razed to the ground in two towns.

Marie Harf won't bring it up on her own -- I saw a report that she never brings up Boko Haram, and will only discuss it when badgered by reporters -- but she did opine yesterday that this isn't Obama's fault because Nigeria is Nigeria's problem.

Well, there is some truth in that; but then, it is also an evasion. And then there's this:

133 Foreign policy is not something Obama wants to be distracted with as he styles himself the second coming of LBJ. He wants to work on domestic policy, transforming America, however the rest of the world won't go all quiet and let him. Not that he will pay any attention to the rest of the world unless he absolutely must, but it is an annoyance and doubly irritating if someone should be impertinent enough to bring it up.

Fortunately he and his are nowhere near as legislatively skilled as LBJ (or Jimmy Carter, for that matter) so he can't get his domestic policy enacted with any near the staying power that LBJ's policies have and must rely on something as flimsy as his memoranda and orders.

134 The New York Post said its Twitter account was hacked after messages were posted citing bogus breaking news about U.S. interest-rate policy and China firing missiles on a U.S. Navy ship.

The newspaper's Sunday business editor tweeted "Our Twitter feed has been hacked." The company then sent a statement that said, "Some New York Post Twitter accounts were briefly hacked and the matter is being investigated." Twitter didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

One tweet said "#BREAKING: Chinese anti-ship missile fired at USS George Washington." Another tweet said: "BREAKING: Federal Reserve head Yellen announces bail-in in emergency meeting, rumored negative rate to be set at 4pm EST today."

183 @142 - WASHINGTON DC - Today the EPA issued new regulations regarding the discharge of bodily fluids during judicial punishment.

In a brief press conference, EPA chief Gina McCarthy said "This provides the regulatory leverage needed to bring certain practices by certain groups (whom I'm not otherwise allowed to name) under Federal control."

Under the new regulations, judicial punishment involving the potential displacement of skin, blood, mucus, or other bodily tissues or fluids will require an Environmental Impact Report to be filed with and approved by a court of competent jurisdiction, with 90-day public notice required for all hearings held under the ruling.

Those who believe themselves to be targeted under this regulation were nonplussed. 'Well, I guess we'll just fucking ship them to as container cargo before we behead them, then?' said one member of one group.

213 Boko Haram killed almost as many people this week as the Spanish Inquisition did in 400 years.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Inquisition#Death_tolls

During the entirety of the Span. Inquisition (almost 400 years) 150k were brought up in charges and about 2% executed.

That'd be about 3k vs 2.5k this week for Boko Haram.

Boko Haram killed about 11k in 2014.

I'm attempting to envision the effect upon one of the Navy's new LCS vessels of firing a 16-inch gun.

Given that the combined recoil of nine of those guns could visibly move an _Iowa_ class battleship sideways in the water during a broadside... well, I'm not a naval architect, but I quite seriously assume the forces from that one shot would tear apart a Little Crappy Ship like the wrapper of a truck stop microwave burrito.

Little Crappy Ships, with their ridiculously puny armament, and lack of armor protection, being meant as a mainstay of the Navy from here on out. Wonderful news.

Of course if you were cynical, one might think this shields the Feds from explaining where they got their information that was passed on to the State and locals.

Sure, we can hit a gnat's ass with a $1.4 mm cruise missile, but we deploy them very selectively.

When someone's acting up it was nice to be able to park nine 16" guns that can throw a shell the size of a Volkswagen over 20 miles off their coast.

366 "We may be looking at full Caliphate stretching from Africa to Afghanistan within ten years."

There was once an national military in Africa which was the best equipped and best trained on the continent. Outside observers said of them that if they ever felt the need, they could fight from the Cape to Cairo in ninety days. Some said sixty days. The government which controlled that military would have taken no crap from the likes of Boko Haram or Somali pirates.

But, the regime in question was deemed Teh Rayciss and politically incorrect by Our Betters, and was done away with.

Now that same military has tank sheds filled with immobile unmaintained vehicles. Parade ground formations where 75% of the infantry are dependent upon HIV antivirals. And a bunch of spiffy shiny new fighter jets which can't fly because there aren't adequate numbers of trained pilots.

Meanwhile, crimes infinitely worse than those committed by said government have gone on throughout most of the rest of Africa since it was driven from power.

419 @383 - pretty much anything you can pump out of the 16in would go far enough to clear out the coast 30 miles inland. If you're off Somalia those guys on the speedboats have to realize their stashes, homes, and families have just been incinerated, my guess is they're zigzagging into the distance in a hell of a hurry.

I'd focus on safety, reliability, and HE blast.

Local protection is a matter of being able to cost-effectively deal with whatever crap is going to come at you from second-rate sources. Think quick and cheap AA arty is going to be the best bang for the buck.

A navalized Iron Dome could be interesting, but I think it's as dependent on its sensor network as its missiles and afloat is a much different game (maybe easier, but I'll leave that to the experts) than ashore.

428 Nigeria is little more complex than our media betters have stooped to inform us. Boko Haram doesn't exist in a vacuum, as some evil wind blowing in from the steppes. The Northern states are Muslim majority and strongholds of the opposition. Their Governors are Muslim and opposition leaders.

The people being attacked are generally not supporters of said Muslim Governors and opposition party(s). Imagine that.

Frequently, these attacks by "the wily insurgents who can't be tracked" are preceded by the local police and army units (controlled by the Governors) evacuating. While Boko Haram exists, it wouldn't have anywhere near the potency it has exhibited without the simmering civil war about to start beneath it.

Their logic is that 35k people die in car accidents every year in America - so a few dozen or hundred dying a year in terror attacks really isn't that big a deal. We should just get used to it like we got used to 35k ppl dying a year in car crashes.

459 Right, Boko Haram is seizing territory for Muslims by religiously cleansing territory of Christians. They kill tens of thousands, but they win territory by convincing hundreds of thousands and millions of Christian Nigerians to move South in to the Christian areas for protection.

Of course, lots of Muslim Nigerians are moving South to cause the economy is better in the Christian South.

Same way Muslim nations cleans their territory of non-muslims -- and also send out muslim settlers to colonize the West. They purify their territory while infecting ours.

Posted by: Buzzsaw at January 16, 2015 02:55 PM (Mxs5H)"

I believe that during WW II there was an occasion when a Japanese destroyer was being chased by an Iowa class battleship. Every time the 16 inch guns fired, the destroyer would do a hard turn to one side or the other and by the time the shells arrived a few minutes later, that destroyer was somewhere else.

479 Their logic is that 35k people die in car accidents every year in
America - so a few dozen or hundred dying a year in terror attacks
really isn't that big a deal. We should just get used to it like we got
used to 35k ppl dying a year in car crashes.


A couple thousand US homicides committed with firearms, and we have to ban guns. A hundred thousand homicides committed in the name of Mohammed, we just need to give them more free shit.

485 "If you want range from artillery, revive the subcaliber sabot research program that was being done for the 16 inch rifles before all the Iowa class ships were decommissioned. I believed that they were firing 13 inch shells from the 16 inch guns and they were working to test 11 inch shells from the 16 inch guns to a range of over a hundred miles."

(cough) Excalibur GPS-guided round technology (cough)

Thus: 11 inch shell to over a hundred miles with a circular error probable so small you could spit across it.

Hate to break it to you, but Dreadnought was the name of a ship and not a class of ships.

At least, not in the real world.

And in any event, the USS South Carolina, which was already being built when the Dreadnought was launched, made the Dreadnought obsolete.

492 Perhaps a few of the Boko Haram group got a bit rambunctious and overstepped the bounds of good taste, but I don't know if we should paint the entire tribe with such a wide brush.

Some of these people have been socially and economically disadvantaged, which could lead to behavior that, at times, falls below what we would hope for. But is that their fault or ours?

Certainly, vandalism of any type should be discouraged and if some damage occurred to villages those actions should be condemned. So too should taking women allegedly "against their will". Hasn't history taught us to wait until all the facts are in on something like this?

Our main concern now should be that all the negative reporting doesn't endanger the vast majority of peaceful and law-abiding Boko Haram members.

@383 - pretty much anything you can pump out of the 16in would go far
enough to clear out the coast 30 miles inland. If you're off Somalia
those guys on the speedboats have to realize their stashes, homes, and
families have just been incinerated, my guess is they're zigzagging into
the distance in a hell of a hurry.



I'd focus on safety, reliability, and HE blast.



Local protection is a matter of being able to cost-effectively deal
with whatever crap is going to come at you from second-rate sources.
Think quick and cheap AA arty is going to be the best bang for the buck.




A navalized Iron Dome could be interesting, but I think it's as
dependent on its sensor network as its missiles and afloat is a much
different game (maybe easier, but I'll leave that to the experts) than
ashore.





Posted by: JEM at January 16, 2015 02:57 PM (o+SC1)"

One of the things I have often wondered about is whether you could make an effective AAA using the 16 inch guns loaded with beehive rounds. The rate of fire for the 16 inch guns is definitely slow for AAA but beehive will send out a cone shaped pattern which will be effective for hundreds of yards. If the guns are slaved to something like a CICS radar and computer, they could start engaging aircraft and cruise missiles miles out before they come within range of the CICS.


Rather than the Iron Dome, I would think that SM 3 missiles are already designed to protect ships from aircraft and missiles.

How much does the Excalibur cost? How many are in the inventory? The Excalibur is useful when you know where your high value target is. Subcaliber rounds are the way to go when you want to stand off 50 miles from shore and turn a zip code 50 miles inland into a smoking wasteland.
