This happened a few weeks ago but seems to have taken time to get to the top of the headlines. I did hear about it when it happend (BBC world service) and the more I think about it the more sick it makes me feel. There isn't any particular need to take of right and wrong on this but there is another question. The Nigerian government is finally edging towards asking for some assistance in this matter. No doubt there are sattelites looking now and possibly reconnaissance drones in action already. Does anyone here object to western involvement and would you support the deployment of special forces if requested by Nigeria?
