I came across this video last week Friday and it weakened me so much I took an involuntary nap because my head simply couldn't process what I had just seen. The video showed several Boko Haram members on the streets of a town up North, shooting sporadically with heavy and sophisticated weapons. I was gobsmacked at their calm yet deadly lackadaisical attitudes and the manner in which they casually strutted down the streets, clearly with a mission in mind. Even more shocking was seeing them loot what appears to be the armory in an abandoned army barrack. Clearly, we have been indirectly supplying these deluded bunch of damaged fellows the weapons they in turn use to attack us. It was heartbreaking. And if all that was not bad enough, the video showed two hapless soldiers fleeing into the hills.
It would take a really cruel judge to condemn those two for fleeing seeing the baying bloodthirsty misguided crowd that were relentlessly out to get them. I wonder if they managed to escape, eventually. :( One of them appeared to have been hit because these terrorists kept on shooting at them even as they fled. The end of the video showed some plain clothed people laid face down and I shudder to think of what those beasts would have done to them.
I wish our government would wipe off these scums once and for all. It is frightening to imagine them taking over the entire country. I cannot imagine the terror the Northerners have been facing this whole time. It is gut-wrenching, just imagining it talk less of living it. Most of them appeared so young and so casually dressed for "war", but it makes sense now when we see the army display pictures of their bullet-ridden bodies and we have to wonder if there hasn't been cases of mistaken identity because we think they don't look like the dreaded and feared terrorist they are. Sigh.
