Bring Back Our Girls

"The Christian Post confirmed what other reports have not made clear," and what this blogger suspected from day one — Majority of Kidnapped Girls in Nigeria Christians: Is Boko Haram Engaged in a War on Christians? Of course, "the explicitly anti-Christian nature of the kidnapping is receiving little press," and the story is by no means new — Christian girls kidnapped and Islamized, schools targeted by Boko Haram.

Of course, these are only "our" girls in the sense that they are our coreligionists. I would not support military intervention, which is where I fear this is leading. I would, however, support private interventionism, à la Abraham Lincoln Brigade meets the Crusades. I would not go myself, having a wife and kids to support here, and I would not send anyone else's sons over there against their will. I would, however, put some money in the hat for those willing to form a private militia to send the Boko Haram scum to Jahannam.
