The people of nigeria are beiong terrorised by boko harem who seem to be deluded as to what they are doing...
When they blow up a church, are there people inside? Is it gods will to stop worship of another god, or the same god, how you look at it? Will this ever be resolved? They will be fighting for years to get sharia law, but the way to get sharia is to petition for it. If they were to form a party and then try to get elected, that would be decent, but the way to get people's attention is to way lay them with your love, as an example of what is right to do.
These people will be hunted down. I suggest that they all go house to house smelling for manure, as that is a crucial ingredient in home made bombs. Maybe these people need some love? If they were to go house to house making friends with each other, it would bring the community closer together and make them happier - now that they have something to lose. If not, maybe subliminal messages in radio shows would stop them? Nothing wrong with that, it is for a good cause - all that needs to happen is for the state to support it and allow it.
Of course there will be some that do not listen. Where do these leaders come from? Are christian people not as good? Don't they also want peace? It is easy to blow something up, but that building feeds people. They ae robbing the people of their food, creating suffering, and stuff. Of course there is no insurance for this, so they will have to pay out of their own pocket for all the repairs. This harms people! They should fight for god, which means protecting the people he made. They should feed people, the people their god made. God does not make people to be killed!
If they were to be fighting a real enemy, they would be fighting the state. What do the people have to do with the state? They should try to get results, and you don't get that by blowing things up, that is a regression. If they were to be tools of the devil, who burns and murders, they would not enter heaven.
On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with sharia law, and it decreases the crime rate. This is backed by evidence too! If they were to suceed and then make their own region, or country, they could have sharia law for the massive population of muslims there. Is that what they want? Simply fall back and enlist army people of the sharia dictum and then you will have an army ready to fight for their laws, and lifestyle. If that is what they want, go for it. There has been a civil war for so long, and now there can be peace. Simply fall back and have it yor way!
Of course there might be some problems with the state. They might lose resources, so that is where the fight comes from. They would at this stage I am sure just throw them their democracy, and they will save a lot of money too. Think about the lifestyle the leaders will lead, problem free. Think of the people, total peace. It is up to the state to suceed and give thier respective people their peace. It is their job to sucees and end the war...
How much is one life worth? How many lives will they save? What do they care about? Power and money, it is not theirs - they don't even get to use it. They don't go down to the ports and get paid for their goods, they merely tax them. The gdp will fall, and the standard of living will go up. What else can they do to give people the peace they want, the lifestyle they want? If a life is worth anything, then try to save it. Continuing with this war is intolerable, but, at the same time, the harem fights for peace! They are killing people and stuff, and they need to prioritise. If they want the people to live in peace, they need to stop this war too. This is a matter of politics, and guns do not enforce politics, they distort them. If they were to stop fighting and let the cease fire go through, and let the state give them some land to live on, and if they were serious about loving people at all, they would go for it.
