I've seen a couple of documentaries about the wars in the African continent. The UN, the US, and other Western powers should be disgusted with our lack of intervention.

In the ME, there was a HUGE stink made about Christians being persecuted and killed for not converting to Islam by ISIS. On social media there was talk about why aren't we deploying there to deal with them and end the senseless bloodshed for our fellow Christians? Here are 200 women who were doing nothing other than trying to get an education and they were kidnapped and held. FLOTUS made #BRINGBACKOURGIRLS. She took heat from that, and she became a lot of memes at the time over it. Maybe if Boko Haram decided to kidnap a few doctors, kill a few THOUSAND more Christians, or whatever keeps our attention in the ME for the next five minutes we'd find the internal fortitude to go after them and deal with it once and for all. The AU isn't doing anything. But if we put some massive oil fields out there, doctors without borders, and whatever else is popular to get the attention of congress those girls would be found in two months max. In three months Boko Haram would cease to exist, but we won't go there. The ROI isn't there, and the American public wants ME blood.
