President Obama Sends U.S. Forces Into Chad

Approximately 80 U.S. Armed Forces personnel have deployed to Chad as part of the U.S. efforts to locate and support the safe return of over 200 schoolgirls who are reported to have been kidnapped in Nigeria,” said the letter from Obama submitted to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate President Pro Tempore Pat Leahy (D-Vt.).

“These personnel will support the operation of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance aircraft for missions over northern Nigeria and the surrounding area,” Obama continued. “The force will remain in Chad until its support in resolving the kidnapping situation is no longer required.” (read more)

Shocking! You mean Boko Haram is a terrorist organization that we are now, finally, aiming our intelligence apparatus at? Really? I love the use of the word "Troops" for basically unarmed drone operations personnel. But, hey, most anything from our darling prince is better than nothing. I mean given he learned of all this on the evening news ....

Well, not quite. Maybe find them and deliver an personal explosive device up the ass of each perp, while leaving the girls untouched. Of course it won't be that easy.

But the perps may be defenseless against this sort of warfare. Like the Iraqis were unprepared for DU-armored Abrams tanks in the First Gulf War.

chickelit said...

If they do fight back effectively, it will be a neccessary early test and maybe our enemies will tip their hands.

This is my basic view, amplified by the fact that it is once again a mission directed at muslims, all 1.6 billion of whom seem to take these things personally. The world's policeman role has gotten old.

Nigeria seems to be either muslim majority or very close to muslim majority, so once again we are stepping into a religious war with no obvious economic benefits for us.

Bet he didn't say that about Labia or the Choom Gang's surge in A-stan.

PS There are 1.2 billion Catholics in the world and the Lefties have no problem with getting on their nerves.

Maybe because Catholics are civilized people.

Leland said...

So wasn't it yesterday that a story came out about Nigerian tribes men defending their families and killing 200 Boko Harem attackers (I think the defenders lost 300). Obama is sending in 80 troops? I guess that's a bit more force than #BringBackOurGirls, but I'm not finding the gesture to be anymore serious.

I'm good with this. You can't fix the entire world but you may as well make an effort to make some of it a little better.

If it goes south, sh*t happens.

Political theater, I mean something had to back up MO's hashtag, right.

You made me look up "venery". Depending on the source, several different interpretations of that word.

sakredkow said...

I don't think it is our problem. We're making it our problem.

It's a gamble and I think it's a good one, a lot of potential winners, esp. some school girls and their families. Next the US gets a little looooove from some of the better people in the world.

XRay said...

"sh*t happens." is usually dead soldiers/Marines/jet jockeys/squids/ambassadors of foreign countries. We shouldn't just accept that as normal. It's not. Value in return should be in magnitudes.

What we shouldn't accept as normal is people kidnapping hundreds of school children and doing what they want with them.

I agree there are risks but I think the return value is potentially in magnitudes.

I think even al Qaeda's rooting for us against these a$$holes.

Trooper York said...

What are you stoned? Nobody is going to cheer us. They hate us and always will. We shouldn't lose one American life over this. It is not our problem.

XRay said...

I think you didn't really think through what I said.

"I think even al Qaeda's rooting for us..."

Seriously.

Trooper York said...

We won't mobilize our troops to save our ambassador and our own people but we should ride to the rescue of people who have nothing to do with us? Fuck that noise

Trooper York said...

Send the troops to Chicago to save the children who are getting murdered there why don't you?

We'll we know why. Never mind.

chickelit said...

Troop, I think this is more a deployment of technology than troops.

XRay said...

" It is not our problem."

I don't disagree with this, at all.

But you know what, in a legitimate world, where facts mean more than emotions, it should be our problem.

But then we become 'Empire'. Which we have, and hopefully will in future, always distain.

It is complicated, how to be a beacon, yet subtle in such.

chickelit said...

They will deploy enough boots to protect what's being deployed. They're not even in the same country as the perps.

Trooper York said...

Not one robot should be lost over this nonsense. It is not our problem. How much money is this gonna cost?

I repeat it is not our problem.

Trooper York said...

If all the do-gooders are so worried let them pay for it.

Let Oprah pay for it. Don't stick us with the bill to massage Obamas ego.

sakredkow said...

You gotta be the good guys now and then, or there's no difference between you and China or Russia.

Can you imagine those guys doing this? Nope, and it's not because they're smart.

It's because they don't have a sense of morality in their foreign policy. And a lot of people in the world do. Even though some people Americans seem to think everyone in the world hates us, that's not exactly true.

XRay said...

"They're not even in the same country as the perps."

And as such it is sorta bullshit.

My Luddite takes over and calls to hell with this technology crap.

It's political, the whole damn thing. To become riled up about it either way is to give in to, again, bullshit.

This is true, the problem is that these things always have deeper dynamics that we typically step in rather than resolve.

If you look over the last 60 years it is rare that US involvement resulted in less loss of life than would have occurred with no involvement at all. Even if the triggering issue appears to have some moral clarity, as in the current example, US involvement usually ends up being ambiguous morally, because of the unintended consequences our involvement produces.

I supported the 'surge' in Afghanistan because it was the base for the worst attack on the US in a very long time and their had to be some effective reprisal. I supported the very modest involvement in Libya because major NATO allies were insistent on removing Gaddafi, who they perceived as a regional threat, and he was an unambiguous sponsor of terrorism against the US.

The same can be said for WWII.

Of course, that was the War To Save Communism.

Wasn't it?

sakredkow said...

I'm not disagreeing with you ARM - I only see what they let me see.

On its face it appears to be a reasonable and good play for us. But I only read the papers, I don't have my own fp advisors. So if someone knows that there's more to this story that needs to be told before we go in, then peace be with them, may their tribe increase. And don't listen to me.

sakredkow said...

You lose. I supported that invasion, up until the point I didn't anyway.

chickelit said...

I think so far you'll find broad support for the strategy: confront the perps rather than ignore them...and wildly different opinions on tactics of which we know very little.

Of course. If the Demos had told him he was supposed to be fer it, that would have been entirely different.

XRay said...

I have yet to read anything about strategy, long term. And wonder about tactics, given as how the troops in the field will likely have little say on that matter. Much as I didn't in my war. As it should be, to the regret of those who died.

That's exactly right. I didn't have the foresight of those who were against it from the beginning.

I think for even the possibility of a good outcome the US has to have some unambiguous self-interest. Otherwise we behave like easily distracted toddlers.

Rabel said...

It's the least he could do and still say he's doing something. A recon predator unit and a small security group protecting them. I'd be more comfortable with stronger security but I suppose we have the Chadian military covering our back. Right?

I'm surprised a little that there's anything significant to be gained from the predator that justifies even the small risk involved. Maybe there's not and it's all show.

Another downside is that Boko Haram may take a net gain from being seen as at war with the Great Satan.

William said...

The point of the Waco operation was to save the children. We had to burn the children alive in order to save them. Thank God it happened under a Democratic president, or there would have been a lot of negative publicity about the charred children. Janet Reno was praised for her courage in taking responsibility for such a hard decision........I hope the girls get rescued,and I hope we play a role. A lot of things could go terribly wrong. Obama is the ideal man to sign off on the mission. Not because he's especially competent or fearless but because, even if things go south, he will never, ever be blamed for anything. That gives him more room to maneuver than Bush.

"those who were against it from the beginning" were Democrat apparatchiks who were following orders.

The Left was worried that 90% approval would stick with Dubya and they couldn't have that, so they cooked up a sudden distaste for waterboarding and lied their faces off about the WMDs (which, as has been proven, were there).

chickelit said...

William said...

I guess I never realized that. I always thought the point was to humiliate the Branch Davidians and other armed Christian sects. Now that i think of it, Reno's other big failure centered around a child.

Knowing next to nothing about this, it sounds a hell of a lot less risky and interventionist than what Reagan was doing all up and down Central and South America thirty years ago.

Lydia said...

So, most of you here are like "meh" as far as the war on terror is concerned, it seems. Instead of doing anything to check the growth and power of these groups, we should do it in the Clinton way and wait for another 9/11. Is that your plan?

Boko Haram is growing in its reach and is probably affiliated with Al-Qaeda, and many security analysts believe Africa is fast becoming the new hub of global terrorism.

And Nigeria is not just another "shit hole." It's the most populous country in Africa, and has a larger economy than South Africa.

Icepick said...

Excuse me, Nigeria is the biggest shit hole in Africa (population-wise), and has a bunch of oil. In that case let's send a couple of armored divisions.

Yeah, too bad that worked.

This, of course, won't.

Icepick said...

You seem to have missed it, Lydia. We killed a guy who was helping us on the sly so that we could destabilize two countries (Libya and Mali) and make them training grounds for terrorists.

We're on the same side as al Qaeda in Syria because, well, because, that's why.

And in Egypt we helped overthrow an allied government in order to support the Muslim Brotherhood, which is more or less the father of modern towel-head extremism and butchery.

And now you want me to worry about a bunch of towel-headed sub-Saharan Africans in a country where they can't even definitively say who was kidnapped, from where, how, how many, or anything else that might be helpful.

Meanwhile, back in the USA, we have a government that fists grandmothers in the ass and fondles infants at airports because they (a) can't bring themselves to state that towel-heads are the big problem (as opposed to little old ladies and babies) and/or (b) because they have more interest in cowing their own people into submission than in confronting terrorists out to slaughter American citizens.

The terrorists won, and they're running the country.

Stay out of shit holes where we have no interest other than in helping the First Lady win her Twitter war.

Icepick said...

And no surprise that Ritmo, communist toady that he is, forgets to mention that in the 1980s we (a) had the same historic interests in Latin America that we had had for 200+ years and (b) were confronted by an enemy (the communists that Ritmo so loves) who had vowed to destroy us and were intent on doing so by swallowing one country after another.

Whereas in Nigeria, we need to help the First Lady (who wasn't proud of her country until she got to be queen) win a fucking Twitter war.

So TOTALLY the same thing....

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Yeah, too bad that worked.

This, of course, won't.


Oh. You mean, because they're black, right?

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

And no surprise that (Icepick), (rapist) toady that he is, forgets to mention that the U.S. has no moral interest in promoting rape.

But then, this is coming from Icepick's mouth, so it's entirely possible that he sees a personal interest in allowing rape.

But using his own stupid words against him is too easy. The real issue here is that fascist toads like him confuse moral and strategic interests. The same Reagan he defended had a lot of trouble doing much about apartheid, and the rape-lover Icepick naturally has trouble thinking there should be consequences for rape. So his refusal (not to approve the case, but) to at least see a moral issue here that a nation with moral credibility could have a stake in, just results from his natural comfort with rape and other atrocities.

Our involvement is contrary to his pro-rape interests.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Good night Icepick.

And if you feel misunderstood regarding the personal, er, "interests" you feel are at stake by saving kids from being raped, you might want to ask Meade for help. He's been stalking the other threads recently and offering plenty of advice on women. Give him a shout-out for me in case he drops by to lend you a hand.

Aridog said...

Phx ...a small but important point. Our State Department uses "weasel words" (highlighted) to make a distinction, that isn't one, vis a vis Al Qaeda and Boko Haram.

"U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday while Washington does not regard Boko Haram as being part of core al Qaeda, 'we have long had ... indications of some limited assistance to Boko Haram from al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb including funds and training.'" Link

This has been the habit of both State and DoD since 1959...a total failure to understand how asymmetrical operations are run and coordinated. Diverse elements linked by threads of cooperation that over time are strengthened as any divergent threads and elements are plain killed off. Presto...out of no-where comes a monolithic enemy? Bullshit.

I am not offering a solution, for two reasons: one, we'd never carry it out, and two, the solution would be brutal beyond what our electorate would tolerate. Think what Icepick asked...e.g., does it means wipe out the camp and every one in it?

Yes...yes it does. Nothing else would work to send a message to what might be left of Boko Haram that we do not value them what-so-ever and further their captives have no value either...which at present they presume to be of value...hence the abduction. Lt Gen.Victor Krulak said long ago that you don't defeat this type enemy with bullets, but with a better idea.(Paraphrased) So you first start by delivering the idea that Boko Haram is worthless...and go from there with the rest of Nigeria.

Easy for me to say...but we'll not do it ever again. WWII was the end of that policy for us. So far for Nigeria we, reportedly, have deployed an unarmed drone and technicians to run it.

Chickenlittle said...

I hope they're not left hanging...

Does that mean like the 30 odd operatives we had in Libya in the Counsulate & Annex....only 4 died...nothing to see here?

Aridog said...

Let me condense what I just said...along Trooper York's line of thinking. WTF are we doing in Chad & Nigeria anyway?

Yeah, I know, to protect the innocent, which I agree is a core value of civilization. My problem is that given Nigeria is a populated country why can't they form up a huge mob and go in to the jungle and wipe out Boko Haram?

I think I know that answer...and it does relate to religion and fear. I live in such a community of refugees right here.

We are there for nothing but the PR value for the Obama's. That is, if things go right. If they don't then let the coverup begin.

Aridog said...

Really, I think you are dead right on the motivation for this itsy bitsy intervention...and that is sad. "PR" with soldiers, even REMF's, never ends well.

I do not believe to this day that very many people understood why the prisoners in Hỏa Lò Prison cheered the B-52's over Hanoi. It is the reason I give McCain and formerly James Stockdale leeway, however different than my views ... they endured what I did not.

Trooper York said...

I certainly would object. I didn't think we should be involved in the Ukraine. He got that one right. That is a European problem. His incompetence worked out great for us that time.

I surely don't think we should get involved in North Korea either. That is Japan's problem. Korea has nukes that can reach California now. I would give the Japs a couple of Nukes so they could defend themselves and call it a day.

We need to stop being the worlds policeman. Enough already. We can't correct every injustice in this world. I repeat. It is not our problem.

I don't make an accusations. Just a question based on an assumption from what chickie is saying. If you say you did not sock puppet I will take you at your word. I don't follow the feed on email so I don't know who is doing what.

I do trust chickie absolutely so I hereby give you the modified side eye.

Not that I think sock puppets are such a bad thing.

So that is for your guys to fight out.

Also I have a lot of class.

All of it low.

Like I said, no worries. I know where I stand with you.

Trooper York said...

Now the modified side eye is looking at you askance.

Like this one from Lindsey Lohan.

We just have to give each other a break so we do not become labeled as "bad faith" commenters.

I think I did that at Father Fox's blog. But that was only because I was bashing the dirty protestants. Luckily we sorted it out.

Fifty hail Mary's and fity Our Fathers. He is a tough grader.

When you say fity Our Fathers you have to talk like Crack. Just sayn'

If you people aren't bitching about Althouse, you're just bitching. Funny as shit.

I will vouch for chickie, say he's generally a great guy and very trustworthy from everything I've ever known about him, but I do find that he occasionally comes to conclusions that are mind-bogglingly wrong. Not that I couldn't forgive him for concluding sock puppetry based on identical, deleted, consecutive comments. It makes sense deductively but if it didn't happen that way it didn't happen. Stranger things have been known to happen.
