#1 from the article, "For Boko Haram is not the Nigerian Taliban, as another early media nickname deemed it..."

#2 Western governments could be instrumental in pressuring on the Nigerian government to stop extrajudicial killings and bar corrupt officials within its ranks, but the lack of a political will makes serious efforts unlikely.

Given the attitudes towards the West, it is not likely such efforts would make much difference.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
