Boko Haram, Western Aid In Nigeria And the Iraq War - Opinion Article by Alexander Nekrassov

Boko Haram, Western Aid In Nigeria And the Iraq War - Opinion Article by Alexander Nekrassov | News From Stirring Trouble Internationally | Scoop.it

Former Kremlin advisor Alexander Nekrassov shares about Boko Haram and Western aid in Nigeria. Nigerian troubles have lessons to learn from Iraq conflict a few years ago.

Jim Bob's insight:

Included today is a 23 minute video with Wole Soyinka who shares about how Islam is not a problem. Alexander Nekrassov shares the Russian military analysts predictions about potential rise of violence in the area. 

 

Boko Haram is an organisation responsible for kidnapping lots of children from school a few months ago. You may remember the appeals made by Michelle Obama to return the children.

 

Boko Haram are trying to get attention for Western aid for oil and this is perhaps what is motivating the escalating violence.

 

Former Kremlin Alexander Nekrassov makes a good point about how violence escalates and suggests some solutions to prevent any further violence in the area. Read the article in full over on Al Jazeera.
