    To people of good conscience that really care about their fellow human beings it is intolerable that the world cannot bring an end to ongoing atrocities of this organization Boko Haram operating in Nigeria. Boko Haram latest atrociticy was on New Years Eve going into a town in northeastern Nigeria, Malari, and kidnapping forty boys and men. What does the world know about this group, Boko Haram; it goes around kidnapping large numbers of girls and women using some of them as love slaves for their fighters and selling others into slavery, it goes around invading towns and villages in Nigeria killing its residents and taking its young men to turn into fighters. It has no respect for Nigerian or International authority evidenced by in recent days its attacking and overruning the multinational base at Baga in the northeastern state of Nigeria.


    The National Security Council of the United Nations is really failing the world in not devising a response to these atrocities that permanently eradicates this group from the world. The United Nations should have a mechanism or means to bring about the permanent elimination of these types of groups from the world. These groups should be designated by the Security Council as "intolerable threat to human life" groups triggering suspension of international law to eradicate and permitting the most extreme means used to eradicate.


    One important point needs to be delineated here which is that sometimes when the stakes are big enough it is permissible to intentionally use military force when the user knows innocent civilians will be killed in the process. An example would be during World War II when the allies carpet bombed from the air German military industrial complexes in which German civilians present nearby were knowingly and in fact were killed. The German government and its Nazi component at that time were morally bad enough to morally justify the killing of these innocent German civilians.


    The above point was made because what needs to take place is an outstandingly hard and aggressive military response needs to take place to quickly permanently eradicate this group Boko Haram from the world. What urgently and desperately needs to take place: satellite and intelligence information needs to be garnished to established as best as can be located the location of these Boko Haram fighting groups and B52 strikes with fifteen thousand pound bombs need to be conducted on these sites and if napalm air strikes need to be used to eliminate vegetation in areas where Boko Haram fighters are suspected to be so be it. If there is concentrations of Boko Haram fighters where special forces placed on the ground can eliminate them it should be done with the accompanying policy that no Boko Haram fighter should be allowed to live, the special forces fighters should not conduct the executions, a separate group connected to sovereign countries' intelligence organiztion should accompany their country's special forces on the ground and carry out the executions. This last condition is critical not only should all boko haram fighters be killed on the field so all efforts to permanently eradicate this group is fulfilled but the optimal deterrent effect against such groups is preserved so it will be less likely the world will see such groups in the future.


    So that there is no confusion this writer is advocating that the boko haram fighters families, their wives and children, and their innocent captives will unfortunately intentionally be in the target zone and will be killed in large numbers. This writer believes this is morally justified because the criminal activity of this group, Boko Haram, is so heinous and immoral and continuing that such extreme means are morally legitimate.


    Once the United Nations Security Council approves the use of such means on an intolerable criminal group and approves this to deal with Boko Haram. A coalition of countries should form and carry out this super needed task. The consent of the targeted country's government should be solicited for this response but it should not be deemed in any way necessary. The current targeted country's government, the Nigerian government, provides good reasons why. Boko Haram has been committing atrocities for over a year and the Nigerian government has been unable to stop it; the Nigerian government's forces are disgraceful Boko Haram fighters will attack an adjacent town to where Nigerian government forces are and kidnap large numbers of women transporting them in trucks,not helicoptors, and these Nigerian forces are told about it and don't do the obvious competent and responsible thing and chase after and catch up to them and fight to release the kidnapped girls. The theoretical alternative option of giving the Nigerian government military weapons to militarily defeat Boko Haram is too remote it is not a practical option, assuming the Nigerian government and Nigerian soldiers had the will to fight which is not at all clear, the Nigerian terrain makes it a jungle war which is a hard war to win and would make it a protracted war both factors creating a huge question on whether it would succeed!


    If the United Nations Security Council thinks that its role in the world is not violated by the continual atrocities of this group Boko Haram I would submit that three plus billion human beings on the planet think otherwise. They believe the Security Council should stop their dysfunction here and protect the world from this group of monsters!
