Making Nigeria safe for schoolgirls and oil companies

Quicker than you can say "bring back our girls" NATO has in effect used the supposed crisis to engineer an invisible coup in Nigeria.

While NATO boots from at least three member states are already on the ground to "help" in the search for the Chibok girls, President Hollande called an emergency meeting of regional leaders in Paris. The presidents of Nigeria, Niger, Benin, Cameroon, and Chad all agreed that Boko Haram was an al Qaeda front and would require "total war" to defeat.

That must have been music to the ears of the US and UK officials in the room. Western oil companies have been keen to have at northern Nigeria for decades. Alas, the security environment has not been conducive to the exploitation of these resources.

How convenient then, that a total war led by NATO will close off northern Nigeria to terrorists and open it for oil development!
