'Boko Haram carry out deadliest massacre in human history'

Recommended Posts

MikeyBelic

 

 

HUNDREDS of bodies — too many to count — remain strewn in the bush in Nigeria from an Islamic extremist attack that Amnesty International suggested Friday is the “deadliest massacre” in the history of Boko Haram.

 

 

Mike Omeri, the government spokesman on the insurgency, said fighting continued Friday for Baga, a town on the border with Chad where insurgents seized a key military base on January 3 and attacked again on Wednesday.

“Security forces have responded rapidly, and have deployed significant military assets and conducted air strikes against militant targets,” Omeri said in a statement.

District head Baba Abba Hassan said most victims are children, women and elderly people who could not run fast enough when insurgents drove into Baga, firing rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles on town residents.

 

“The human carnage perpetrated by Boko Haram terrorists in Baga was enormous,” Muhammad Abba Gava, a spokesman for poorly armed civilians in a defence group that fights Boko Haram, told The Associated Press.

He said the civilian fighters gave up on trying to count all the bodies. “No one could attend to the corpses and even the seriously injured ones who may have died by now,” Gava said.

 

 

 

An Amnesty International statement said there are reports the town was razed and as many as 2,000 people killed.

 

 

The previous bloodiest day in the uprising involved soldiers gunning down unarmed detainees freed in a March 14, 2014, attack on Giwa military barracks in Maiduguri city. Amnesty said then that satellite imagery indicated more than 600 people were killed that day.

The 5-year insurgency killed more than 10,000 people last year alone, according to the Washington-based Council on Foreign Relations. More than a million people are displaced inside Nigeria and hundreds of thousands have fled across its borders into Chad, Cameroon and Nigeria.

Emergency workers said this week they are having a hard time coping with scores of children separated from their parents in the chaos of Boko Haram’s increasingly frequent and deadly attacks.

 

 

 

Just seven children have been reunited with parents in Yola, capital of Adamawa state, where about 140 others have no idea if their families are alive or dead, said Sa’ad Bello, the co-ordinator of five refugee camps in Yola.

He said he was optimistic that more reunions will come as residents return to towns that the military has retaken from extremists in recent weeks.

Suleiman Dauda, 12, said he ran into the bushes with neighbours when extremists attacked his village, Askira Uba, near Yola last year.

“I saw them kill my father, they slaughtered him like a ram. And up until now I don’t know where my mother is,” he told The Associated Press at Daware refugee camp in Yola.

The attacks are just getting worse and worse, both in the West and of course in other areas of the world like Nigeria, though they are common these death tolls are just shooting up..

Because nobody in the western world (in a position of power) really cares about anything else than the west. I thought this was obvious

Probably for similar reasons as to why people don't care or otherwise overlook the Lord's Resistance Army even though they make Boko Haram look like amateurs in comparison.

'Boko Haram carry out deadliest massacre in human history'

Not even f*cking close.

 

 

 

Also, the OP quoted the Amnesty International rep wrong, who suggested it was the “deadliest massacre” in the history of Boko Haram. Bit more specific than human history.

I'm not even entirely convinced that's true. The deadliest massacre taking place in a single location perhaps.

Me neither, but I think the idea of it being in a single location is what prompted the suggestion (and note: This was merely a suggestion). The topic title is hyperbole at best. And stupid, because now we are discussing semantics, and not the tragedy itself.

I quoted the article title and the article. I never at all stated I believed it was this was the deadliest massacre in all time. There's hardly anything on it going around for me to research facts properly. I made this as a topic to discuss the tragedy.

 

Also at Troub, the atrocities you listed were over a sustained period of time, not in one attack, I also agree with Svip with his belief they were referring to a single attack massacre in one location.

 

Again, the topic name was quoting the article title, if for some reason it troubles you more then the actual tragedy then change it.

 

@Svip I've added the article link.

You should have linked to the original article then, so we could see it was a hyperbole journalist and not you making that headline.

That was actually sivispacem, who made that suggestion. But only in the context of Boko Haram. I am sure there are plenty of examples of more people killed in one location.

See that's the problem with Article Titles they say one thing and mean something else while the reader is going to believe the article writer is a moron for claiming it was "The deadliest massacre in human history"

 

We're not trivializing what is going on in Africa with out replies but the writer is a moron.

 

They either never paid attention in History Class or they were trying to beat a deadline and just put the first title that popped into their head not realizing they are making a claim in the title which got the response it got from me and sivi.

Well, this topic's title definitely is misleading, but others seem to have noted that already as well, so...

 

...back to the topic itself, I feel it should be time for a revenge attack.

Nigeria needs better arms but they have a very sketchy past with abusing them.

Bring back our girls.

Kony 2012.

 

Forgotten by the time of the next news cycle. f*cking ADD nation we live in. Has it ever been any better? Well, I don't have that answer. What I do know is that we should act more, care more, and empathize more than we do already. The onus of that responsibility falls not on our elected representatives, but on our citizens. Our NGOs. Our power brokers with ties overseas.

 

It's just maddening. I wish the american people would care about something for more than a single news cycle. And I wish the worlds superpowers had their eyes less on the third worlds resources (us-china in a resource struggle in Africa for example) and more about using their existing resources to actually build up foreign nations when they can afford to. There are ways to invest in foreign infrastructure and education that will actually eventually help us long term. Foreign aid blank checks don't mean sh*t. Actually audit where the money goes with some oversight and it might be possible to healthily invest in promising but struggling nations in a responsible manner.

 

I'm not saying get too involved. Just use our knowledge and influence to help growing economies just enough so we don't have people running to the hills to join militants. Or working for a dollar an hour to mine metals for Foxconn.

Sorry for this,and condolences for people who lost their lives. I doesn't matter if its first or I don't know, twenty first largest massacre in history,its important to be stopped. Somebody should have to just destroy those maniacs before they continue bloodshed.
