BBC News - US deploys planes in search for Nigerian girls

 It is about time that the government of Nigeria and President Goodluck Jonathan  is finally accepting help from the other nations, it is sad to think if the #bringbackourgirls social media outcry hadn't made international attention I believe nothing would have been done.



My fear here is now that Nigeria will go ahead and negotiate with these terrorists and this will be a continuing situation, if they exchange prisoners for these girls they will do it over and over. However I also fear that because it has been shown in the past that  Boko Haram has no concern for human life, that if a rescue mission is attempted these young girls, who's only crime is trying to make a better life for themselves will be murdered, I am afraid that this may be a now win situation for the government of Nigeria and the young girls and their families.



Either way if they exchange prisoners or these young girls are killed in a rescue attempt Boko Haram is going to be made stronger in Nigeria and surrounding nations because of the fear factor, something should have been done right away and if I was a Nigerian citizen I would be trying to force President Goodluck Jonathan out, him and others in their government are corrupt anyways, sharing their oil wealth among each other and living most of Nigeria's citizens living in fear and poverty.
