Does Nigeria even have a functioning army now? Presumed Boko Haram rebels just invaded yet anotherNigeria village, machine-gunned residents, and captured 100 women and girls. There was no security in the town, no mobile communication, nothing to stop the attack. Gosh, Nigeria security might as well just have posted signs outside the town saying “Come get our girls.” The obvious question is – is the Nigeria military hopelessly compromised, corrupted, and infiltrated by Boko? Because they really don’t appear to be doing much of anything to protect the country.

Suspected Boko Haram gunmen kidnapped more than 100 women and children and killed 35 other people on Sunday during a raid on the remote northeast Nigerian village of Gumsuri, a security source and resident said on Thursday.

“They gathered the people, shot dead over 30 people and took away more than 100 women and children in two open-top trucks,” Chibok said.

Nigeria military had, as usual, no comment. At best they are worse than useless and appear to be strangely incompetent.
