Nigeria on edge as Islamist group extends campaign of violence

In the recent midst of a gain in the realm of terrorism the scare in Nigeria has dramatically risen. The Nigerian president, Goodluck Johnathan, once had an attitude of wanting to try and come up with a solution to the needs of the religious head-strong terrorist. Boko Haram only sent back a voice message that declared the death of every region of person, “We’re killing police officers, we're killing soldiers and other government people who are fighting Allah; and Christians who are killing Muslims and talking badly about our Islamic religion." The degree to which all of the acts are affecting are adding up quickly. In just the last month Haram carried out numerous bombings and shooting mainly across northern Nigeria; totaling hundreds in casualties and most are civilians. In just one day there were 180 people killed.
This should start to alert anyone because within the area lies the Libyan revolts and Al Qaeda, and they both get attention. Haram is obtaining his militia through the abundance of ammunition and artillery that Libya consumed when they were revolting the government. Al Qaeda was thrown into the mix with when members were caught with contact information about the group. They are seeking religious persecution on all Christians. We should all be alarmed due to the fact attacks like these usually escalade, and with the notions that are being brought forth by Haram it seems far from slowing down. The religious turmoil has no beginning date, and seems to have no near future end date, which troubles anyone who believes that history does repeat itself.
