house Bill H. Res. 53

Should Congress Condemn the January 2015 Boko Haram Attacks in Baga, Nigeria?

Argument in favor

The Boko Haram attacks in January (and before) are horrible atrocities, and major violations of human rights. It’s important for people in the U.S. and across the globe to know that members of Congress cannot stand for this kind of activity.

Congress should condemn every act of terrorism, beginning with the Cultural Terrorism afoot in the U.S.

The Muslims have a doctrine that teaches them to lie to all nonbelievers and to cheat them and do anything that can hurt them and it is not sin. If a nonbeliever refuses to convert their doctrine teachers them to force us to convert, pay a tax, or be put to death. They believe that it is their job to kill all Jewish people and they are killing Christians just for their belief. And my opinion, this negates their rights and we should shun them completely. All Americans should read the Koran and the Hadith. Sun Tzu said, "Know your enemy as well as you know yourself and you will defeat him." It is time for us to recognize our enemy, call him out and defeat him. It is time for us to regain our pride in being American!

Argument opposed

Oh, yeah, having a bunch of lawmakers in suits in a white marble building poo-pooing their behavior is totally going to stop AK-toting extremists halfway around the world, from kidnapping and murdering even more people. Totally.

Just no point. I don't blame you for voting yes, I just don't think there's a point to it.

People like this only respond when they have a fully loaded assault rifle pointed in their face.

It's horrific, yes but why do we need to waste valuable time when there are so many more pertinent things that need down. Half the time I feel this kind of thing is all Congress does. It's a 'feel good' resolution that waste time for other things like budgets and figuring out what to do about the miserable state of health care.

    This is really the job of POTUS to condemn the attacks. But then, our socialist president would never speak ill of a Muslin.

    If you want it to stop then act not pass hot air. Air & words mean nothing in this situation. It will only stop with a decisive and ruthless attack on the criminals that leaves a message to the world: You pull shit like this we will stalk you to the ends of the Earth to torture you to death in the most painful and slowest way possible. We will violate your bodies and your soul to the point where your God will have no choice but to send you to Hell.

    They will not respond to talk...only brute force. We do not want to fight all these people, but we must, because no other country has the might of the U.S. Perhaps it is time to re-introduce the draft and make military service mandatory to young men and women.

    By not condeming the attack, we as a country (and even as a moral body of humans) are guilty of omission. Condeming these attacks, while clearly not the only sanction against the people

    Don't waste your time and the tax payer dime with meaningless games. No self respecting terrorist is going to give two $h!t$ about what we are offended about. Radical Islam only respects three things: their Koran, their prophet and superior firepower. I'll let you all decide which of these we should give them.

    We're America. We hunt terrorists. That's just one of those things that we're the best at, and that our top-tier fighting men love to do. Send 300 SEALs and Group guys down there and CLEAN IT UP IN ONE DAY.

    Why not? A horrible act by horrible people, U.S. citizens need to be aware of the horrible atrocities Boko Haram have committed.
