Gunmen open fire on sleeping college students in Nigeria

It seems 21 students at the College of Agriculture Gujba were gunned down by members of Boko Haram. BH, as I’m sure you’ll all be stunned to hear, is a jihadist organization devoted to imposing sharia. Their full name, translated into English, is Congregation and People of Tradition for Proselytism and Jihad; Boko Haram itself basically translates into “Western education is sinful” (“haram” is the Arabic word for “sin,” while “boko” is derived from the English word “book,” which has come to represent “western learning”). So, yeah. In Africa, a continent famous for its famines and plagues, a bunch of idiots gun down a  bunch of students trying to learn how to grow food.

    What is Nigeria doing to prevent this kind of thing in the future? What do any African countries do? It seems to me that they don’t care, or feel it is out of control. America will probably do the same thing.
