    Pretty damn scary when this is happening in your country. The Islamist are getting stronger using guerilla warfare tactics and killing people in hundreds. I pray they don't start attacking southern cities.

    Perhaps if the government was not so corrupt there would not be such a strong insurgency. These things don't start for no reason

    That too, I don't really think more troops is going to be that helpful. Insurgencies are rarely ever defeated by force of arms.
