While the world is focused on the US-Iranian Nuke Deal and the conflict swirling over the sands of the Middle East, Boko Haram remains all-too active in sub-Saharan Africa.
 
Many of us like-minded folks knew the lame hashtag "BringBackOurGirls" wouldn't entice the terrorists to change their ways, and release the girls they captured nearly a year ago.
 
Sadly, it appears that many of the girls have been/are being murdered as military forces advance against Boko Haram positions.
 
Nor is Boko Haram the only terrorist group unfazed by hashtags.
 
 
It doesn't a political cartoon like this...

(By the way:  Wikipedia considers Al-Shabaab a "militant group").
