African nations in coalition with the U.S. against Boko Haram.

A million and a half children, along with their mothers, have been displaced by Boko Haram in Cameroon, Nigeria, and neighboring African states. And Boko Haram is still holding the 250 plus Chibok, Nigeria schoolgirls.

But Boko Haram, the Islamist, ISIS-allied rebel group, now has big worries. In addition to being pushed out of their northeast Nigerian jungle hideouts by Nigerian government and Cameroonian troops recently, they are now facing a regional multinational task force made up of soldiers from Cameroon, Chad, Benin, Niger and Nigeria.

In addition, The New York Times reports (at the link below) that President Obama has already sent 90 of an eventual 300 armed U.S. troops to Cameroon to offer non-combat support, including unarmed Predator drones to the multinational African force.
