Killing someone who rates up there with Hitler for brutality, is something "worthwhile" in my book. It just takes people with the stones an the ability to find an put a bullet in him, which he most definitely needs.If that **** was taking Aussie children you would be up in arms an screaming for the SAS to do something lol.
But because it's just kids half way round world, it doesn't rate as being important enough? Find him, put a gun to his head an execute him, problem solved, cheap as chips....
There's no guarantee that is cheap, easy, or would even do anything.
Haven't you learned anything from the US' attempts at African or Middle East involvement over the past few decades? Or their war on terror? Regime change doesn't do anything. To actually effect change, significant resources need to be spent to both change the regime, and build the country up.
This stuff is a sinkhole.
The appropriateness of using assassination tactics to intervene in another country's issues is also questionable.

If that hope you have was justified, the country wouldn't have systematic issues that have stretched back decades, because as soon as one nutbag retires, a paragon of virtue steps up after a long period of lawfulness... right?
A more realistic assessment is that even if his group falls apart, the power vacuum will just promote another, fully intact group. And they'd keep doing this stuff, because the precedent for doing it is set.
