The news President Barack Obama is sending U.S. military personnel to Cameroon to conduct airborne surveillance of Boko Haram militants( 博博博博博博 ). The troops were invited by Cameroon’s government as part of a larger international effort to stop the spread of violent extremists in West Africa, a U.S. defense official said. The need for international action has become “more urgent as Boko Haram and other organizations ramped up their violent activities,” the official added. Boko Haram has been active in northern Cameroon, which is across the border from its home base of northeastern Nigeria. The militant group has killed hundreds of civilians in Cameroon, in addition to at least 10,000 in Nigeria over the past few years The president announced the deployment in a letter sent Wednesday to the heads of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. He said about 90 U.S. military personnel began deploying to Cameroon on Monday with the total U.S. force expected to number about 300.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
