I suppose those that say anything about this being an Islamic terrorist attack will be yelled at by the political left.

going to be hard to do that though, as an Islamic terrorist group is taking credit for it & seemingly the bastards only targeted non muslims.....

More madness: The attacks are mostly orchestrated by Sunni extremist militant groups, although some have also been claimed by the Pakistani Taliban.

Yes. As I said before, just after 911 actually. The return of the crusades. Different format, same ****. The "war on terror" is a moronic appellation for it as terror is merely a tactic used by the enemy - radial Islamists - You might as well use as stupid a term as "the war on recconnissance" or the "war on artillery" etc.

I suspect the Kenyans may be less restrained in their response than others might be.

Why do you suppose? I haven't heard any disagreement that this event was anything else, have you? Have there been suggestions that this was a botched robbery? Disagreement about a gift return without a receipt?

no, I am not. Just my predictive analysis. Esp poigniant since 3 of the terrorists involved are from Minneapolis. MOA visit, anyone?

I don't go to malls, either, but millions of Americans do.

Were they FROM Minneapolis i.e. born there, or just happened to live there at some point in the last 10 years? I think the Minneapolis claim came from the gunmen themselves, which immediately makes it suspect.

They have every reason to wave their little schweens around and say "look, we've recruited Americans... even if said 'Americans' were in Minneapolis on a tourist visa in 1998."

Make sure the Kenyans repatriate their bodies wrapped in pigskins, then.

Interestingly, a British woman who was married to one of the 7/7 bombers also seems to be involved:

Why would anyone suppose that given the history here in OD? Are you a Master of the obvious?

These criminals have been pretty clear about who they are. The less obvious reasons is why they are doing this.

The BBC had a story on this morning that suggested it was about money. It turns out the Kenyans ran them out of a place they had been selling charcoal for millions and millions dollars a year and they are not happy about it. So they are sending a message to Kenya that Kenya should not mess with their money.

Apparently the charcoal 'business' was mostly a front for donations from other Arab states who don't wish to be seen as directly funding terror. Sort of like the USSR when it was paying Cuba five times the going rate for sugar. Simply a business deal; not a support of a puppet. (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

Anyway... It's just a theory, but it does give some purpose to the entire affair.

Yeah- don't kick us out of our money tree otherwise we will kill everyone in a mall except those that are Muslim. Not religious terrorist at all.
