Not trying to be political about those fanatics taking over a mall and shooting up the place... but the first thing that popped into my head when I heard about it and those numbers was that if that had been tried in many US malls, we wouldn't be talking about 60-70 killed like sheep - we would be arguing about crazies in gun battles with armed shoppers, how crazies get guns, and how quick they were stopped... Just sayin - fanatics go after the unarmed and helpless.. you don't hear about them trying to take a company of armed Marines hostage

Wait until this happens here. There is a local Somalia connection and mark my works, there are more where that came from. If you think the local extreme mosque is not a breading ground for this type activity, you are separated from reality. Deport them now! Drain on resources, don't care to learn our culture and they import their hate for us. NO thanks! Leave!

"When I first went to Kenya in 2007, I was enamored by the raw energy surging through the country." Then why don't you go live there? "The aroma of meat sausage and samosas mixing with the smell of burning tires and petrol;" Oh well, now I understand the appeal. Nothing says "wonderful place to live" more than the smell of burning tires.
