God Bless these brave Algerians who attempted this rescue.
The Algerians government is secular and left leaning in its roots.
They fought the French for independence in the 1950’s and early 60’s.
Independent Algeria was a ‘haven’ for Black Panthers and other radical Americans around 1970.
Then came the Islamists threatening to win elections and take over the country.
The Algerian government cracked down and used tactics that included assasination squads.
The Algerian government has been fighting the Islamofascists for decades.
I knew they would deal with this situation decisively and they certainly have.
