According to Obama the War on Terror is over -- too bad the terrorists don't know it.

And it's just "pure coincidence" of course that the terrorists are perpetrating their attacks in the name of Islam... (/sarc)

They might as well charge in as Islamic hostage is the preliminary to being a headless corpse. The faster they move the more hostages they may save.

Americans were also injured in the attack, said Deputy State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf.

I can only assume all appropriate stand-down orders have been issued.

‘Al-Shabab claimed its fighters had killed 100 people, but the group’s claims are frequently exaggerated.

“We are treating this as a terrorist attack,” Benson Kibue, a police chief said. “

Al Qaeda-linked Somali militant group claims responsibility for deadly Kenya mall attack

Witnesses say the gunmen asked victims they had cornered if they were Muslim: If the answer was yes, several witnesses said, those people were free to go. The non-Muslims were not.

I guess when the attackers shouted for all Muslims to get away; they were doing it as a false-flag operation?

This is an important attack, not just for the dead and their grieving families, because it shows the Islamist clearly for what they are. Put this together with the innumerable murders in Christian churches and the villages that surround them and you see an all out and remorseless attack on civilization itself. Boko Haram and it’s rejection of anything tainted by non Islamic influence speaks for all believers. If the Islamists tell the truth, why won’t the MSM in America report it? Rhetorical question.

A bunch of extremists, I'm sure. A splinter group.

Note that splinter starts with the same letter as sarcasm.

-— at least 39 dead and 150 wounded, -—

In this age of Islamic terrorism, concealed carry must be allowed. This won’t stop bombings, but it would minimize these kinds of attacks.

A war, by definition, requires two sides. In attacks like this you have the guys with guns. And victims.

We stopped fighting back years ago. We are now in retreat. In a year, we will have effectively surrendered—or at least declared out neutrality.

I am so utterly, totally sick of Muslims. The Christians of Kenya are good people - I’ve met both Catholics and Anglicans from there - and they are peaceful, smart and decent. But that’s exactly what Islam hates.

Maybe some smart lawyer can sue Islam like the SPLC sued the white power folks. Sue them for preaching hate and advocating murder. A guaranteed instant riches if there is a win!
