They're hitting soft tourist targets.

What superior assets are needed to attack a hotel or restaurant??

hatred of the West and the U.S. in particular due to our government’s complete destabilization of the Middle East.


US invested $60B in Iraq and $100B in Afghanistan for rebuilding and trainings of various kinds. This is a whopping amount. However, neutral analysis also says that this investment was mismanaged and lots of it wasted away.

True there is still high unemployment in these countries and lots of resources are still in the hands of few. Free market principles have not taken strong roots in the society as of yet.

There is a saying that "high jobs discrimination" in French society towards Arabs and Islamics has created very resentful sections. 70% of those in French jails are Islamics along with half of the unemployed. To this add some good brainwashing with heavy doses of disinformation documentaries and doctored statistics and you have willing fighters and bombers ready to go into the battlefield.

Even on the battlefield they are given a drug called Captagon which makes them fearless and rest is all gory evil war and its crimes.

Gasp! Thank you for mentioning captagon! I've never heard of it before and knowing about it now adds more clarity to the picture.

Which (coincidentally) looks to have had more than just ordinary everyday tourists kicking about in the place.

One such diplomat wasn't lucky enough to get out alive...

Hey guys didn't you read skeptic overlord thread? Even if this is once again Muslims killing innocent people it's Not all Muslims. You need to listen to Overlord and be more worried about hurting Muslims feelings and less concerned about them killing you. Internet message board owners and poor democrats know more than we could s we hope to.

Carry on Muslims. If you want to have sex with my wife I'm also a cuckold let me know.


Hey just start calling it 'muslim' violence.

That way we get to hold the entire muslim population accountable for the actions of a few.

Works so well for 'gun' violence.

Kill their families and/or nukes.


Nukes is taking it too far. Not worth even discussing.

Regarding families.........these suicidal jihadists have forsaken them all. There are parents in ME who raise their kids to become suicide bombers. Saw a documentary on youtube where a 8 year old was in a jihadist academy along with his 6 year old brother. father was fighting for Nusra somewhere else. The 8 year old wanted to be a fighter and 6 a suicide bomber. Camera got still on the face of this cute 6 yr. old for like 10 seconds when he said that.

Would any strange 6 year old even know what is a suicide bomber in reality? Who told this child about these gory evil things? most probably the parents and/or relatives.

brainwashing and misleading at its best. extremely sad, they are our fellow human beings after all!!



Unfortunatly for that 6 yrs old and 8 yr old they are destined to be meatsheilds. A entire new generation already lost and not worth worrying about except to prevent them from breeding a new generation of hate. Sorry i dont consider them Human beaings anymore when they are so programmed they would slit their own throats if you tried to hug one.

Breaking news? not to me it isn't.

Why do people still fly out to these places is beyond me. Risking your life and your children's lives for a cheap holiday, sad times we live in.
It is breaking news. What is wrong with you?

A couple things to consider, as you mentioned Boko Harem and between them and ISIS constitutes around 40% of terror attacks around the world with Boko Harem taking a slight lead.

That said, where they came from and who finances them is certainly open for debate.

Now what appears to be transpiring here is a real head scratcher. These aren't random citizens being targeted, we are looking at another potential Benghazi situation. And if we are responsible for their birth as well, it will be yet another example of the dog biting the hand that feeds. When will we learn.

So is there any update on the final outcome of this event?

I can't find anything which makes any sense about what the conclusion was. The MSM just seems to be rehashing the gore-porn for ratings.

How do they know the numbers? It seems rather specific for an ongoing situation.

BBC:

US special forces 'involved in Bamako operation'
Posted at 13:42
US special forces are assisting in the hostage rescue operation in Bamako, US news network CNN reports.


So, obviously the U.S. Special Forces had to already be on the ground in Mali or somewhere very close by?

Not something that is discussed in the MSM in my recent memory.


It seems like it was a SOF guy who was at the embassy and responded when they realised how many American nationals where in the hotel, there may have also been another operator in the country at the time.

Its not as if there was a whole Squadron of Delta force on stand by to respond.

Delta force and green berets are basically the same, but different. Delta force is the 1st group special forces. They are the best of the best. special forces/green berets cover Africa and yes they have a large number. They can be anywhere in Africa at a moments notice. They could've had Intel that something was going to happen and prepared for it by having operators on stanby at the ready.

It wasn't official in the beginning. But Russia had 12 people in same hotel. 6 of them died, another 6 rescued. All worked for an airline company.

Nobody has ever said this. Are you blatantly lying, or did you just assume this and believe it ?

I do believe that somewhere on the magnitude of 1/3 are engaged in terrorism or serious jihad, 1/3 quietly support it, and 1/3 are too terrified to speak or act. The #'s of course estimates, but I think these 3 groups basically make up the religion and its relationship to terror. There's nobody against terror that speaks. The media and various other apologists make a spectacle whenever they manufacture one or two supposed anti-terror guys. 1 or 2 out of 1.5 billion. And they're fake as hell.

They are no longer human beings, not in a rational, logical definition. They are now just instruments of death and killing, whether men, women, or children. They did this, not us.

And the blubbering, whining, crying saps who want to hug and smooch them (and drag their own kids into the group hug) while the animals are pressing the bomb vest detonator....make me laugh. A dark, dismissive laugh.

To quote the great American John Coffey - "He killed them with their love".
