I'm going to need some popcorn for this thread...

Watching this all live on my Xbox right now, it's very interesting what their motives are.

Did they plan on all the hostages, or was there a special someone there that they needed. Saw a picture of the Parking lot at the hotel and there was a car that cost over 500k while all the rest were 1k tops.

There is something deeper to this. If they wanted to make a point they would have just murdered everyone, but why hostages when they know the governments do not negotiate with them?

Mali radio station says hotel assault is over


A local Malian radio station which has been tweeting updates on the security operation at the Radisson Blu hotel in the capital, Bamako, is now saying that the assault of the hotel is over


Once again I would like to say, it was a great job done by the Malian security forces. Quite a few gave their lives for foreigners, foreigners who are citizens of our countries. I hope all nations involved today officially thanks them! They saved SO many lives today.

And for the 27 people who lost their lives, I hope your death will not be in vain.

Or, they were human with a conscience.
There is a big difference between the idea and actually doing it.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

a reply to: lamplighters

Being stupid or not does not make those lives lost any less valuable simply because they didn't kill more.

All but rooting for someone to kill more people because it is stupid to NOT do so is screaming that there is something wrong with that particular mind set.

Unless you want to go to those 27 victim's houses and discuss with their loved ones how stupid the terrorists were because they didn't kill everyone, it might be a good idea to quit pointing it out because you are making yourself look almost like a cheerleader who is down because there weren't more victims.

Give it a rest. 1 is too many. If it were a loved one of yours you would/should look at your last few comments and be appalled. I would hope so anyway.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Have you lost your freaking MIND????

Your post is pathologically twisted! You're actually "mad" over the fact the TERRORISTS failed to KILL MORE PEOPLE?????

Honestly, if you're serious you should seriously consider some mental health evaluation.

Something does not add up:


Interior Security Minister Colonel Salif Traore, speaking on state-run television, said The hostage situation at the hotel has ended, 76 people had been freed by security forces


So we had a confirmed 170 hostages, 76 freed, and 27 bodies. Where are the rest 67?

Security guards had confirmed that there were 10 terrorists. But reports say only 2 have been killed. Where are the rest? Or was it a mistake?

Situation not over!


'Fight now in upper floors of Mali hotel' Posted at 16:51 The Reuters news agency is quoting a Malian security ministry spokesman as saying that the country's special forces are still fighting gunmen in the upper floors of the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako.


Remember the bulk of the hostages were taken on the 7th floor. Looks like the fight is there now.

So if my mathematics is still good. We have around 8 terrorists with around 67 hostages. Looks like they had barricaded themseelves all this while.

Disable the elevators and send teams up every stairwell, floor by floor. That's the way to do it. Pretty soon the terrorist cowards will run out of floors to retreat to. I guess this when the terrorists will get to decide if their decision was the correct one.

I'm just hoping to see the headline "10 Dead Terrorists in Mali Siege".

Good, there is still time to make it look respectable amount


Which is 'respectable' in your view, more dead terrorists or more dead hostages?
