. Seriously, though, why are we all merely condemning these terrorists? We don't even know why they are doing this. I hate it when people fail to analyze situations thoroughly and simply blame guilty parties.

I'm sorry, but this thing is reading like a damned James Bond plot. People ESCAPING from the hospital THEY were holding hostage in a POLICE VAN? Then driving it down the road shooting people randomly, presumably on their way to their next objective? Police Headquarters under siege? HAND GRENADES?!!! This is military all the way! Nigerian "terrorist" gang, my ass.
