    My heart goes out to all those who are affected by this situation. This is terrible. 68 people dead. More then 150 injured.

    Anyhow, moving on.

    The group claiming responsibility are al-Shabaab, a group that counts a high number of western converts looking for a fight.

    Kenyan troops are still fighting.

    Real-life is always full of tragedy and chaos at every unexpected turn. Especially with all the constant shit going on in Africa and the whole world for that matter.

    First, the Somali pirates, then Idi Amin, and the Nigerians with their "Christians vs Islamic" thing, then Joseph Kony, and this.

    Gee... when will humanity learn to improve for once to stop abusing the living fuck out of religion or anything sacred for mere ulterior motives? But then again that's terrorists and fundamentalists for you and nothing else or more.

    That'd be the guys we armed and trained to take down Gaddafi

    There's a rumour that one of the people involved is one of the London 2005 bomber's wife.

    Yeah, Christians say the same thing, and yet...

    Hell, most religions do, and yet, followers still don't practice what they preach.

    I'm hearing the president claims that it is over.

    When's the last time you heard a guy yell "For Christ!" and mow people down with an AK?

    The last time a doctor who performs abortions got killed? Are we really going to act like religion had nothing to do with that?

    Hell, if we really want to go there, I remember a certain president calling a recent war a "holy war".

    And then historically... Oh boy, it becomes a list.

    I forget, what was Anders Breivik's position on the whole God thing?

    Are you really going to act like you're not being defensive about one religion at the expense of another?

    The last couple presidents have muttered all kinds of ridiculous bullshit. I file it away under "Whuddevah."

    Isn't it interesting how when brown-skinned Muslims kill people it's because of their religion, but when white-skinned Christians do it it's because of mental illness or something, and certainly nothing to do with their ethnicity and/or skin colour?
