Barbarians at the Gate

CNN is doing the best job covering the Al Qaeda attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, where nearly 70 people have been massacred, 175 injured, and 30 hostages held.  Israel is helping Kenya to end the siege.  "Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta told reporters Sunday afternoon the Kenyan people had showed resiliency as a nation and would triumph against the attackers. The tragedy was also personal for Kenyatta; one of his nephews and his fiancee were among the dead. 'They shall not get away with their despicable, beastly acts. Like the cowardly perpetrators now cornered in the building, we will punish the masterminds swiftly and indeed very painfully,' Kenyatta said." Let's hope so. If this was a dry run, you wonder how long it will be before they brutally attack a mall here on a similar scale.  You can read more about the tactics of these savages over at Jihad Watch.
