Somalia is an utterly failed state and all the Islamic rants will not bring about stability or civility...Just before my daughter went off to Kenya ...I mentioned to her that it is just a matter of time that the lunatics in Somalia would cross over to Kenya to do a major terrorist strike...I am glad that my prediction was belated and she managed to just miss this mess....I really don't want her going back to Kenya....it is the hub of Africa and there is a lot of positive potential there socially and economically....but not if those damned inbred Somali Muslim wack jobs interfere with the real progress. Islamic fanatics are going to attempt to drag Kenya back into the stone age...Kenya is the hope of Africa...and Islam is going to destroy that hope....The Somalian idiots should stick to being pirates and bandits and get this stupid idea of Islam and martyrdom out of their heads.........it is not going to work....God does not reward those that murder - others or themselves.

Isn't this where Obama was born? You would think he would help his people. I like Obama but I have not seen him do anything for his people.

Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

Hawaii a chain of islands in the Pacific Ocean and is a State of the United States of America.

Kenya is a African country by Somalia.

Pretty much opposite sides of the world.

LOL.

Not to laugh or make fun of those harmed or killed in Kenya in any way... but this was pretty funny. If nothing else it's pretty funny about the Chicagoans (who seem to not care who they hit at all.)

I'd imagine you'd need a change of underwear... if you survived.
3 Americans were the terrorists, but they traveled all the way to Kenya to kill non-Muslims.

I don't see this happening here anytime soon.

Where was your outrage ten weeks ago, when 70 Somalis were killed, blamed on Kenyan troops taking sides in what was supposed to be a peace-keeping mission?

"Somalia’s central government accuses Kenyan troops stationed in Kismayo of backing one militia against others and wants the African Union —under whose auspices the Kenyans are deployed — to send a neutral force there."

71 killed in Somalia fighting

Do you honestly expect outrage over one militia group fighting another (and the combatants counted as those 70)? If there is evidence Kenya is favoring one over the other the African Union should send them home. Even if its true it doesn't excuse this heinous act of violence against civilians from many different countries at that mall that have nothing to do with the Somali conflict. Just like when over 200 Kenyans were killed by Muslim terrorists in the bombing of the US embassy in Nairobi in the late 90s.

For anybody interested, here is a user-friendly live streaming radio service from Nairobi, which at times has news about the mall shootings, including call-in talk shows.
