    As I mentioned many times before the US policies around the world lead to this types disaster; when are we going to learn? Most of the terror groups are expanding rapidly; our drones only increases their membership. This happening should again be a reminder that regardless of that we killed Osama Bin Laden, that instead of thinking that we killed the head of a terrorist group, we created even more terrorists by doing so. The weird thing is that we always stand ready with our assault riffles, even at schools to protect us. Indeed we are a society of scared little weasels. This mentality we sell around the world as well; buy our guns, we take your resources and shut up otherwise we sent some drones or other toys.

    As long as our goverment can not even run our own country; take care of the poor or create decent work, or bankrupt us because of all the wartoys and backpocket donations from our wealthy billionairs to them, then why meddle all over the world in the same fashion?.
    So what did we learn from this disaster, just about as much as from 9/11 I guess.

    It was being reported by several different news Agencies that the attackers were asking for those who were of the Muslim Faith would be able to leave safely , that is very chilling ,and just yesterday it was being reported that a Christian Church was bombed during services and close to 60 people were killed, including children, I don't know what this Nation can do to help those other countries that are being victimized by these terrorist's because there are so many countries over there that need some type of assistance because of this of type warfare, the UN is completely useless, because so many of the member nations are dependent on the Middle East for their energy needs ,that they remain paralyzed to act for fear of the loss in their energy requirements. I am sure that if the Jewish Nation of Israel or the entire Christian Nations were to wage war on Muslim civilians in the same manner, there would be a huge outcry for justice from those that are so silent now.

    Last I saw was 68 reported dead, and no Americans among them. They seem to have targeted everyone except Muslims. Maybe American or other western targets were too well defended. Attack a shopping mall, or a fortified embassy? Easy decision.

    America can not solve all the worlds problems, though sometimes it seems like we try. In a case like this we can sometimes assist the Kenyan government, for example, IF they ask and I heard that they have asked. Many times when the US tries to intervene we make things worse instead of better.

    Good intentions pave the road to hell, but don't always produce positive results.

    Right about the UN, in an emergency where help is needed immediately or lives would surely be lost, the UN would schedule an emergency meeting to begin sometime next week. Then probably postpone it.

    Just on the news: Obama has a new exuse; He calls everything what happens lately: The "new" norm". Wow thus in Kenya where 50 plus Americans have become members of a terrorist group "a new norm",where nutheads here shoot whenever they want to shoot, Navy yard or somewhere else; interviews with La Pierre who defends having assault riffles; the new norm. The government debt ceiling and borrowing, the new norm etc. etc. I could go on and on forever about "new norms"" Hallejuja!!!
