I just watched HBO commentary on the one year anniversary of the West Gate mall attack, conducted by 4 men ages 19-23, belonging to the 'Al-Shabaab' Al Qaeda group in Somali Africa.
But what stood out to me was the...
1. Cowardly behavior of the Kenyan uniformed police force and swat team
They just stood outside for hours as the gun men freely roamed the mall shooting people.
2. The Bravery of about 6 plain clothed Kenyan police officers who took action on their own and went inside mall to confront terrorists and free hostages. Sadly one of these plain clothed police officers was later shot by incompetent uniformed Nigerian Army personal, who when they finally entered mall, started indiscriminately shooting at anyone who moved, while the 4 Al-Shabaab members were upstairs relaxing in storage room.
3. Four gunmen were able to hold off Kenyan security forces for 3 days!!
Wow, this really shows how much more focused and passionate these Islamic group members are verses the passiveness of the Government trained troops they're often up against.
4. Five Kenyan Army members were killed as they tried to clear out mall, but not one Al-Shabaab member was injured by the Army.
The Al-Shabaab members finally were taken out when Army dropped gigantic bomb on roof of complex and the terrorists were killed instantly by blast of bomb, but not by security forces.
5. I was also dismayed by the coward behavior of all the civilian men in the mall, they all fled, ducked and ran just like the women did.
None of the men thought about organizing or fighting back, instead they all ducked under tables, hid in closets, ran, as one would expect the women and kids to.
The men inside the mall took no action to protect anyone, when in reality if the men had rushed the gunmen, using tables, anything as shields, they could of over taken the gunmen, and saved the lives of many, but instead the men in the mall all laid on the ground, where they were shot anyways.
I just saw a lot of cowardly behavior from the civilian men to the Kenyans Police force and Army, which just stood outside the Mall even as massicoure was occurring.
It just shows the difference between passion and conviction vs generic pop culture types.
4 gunmen able to siege mall in Kenya for 3 whole days, and Army to cowardly to enter, and when Army did enter, shot plain clothed officers...very incompetent.
And if massive bomb wasn't dropped from Airplane, who knows, maybe siege would still be going on.

I heard today on the Bill Bennet show a caller suggest that the 'nature of Islam was evil'.
Bill Bennet being an ineffective bias host had no response.
But if I were host of that show I would of responded.
'It's not 'Islam or the Koran that's 'Evil', rather the nature of man is, at it's core'
It's the nature of man that is corrupt, not the bible or Koran, or any other book.
These books, words, are lifeless until a human re interpits them based on their own individual nature.
Example, like the Koran, the bible is filled with passages in old testament where 'God' orders Israel to commit violence against those nations that oppose it.
Violence so gross I choose not to repeat it on here.
Yet rarely in this day and age do you see Christian carrying out old testament edicts from 'God'.
I'm sure some want to, but many simply live in nations where 'Government' reigns supreme and has other ways of working out differences.
(kind of a bad example)
But anyways, to be fair, I don't think the Koran or Bible are sources of good or evil within themselves, rather it's the individual or individuals reading them that act out on their own individual natures, and simply use either book or doctorine to rationalize that behavior, or justify it.

Get sick of hearing people in media refer or ask if 'Islam is a violent religion'.
That's like saying that 'Cars are violent'...
Cars are like religion in that it depends on the person inside of it that determines how car is handled.
Islam may appeal to 'violent' types, aggressive types, but the religion itself isn't violent, to say so takes away responsibility for individual behavior and choices.
In other words if Islam wasn't around, I'm sure the people acting out now, would find other reasons or causes to do so under.
It's in mans nature to be violent and destructive, regardless of what 'cause' it falls under.
I mean what makes American citizens so violent?, with all the incarcerations and jails (more than any other nation on Earth)...obviously it's not Islam.
And although acts of violence in America (criminals) are usually random and un organized, none the less collectively there's way more day to day street crime and violence in America than just about anywhere else, and that's a shocker when so many people have access to sanitized living, Government help, hospitals, food, housing, yet still act out violence.
Just watch the TV show 'Cops'...and tell me what makes these people act so violent in the streets of America...does freedom cause this behavior?
One can no more blame 'Freedom' on American population violence, than one can blame 'Islam' on violent people.

All anyone with a brain has to do is look at the placement of the shadows around the mens neck.. Obviously the photo of the men were taken at different times, with either the Sun or other lighting being in a different place in sky or room.
Can't believe no one else has noticed this, well I have, won't get credit though, oh well I'm use to not getting credit, instead you'll hear it in the news sometime in the future...some so called 'expert' will suggest photo may be fake..
But remember you heard it here first!!
Now for some conspiracy questions
1. Why would all major networks air this photo, and have us to believe it's real?
2. Why wouldn't Governments, U.S. and Japan, not tell public that hostage photo was photo shopped together?
I mean what's really going on here?
Are we all being duped?
Is all of this some kind of global theatrical performance being orchestrated by dark world powers?

Also, look at how intensely sun is hitting the two Japanese citizens (supposedly)...yet Jihadist almost seems to be in the shade, or standing outside while very little sun light...look at his hand, barely lit up by sun.
This is a rigged photo...why didn't they want us to know it was rigged?
What is going one here?

Fox News is very dense when it comes to middle East affairs
When you have citizens there, experts who are middle Eastern and not news correspondence, telling you that ISIS and other groups aren't all about Islam, but rather regional power grabs then I tend to give them more credibility...
Fox News paints a very basic rhetorical view of the middle East, a Kindergarden view, and are obsessed with President not referring to gun totting militia as 'Radical Islam'.
If one is capable of thinking beyond Fox News's BS and rhetoric, it's not hard to see that it really isn't about Islam. Those fighting aren't really doing so for religion, but rather territory, conquest and power.
Islam may be a basic motivator by default, but beyond that it really has very little to do with Islam, and more to do with power hungry younger militants who seek conquest.
When I see black cladded gunmen toting guns in desert, the last thing I think of is Islam.
Inland pirates come to mind first.
And this Fox News insistence that it be labeled radical Islam is absurd (but only to thinking people).
But then again Fox correspondence never actually talk, interview people who actually live in area, instead they get news and information from themselves.
'It's radical Islam, yep that's what it is, it must be radical Islam cause Hannity says it is'
If that's all Fox thinks it is, they'll never get to the source of the scourge.
And fail to realize the geo political make up of area.
And as such will continue to be a second rate political tabloid shock jock fake news show.

2. Rulership, the chance to actually have a say in your Government
3. A sense of being slighted, cheated by the world, and now's 'your' chance to seek revenge.
4. Un told riches, and a chance to be elevated to upper class society once conquest complete.
5. Travel, adventure 'Hey, this is fun'
Now what do anti ISIS fighters have to look forward to
1. Return to dominant culture when fight is over, return to lower caste or citizen class.
2. Return to earning minimum wage at meat market serving or selling items to rich tourists.
3. Once fight is over, have no say, no voice in local Government, rulership, 'Please kindly hand over your weapons and go back to subservient role'.
4. Not having your voice or opinion heard on any matters at all.
What I'm saying here is often times ISIS fighters have a lot more to fight for than those units put together to fight them.
And is why often even though ISIS fighters aren't as 'State' organized, fight with more fierosity than those generic units assembled to fight them.
ISIS's biggest mistake is that they have to learn to stand for more than just pure destruction, mayhem and 'evil'.
They can't just continue to kill people for the recreation of it, most revelutions do start off violent, but eventually evolve into a more political force or ideology, which eventually allows them to Govern those they conquer.
But ISIS just seems to be very 1 dimensional so far, brutality will only get you so far, eventually must change tactics or even those who first supported you will turn on you.
No one wants to live in fear their whole life, as people age they want stability, a sense of normality for their family, friends, and business.
If ISIS doesn't evolve, they will come and go as quick as the Nazis did, and just be a blip in history.

People who think Islamic militants attack American interests just for the fun of it are dense.
And if pressed for facts, would be proven so.
Not saying I agree with violence, but to just say they have, either now, or in the past, are hostile towards America ' just because' is to purposely burry ones head in the sand, and or be very un informed on world affairs.
It's OK to be patriotic, but to lie to self and pretend people or nations or groups are mad at 'you' or 'your government' just cause 'of who we are' is totally ignorant.
No one ever gets mad at another unless first that other does something to them.
And that 'something', is what many don't want to know about.
