Nairobi

A dozen well armed fanatics in a gun free zone.
The Daily Mail has pictures of the carnage in Nairobi...lots of very disturbing pictures. This reminds me a lot of the Mumbai raid from a few years ago.

Two suicide bombers slaughtered the congregation at a Pakistani church Sunday.

Al-Quaeda has begun a new phase of attacks, less spectacular but much harder to stop.

As Cdr Salamander notes, it's just a matter of time before we're hit again. Read the whole thing, including the comments.

Remember that a few weeks ago the leader of AlQaeda called for small, scale,  and lone wolf attacks (he specifically praised the Boston Bombings).  Remember the Beltway snipers and what panic that caused. Remember Boston being shut completely down earlier this year.

I expect we're going to see rather a lot of this sort of thing in the future.
Snipers, Pipe bombs, and false threats to wear down the system.

Keep your concealed carry permits up to date and remember that places you are not allowed to carry are the places most likely to be attacked.

12 Years Ago

Via Cdr Salamander: This is the best overview I have ever seen of what it was like that day as the realization gradually set in that something was very wrong...then the awful certainty.



UPDATE: Subur Banbanshee has further thoughts on the various events that occurred on this date in history. Remember that 2001 and 2012 were exceptions to what has generally been an auspicious date for civilization.
