Guns Of September

The guns of September are blasting away in Kenya where elements of the Somali al-Shabab have taken control of a shopping center in Nairobi named, Westgate. About 10 to 15 militants blasted their way into the mall and murdered over fifty people, wounded hundreds and have taken hostage others. The Somalians claim this attack is in retaliation for Kenya troops participating in an nvasion of their nation back in 2011. Latest figures are that at least 68 are dead and over 175 wounded. These militants inhabit a world in which murder and death are the words of religion. They murder at will and justify death as simply carrying out some aspect of their religion. In the end, troops will blast their way into the mall, dozens more will die and the horror that daily occurs in Somalia will go on and on and on.

There are no intelligent words to express about this tragedy. It is simply the other side of the coin of Death that daily infects the people of Syria. Death will not take a holiday.
