Current Event Cat of the Day: Kenyan Mall Siege

Current Event Cat - Kenyan Mall Seige

The Kenyan mall siege is now on day three, after gunmen from Al-Shabab, Somalia’s al Qaeda affiliate, stormed the shopping centre on Saturday afternoon, killing 68, wounding 175 and taking a bunch more hostage.

Fast forward to Monday and blasts can still be heard from inside the Kenyan mall where the al Qaeda–linked terrorists still hold a number of hostages. Authorities believe that 10 to 15 gunman are still in the mall holding about 30 hostages. The Kenyan military has been doing its best to isolate the gunmen in the mall and has launched an all-out assault on the remaining militants.

Al-Shabab, who is weirdly active on Twitter, says it carried out the attack in response to Kenyan military operations in Somalia, where they are trying to impose a hardcore Islamic state. The terrorist group has repeatedly threatened attacks on Kenyan soil if Nairobi did not pull its troops out of Somalia.

Somali al-Shabab militants threatened to kill the hostages they are holding as Kenyan troops move to end their siege – no negotiations! The Kenyan Defence Forces said that three terrorists had already been killed and that the chances of any attackers “sneaking and escaping” were slim.  But they should probably hurry that up with that all-out assault…

Essentially it will turn out as a suicide mission for the gunmen. But while everyone is sitting around mourning this tragedy, one Idaho company is taking things into their own hands. Actually, more like putting things into their own guns…

An Idaho ammunition maker has introduced pork into their bullets as a deterrent against Islamist terrorists who are forbidden by religion to eat pig.

“With Jihawg Ammo, you don’t just kill an Islamist terrorist, you also send him to hell,” the company wrote in a press release. “That should give would-be martyrs something to think about before they launch an attack. If it ever becomes necessary to defend yourself and those around you, our ammo works on two levels.”

Yes, Jihawg Ammo claims that their $20-per-box “Pig in the Paint” bullets are the solution to world peace: the company’s website proclaims, “Peace through Pork!”

Problem solved. No further questions. Now if only they sold those bullets at the Kenyan mall…
