Some Thoughts on the Religion of Peas
It's almost like there's a pattern to all this violence. Almost:
Islamist insurgents have killed at least 31 people in a village in northeast Nigeria, a lawmaker said on Monday, taking the death toll from three days of attacks to 116 as soldiers struggle to contain raging violence.I'm trying to figure out the common thread here:
Insurgents have killed more than 400 people in just over a month, security sources say, making it one of the deadliest periods in the Islamist sect Boko Haram's insurgency, which began with an uprising in Borno state in 2009.
Evidence at the crime scene showed that the Kunming Railway Station terrorist attack was orchestrated by Xinjiang separatist forces, the municipal government said Sunday.Okay, I think I have it now:
At least 29 innocent people died, and more than 130 were injured in the attack as of 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, the local authorities said.
A BLOODY attack on a crowded District Court complex in Islamabad has left 11 people dead and about 30 others wounded, shattering hopes of an imminent negotiated end to violence gripping the country.Nope, lost it. These are all just random acts of violence. Nothing to see here folks, move along.
In a rare assault on the Pakistani capital, between four and six gunmen stormed the building in the city centre just before 9am yesterday, opening fire on court workers and visitors and lobbing grenades into lawyers’ chambers and judges’ offices before two of the attackers detonated suicide bombs inside the central court building.
