The U.S. military says it has killed eight members of the al-Shabab extremist group with an airstrike south of Somalia’s capital.
The U.S. Africa Command statement says the airstrike occurred on Saturday near Gandarshe, a coastal community. The statement says no civilians were involved.
The U.S. military has carried out at least 40 airstrikes this year against the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab, Africa’s most active Islamic extremist group. It controls parts of rural southern and central Somalia and continues to stage deadly attacks in the capital, Mogadishu, and other cities.

1440th 1439th Annual Islam Hates Baby Jesus Festivities Begin in France (Update: Baby Jesus' Followers Kill Terrorist!)
Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) has released a statement denying that its members were killed in a Nov. 29 airstrike. The statement was disseminated via social media in both Arabic and English.
Not only did al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb's (#AQIM) media arm produce a French transcript of Wadoud's speech, it also provided an English-language translation. They are pushing for the widest audience. pic.twitter.com/HU0d6oRjR0
“We in [Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb] categorically deny any organizational link to those innocent Muslims targeted in Uwaynat in southwest Libya, asking Allah to cover them with His mercy and accept them among the martyrs,” the statement reads.
“We confirm what media reports said according to notables in the area, that those who were targeted were a group of Tuareg youth with no link to the organization,
The gunman suspected of killing three people and injuring 13 near Strasbourg’s Christmas Market served several terms in prison for armed robbery and is believed to have been radicalised in prison.
29-year-old Chérif Chekatt has been on France’s “S” file terrorist watch list since 2015, and his profile matches that of self-styled “jihadists” who have carried out other attacks in France.
Born in Strasbourg, he is a French citizen and has some 27 convictions in France, Germany and Switzerland to his name, according to Strasbourg's public prosecutor Rémy Heitz. In 2016, he was released from prison in Germany and, before the attack on Tuesday night, was wanted in connection with an attempted murder and an armed robbery, according to a source close to the investigation.
On Tuesday morning, police raided Mr Chekatt's home and found grenades, a .22 firearm and two hunting knives, but failed to capture him. Five associates were, however, detained.
Update 12/13/2018: The French Police approached the suspect, he opened fire, they killed him.

He was a known enemy of the state.
All Muslims qualify for that title.
So theyve been sleepwalking through their barbarity ?
No its part of a awakening by people against leftists and other tyrants (like the islamist wannabe in more of the world).
But then these things are also magnets for various troublemakers and other wankers who just use it as an excuse for acting out their delusions and self-esteem building attention whorings (and doing things they know their parents hate ...)
to hell with that guy in general for all the voices getting silenced. titania mcgrath was suspended for 12 hours and no one knows why, but at least she came back to enlighten us about the wicked patriarchy.
gen. mccristol I don't know what to do in afganistan and the generals I talk to don't know what t do either! 2200 american soldiers dead and nearly 2000 american contractors. saigon now ho chi minh city soon kabul mullah omar city? america has the tiger by the tail and can't let go. all your dead taliban pictures mean squat!
over 2200 americans have now died in afganistan. 10 americans have died this last two weeks week. also nearly 2000 american private contractors have died mostly ex-military. and you think this shows we are winning?
#2 havent you heard that the pyramids are the work of Shaitan and the Jews and must be destroyed? Egyptians were those damned people from before, so they must be expunged from ever existing so The Faithful wont be lead astray.
THE PROPHET DEMANDS IT !!!
(((I recall the Muslim Brotherhood said they were going to tear down the pyramids - reminded me of that episode of Monty Python (PBUH) where the guy was going to eat Chichester Cathedral )))
What else is there to yell during a quake?
I was in Sanfagdisco, in the financial canyon, when Loma Preita hit. I had a firearm, tools, and 3/4 tank of gas. I encountered not one other person that was prepared.
Alaska is a world away from a place like SF. Sure Anchorage has it's share of east coast bums who came for the Palin welfare checks but other than that, they can take care of themselves.
Flying a plane that was basically a deathtrap when they crashed (I recall hes 2 crew members couldt get out when he crashed when they were shot down) but then then all those guys in Tanks were in a similar position (wasnt til the 90s when I saw those serbian war vids of what happens when a tank is hit and all the ammo starts burning)
@#7 Bravenloybob...i'm seeing that...and trump can't do anything to please the media. EVAH. He shows up to pay respects @midnite last nite thus avoiding leftist crazed dimbulbs and the media can't stop their hate for a moment. It was touching to see Bob Dole pay his respects also. End of an era. Won't see men like that very often in this new millennial bunch coming up...maybe the dykes.
I really find it distasteful that the media refers to our former presidents and families as 'royalty'. THAT is deplorable. This remark made by Fox News host this am during the run up to the Bush funeral. President Trump's graciousness is ignored by both sides as it was ignored during that rat McCain's funeral.
I remember watching H W's press conferences, which were refreshing because he could answer questions on all kinds of topics in understandable fashion. Then the Washington Post would publish a raw transcript of his remarks, improperly punctuated and yet including every "um". Those publications were derisive, and gave a false impression, because the answers were context sensitive.
It is a pleasure to watch a DJT press conference. They remind me of HW.
Rest his sole, and God bless his current successor.
A large asteroid could be headed toward us in the near future — barreling through space on a risk trajectory that might cause it to collide with Earth.
The news comes from the Express, which cites NASA sources revealing that the space rock could end up engaged in not one, but a staggering 62 different potential impact trajectories with our planet — each of them waiting to sling the asteroid toward Earth over the next 100 years.

A 100 Years? Why did you even tease us with this. That is absolutely useless for us now.
Hopefully, NASA will research and find a solution to masturbation. It causes hair loss; it makes your dick small; and instead of going for your wife or girl-friend and bang her, you're just banging your hand. Not really a fun. A solution needed.
All of you know of course that this was not a spontaneous decision to dump the garbage over the cliff. The senior Guthrie spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to research out how Arlo could avoid the draft because he hated this country and said so to everybody. His lawyers found the section in the draft code about unrepentant felons not to be inducted. So the picked up the most innocuous Felony on the books to use so he could explain it away if needed as just some stupid law from the stone age and he really was a victim. Then they set the whole thing up with the Judge, Sheriff, and District Attorney and executed it with their endorsement (with deliberately laid "evidence"). It was just ironic that Arlo was able to cash in with this. Again children of rich liberals of the 50's and 60's get to decide what rules we are to live by and what rules they do.
A few excess pounds is the curse of wealth.
The lucky poor are never in need of a diet, nor to sweat in a gym to keep the pounds off. For them being thin comes easy.
Why living in Venezuela can melt those pounds off like butter (unless you are one of those running the place, they are gaining weight).
The poor have no idea just how lucky they are.
