"Gunmen Carry Out Deadly Attack on Ivory Coast Beach Resort"
The killers were screaming "Allahu Akbar" so evidently not Muslims, despite their comrades' own claims,, according to official U.S. policy

I am so sad to read the Global Warming has once more taken innocent lives in the name of it's Go- what's that? It wasn't the weather? But Obama said...

More free advertising brought to by the religion of peace.

I have it on good authority that at this very moment President Obama is on his way Ivory Coast where he will give a long speech/lecture on the need for outreach to the Muslim community and how Ivorians must fight their inherent anti-Muslim racism.

Attention seeking behavior by terrorist organizations looking to bolster flagging recruitment going to ISIS. We still don't have a regime that gets it.

Seems like the term terrorist means radical Islamists or Muslims.
'Let's not be hasty. The worldview of the guys who created this grisly spectacle of mass murder could be any number of......aaaaaand it's Islam!'

Thank you for your completely thoughtless analysis. Neither side has any ethical imperative; both believe in promoting their hegemony through violence. Neither side deserves any respect for their tribal mind sets.

Maybe if they had background checks this wouldn't have happened.
"Gunmen Carry Out Deadly Attack on Ivory Coast Beach Resort"Let me fix that headline for our PC editors."Islamist Terrorists Carry Out Deadly Attack on Ivory Coast Beach Resort"

I don't want to believe it but maybe Trump is right.
Actually, he was thing up traffic in Austin to make 2 fund-raising dinners

So this and the other headline of the day don't indicate or reference "Muslim" or "Muslim Extremists." Interesting. Very PC of the WSJ, following the Obama guidelines of speech. But if someone gets pushed at a Trump rally its, "Violence Breaks Out Again at Trump Rally."

Ever since Kadhafi was killed by western intervention, Libya has been an ISIS land and a growing threat to the African continent.
Perhaps they were called "gunmen" because they had guns. Take your bigotry somewhere else.

Does this mean with are in jeopardy of not getting "Our Girls" back? Or is this something that can rectified with "diplomatic solutions" and "leading from behind"?
Tolerance, respecting others are good values. But so is standing up to evil and bullies who would kill the innocent. I believe it is possible to learn who these idiots are and bring them to justice. It seems possible that we may also choose to put our heads in the sand and somehow think that this will all pass by.

Yup. As usual some folks killed a bunch of other folks.
What does it matter?
Well, Obozo the Wise has declared that terrorism is too pedestrian, too mundane a problem for his ambitious personality to tackle. Terrorism does not represent an "existential" threat, states our resident sage-philosopher-king. Which naive sentiment, I suppose, could also have been flippantly stated about Nazism pre-World War II. With his lifetime Secret Service protection, Obozo will not ever have to worry about jihadists gunning down concertgoers, supermarket shoppers, vacationers on a beach, or, municipal employees, or, be hassled by suicide bombers on a bus or plane. Therefore, in his egotistical quest for a more epic, sweeping challenge, "climate change" is deemed to be the real threat that is worthy of his attention and tenacity. Who are we to question Obozo's infallible sagacity?

By your logic the dudes who flew planes into the WTC should've been called "pilots"...

Seems like these people need an Obama lecture about inclusiveness and diversity.
Unless of course you believe less should be expected...more than a little racist, I think.

Why bother going to Africa when we have Africa right in our own backyard with Chicago, Detroit, LA, New Orleans, Ferguson and Baltimore?
