Not wishing to push too hard on the Nairobi terrorist atrocity, the following may be of interest. British hero of the mall massacre: How ex-Royal Marine with a handgun saved 100 lives as terrorists ran amok             Link updated from previous report article-2430201-18374C1000000578-550_964x370The ex Royal Marine was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday (left). With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex (right). He is said to have returned to the building on a dozen occasions, despite intense gunfire. Sources said the soldier was part of the Special Forces. He cannot be named for security reasons. A friend in Nairobi said: ‘What he did was so heroic. He went back in 12 times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.’ no_guns_allowed_sign_5727

As NavyDavy commented on the previous post Nairobi, the death of innocents “I try to avoid places that have this sign in the window”——-> It would appear 100 people in the Westgate mall probably owe their life to the fact that such signs didn’t exist!

Well Done Royal…    Yours Aye.

Three American TEENAGERS ‘were mall gunmen’ and one Briton: Kenyan foreign minister says men aged 18 to 19 from Minnesota among terrorists  Acts of treason, terrorism, and bloody murder by cowardly traitors who live among us.

Shore Duty Versus Sea Duty

In the Navy, we generally have two different kinds of billets, sea duty and shore duty. I just switched over to the former and it is demanding. What I am trying to say is that I may be posting (as you can surely tell) in a drastically scantier (word-wise) fashion. Ex Bootneck and America’s Sergeant Major are doing a bang-up job in my absence. So much so that surely one or five of you must be thinking I hope that Navy guy stays away. Sort of like the substitute teacher thing in grade school. As usual, thanks to them and to you, for visiting.

Pier Pressure

The petition to deport Piers Morgan has climbed to well over 30K. If you are not aware of it, Ex Bootneck linked to this article in a previous post on the man/bottom dweller. (Apparently, Piers was involved in a sleazy photo scandal.) I vote we deport this guy too, while we are at it. Think of all the money we are spending keeping him warm and fed. (An alligator in Detroit. Who is the genius who had that as a pet?)
