Somalia: Mogadishu Tech Massacre

Espresso Royale Commentaries discusses “Mogadishu tech massacre”:
The Mogadishu massacre was bigger in number but lesser known to most people because it didn’t make to be a prime media piece. This massacre was even worse. It was Virginia Tech shooting multiplied by 100 and it is repeated daily and ongoing.
In Mogadishu, there is no lone psycho-shooter, no Cho Seung-Hui but thousands of American-armed and trained Ethiopian killers, equipped not with 9 mm handgun and a .22-calibur pistol but with M16 rifles, machine guns, heavy mortars, howitzers, armored vehicles tanks and helicopters, all USA made, gift to the Ethiopian killers.
