    Here we go again

    The raid on the hotel, which was popular with foreigners and used by airline crews, comes a week after attackers killed 129 people in Paris.

    In response, France announced the immediate dispatch of 50 elite counter-terrorism police to the country.

    Mali army commander Modibo Nama Traore told The Associated Press that gunmen stormed the hotel shouting "Allahu Akbar," or "God is great," in Arabic before firing on the guards and taking hostages.

    The hotel's owner said it was working to establish the names and nationalities of those taken.

    "They have locked in about 140 guests and about 30 employees," a spokeswoman for the Carlson Rezidor group, told NBC News. "So the hotel is locked down and there is no possibility to go out or come in."

    I imagine most of the hostages dark skinned.... don't expect wide interest or outrage

    Google Maps says "No route found" from current location to Bamako so I feel better.

    Just remember:
    Bush - 50.7%
    Kerry - 48.3%

    That's how close we came to getting hit with that bullet.
