Death toll in Somalia hotel attack rises to 26

Damn those white nationalist. Why it seems like just yesterday, that MSNBC was reporting that all the terrorist attacks were being carried out by Trump supporting white nationalist.

From CNN:

At least 26 people were killed and a further 56 injured in Friday's terror attack at a hotel in Kismayo, Somalia, Jubaland state president Ahmed Madobe said Saturday morning.

Colonel Salah Osman, a police officer who was part of the rescue operation on Friday night, told CNN that the attack began when a car bomb exploded in a suicide blast at the gate of the Asasey, a heavily fortified hotel 500 km south of the capital Mogadishu. An assault team of four attackers then entered the premises and battled with Jubaland's security forces for 12 hours.

1. Oh boy . . . .

from the link in the OP

"Among the dead were three Kenyans, three Tanzanians, two Americans, one Canadian and one Briton, Madobe said."

Two Americans -

Does this mean the USA hasta "help" Somalia like they did Syria?

3. I bet those "Americans, Canadians, and Britons" were actually Somalis

Nobody goes there as a tourist. Somalis claim refugee status because their home country is unsafe for them, and then go back there on vacation frequently.

4. I get tired of stats like that

"amond the dead were miscelanous Americans" who if they weren't there, wouldn't be dead.

I understand that if they were purposefully targeted because they were Americans that takes it up a notch but just the fact they were standing there on vaca eating a snow cone (do they have snow cones in Somolia?) why is that supposed to make the story of more importance to me?

And then a place like Shithole, I mean Somolia, why'd they go there anyway, they probably knew what they were getting into. I seriously get tired of it, it's overinflation of the story by the press every time. Other than that, suicide blasts in Shithole, I mean Somolia, are an every day occurence.
