They’re Rockin’ the Town Again

…in another fondly remembered snake pit.

96 Somalis die as Islamic, secular gangs battle
Sides fight for control of capital; Muslim group might have al-Qaida ties
…Most of the victims were civilians caught in the crossfire.

Of course they were. Spray and slay boys never hit jack that they mean to.
UPDATE: Speaking of snake pits that just never seem to go away, things will be turning ugly in short order, I fear.

Israeli fuel firm halts Palestinian gas supply
Palestinian gas stations began shutting down and motorists lined up at pumps after an Israeli fuel company cut off deliveries Wednesday, deepening the humanitarian crisis in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that has followed Hamas’ rise to power.
…Dor Energy, the Israeli company that has been the sole fuel provider to the Palestinians since interim peace agreements were signed in the mid-1990s, cited growing debts for its decision, Palestinian officials said. Dor officials declined comment, but the company had threatened to cut off supplies twice before this year — only to be paid at the last minute by the Palestinians.

It’ll be a good deal harder to put together a Molotov cocktail.

    That’s why you see so many of those idiots holding their AKs sideways to counteract the tendency to climb high and to the right after a few rounds on full auto. I think the 5.45 mm AK-74 model that the Spetznaz uses has a cut-away flash suppressor to reduce that tendency.
    Not that I want the terrorists to practice their marksmanship, mind you.

  2. Same with the Latino gangs in Santa Ana and LA when we lived there. They’d spray the whole damn sidewalk full of gang bangers and only kill grannies or babies in cribs.

    They just ‘spray and pray’.
