    At least 27 killed in Tunisian beach attack.

    Tunisia attack on Sousse beach 'kills 27' - BBC News


    Rough day to follow the news that's for sure. I wonder if this is tied with ISIS rally call for militants to step up their attacks during Ramadan.

    Syria crisis: Islamic State 'kills 120 civilians' in Kobane - BBC News

    Ties in with around 120 civillians dead near and in Kobane. Makes me sad to see ISIS back on Kobane's doorstep.

    Good heavens. Why?
    I doubt anyone can blame this on US presence in the ME.

    A lot of western tourists in the region, makes it a tasty target for Islamic militants.

    They just want to kill anyone that isn't with them. They need no excuse.

    There is no crisis that capitalism can't get out of if the working class is willing to pay for it.

    That would imply a clash of cultures.

    How dare you jump the gun and imply that this was an act of Islamic terrorism. There are a whole host of potential other explanations.

    Oh, but they will.

    You see, the terrorist supports here always have this one moronic little platitude to offer when all else fails. They see it as their trump card, perfect in it's utterly repulsive simple-mindedness, and applicable in any instance when they wish to show solidarity with Islamist terrorism.

    What a horrible day and my sympathies out to the holidaymakers who were caught up or killed today.
