Eighteen Years Ago Today

Received via email this morning from a cyber friend who frequents I Love Dino Martin:


Today marks the anniversaries of two of the most well known terrorist bombings in US history. On August 7th, 1998 our U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by radical Islamic Jihadist groups affiliated with Al Qaeda and others.

The terrorists used trucks packed with explosives which smashed through the gates of our embassies in each country. They were set off almost simultaneously between 10:30 AM and 10:40 AM. The bombs killed approximately 212 people and injured 4,000 more in Kenya while the bomb in Tanzania killed 11 and injured 85.

12 Americans were killed. Though the attacks targeted American embassies, the majority of those killed were natives. This is the same pattern that Al Qaeda continued to follow in Iraq and Afghanistan, willingly slaughtering innocent civilians for a chance to get at US troops.

Remember these tragic attacks and let them remind us that the War on Terror did not start on September 11, 2001, nor even with these bombings in 1998, it goes back much further. For decades, these Jihadist groups have been targeting US and Israeli citizens...and they show no sign of stopping.

While President Obama talks about having Al Qaeda and ISIS on the run, we have seen more terror attacks during his administration. The terrorists remains bent on killing Americans and westerners while Obama continues to claim that global warming represents a bigger danger to America.

First Sept 11, Now Saudi Arabia Linked To German Terrorst Attacks
ISIS has been aggressive to claim responsibility deflecting any attention from Saudi Arabia which may soon emerge as the mastermind not only behind German terrorist attacks, but those in France and Belgium too.

We had notice of the Kenya and Tanzania Embassy bombings were preceded by an evacuation of US personnel and their families on USAF aircraft...that's why the loss of life was small.

Naturally, that story never made it out, but it's none the less, true.
