The Associated Press has toted up the numbers from weekend terrorist attacks and it isn’t good.

There have been 250 killed and 470 injured from mass casualty attacks in Kenya, Pakistan and Iraq. The bloodiest attack took place in Pakistan where 78 people were killed in a suicide attack on a Christian church in Peshawar.

The butcher’s bill:

- Saturday, Sept. 21, through Sunday, Sept. 22: Nairobi, Kenya – Islamic extremist gunmen lobbing grenades and firing assault rifles inside an upscale mall in Nairobi kill at least 68 people, wound more than 175 others and hold an unknown number of others hostage.

- Saturday, Sept. 21: Baghdad – A wave of attacks, mainly on a Shiite funeral in Baghdad, kill 104 people and wound more than 140 others.

- Sunday, Sept. 22: Peshawar, Pakistan – A pair of suicide bombers blow themselves up amid hundreds of worshippers at a church in northwestern Pakistan, killing at least 78 and wounding more than 140 others..

- Sunday, Sept. 22, Baghdad – Iraqi authorities say a suicide attacker killed at least 16 people and wounded at least 35 others at a Sunni funeral.

You have to wonder how long it will be before the violence reaches our shores. Terrorists are becoming more sophisticated and harder to track. That Kenyan mall caper took planning, practice, and execution — just like the Benghazi attack that killed our ambassador. It takes vigilance skill and a lot of luck to intercept these attacks before they can take place. So far, we’ve had plenty of luck.

Let’s hope we continue with the vigilance and skill.

They are importing jihadi's under the ruse of asylum . Many have been re-located to Minneapolis area. In fact two of the al shabbab attackers in Kenya were from Minneapolis. I have said for years the Mall of America wiil be a soft target. Complete suicidal insanity.

Simply a matter of time. With the way this administration treats terror with kid gloves and a laizee faire attitude they are inviting an attack on a grand scale. Almost daring it to happen. Disgraceful.
