Sign of the Times

Omens of a chaotic year are everywhere, including Aarhus, Denmark. One shattered window later and Kurt Westergaard was racing his granddaughter to a safe room. Police responded to the alarm two minutes later to find a Somali wielding an ax and knife.

Kurt Westergaard drew a bomb on Mohammed's head. According to Politiets Efterretningstjeneste (PET), Denmark’s intelligence agency, “The arrested man has according to PET's information close relations to the Somali terrorist group, al-Shabaab, and al-Qaida leaders in eastern Africa.”

The suspect was shot in the leg and arm, leaving him alive - intel and a spectacle to kick off another decade of global terrorism.

This incident also has the hallmarks of a mea culpa for al-Shabab's bombing of the medical graduation. Back to killing "infidels" instead of Somali civilians. Will al-Shabab's latest action further repulse the world, or actually gain a few Muslim converts? Keep in mind, more than Islamic terrorists called for his Westergaard's death.

President Obama needs an Afghanistan/Pakistan/Iran/Iraq/Israel/Palestine/Lebanon/Syria/Saudi Arabia/Yemen/Somalia conference. America's global "War on Terror" is spinning out of control and military aggression isn't the solution.
