Gunmen stormed a hotel in the capital of the West African nation of Mali Friday morning. The attack came as the threat from the radical Islamic group ISIL was felt across the globe this week.

In France, mourning continued for 130 people killed in the Paris terror attacks last Friday.Meanwhile, French authorities conducted a series of raids that included hunting down and killing the alleged ring leader.

And a Chinese hostage was killed by ISIL resulting in strong reaction from Beijing.

While in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin vowed to punish those responsible for the recent bombing by ISIL of a Russian jet in Egypt.

As refugees continue to flee ISIL’s violence in Syria and Iraq, terror fears fueled a U.S. backlash against resettling the war-weary in America.

    Vladimir Golstein is right about tracing these events back to their origins, which translates as meaning the responsibility goes back to Washington and its engagement of Saudi Arabia as a recruiting and funding partner for al Qaeda and all the subsequent spin-offs. The attacks in Paris are but the tip of the iceberg of this CIA-Frankenstein called extremist Islam and it is a telltale sign of France’s colonial status that not a single French official or opinion leader is blaming the US for what it has created and is still controlling as a means of engaging France (Syria’s former colonial occupying power from the end of WWI till the end of WWII) in the US proxy war in Syria.

    Now that Russia has taken over the battle against the openly US-backed and US-funded “moderate” rebels as well as ISIS, the US military does not have the ground knowledge to operate on the ground to shore up its “rebels”… thus the involvement of France was needed and (surprise! surprise!) has now been achieved. There are no coincidences in politics at this level… after every event, the first question to ask is: “Who benefitted?” The answer points the way to the probable originator of the event.
