On 21 September 2013, an upscale mall (photo above) became a war zone in Kenya.
This mall attack is partly about oil, oil pipelines, naval bases and the US struggle against China.
Kenya has become friendly with China.
A few years ago, the Chinese defence minister agreed to modernise Kenya's armed forces.
(The sound of silence)
China's trade with Kenya has been rising.
In Kenya, the Chinese have invested in mining and offshore oil exploration, plus some big infrastructure projects, such as new bypasses around Nairobi.
(The sound of silence)
Kenya is the base for US intelligence operations in East Africa and the Horn of Africa.
(Kenya: post-election violence continues)
There are newly discovered oil reserves in Eastern Congo. The oil is to be brought by pipeline through Kenya to Mombasa on the coast.
China is currently involved in major highway projects in Kenya."

The Somalian terrorist group al-Shabaab, which has links to the CIA's Al-Qaeda, has now claimed responsibility for the 21 September 2013 Westlands shopping mall attack in Nairobi, in Kenya.
Al Shabaab, reportedly working for the CIA.
Somalia has oil and both China and the USA/NATO want to grab this oil.
Kenya is interested in the oil. Kenya has troops in Somalia.
In the Westlands shopping mall, there are at least 50 people dead and more than 150 injured.
The massacres were later discovered to be linked to Operation Gladio, which was a CIA-NATO enterprise.
"The Supermarket massacres occurred during the period when the U.S. was pushing a plan to base the Euro-Missiles (nuclear-tipped Cruise missiles) in different European countries...
"The Belgian Parliament, which investigated the incidents, felt that they were another attempt to sow confusion and fear among the populace, thereby generating public outcries for a law-and-order government which would be amenable to the Euro-Missles."

The people who attacked the Kenyan shopping mall are described as follows:
"They spoke something that seemed like Arabic..."
"One had dreadlocks."

In 2002, it was reported that 'al Qaeda' had bombed the Israeli Paradise Hotel (above) at Kikambala Beach near Mombasa.
Before bombings... / Kenyan hotel bombs the work of the security services?

COMMENTS from readers:
1. The photographer Tyler Hicks always seems to be there to capture the moment.
Witness to a Massacre in a Nairobi Mall
That means psyop.
What is the chance that this top notch photographer would be in the mall to "record the event"
Tyler Hicks, who always somehow seems to be at the hottest of hot spots and war zones when things explode, did it again today, improbably being inside the mall in Nairobi when the bomb went off.
2. "We knew the shopping center is owned by Israelis and renowned as a place where many Israelis hang out," Lopez told Maariv.
Israel’s Deputy Ambassador to Kenya Yaki Lopez and the embassy’s security officer arrived early in the afternoon Saturday at the command center of the local security forces, following the first reports about the attack.

Lots of bad blood there with the UK establishment.

A WESTFIELD SHOPPING CENTRE - Owned by none other than Frank Lowy!
'these global shopping centres you own seem to attract a suspiciously unusual amount of terrorist activity Frank!'
Fifty days before 9/11, Larry Silverstein's Silverstein Properties and Frank Lowy's Westfield America secured a 99-year lease on World Trade Center Buildings One, Two, Four and Five. Silverstein already owned Building Seven.
Silverstein and Westfield America insured the WTC complex for $3.55 billion, but after the attacks of September 11 lodged a claim for $7.1 billion on the premise that each plane collision constituted a separate act of terrorism, doubling thepayout.
-11 September 2001: New York, the WTC complex buildings 1, 2, and 7 along with Westfield Hotel were ruined in the 9/11 attacks, and consequently about $5.4 billion went into the pockets of Lowy and Silverstein.
-21 September 2005: Westfield Mall in Perth, Australia, bomb threat.
Frank Lowy reportedly owns Marriott hotels
-21 July 2007: Court house adjacent Westfield Centre Derby, England, bomb threat, which caused evacuation of Westfield premises.
-01 March 2008: Westfield Old Orchard Mall, Skokie, Illinois, bomb threat.
-20 April 2009: Westfield Hotel Annapolis, bomb threat.
-20 September 2008: Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan, bombing.
-17 July 2008: Marriott Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia, bombing.
-August 2012: London... wait, that one didn't quite happen for ya did it Frank!)
In 2011, Kenya's Raila Odinga and Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu promised to strengthen security ties. Odinga was defeated in the 2013 presidential election in Kenya.
6. "Israeli agents" were involved "in the siege"...
"The Israelis have just entered"... a Kenyan security source told AFP....
"Kenyan Vice President William Ruto has asked the International Criminal Court to delay his trial for crimes against humanity over deadly 2007-08 post election violence because of the mall standoff, his lawyer said...
"Foreign security agents - from Israel as well as the United States and Britain - were also seen at the complex throughout the drama...

7. Here are the addresses of the Israeli and US embassies to Kenya.
You can politely ask the representatives of these nations what they know about the terrorist attack.
Bishop Road (near the intersection with Second Ngong Avenue).
United Nations Avenue
Both are just a short walk from Westgate Mall on Mwanzi Road.
Or ask the embassy staff at their places of residences. No doubt Russian and Chinese diplomatic staff know their locations. The wealthy expats areas are small and close-knit. And probably not very well guarded either...
Ask them if they've ever heard of the NATO "Strategy of Tension". Or read the legal transcripts in the aftermath of the Bologna train station bombing.
Also ask their opinions on Chinese oil exploration in Somalia, and recent foreign partitioning of Somalia into controllable fragments such as Jubaland.
Northern Somalia would also be an excellent location for Chinese naval basing to protect China's economically critical sea lines of communication for oil transport.
And maybe you can ask why the gunmen didn't take a leisurely stroll down to the Israeli and US embassies and unleash hell there, instead of killing innocent people.
Hmm, and why were those Israeli soldiers there? Can Kenyan special forces not handle a ragtag bunch of bloodthirsty amateurs?
And isn't it unusual how Al Shabab's Twitter updates are in fluent English.
8. "Ilana Stein, a spokeswoman for Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the attack took place near the ArtCaffe, an Israeli-owned coffee shop and bakery popular with foreigners that is one of 80 businesses in the mall.
