Gunmen detonated explosives and took a number of people hostage at a restaurant in Dhaka, Bangladesh, setting off a bloody standoff with the police on Friday night in the capital’s diplomatic zone.

Witnesses took to Twitter to report hearing gunfire, and posted images of armed paramilitary officers surrounding the restaurant, the Holey Artisan Bakery, which is said to be popular with expatriates, diplomats and middle-class families. It is in the city’s Gulshan neighborhood.

Here's today's daily contribution from the religion of peace. Today's contribution comes from the land of Bangladesh.

How many hours until the next attack?

What are the liberals going to blame this one on? Homophobia? Global warming? Bush?

Apdst,

Maybe it would be better if the liberals would take responsibility for a destructive and failed foreign policy and admit that sometimes the only way to combat evil is to face it and defeat it.

Anybody who uses the phrase "the liberals" can be pretty much ignored.

I'm surprised that you don't follow your own advice.

The carnage continues and the liberals continue to apologize.

How is the president of the USA responsible for what happens for what happens on the other side of the world?

I guess that all depends on what you expect from a President and the leader the greatest world power in history.

Maybe making excuses, developing alibis, and apologizing works for some people, but not all.

I hope they catch the Christian GOP NRA members who did this.

Bangladesh is part of an axis of Asian countries where religious violence moves in 3 basic directions:

- Hindus in India attack Muslims and Sikhs.
- Muslims in Pakistan attack Hindus
- Bangladeshi nationalist Muslims attack everyone

This is just the latest episode in what is essentially a never ending cycle of retaliation.

Interesting, the word "Muslims" was mentioned in all three of your examples.
