    Actually, the western media used the term machete. I believe the proper name for the weapon is Panga.

    (from Wiki)

    The tapanga is a variant used in East and southern Africa. This name may be of Swahili etymology; not to be confused with the Panga fish. The panga blade broadens on the backside and has a length of 16 to 18 inches (41 to 46 cm). The upper inclined portion of the blade may be sharpened.[12] This tool was used as a weapon in South Africa particularly in the 1980s and early 1990s when the former province of Natal was wracked by conflict between the African National Congress and the Zulu-nationalist Inkatha Freedom Party.

    And like in Bosnia, when Christians or Non Muslims fight back, the UN will send a peacekeeping force in to protect the muslims and execute the people who fought back.

    I just thought it was kind of funny the article from Wiki he quotes to bolster his claim the tapanga is not a machete is ABOUT machetes and clearly identifies the tapanga as one. For what it's worth, on St. Croix dam near everyone had a machete and probably 20 to 30 percent were technically tapangas but everyone just called them machetes.

    I believe Robin Guitars in Texas once made a model called the "Machete."


    What does that have to do with anything??


    Probably nothing.


    "Robin" fans chime in...............

    Muslims and Christians have been killing each other in Nigeria for a while now.

    Why isn't the media reporting that the sky is blue?

    Besides, wasn't the attack by the "muslims" in retaliation for a previous violent attack by the "christians"?
