This is sick…

If anyone still thinks that ‘one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter’ (think Mahathir) ought to take a hard long look at this news article, and then at themselves.

Baghdad’s fragile peace was shattered yesterday when explosives strapped to two women with Down’s syndrome were detonated by remote control in crowded pet markets, killing at least 91 people in the worst attacks that the capital had experienced for almost a year.

Iraqi and American officials blamed al-Qaeda, and accused the terrorist organisation of plumbing new depths of depravity. Condoleezza Rice, the US Secretary of State, said that al-Qaeda’s use of mentally-handicapped women as bombers showed that it had “no political programme here that is acceptable to a civilised society and that this is the most brutal and the most bankrupt of movements”.

After reading news reports like this, fundamentalist and radical are lame adjectives to attach to al-Qaeda. Calling them murderers is simply a compliment.

This is evil.

Pure evil. It isn’t even about winning converts and admirers anymore.  This is simply an ego trip. Damn these people!

    i just posted about the same article…I’m a little skeptical, but then most of the news about Iraq makes me feel the same. It’s hard to find this more diabolical than a nation that will drop J-Dams on civilians. If it’s a matter of how it’s done rather than how many killed, then I think perspective has gone out the window
