The Religion Of Peace Strikes Again
BAGHDAD (Feb. 1) - Remote-controlled explosives strapped to two mentally retarded women detonated in a coordinated attack on Baghdad pet bazaars Friday, Iraqi officials said, killing at least 73 people in the deadliest day since the U.S. sent 30,000 extra troops to the capital last spring. (emphasis added)Iraqi Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi said the women had Down Syndrome, according to AP, which also said many of the dead were teenage boys. That's what you'd expect if you decide to bomb a pet market.
It's also clear that they weren't deemed by their handlers to be willing suicide bombers, so they were sent either unknowingly or unwillingly to their remote-controlled deaths.
As you consider what was done this morning in the name of Allah, please remember that this is "anti-Islamic behavior" at work, not terrorism. We wouldn't want to get unnecessarily concerned about the evil capacity of the Religion of Peace, would we?
Update: As of 12:43 p.m. PST, the LA Times had not updated its on-line story with news that the women were mentally retarded, and the bombs were triggered remotely.
