In the news today, I've been hearing, that a woman was willing to blow herself, and her six month old child up in the name of the fight against the infidels. WTF is up with these people? Is their lives so devoid of promise, that they have given up? I remember a scene from the GodFather II, where a Cuban blew himself up taking out some military police, that one act sure seemed to impress Mikael Corlione I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't put much value on someone blowing themselves up. Seems the act of a desperate person, that has found themselves in a desperate situation. It seems most of these "bombings" are done by the young or female bombers, wonder if THAT means anything? One just has to wonder why these bombers can't see the folly of their sacrifice. I wonder why they haven't asked those that are strapping the explosive to them, why THEY don't sacrifice THEMSELVES? The monks in Vietnam didn't blow anyone up, but they did light themselves on fire. I can respect that, they belive, and are willing to make a very graphic statement of their faith. These bombers are blowing up innocent people, women, and children, non-combatants. Seems to me, that it just has the reverse effect, rather than respect their sacrifice, it just pisses people off. I don't know, maybe its just me.
