    Al Qaeda Promises U.S. Death By A 'Thousand Cuts'
    Terror Group Boasts That Printer Bomb Cost Only $4200, Meant To Bleed U.S. Economy.


    A tactic laid out long ago in The Management of savagery
    Refereed to as vexation and exhaustion projects .

    Printer bombs planted on two cargo flights last month cost only a few thousand dollars and were intended to affect the American economy, according to a newly published Al Qaeda-affiliated magazine.

    The attempt was called "Operation Hemorrhage," boasted the magazine, and the entire plot cost al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, only $4,200.

    Yesterday, a special edition of Inspire magazine -- an English-language propaganda publication produced by AQAP -- gave a detailed description of how the attempted attack was conceived and produced.

    I wonder who will advertise on Inspire magazine ?

    Siamese fighting fish, fascinating creatures. Brave but of the whole stupid. Yes they're stupid. Except for the occasional one such as we have here who lets the other two fight. While he waits. Waits until the survivor is so exhausted that he cannot defend himself, and then like SPECTRE... he strikes!
