Nope. They must be both willing and able to be at all effective. These guys were willing, but short on the able side.
As with dumb criminals, our best hope is dumb suicide bombers. Remember the car bomb guys in Israel who had their clock set wrong, so the bomb went off as they were driving it to the target?
Suicide bombers are self-selected for stupid!
Damn, time to break out the magic marker again.
I don't remember that one. Anytime these guys are taken out of action without hurting the good guys is really good fortune. In general, I would rather they get caught, like that woman bomber in Jordan. She provided a lot of good intel it would seem from some early reports.
The city council from the Austrian city of Graz will push to have its stadium named after them.
It happened back in 1999. Two coordinated car bombs went off prematurely because of a daylight savings time mixup between the guys who set the bomb and the drivers. Nobody was hurt except for the drivers. Gotta love it.
I was going to post "spring forward, fall backward" but then didn't. Interesting that it was a daylight savings mix up.
Better late than never
Thanks for the ping!
