A suicide bomber detonated his car near a police checkpoint in eastern Lebanon on Friday, killing two people, the country's state-run news agency reported.

A senior Lebanese security official confirmed the blast in the town of Dahr el-Baidar, at the entrance to eastern Lebanon's Bekaa Valley.

I’m not sure what the number is with suicide bombers, but with planes an exchange rate of lower than 11/1 is losing, or at least not winning. Maybe it’s different with human bombs. I worked with lots of Israelis as I was a manager in an American division of an Israeli company. They ALL knew somebody who had been killed in a terror attack. It was as normal to them as seeing a bus is to us. It had no effect on their will to win. Quite the opposite, they’d never have surrendered to somebody who would treat them that way. So, will human bombs be a winning tactic? Probably not by themselves. If the Jihad wins, does anybody think they’ll stop killing? Killing is the only tool in their kit.

East Lebanon? Is he a pioneer, or such a loser he couldn’t get to where the real action was?
