Terrorist bomb detonates on bombers

TIKRIT, Iraq – One terrorist was killed and another severely injured when the improvised explosive device they were attempting to emplace detonated prematurely. The incident occurred Dec. 19, near the city of Tikrit.

Tikrit police and Soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team responded to the explosion. The police officers performed first-aid on the injured bomber, who was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The IED was composed of a 155 mm artillery shell and a detonating device, according to an explosives ordnance team investigating the explosion.

Soldiers searching the area discovered another artillery round and several other IED components in a nearby vehicle.

In addition to the wounded bomber, two other men were detained for allegedly attempting to help the surviving bomber avoid the responding security forces.

Natural selection dictates that, over time, the remaining pool of prospective homicide bombers will become dumber and dumberer.

This happens occasionally and I wonder if the US is employing any kind of RF technology to try to detonate these things remotely.

We're too nice. They should have just let the bomber bleed to death.

They should have shot him in the head and then thrown Spam on him to deny him entry into Allah's great circle party in the sky.

I don't think they were being merciful. After they get done interrogating him, he'll probably wish they had let him die.

Yeah, you'd think the Iraqis would have created their own version of OSHA by now. Maybe call it expl-OSHA.

"There should be a law to neuter all captured terrorists."

We need a prop arm to attach stigma to the martyrdom mentality of suicide bombers - something like "they only do it because they caught AIDs from slurping Arafat".

I agree. I would have put a bullet in the bomber's stomach to increase the pain.

FOFLMAO ... I wish there were videotape of that!

As for the Darwin awards ... all the suicide bombers should be earning those ... it is idiotic to remove oneself from the gene pool by blowing oneself up in an attempt to kill a few other people you hate. DUMB and DUMBER.

Question from ignorance; expecting some smart Freeper can 'splain to me:

Would it be posible to create a transmitter that would send out wide ranging frequencies to detonate those things?

I do not know for sure. But I think it is possible assuming the bomb was detonated by cell phone or other radiotransmitter.

Q: How do you perform first-aid/CPR on a terrorist?

A: Bend down and say in his ear, "Die M-F, die die die..."

Company Commander: "Soldier, how did that bayonet get lodged in his throat?"

Soldier: "I guess it happened when the IED went off"........Sir............(chortle.)

Company Commander: "Soldier, what do you know about this?"

2nd Soldier: "Well, I think the corpsman was trying to clear an airway or something. What do I know, I'm just a grunt."

Company Commander: "Well, good job men, keep up the good work.....Oh, here's your bayonet back. Better sharpen it again, got some bone chips on that blade there."

There's been rumors of Israelis driving around in vans broadcasting signals that cause bombs being built by Pallie terrorists to prematurely go kaboom. I haven't heard anything real definite, but there are rumors.

Oh, they didn't read the instructions carefully. "Emplace," not "embrace."

I know we must not stoop to their level (I really do) but it would be very satisfying if they allowed the Iraqis to parade whatever is left of their bodies through the streets.

Yep, and the bad guys learned real quick not to use car alarms and garage door transmitters for their work. After a few "unexplained" premature detonations they figured out that a high power broad spectrum transmitter on the known frequencies plays havoc on their IED builders.

I don't know. There are two ways to follow that. First, you really have to question the intelligence of someone who would do it in the first place. This leads one to think that the really stupid ones are the ones who step up first, the rest being too smart to do it. However, you can also argue that the ones that continue to volunteer are too stupid to learn.

It's an arggument over who is more stupid, Bevis or Butthead.
