give me doughnuts: I blame it on his being Muslim. If he had been Lutheran or Buddhist, I doubt a foreign education would have radicalized him enough to try and blow up a plane.

What a radical Lutheran might look like:

snugglyhugs: RockIsDead: snugglyhugs: Is there any way it could have worked?

Let's say you could have 20lbs of bomb material in your crotch (it was probably a lot less than that)

Is that enough to blow a passenger jet out of the air?

All it takes is one good hole in the fuselage.

This happened in 1988 at 24,000 feet and the plane landed fine

I blame the whole post elementary school education system that has failed us all. In the long run, was that Middle School/High School/University/College education really needed? Whether you are flipping burgers, steaming milk, or lighting your crotch on fire, it is the liberal arts/social studies education that radicalized you.

I've seen the map, and as if I'm gonna listen to a bunch of Nigerians debate it anyways. Please.

Now if he'd been BAPTIST....one shudders to think of the carnage.

Lutheran terrorists are home grown (new window).

Buddhists tend to do their violence in the name of the State, as Japanese soldiers did in their rape of China during WWII, and let's not forget the political violence and repression in Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar.

jepzilla: Duh, he went to university in London.

No trolling, the UK has a huge problem with extremist Ismalists, and the government seems to be either incapable or unwilling to deal with the problem. Probably a combination of both; the muslim community is a huge voting base in council elections for Labour. I`m not equating all muslims with muslim extremists, but the government is loathe to crackdown lest they disenfranchise some of the more... sensitive members of the community who might see it as racism and xenophobia.


On the BBC's HYS they are talking about this and the most voted on comments seem to say the following:

-Why didn't anyone take the father's warning seriously
-How come the BBC says everything about the bomber except his religion
-The labour party will give out as many visas to foreign students as it takes to get reelected

That being said here are my questions:

-Why didn't anyone take the father's warning seriously?
-Does the UK really let people on student visa's vote? That seems like a terrible idea. Does the US have that?
-What would the world be like if islam had a tenant that forced followers to drink alcohol and watch pr0n?

/crotchbomber is an awesome word

Yes, because those deaths couldn't possibly be the result of insurgents, disgruntled locals, or inter-tribal/sectarian violence between Iraqis/other Muslims. You also said in this past year, yet your link discusses the period since 2007. Muslims killing Muslims, whether Kurds or Sunni/Shia Arabs killing each other is not Christian-on-Muslim violence. I'm not discounting that we can't wage war without killing anyone, but your pinning the death toll in Iraq from Muslim-on-Muslim violence in the civilian population is anything but a convincing argument to claim that those are directly the result of American forces killing civilians.

FTL: "Deaths of non-combatants such as civilian bystanders killed in firefights and other attacks involving US-led Coalition military forces rose from 544-623 in 2006 to 868-1,326 in 2007."

This is sad, and a tragic side effect of war, but it certainly isn't Christians killing 25,000 Muslims in Iraq in 2009.

You think that only 1000 civilians died as a result of the US invasion of Iraq?

31 million people live in Iraq

The US military bombed the shiat out of the country in 03 and many places have been without power, clean water, etc.. ever since.

You have to count the deaths as result of invasion, 1000 is the number killed by stray US bullets.

I can't imagine what is going on in your head if you think a country of 31 million people can be put through a full US invasion and only lose 1000 people a year

Not to mention that so much of the ideology of the left-wing faculty dovetails with, and encourages, the sense of aggrievement used to justify these acts.

I read that the shoe bomber had 50 grams of PETN while this the crotchbomber had 80grams of PETN. Checked on Youtube. IMO it seems that it could have blown a small hole in the side of the plane which would have done the most damage at a high altitude, not during landing. Can anyone speak to this?

None of it is secret. It's just that it is so common only the larger or more unusual incidents get reported. Or the ones that have some connection to your city/country/etc. A couple more Buddhist nuns getting beheaded in Thailand, or the 214th school in Afghanistan getting blown up doesn't get much air-time.

Normally you're full of shiat but this takes the cake. The mass genocide is over? Sure, the black Africans were largely driven off the land the Arabized Sudanese wanted and into refugee camps where they are too scared to go home, denied reentry into Sudan by the Arabized government or were slaughtered outright. Sounds like justice was done.

It's not over, the Arabized Sudanese simply got more effective at preventing access by aid workers that document this Arab crusade.

There's plenty of misery and suffering, and about 3 million people living in refugee camps, but yes, there is no ongoing genocide.

this Arab crusade.

It's an attempted land- and power-grab with ethnic oppression/cleansing on top, not a crusade.
Besides, wouldn't it be a crescentade?
