THE MOST UNDERUTILIZED WEAPON IN THE WESTERN ARSENAL...:

Either Allah isn’t on their side, or jihadis are just plain useless (Rod Liddle, 5/26/08, Times of London)

You would think that by now Allah’s message might be getting through. Time after time Muslim fanatics attempt to wreak devastation in Britain – and succeed only in blowing themselves up, or setting themselves on fire, or their explosives refuse to do the decent thing and explode – while we infidel cockroaches look on in bemusement, quite unharmed.

If you were a devout believer, you might put two and two together and begin to suspect that Allah doesn’t entirely approve of blowing British people to bits. He would much rather his jihadis stayed at home and watched the Eurovision Song Contest, or did a spot of gardening, or took the dog for a walk.


...is ridicule.

There ia great distinction between the hopeless doomed, fanaticism of the suicide bombers of the Spiritual Jailhouse and the hopeless, doomed fanaticism of the Japanese Kamikazes.

The suicide bombers are treacherous in the face of his enemy and indiscriminate of destruction to innocents. In other words, they are merely comtemptible, and thus the proper objects of ridicule when they get caught lighting their shoes and things like that.

There's no distinction except the respective range of Zeros and 747s.

I am appalled at the confounding of the suicide attack of a warrior in military uniform, flying a marked military aircraft into an enemy warship, in time of war, with the treachery of a sneaking fanatic, murdering or attempting to murder helpless civilians.

It's not Starship Troopers--the uni doesn't make you special. The Kamikazes would have happily crashed their planes into the Empire State Building and the White House. The 9/11 guys would have dressed up if you'd let them use the Enola Gay.

Dressed up?

They would have worn Carmen Miranda outfits.

Heck, they would have worn pig leather if they had the bomb.

And I must demur at the idea that the kamikaze were 'warriors'. Most of them had minimal training, were underage, and were lied to just as the jihadists are.
