    Excerpts From an Associated Press Report....

    Mentally Disabled Women Used in Bombings

    Feb 1, 7:11 PM (ET)
    By STEVEN R. HURST


    BAGHDAD (AP) - Two women described as mentally disabled and strapped with remote-control explosives - and possibly used as unwitting suicide bombers - brought carnage Friday to two pet bazaars, killing at least 91 people in the deadliest day since Washington flooded the capital with extra troops last spring.

    Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, Iraq's chief military spokesman in Baghdad, said the women had Down syndrome and may not have known they were on suicide missions, but gave no further details on how authorities pieced together the evidence. He also said the bombs were detonated by remote control.

    The coordinated blasts - coming 20 minutes apart in different parts of the city - appeared to reinforce U.S. claims al-Qaida in Iraq may be increasingly desperate and running short of able-bodied men willing or available for such missions.

    But they also served as a reminder that Iraqi insurgents are constantly shifting their strategies in attempts to unravel recent security gains around the country. Women have been used in ever greater frequency in suicide attacks because they often encounter less scrutiny by security officials...

    Police said the woman wearing the bomb sold cream in the mornings at the market and was known to locals as "the crazy lady."...

    Even the use of the handicapped in suicide bombings is not unprecedented in Iraq. In January 2005, Iraq's interior minister said insurgents used a disabled child in a suicide attack on election day. Police at the scene of the bombing said the child appeared to have Down syndrome...

    Aint them al Qaida boys just a special bunch??

    After they run out of nut cases it would be nice to get at them face to face.

    Saddam was paying Palestinian families a big chunk for every suicide bomber they prduced, some of them were teen aged girls, and you know how well balanced they are.

    Too bad we can't do it right over there.

    Let's dig up Harry Truman, Maybe there's enough DNA to clone.

    Sissy,only one thing these people know is an iron hand.
    This is why Saddam had control.

    Well... it certainly worked on the recently banished 'site terrorists' that so often ran amok around here.

    Congrats on being such a well read and well informed consumer of world news! I would have thought a perceptive person like yourself would have identified this thread as OT without opening it. Apparently you found the content of the title ambiguous.

    Thanks for your opinion and input. Have a nice evening.

    In case of war, active shooter, or a terrorist attack, will YOU have the stones to shoot to kill an armed or explosive laden female or child?

    I ask that question in EVERY class for Armed Professionals or Citizens I have.

    Shooting Coach.............hard question to answer until the time comes but when it does and you answer yes your life is changed forever.

    The problem with this is the fact that the news media will give this it's 15 second blurb and then it will be gone. Our Marines shoot that Down's syndrome woman and we get 5 minutes of airplay on every station in the world for the next 30 days and our lovely media here in the US will be the first on the bandwagon.

    Like George Bush taking down the twin towers or blowing up the levees in New Orleans? If that does not apply then I apologize. I have just heard so much crap that isn't true that I become skeptical too.

    Another question: where are the people in this country who claim to be oh so concerned about the rights and privileges of either women or the disabled? They should be up in arms about this.

    Kinda quiet, aren't they?

    Isn't that the most cowardly action you have ever heard of? What kind of a man would stoop so low as to use the innocense of those afflicted with "Downs" to be a carrier of a bomb? I have a couple of other questions here also. Why would they bomb a pet bazaar where there are few if any police and no soldiers? Why else would those cowards bomb anything of their own country? Surely they know that those actions are making the rest of the Muslims in their country hate their worthless militant factions even more. This gets harder and harder to imagine that the militant factions of Al Quida spelling? are hoping to gain anything by bombing pet bazaars and killing their own countrymen in the process. ONe can only hope that this kind of action will help to turn the tide against all of these idiots and end this kind of thing world wide. Dan

    Sure, Flincher, Don't know if your are internet challenged, but I'd be glad to do it for you.

    Looks like Bill1949 has posted a link for you, but it isn't working. I'll fix it so you can click on it.

    Try this one!

    It's a world gone mad that so many Americans believe we are the bad guys.

    Flincher, If you don't want to believe it, that is your prerogative, and no amount of the truth will do you a bit of good.

    It seems you already have your mind made up that we are the bad guys and Al Qaeda are the good guys who behead people and use women and children as bombers against unsuspecting people.

    Ok home gamers; let's assume for sake of debate these women bombers weren't developmentally disabled at all. Let's assume Iraqi officials fabricated the Down's description just to discredit members of al Qaeda - as if that were somehow necessary. Golly, if someone prefers, we'll all suppose (just suppozin' mind you) that the bombers weren't women at all. Maybe a couple of effeminate(?) cross dressers conspired to blow themselves and 91 or so otherwise generally innocent victims, up.

    Ok, now that we've resolved that issue, perhaps the doubters will share their best and most convincing argument(s) about how al Qaeda operates from the high moral ground.


    Thanks.
