Okay i just could not believe my eyes what the main stream media are putting out as serious news/propaganda. Im not sure if this is already post as either news or short stories (its that rediculous). The msm are claiming that ISIS have stepped it up a notch on their reign of terror by upgrading their arsenal. The new weapon of choice according to british military expert is the SCORPION BOMB. Thats right a tin with scorpions put in them. I understand scorpions can be lethal but this is rediculous. I think there may be more of a danger to life by getting hit by the launched can?

Is this a way of keeping ISIS in the media spotlight or do these people really see this as a threat? Could anyone shine light on this and inform me if there are any other new weapons on the black market e.g hamster bombs or bumble bee grenades?

SCORPION BOMBS

I think a scorpion PISTOL is more lethal ,even at .32.

Stranger than fiction.

news.nationalgeographic.com... while hardy creatures i dont see them doing so well being "set off in bombs" and as they tend to hybernate in colder climates most of the north would be safe at least tell thaw.....scorpions really>? rats with plauge would be far more effective and are at least a tested delivery system or even bats .hell dont most Australians live around things 10x more dangerous then your average scorpion and end up being fine so not to worried about scorpion bombs.

edit to add so they arent using explosives to spread them around so they may be a semi effective terror weapon (depending on phobias) but i guess there is historical context for using them this way so perhaps they are the traditionalist jhaddis and we can expect other old obsucre practices to come back

I wonder how many scorpions are jammed into one bomb. Too many they will kill each other off during the trip. Scorpions usually don't last long once their exoskeleton has been damaged. I wonder if there is some type of padding provided with in the bomb?

The fat tail scorpion is the only scorpion over there that has a high kill rate. Doesn't seem to me to be a very good plan. I do however see some media producer creating such things.

Going full retard seems to be both the media and IS' plan here. The pathetic posturing and fact free reporting is entirely symbiotic.

I'll scratch your back...

I wonder how many of them were stung in this challenge? Wouldn't the scorpions be dead from the explosion?

That would certainly # up someone's day...

I wonder, though, were the wasps/hornets actually inside the bomb or were they disturbed out of a nearby nest because of the explosion?

Padding in the tin may not work because at high speed they will be flying into eachother and causing damage, maybe they have mini seatbelts, or mini scorpion proof vests.

ATS at its best.

In the description says they were under a rock blocking the road. I took a little liberty. Glad you liked it…

I can see that. Less cruel, so no one has to worry about Ingrid Newkirk and PETA invading their country. Now that would be a real mess.

That's a very stupid weapon. Wonder how they sound when they throw them.

Scorpion bombs, and people want to insist these types of jokers are a threat to our freedom or constitution. Guess what's really a threat to our safety? Arming countless militant groups all over the world, other people being killed by those arms swear lifelong vendettas against us. Sounds a bit like Iron Man 2? We let our government and military put the target on our backs, and they keep painting new ones. Disgusting, cowardly people populate this formerly great United States.

“Scorpions are robust – even if they are launched a couple of miles, when the canister breaks thousands are flung out and start crawling all around.

He said the 2ft bombs were not causing mass casualties but had a massive “psychological impact”.


I don`t know what to say about this story, I`m at a loss for words.
