Joke all you want, it actually was a thing...

In antiquity the common technique was to verrrrrry carefully spit on the business end of the scorpion. But that requires nerves of steel and perfect aim. Resorting to a method unavailable to the ancient desert-dwellers in Iraq, they placed the scorpions in a refrigerator to induce torpor before each photo session. The resulting photograph and X-ray of the replica scorpion bomb of Hatra was a smashing success and one of my favorite souvenirs of this book.



As said in the OP's article, it's psychological warfare. A prior post in this thread mentioned pig's blood... same damn thing, really. There's absolutely no logical reason drizzling pig blood on an enemy would be considered anything other than a reason to go wash up a bit, but if any country fighting ISIS had the cajones to do it the uproar and furor would be deafening because it would be a purely psychological weapon.

This sort of reminds me of the story I read last week, where Afghan police thought Al Quaeda was using "bird bombs". They shot and killed a bird with an antenna and what they thought was a bomb strapped to it. Turns out it was an endangered species wearing a tracking device from some conservation group...

Its ok we been painting out bullets and bombs with pig blood for decades now. Not a one of em got their virgins.


General Pershing did that during the Muslim uprising in the Philippines, early 1900's, caught fifty of them, tied them to stakes, then dug a pit, scattered pigs blood about, coated the ammo with pigs blood, shot 49 of the Muslims, three them in the pit, scattered more pigs blood on them, then released the 50'th man, did not have any trouble after that for tens of years. (you can find that in google, if you care to look)

Right? Here is the first article I read claiming the Taliban had loaded a bird with explosives. It's from the Daily Mail, but several major news sources were reporting the same thing. If you search Google, you can find the follow ups stating it was just a tracking collar, clearly labeled witb the conservation group's name. Spoiler: The 'explosives' were a result of them shooting the tiny lithium battery that powered the thing.

A scorpion bomb? Really?

Has ISIS really stooped to "Cobra Commander" of G.I. Joe fame levels of absurdity when it comes to new weapon designs?

I wouldnt be to scared of ISIS because its just a mere distraction to whats really going to happen. ISIS is apart of the The Muslim brother Hood and very well push the destruction of USA.

Reminds me of the WW2 Bat bombs. They never came to be in the battlefield but we did spend two million on development of the nutty idea. Desperate times call for desperate measures I suppose, definitely thinking outside the box.
