You know it is strange though that they rarely go after politicians

Or am I wrong about that?

Have there been a lot of these nuts going after established politicians?

I know there is security around them but so what there suicidal aren’t they?

So does this lend to the theory that much of these are black ops?

Security is too tight.

Why waste resources with a surgical strike when you can get the same reaction with a larger net?

Aren’t they suicidal?

Or the much more likely , logical and realistic theory that it is easier to take control over a few victims then say a politician with an armed security team.

Much the same reasoning behind why do bullies pick on the smallest or weakest targets.

No. The vast majority of operatives are not suicidal.

No, that's not actually true.

In Pakistan they do go after politicians.

And the Middle East

But frankly I can’t think of 1 Western honcho they have ever gone after

I could be wrong.

Or this may be significant?

Not to say much....but....

If they went after the Politicians, or say, a military instillation...that might *imply* that they were actually against our nations as a whole....after all, even in Escape from New York, they kidnapped the President when presented with the opportunity...

Now, it could very well be that the "terrorists" are looking to strike fear, terror, into the heathen populace. Perhaps it's that while "Die a jihadi death, get 72 virgins in heaven" sort of thing. Perhaps, it is a series of ill-thought out attacks of opportunity (yeah, yeah...I play Pathfinder...Rogue FTW!)...

Or even worse, perhaps it is a series goaded on by the puppet string pulling alphabet agencies quietly slaving away behind the scene...choreographing everything...



Just a late night rambleon...

I agree in part. Imho it is the fear factor. Killing a politicians is not going to create widespread panic among the populous. Maybe if it was a whole bunch of them at once, or we might just be relieved. Ok I said that in jest, don't jump me.

It is the killing of regular people going about their lives that leads us to think, that could be my family member, or that could be me, that does it. The randomness and suddenness also play a part, we begin to think we are not safe anywhere any time. Much more eEffective.

Because they are cowards. Notice how they always choose to attack innocent unarmed people?

The only time they ever attack anyone armed, they hide and try to use bombs to "fight" them.

We do the same thing, we call them mine fields and we aren't proud of them.


They are cowards, everything they do merely proves this. I think the terrorists should be tried, hung, then dipped in pig fat. They will go to hell according to their religion. So let's " pork em" kill em and bacon wrap them. You want to be a religious extremist okay, we will use your religion against you.

Perhaps they should be bacon wrapped while alive…wouldn’t that be better?

Cowards who commit suicide?

I do agree often they are cowardly when they just shot an innocent civilian.

do you think jehadis have stories about near death experiences where they saw the 72 virgins. Thus permeating the myth. " It's true, i got knocked out by a grenade. My heart stopped. Allah brought me back from heaven where i had many many virgins. Ur good to go*

lol. I also heard the virgin thing isn't true. Is it? I know radicals take a different view on the torrah.

Now why would "politicians" do that to themselves?
