That's true enough: Down Syndrome can be easily noticed in wo/men; I've seen my fair share, however, what I've always wondered is why they share
very familiar physical characteristic -- I guess a Google search could answer that question.
But, a Down Syndrome suicide bomber could possibly not know the ramnifications of his acts, could he? Let me rephrase that: someone born with Down
Syndrome could not rationaly make the descision to sacrifice ones own life for said cuase, could they? This has been itching at me ever since I read
this; I wonder what conviced this person to do what he/she did, and the fact that he/she must have pulled the switch [or however they detonate
themselves], or if it was done by remote. I guess I'll have to do more research into Down Syndrom. I'm well aware they are considered "retarded",
not to sound offensive, so I'm having qaulms with this entire story. Well, let's put this into perspective: obviously, as is evident in the mundane
medical and social reform programs in Iraq, a child born with Down Syndrome may not have recieved the best medical treatment and pyscological care for
him/her and respected family to cope with this detrimental disorder, unless, of course, he/she came from a wealthy family [why would a wealthy family
allow thier child to commite an act like this, unless they abhored this disorder and in some disgustingly vile countenance announced that this
sacrifice would whisk thier child closer to Allah?] and they were able to have the proper care deployed. A child born with Down Syndrome into a poor
Iraqi family, if one can make an educated guess, obviously may be looked down upon and will obviously be relatively left to cope with himself, or
treated with very mundane care: so this child 'may' have come from a poor Iraqi family..
I don't know. My non-sensical babble is sounding too tautalougous, I'll leave you lot to chew and respond if you want.
