Maybe I'm just dumb, but I just can't see the logic in suicide bombings. In Iraq, these bombings are extremely frequent, as we all know. And,
essentially, it is Muslim terrorists blowing up other Muslims. Same thing with the recent attacks in Egypt. To me, this makes no sense at all. What
is this possibly going to accomplish, for anyone, by killing all these people?
These terrorists are accomplishing nothing besides taking innocent lives, many of them sharing their religion/race/nationality, although in the vast
majority of cases, not their extremist ideologies. Maybe that is the key, the extremism. I don't know. I just know that by any reasonable
standard, it is a senseless waste of precious human life, and those that die are dying for absolutely nothing, both victims and perpetrators.
I'm hoping to start a good discussion here about the possible motivations for suicide bombing. I can't think of anything that is in the least bit
convincing. I'm at a loss to understand the fundamental why of it all.
Here's hoping for an enlightening discussion...
