Any particular reason you used the term 'Homicide bomb'? I know it killed people, but that's the purpose of a bomb. Saying 'homicide bomb' seems a bit redundant to me.

Anyway, I wonder if this is fallout from the Bhutto assassination, or if it was a means of covering up the prior assassination to cover Mushariff's role in Bhutto's death.

You know thats a good question... I just copied word for word what Fox News put up there.. I wonder if they choose to use that term for any particular reason.. Anyhow it is strange that we did not hear too much about this from MSM... I figured it was a message someone was sending to the High Court of Pakistan with regards to the whole ruling passed down to Musharref.. although I know that is old news.. Still something is going on over there...

I guess homicide bomb as opposed to the homosexual bomb the big D was working on.

Pretty sure this is the not-so-new trend in the MSM, calling these people who blow themselves up to kill others "homicide bombers" rather than "suicide bombers". The idea, I believe, is not to give the bomber any pathos or stir any empathy for their cause by calling it a suicide.

The author shoots the whole thing down in the first few words of his story though.



A suicide bomber blew himself up.....
