But, if someone thinks they're going to kill a couple of thousand innocent people because the only way they'll get laid is because a long dead prophet promised them dead virgins in heaven, then I don't mind making their life here a living hell. Even if it doesn't gleen terribly useful information, letting martyr wannabees know that they could get hurt a lot, and not become martyrs any time soon, might just discourage the weaker of the wimps into doing something more productive with their life.
