‘Suicide’ vests found in Schools

Recently, the USMC found suicide (homicide) bomber vests in an Iraqi school. The article makes it clear that those vests were put there by “fedayeen” (imported murders), and that made me wonder: Who makes these vests?

I read about the vests, and learned that they’re leather, made to look like a ‘regular’ vest (never trust anybody wearing a vest in Mid East heat), with composition C4 plastic explosive and ball bearings, the better to spread the misery. Although the MSNBC link to the story doesn’t show it, they were on hangers, and individually wrapped in plastic, just like commercial clothing.

Now, just what kind of opportunistic piece of crap decided to go into the commercial manufacture of clothing designed to kill innocents? Googling yielded no results, nobody claims to manufacture these. I want the tag on the back, what does it say? Product of what country? How do you wash them? (Dry clean only – absolutely no heat, do not apply 18 volts across the wires in the left pocket)? I’ve seen news coverage of the Stupidfata, and it sickened me, but I never even guessed that there were ‘standard suicide vests’ for these mudrerous stooges to wear. Someday, I hope the opportunistic piece of filth who made these dies of his own handiwork, and those who commision instruments to murder others are beneath contempt; hell awaits them.

May you manufacturers of the death of civilians rot in hell, castigated by those who wore your garments of hate.

I wanted to close this with a clever little thing to make readers laugh. I failed.

National Amber Alert Bill Passes

A bill creating a national Amber Alert system could be signed today by President George W. Bush.

Congress approved the bill Thursday as House members passed the bill 400-25 hours before the Senate approved it on a 98-0 vote.

The bill is named after Amber Hagerman, 9, of Arlington who was kidnapped from her home and later found murdered.

The legislation creates a national system to find kidnapped children.

It includes tougher penalties for child kidnappers, molesters and pornographers. It also gives money to states and local communities for equipment and training on the network.

This is good news, I’m pretty sure. I haven’t read the details, and the devil is in the details. Here in the DFW area, when a kid is reported abducted, the TV’s have a scroll across the bottom and the highway info signs all display the lookout information. Now, I don’t want to see abducted kid from Washington state within 10 minutes of their disappearance (until we finally get those Star Trek transporter gadgets), but I like the emphasis on proactively looking for these kids.

Sign it, Mr. President.
