Bur here goes.
A massive car bomb, fizzing and smoking but fundamentally failing to go off is noticed by an ambulance crew; another one is found nearby that didn't even get to the smoking stage. Today, two cretins in a land rover type vehicle attempt to torch themselves to death whilst blowing up half of Glasgow airport. not only do they fail, but they can't even manage to suicide themselves in the process.
It occurred to me during today that the calibre of kids who are willing to become obsessive, kneejerk, reactionary, unthinking tools of the fundamentalist movement; willing to take their own lives in the name of Allah because (according to the Daily Mail) some bloke got a fucking knighthood... must be relatively low. Basically. Yes, they will strike "lucky", as it were, every so often, and people will die. And it will be bad. But hopefully, they will continue to be a bunch of inept amateurs whose knowledge of explosives comes from a couple of sessions, in the rocky deserts of Pakistan, bolstered by the stupendous self belief of the idiot.
It comes to something, however, that I feel uncomfortable writing this, even despite the knowledge of my trusty 11-13 muskateers (ie: it's highly unlikely any potential eedjits are going to even find this post, never mind be incensed by it).
Your comments, please, my trusty crew...
