Reader comment on item: Stupid Terrorists

Submitted by Darwin Barrett (United States), Oct 4, 2005 at 20:22

The terrorists can operate with disdain because there is no down side. If caught, they have proof of their jihad, and if they go to prison their jihad continues as they train and recruit with other convicted terrorists. The US will even supply them with a muslim cleric to support their development. If they are successful in their terrorist acts they have earned their trip to paradise. Alive or dead the terrorists are islamic heroes.
