Internet Instruction Manuals

Picture credit:
chilling video circulating on terrorist websitesThe Telegraph reports that a terrifying video is making the rounds of some terrorist websites: how to make your own, do-it-yourself suicide belt.

The 26-minute tape gives a detailed, step-by-step guide on how to pack the belt with shrapnel and high explosive, and then detonate it on board for maximum loss of life... A voice-over explains exactly where the would-be bomber should sit on the vehicle in order to maximise the blast... is thought to have been shot in the Palestinian territories, where Arab militants have frequently used suicide belts in attacks on Israeli citizens...

...The video is among dozens of terrorist self-teaching aids circulating on jihadi message boards and websites, alongside manuals on the manufacture of poisonous chemicals and bacteria, urban guerrilla warfare tactics, and the use of rocket-propelled grenades and missiles.

Oh, if only we hadn't invaded Iraq! Oh, wait, you say these videos are from the Palestinian territories? And they may pre-date the Iraq invasion? Oh. Forget it.
