The 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... |
...it 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.
