Iraq Suicide Bombers

At first blush it might be hard to think any good at all could come from the devastation left after the smoke clears minutes after a suicide bomber in Iraq or other nation pulls the trigger or pushes the button.

But when you stop and think about it from a long-term biological point of view, great good is done. So long as the idiot suicide bomber didn't make a deposit at the local sperm or egg bank, the person has permanently removed him/herself from the gene pool. This is a good thing!

I realize those innocent people who die in each blast are also removed from the human genome pool, and they may have made enormously good contributions to the improvement of the species, but we have to focus on the good. I also hope that each day there are fewer of these zealots who think that killing other innocent people is an acceptable way to further their casue.

While we are at it, tell me, why do these people wear hoods all of the time? Isn't that cowardly? If they are such great warriors and heros, don't they want other terrorists in the future to know who they are?

The last paragraph above dealing with hoods and cowardice was written in the most sarcastic tone as I could muster at the time. But some visitors to this blog didn't pick up on that. Many of us already know the terrorists are cowards - that is why they cover their faces. They know if we recognized them the full might and power of the US Military Machine would bear down upon them so swiftly and with such force that they would think they were in the high-speed lane on the expressway leading to Allah.

It goes without saying that many of those killed by the Iraq suicide bombers are service men and woman from the United States and other allied forces. We all know a gapping emotional wound that heals with an ugly scar is displayed by all loved ones who are left behind. If you know these people and can help them, do so.
