Taliban Suicide Bomber Says Farewell To His Fellow Jihadis By Accidentally Blowing Them Up


Suicide vest: $225 , 1992 Toyota pickup for attack: $4,239 , Video tape for farewell message: $3.50, Accidentally hitting the detonate button while hugging your buddies: Priceless!

Yep, it's almost too good to be true but Reuters here is reporting that a Taliban suicide bomber, all rigged up in his suicide vest, was saying goodbye to his fellow jihadi comrades and accidentally detonated himself, killing six of this fellows as well as himself. Now, if that isn't justice, what is? Here's some of the details:

(hat tip Doug at Sondrak)


A would-be suicide bomber accidentally blew himself up on Thursday, killing six other militants as he was bidding them farewell to leave for his intended target, the Interior Ministry said."The terrorist was on his way to his destination and saying good-bye to his associates and then his suicide vest exploded," a statement from the ministry said.

The incident happened in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan where mainly British troops are struggling against a growing Taliban-led insurgency.

Can't you just hear it happening? He's just about ready to get behind the wheel of the Toyota pickup to head into town and al-Blotto says, "Oh brother, just ONE MORE hug for us before you praise allah!" ....and he walks back into their welcoming arms and then, just one simple pebble catches on his flip flop, a little stumble, a misplaced flick of his right hand and KABOOM!

Imagine the savings in all of this for the American military - 7 dead Taliban and zero spent on hellfires!

Question of the day: Does a jihadist suicide bomber that screws up and kills six of his fellow jihadists actually get the 72 virgins?

Ha-ha-ha-ha. Thanks for the Friday laugh. When you consider that the outcome would have been innocent people being murdered by these sick freaks - it's sweet poetic justice that these losers have blow up themselves up instead.

Ah, islam, that peaceful, bomb-making, murderous "religion."

Brent and Christie,

Every once in a great while it seems that a lone jihadi will make things right in the world by pulling a stunt like this - it doesn't make it worth it but it's sure as hell fun when it does happen. I'm thinking you could hear the words, "Oh Shittttttttt" echoing through the valley...
