There once was a guy who was so inept, he couldn't even light his own underwear on fire. This is today's headline news: They gave him multiple life terms in prison:
Underwear Bomber Abdulmutallab Sentenced to Life in Prison - ABC News: "Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried to bring down Northwest flight 253 over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009 with an underwear bomb, said he was was "proud to kill in the name of God" before he was sentenced to multiple life sentences today in a Detroit courtroom.He's an example of what you get when you mix fanaticism with stupidity: a guy who was conned into taking an airline flight with what he thought was a bomb in his drawers. When the "bomb" failed to ignite, he was immediately made out to the the poster boy for violent jihad -- a bad negro who tried to kill innocent white US people with a bomb.
"Today is a day of victory and God is great," said Abdulmutallab, 25. He also said that al Qaeda would one day be victorious, and that acts like his will continue until "the righteous servants of Allah inherit the world."
"The defendant has never expressed doubt or remorse about his mission," said Judge Nancy Edmunds in imposing four life sentences plus 50 years. "To the contrary, he sees that mission as divinely inspired and a continuing mission.""
He's so convinced that he was the real deal, he even made his ludicrous pronouncement in the court. It still hasn't dawned on this guy that it was a setup from the git-go, and he's just taking a fall for the military-industrial-security complex.
One simply doesn't get on an airliner bound for the US without the proper papers -- except for this guy. He didn't even have a visa, but made it all the way to Detroit. Don't even try that unless you want to languish in your own third-world dictatorship's CIA-sponsored torture chamber.
Abdulmutallab, another misguided youth who wants to strike out at the killers and oppressors of his co-religionists, doesn't realize that he's just a patsy, and grist for the propaganda mill. There's a million guys willing to walk into that meat grinder, but nothing any of them do will have the least effect, because the US government is afraid of terrorists -- it's terrified of being found out by its own citizens.
Eventually, they'll figure out that dumb would-be jihadis are being duped into these futile attacks for the sole purpose of keeping the anxiety level of the US public at a constant level of unease. Fear and uncertainty about the future are two very effective tools for suppressing any expression of dissatisfaction with the current regime.
The oligarchs haven't yet managed to steal everything that isn't nailed down -- but they're working on it!
