Baby Wrapped In Bomb Almost Kills Benazir Bhutto

In Pakistan an attempt was made to kill Benazir Bhutto as she passed along a road in a political campaign. The use of a baby as a bomb delivery device serves as a reminder of just how values and beliefs vary around the world and between individuals.

"It was about one or two years old, and I think it was a girl," Mrs. Bhutto recalled. "We feel it was a baby, kidnapped, and its clothes were rigged with explosives. He kept trying to hand it to people to hand to me. I'm a mother, I love babies, but the [street lights] had already gone out, and I was worried about the baby getting dropped or hurt." She would have been dead, she said, if she had not just dipped back inside her vehicle to loosen the shoes on her swollen feet.

"The baby, the bomb, it went off only feet from me; there was nothing between us but the wall of the truck," she said in an interview with The Washington Times on Tuesday.

Was the baby kidnapped? Or was some Muslim true believer thinking their baby was headed for heaven by dying for Jihad?

This is nature's way of reminding us that Muslim immigration is a bad idea.

Indeed. What kind of monsters would kill children to advance their political goals?


"...Garfield concluded that between August 1991 and March 1998 there were at least 106,000 excess deaths of children under 5, with a "more likely" worst-case sum of 227,000. (He recently updated the latter figure to 350,000 through this year.) Of those deaths, he estimated one-quarter were "mainly associated with the Gulf war." The chief causes, in his view, were "contaminated water, lack of high quality foods, inadequate breast feeding, poor weaning practices, and inadequate supplies in the curative health care system. This was the product of both a lack of some essential goods, and inadequate or inefficient use of existing essential goods."

Ultimately, Garfield argued, sanctions played an undeniably important role. "Even a small number of documentable excess deaths is an expression of a humanitarian disaster, and this number is not small," he concluded. "[And] excess deaths should...be seen as the tip of the iceberg among damages to occur among under five-year-olds in Iraq in the 1990s....The humanitarian disaster which has occurred in Iraq far exceeds what may be any reasonable level of acceptable damages according to the principles of discrimination and proportionality used in warfare....To the degree that economic sanctions complicate access to and utilization of essential goods, sanctions regulations should be modified immediately...."

The Muslims have never been reluctant to use children for military operations such as human wave assaults and mine clearing (tanks are expensive, but throw-away human lives have always been cheap in the East). From Wikipedia, concerning the Iran-Iraq war back in the 1980's:

In the Basra offensive, five human-wave attacks were met with withering fire from the Iraqis. The boy-soldiers of the Basij were particularly hard-hit, especially since they were ordered to run into minefields, in order to clear the way for the Pasdaran brigades behind them. The Iranians were also hard-hit by the employment of gas by the Iraqis.

Nice folks, huh?

I don't know if the good ol' US of A has been swamped with Pakistanis yet (like just about every European nation), but you can bet your boots it WILL happen.
This little story is the best example you can possibly get of what Pakistanis are REALLY ALL ABOUT.

Good one, dave. Wars usually don't kill children, but evil terrorist neocon wars do.

And what does your comment have to do with Randall's post? Was it a neocon who rigged up the bomb-baby?

You're such a prick.
