I read it in a newspaper it must be true

I’ve just read an absolutely superb article from yesterday’s Sunday Mirror

Terror chiefs are also targeting fanatics who suffer other lethal blood diseases such as hepatitis and dengue fever in order to increase their "kill rate" from an explosion. The chilling new threat is revealed in papers distributed to British military camps in Iraq and across Europe.

Under the heading "HIV/Hepatitis" the document states: "There is evidence that terrorists might be deliberately recruiting volunteers with diseases that are spread by blood transference."

Experts have found that bones and other blood-spattered fragments from a suicide bomber could penetrate the skin of a victim 50 metres away and infect them.

Someone, somewhere is making all this nonsense up and feeding it to the media. Which begs a simple question, Why?

Stay tuned for next week’s gripping installment of ‘Joe Public will swallow any old crap’ when a major national newspaper discovers that Al Qaeda operatives are planning to shove fireworks up the arses of chickens infected with the H5N1 virus.

Actually I saw something like that a year or so back, but the jist of which was that HIV/AIDS victims could be recruited far easier than other people,and took less grooming/brainwashing (depending on your stance). Sick

The more people are told this sort of codswallop the easier it is for them to believe. Al Qu'eda means 'teacher' I believe. Fwiw, I have never swalloed the rubbish that purports that there's some kind of international network of Al Qu'eda terror cells. You might just as well say that there's an international network of evil CofE Sunday Schools plotting the downthrow of the Muslim people. Actually, that's more plausible.

A Dastardly Plan,indeed.

Fireworks up infected chicken's arses you say ? A fiendish and fowl plan indeed.

A fine site you have here Mr Zucconi. WOuld you like me to smith a fine poem in its honour on my site ?

Kind Regards

All the newspapers are full of the Iranian 'Nuclear issue'. It's all spin.
Iran's danger to America is not its nuclear program but its plan to introduce a euro-based energy exchange. The real story is the Iranian Oil Bourse, which, if allowed to succeed, would expose the USA’s 8 Trillion Dollar public deficit, a deficit which is only sustainable by the USPetrodollar hegemony, which Iran has stated it will break on 23rd March 2006 (see )

Any other news story is just spin - like the non-existant WMD's in Iraq. The Iraq War was fought to maintain the US Petrodollar hegemony too! See
