Monday Madness

I don't know if you saw this article on the latest news but this is absolutely unthinkable. They are using animals as well as children for suicide bombers now. What has this world come to? You can read the article below:

Animals killed in suicide attacks Afghanistan
SunMonday 30th November, 2009

In their latest ploy to cause maximum damage to international forces stationed in Afghanistan, the Taliban is using donkey suicide bombs to attack British troops in southern Afghanistan.Recently, a senior British Army officer and six other military personnel survived an attack when a tethered donkey laden with explosives was detonated as their armoured vehicle passed in southern Afghanistan.“We’d spotted the donkey tethered to a tree as we were on our way down south to monitor an operation that had been going on that day, but thought nothing of it. There are donkeys around everywhere,” The Times quoted an officer, as saying.Troops in Afghanistan have been attacked by a boy with a wheelbarrow full of explosives and a bicycle with a bomb attached, but the explosion south of Garmsir in southern Helmand province is thought to be the first using tethered livestock.

This is totally insane. I sure hope the President's speech and unveiling of his plan for Afghanistan tomorrow night at 7pm is going to be strategic in managing this craziness.
