We're Number One! We're Number One! (Okay, not us, but bestest pals.)
Newsweek has published a list of 139 suicide bombers in Iraq. Guess which country had the most?
Hint: What country was the birthplace of the vast majoirty of 9/11 hijackers?
Yes, our pals in Saudi Arabia produced 53 of the 139 suicide bombers on this list. Coming in a distant second for suicide bombers in Iraq: Iraq! 18 of these vicious scumbags were homegrown. Coincidentally, another 18 are from an unknown country. Newsweek has a little trouble with the math; they say 139, but the countries of origin list has 142 total. Oopsie!
How many from evil Iran? Zero, though I'm sure some of those unknown guys were Iranian. In fact, I expect some right wing talk show host to conjecture that ALL the unknown bombers were Iranian before long. Expect some Arab talk show host to speculate they were all Israeli.
What about growing up Saudi makes folks so cranky? They are our bestest pals in the region, so it can't be anything about their nearly perfect political or economic system. I bet we can blame it on that goofy God they worship. Only one God, who created Adam, Eve and the universe in six days and rested on the seventh! Who wouldn't go crazy being told such wacky stuff?
