As you can see, I've added SCOTUS and VBS.TV to our links. SCOTUS is more a reminder to myself to try and get to a place where I can better understand judicial jargon and basically not put my foot in my mouth while bemoaning Thursday's supreme court travesty. VBS.TV is another new one for me and I have to caution sensitive patrons that it's recent series of video reports from Liberia are nothing less than soul shattering, but it's stuff people should be aware of none-the-less. Thank you to Zach S and John-Paul for making me aware of these resources.

so what turns a doctor into a suicide bomber

Is it the moral outrage that comes with witnessing a foreign power kill civilians when they happen to be at the same funeral or marketplace as a high ranking Taliban leader mixed with a mandatory dose of religious fanaticism?

I find it hard to believe it coincidence that this attack took place at a major staging ground for illegal US drone attacks and I'm sure jsoc, the cia, and "blackwater select"( What is it? Fried Chicken?)agree. EDIT , DOUBLE EDIT

It's very easy to call a suicide bomber a coward because of course almost everyone that chooses to take a life is a coward, but can't the concept of scale be applied to cowardice? Is remote control mass murder nobler than mass murder/suicide?
