One of my friends said that no matter what we try to do to combat terrorism, the terrorists will continue to try to meet and foil our new methods.
Unfortunately, my friend was correct.
Britain is facing a new Al Qaeda terror threat from suicide ‘body bombers’ with explosives surgically inserted inside them.
Until now, terrorists have attacked airlines, Underground trains and buses by secreting bombs in bags, shoes or underwear to avoid detection.
But an operation by MI5 has uncovered evidence that Al Qaeda is planning a new stage in its terror campaign by inserting ‘surgical bombs’ inside people for the first time.
An enemy that is willing to endure any amount of pain - even to the point of death - to insure death of their foes - is an extremely deadly enemy.
All I can say is that I am glad I am not in charge of trying to calculate how to combat people who believe that this kind of murder is appropriate and even good. Addressing an insane and murderous enemy is a Herculean task.
