A (Not Quite) Suicide Bomber Story – Updated With More Details

| February 14, 2012

You may have heard about the Israeli Embassy bombings of recent days?

This may well be an attempt at doing the same…
Iranian bombs himself

Two  bombs went off on Sukhumvit 71 road, injuring five people, including an Iranian man, the reports said.

According to a television news report, an Iranian man carrying a black bag hurled the first bomb at a taxi after the driver refused to accept him as a passenger. The cab driver was among the injured, reports said.

When police arrived at the scene, the foreigner then threw a second bomb at them, but it hit a tree and bounced back towards him and exploded. He lost both of his legs in the blast, the report said.

There’s not much more to the story yet.

In any other context this would be a tragedy, and I sympathize with the others injured… but I sure would like to have seen the look on the Iranian’s face the second before the BOOM.

Update: Israel to “settle the score” for Bangkok attack

JERUSALEM – An Israeli Cabinet minister says his country will “settle the score” with the perpetrators of a bombing attempt in Bangkok.

An Iranian man fleeing wounded from an explosion at a rented Bangkok house lobbed a grenade at police that rebounded and blew off one of his legs Tuesday in a series of blasts. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the explosion, which wounded four civilians, was an attempted terrorist attack backed by Iran.

    Hope the tree is okay!…..Ya know, there are 72 virgins somewhere going, ‘whew!!! Thank allah, the moron is still alive.’

    Doesn’t sound like a suicide bomber to me. If it bounced off a tree back on him, he wasn’t originally intending to be part of the explosion, was he?

    @6….Good point…He could of been wearing those Israeli jeans, the ones with the magnets that make em infertile…..looks like they work!

    Considering that Cobra Gold 12 (all over Dvids Hub) is ongoing and we have a BDE’s worth of Soldiers and Marines in country right now I wonder if that was the target.

    Yeah…he’s a good muslim now…good and fucked up.

    Check out the article on FOX News…they actually have a couple of shots of this dip shit laying on the sidewalk, bloody stumps and all.

    You’re a No-Go at the “Throw the Bomb” station.

    Too bad more police pursuits don’t end up this way, with the perpetrator making the pursuit a walk in the park for the police.
    Cue Monty Python (“Come back and fight like a man!”)

    If you want to get good at something, you have to practice, practice, practice. Oh… wait… no test runs for suicide bombers.

    #9 Gah!

    Hopefully the blast also defused his family jewels, and we’ll be spared the horror of knowing that he might be able to reproduce.

    Now that he failed at the bomb hurling event, lets see how well he can swim. 😀 Take your medicine, you terrorist piece of shit.

    He is standing up (I mean laying down)for his religious beliefs. Check out the YouTube vido taken by an American on scene. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnuv81ngoAI
