Down Syndrome Women Used As Suicide Bombers



I have to admit that although I was surprised at first, I wasn't really shocked, knowing the track record of these ruthless terrorists. Friday, in two separate crowded pet markets in Baghdad, Down Syndrome women were used to kill 91, wounding many more.
One of the pet bazaars had a history of of being bombed, but with violence declining in the capital it had regained popularity, and a place to stroll on Fridays, the Muslim day of prayer.

The use of the handicapped in suicide bombings is not unprecedented in Iraq. In January 2005, Iraq's interior minister said insurgents used a disabled child in a suicide attack on election day last Spring. Police at the scene of the bombing said the child appeared to have Down syndrome.

What saddens me is the general disrespect that some groups have for others. The fact that they do something this evil only adds to my discust. I know that someday they will be judged for their wrong doing.

I'm amazed at the level they will stoop too, although I guess I shouldn't be. How awful for people to do that to other human beings :(

This is just awful. I wasn't aware of this but not surprised. God help that sick group of brain washed individuals. Those poor innocent people!
