SANAA (Reuters) A suicide bomber with explosives strapped under his uniform killed more than 90 people at a military parade rehearsal in the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Monday, an attack which will alarm Washington as its involvement in the front-line state deepens.

If only Boosh would pull the troops out of Yemen, all of this violence would end. < /sarc >

Islamic bombings over there don’t matter to me. Honestly, Im more worried about getting my tires rotated today.

That had to be one pretty powerful device. This is what a tightly gathered group of ~100 people looks like:

If you can imagine a blast radius that would be lethal to 90 of them, and then wound an additional 200 beyond that...just damn.

For comparison, there are many stories where a selfless soldier or Marine throws himself on a grenade and his single body absorbs enough of the blast so spare those in close proximity. Those standing in the immediate vicinity of this guy had to have been absolutely shredded. I'm guessing at least one claymore, or equivalent on each side.

Death toll is sure to climb as the hours pass. A lethal additive to these explosives is a liberal coating of rat poison to the shrapnel. It inhibits the blood's ability to clot. Thus, severely wounded victims slowly bleed out and die.

Makes sense that would be about 2 platoons or a battalion if they were in drilling formations. I’m guessing a vest with lots of shrapnel would do the trick and be undetected in formation. If they were wearing packs it would be even more unobtrusive and potential larger.

Thanks for the visual. It is difficult to conceive of how such a horrific casualty count could occur without it.

That’s what I was thinking. Incredible that one guy was strapped in such a way that it took out that many people.

Well, not really. The Son of Man came to save men’s (and women’s and children’s) eternal lives, not destroy them.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%209:52-56&version=KJV

Luke 9:52-56a

King James Version (KJV)

52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?

55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them ...

What happened today is that many found out that allah is just Satan masquerading as God and deceiving them away from the Cross of Salvation.

But I must admit, I have little sympathy for islamic terrorists.

Actually, you "fixed" a perfectly good statement of fact by removing some useful data and substituting a measure of redundancy.

Every bomber who kills people is a "homicide bomber." A suicide bomber rids the earth of his own sorry self, as well (saving us the trouble). And, contrary to some odd set of beliefs, there is no glory in suicide.

So, in the interest of accuracy, leave it alone. Don't let emotion triumph over logic and reason. That's the leftists' job, not ours. :)

Sorry, no. Warfarin (coumadin) in its various forms indeed is rat poison. It is also used as a therapeutic anticoagulant in humans. The thing is, it works by inhibiting the liver's production of certain clotting enzymes. This takes 5-7 days of successive doses of the drug before it becomes therapeutic. Even if there was some kind of "controlled release" mechanism coating the imbedded fragments (doubtful) and even if a large enough dose could be delivered via these fragments (doubtful) and even if systemic absorption could be maintained for 5-7 days in these traumatic, necrotic wounds (doubtful), at 5-7 days bleeding is not the concerning issue with anyone not yet surgically treated. Infection is the main problem.
