BAGHDAD — If there were such a thing, it would probably be rule No. 1 in the teaching manual for instructors of aspiring suicide bombers: Don’t give lessons with live explosives.

In what represented a cautionary tale for terrorist teachers, and a cause of dark humor for ordinary Iraqis, a commander at a secluded terrorist training camp north of Baghdad unwittingly used a belt packed with explosives while conducting a demonstration early Monday morning for a group of militants, killing himself and 21 other members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, army and police officials said.

In addition to the 22 militants who were killed, 15 others were wounded in the explosion on Monday at the militant compound, in a rural area of northeastern Salahuddin Province, according to police and army officials.

I’d say “Lifetime Achievement Darwin Award” but that would be an oxymoron.

My first thought was to wonder how many, if any, of the students actually were undercover agents working for the West.

Folks over there have PLENTY of practice blowing up things and people. They've been doing it for EONS.

Hindus and Muslims have been doing it since Islam made its way to India.

From Wikipedia:
Islam is the second-largest religion in India, making up 14.4% of the country's population with about 176 million adherents.
Islam first came to India with Arab traders as early as 7th century AD to coastal Malabar. Islam arrived in 11th century to coastal Gujarat. Islam arrived in north India in 12th century with Turkic invasions and has since become a part of India's religious and cultural heritage. Over the centuries, there has been significant integration of Hindu and Muslim cultures across India and the Muslims have played a prominent role in India's economic rise and cultural influence.

Nothing new here.
Nice to picture it, though.

Reminds me of a cartoon I once saw of a grizzled terrorist instructor strapped with explosives surrounded by his seated "students." the caption read:

"Now pay attention because I'm only going to do this once..."

Article continues:
“This is so funny,” Mr. Hashim said. “It shows how stupid they are, those dogs and sons of dogs.”

“More seriously,” he said, “it also gives me pain, as I remember all the innocent people that were killed here.”

“This is God showing justice,” Mr. Hashim continued. “This is God sending a message to the bad people and the criminals in the world, to tell them to stop the injustice and to bring peace. Evil will not win in the end. It’s always life that wins over death.”

Another resident of the area, who lives near the ministry building that was targeted last week, said: “I heard this today when my friend rang me in the afternoon to tell me about it. He was so happy as if he was getting married.”

My kind of terrorist -- a third-person aorist singular, signifying "a momentary action" in the past.

In other words, he ain't gonna do that no mo'.

This is even better than the one a few years ago where the terrorists were using cell phones as detonators but as one of the suicide bombers put his vest on he got a text message saying Happy New Year from the cell phone company. The bomb went off and killed several jihadiots.

When they make mistakes like this they are not awarded virgins. They are awarded “blow up” plastic females. All the other terrorists stand around and laugh at them.
