"He was already in flames. It was obvious he was the real psycho of the pair"

From Alex McIlveen, a taxi driver in Glasgow who took down one of the terrorists who tried to blow up an airline terminal. Betsy Newmark has the whole story and more you should read, but I do feel I must cite his effective style of citizen interdiction:

"I ran for the guy and punched him twice in the face with pretty good right hooks. Then I kicked him with full force right in the balls ..."

Good on ya, mate.

Peter F.:

I've always thought that it would be a fitting punishment for OBL and Zawahiri that, should they ever be caught alive, one member from each 9/1i victim's family would each get one punch or kick on each asshat until they were dead. Probably wouldn't get to 500 punches, let alone 2,900+, but it be personal and, at the least, therapeutic.

Funny that. I've always wanted to rip some crypto-fascist bwitch's tits off, but in your case it'd be difficult to get a good grip on a pair of flat fried eggs.

So let me get this straight.....a Scotsman gets into a fight with a burning man, and in the process he doesn't light himself up from the Scotch fumes? Man, that is one tough Scotsman! Send that man on a tour of Europe, they need the lesson on fighting terrorists. And buy him one from me!

The Listkeeper:

Unclassified reports are saying that the bombs all failed because of medical syringes that broke instead of functioning as expected.

This is probably the one time where NHS's policies of buying from the lowest bidder was a good thing....
